Setting up your artwork:

Artwork Bleed

Eco Colour Print will provide you with a print proof on request, we try to make our service super-fast and some work doesn’t always require a printed proof so it's always a good idea to make sure everything is as it should be when you submit your artwork. Please Pay close attention to colours, page order, bleeds, spelling, fonts and pictures. We would always suggest getting another person to look at your work as a fresh pair of eyes going through the document may pick up mistakes which you have not found.

Check your pictures are high resolution, CMYK not RGB please. RGB images may look great on your screen but final print is always CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Please ensure that all embedded images are CMYK. It is also important to be aware that files converted from RGB to CMYK may alter the colour composition of the file.

Safe Area

We recommend keeping all text, logos etc. inside the safe area to avoid any possible cutting issues. There’s inevitable movement with printing and in the cutting process and if you have any text or important images to close to the finished cut line, it may be cropped and lost.

We advise you to set the safe area 5mm inside the artwork size. Please remember to include a minimum 3mm bleed to the outside of your artwork.

Crop Marks

Please provide crop marks around all of your submitted/uploaded artwork.

Imposition

Please only supply 1 version of your file, we do not require the artwork to be imposed or as "printers pairs".

File Types:

PDF Files

We prefer all artwork to be supplied in PDF format and saved as high resolution (300dpi). Please save your PDF in the correct way and we require the following:

Resolution - Choose High Resolution
Compression Settings - For colour and greyscale this should be down sampled to 300dpi with "auto compression" set on high
Font Embedding - Should be set to "embed all fonts"

Please make sure Colour is set as CMYK not RGB (RGB artwork can be converted to CMYK but this could affect your artwork which we cannot be held responsible for).

Adobe Illustrator Files

Include all embedded images and convert all text to curves. Save as an EPS file.

Adobe Photoshop Files

Set Resolution to 300dpi when starting your new document. Save file as either TIFF or JPEG.

Other files not listed above must be saved either as a EPS or JPEG.
