Artwork Guidelines 

 Do you have print ready artwork? 

If you have print ready artwork you can use our guides below to double check that we can achieve the best possible print quality. Usually for large banners and signs some images can pixelate when enlarged, therefore we require at least 300dpi or a vectored format wherever possible. 
If YES is it in a vectorised format, such as .pdf .eps .ai or similar file and set to the correct size with all fonts outlined? 
If NO then please contact us for information on our in-house design services or read the guides below. 

Does the artwork contain images, paid fonts etc? 

Images 
If so are the images at the highest resolution possible? 
We will require images at preferably 300dpi at full-size as the final output will be much superior. For flyers, business cards etc, 150dpi should be adequate. We will let you know if there is a problem with the images. We can source high resolution stock images and vectors at a cost. 
 
Fonts 
Please ensure that all fonts are embedded in the document or make sure you convert fonts to outlines to prevent any issues when sent to print.  
If we do not have the required fonts in our system, we are unable to make any minor changes to the artwork if needs be as the fonts will substitute. 

Do you know the dimensions you require your print to be? 

If so please set the artboard to the required size (e.g. A3, A4) ready for print in a PDF/EPS format with trim marks. If not don't worry, we can always advise you on the size depending on the material* it needs to be printed on or what the print is going to be used for. 
 
*Our maximum printing width is 1600mm 

Do you need us to send you a template file for the artwork? 

We can supply templates and specifications for our more complex products such as roller banners, pop up displays and die cut folders. We are more than happy to send you a PDF template so please contact us. 

Do you need any further information on our artwork guidelines? 

Please feel free to contact the team at enquiries@printdot.co.uk where one of our graphic designers will be more than happy to help you.
