Artwork Guidance

These notes provide all the information required to submit artwork for our printed signs. If preparing artwork for routed or sandblasted panels please contact us.

Our prices for ‘artwork supplied electronically’ assume that we process each file once. If artwork does not comply, or, if changes are subsequently made to the content, we incur additional processing costs and reserve the right to charge accordingly. 

PDF Format – Please supply all artwork as PDF’s using the Press Quality or High Quality Print option within the relevant software. PDF’s should be supplied as final size prints with no bleed, crop or registration marks.

Preferred Media –  Electronically is the preferred  & by far the easiest method of sending us artwork.  Please use this link: or use WeTransfer to [email protected].

Otherwise we prefer to use CD, DVD or a memory stick which we can return.
