A simple guide to submitting your artwork

For that extra peace of mind, we also offer comprehensive proofing options, from digital soft proofs through to colour calibrated contract hard proofs.

Our experienced team within our full reprographics facility are on hand to provide you with support for your artwork or any questions. Diguru use the latest software including Adobe Creative Cloud which means we can handle various file formats such as PDF, EPS, AI, JPG, TIFF image files and many more. To make sure we offer you a fast and efficient turnaround we prefer PDF files as all fonts and images should be embedded within the document.

We have a few basic guidelines to help you:

  • All artwork to be set up as CMYK. Use ICC profile coated FOGRA 39 use PDF/x-1a.
  • All files should include a minimum of 3mm bleed.
  • Include crop marks, cutter and spot UV guides (ideally as spot colours).
  • All fonts to be embedded or if in doubt outlined.
  • Pictures need to be 300dpi at print size.
  • ‘Spot Colours’ must be named within the PDF.
  • Solid areas of black, should be set to 30/20/20/100 (CMYK Values), and black text should always be 100% black.
  • If coloured text is made from a combination of CMYK colours, we would advise not to use a font that is too small or too light.
