Sending Print Ready PDF files

When preparing PDF files for submission to us, you are required to follow the specifications for PDF creation from your layout application of origin (Quark, InDesign etc.). This will ensure your job is printed both quickly, problem free and to the highest standard.

We recommend that you download “How to Create Press Ready PDF files” from the Adobe® website. This document specifies easy ways to create press ready PDFs from most PC and Mac page layout and graphic design applications.
