Size guides

When designing your artwork, we print on an area larger than the actual document size.

This extra area is called the 'bleed area' and is required to ensure the ink covers the edges of the documents and does not leave an unprinted white border around the edge. We recommend a 3mm bleed on every side of any artwork you supply to us.

We also suggest that any content (text or borders) are kept a further 5mm in from the trimmed size to avoid being cut off.

We advise only using high resolution images (300dpi or above) to achieve the highest quality results. And don’t forget to make sure you have permission of the copyright holder to use their image!
