Print Ready Artwork Specifications

Print Ready SpecificationsImage Direct only considers artwork to be print-ready if it meets the following requirements, and no further adjustments are required in-house. To avoid additional costs to your printing (incurred when our designers are required to make final amendments before printing), please ensure that if you are providing us with print-ready artwork, you have checked through the requirements below and your material is, in fact, ready for print.
If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re artwork is print-ready, or you require a further explanation, please call our studio on 1800 774 119 or Contact Us.


Files

We require PDF files created to print ready specifications. Colour images should be down-sampled to 300DPI. The PDF colour space should be four-colour CMYK, unless Spot colours are required. Bleed and trim marks should be included. Files provided in any other format will require our designers to make changes and will incur a minimum fee of $60+GST.

Fonts

Please ensure that all fonts are embedded in the PDF document or make sure you convert fonts to outlines to prevent any issues with fonts.

Images

If there are any images within in the document, they must be saved as CMYK and no less than 300dpi, preferably in PSD, TIF or EPS to ensure quality.

Colours

Please specify if the job is to be printed in CMYK with/or spot colour etc. All spot colours need to be clearly specified. Pantone (PMS) colours preferred.

Bleed, Trim Marks & Fold Lines

If your document has colour or images placed off the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed is required. Trim marks (use solid lines) are to be included so the document can be trimmed to the desired size. If you require folding, please indicate by inserting fold lines (use dotted lines). Trim marks and fold lines are to be set outside the print area.

Fonts

Please ensure that all fonts are embedded in the PDF document or make sure you convert all fonts to outlines to prevent any font related error’s.

Images & Logos

If there are any images and/or logos within the document, they must be saved as RGB or CMYK and no less than 300dpi, preferably in a TIF or EPS format to ensure quality.

Colours

Please specify if the job is to be printed in either RGB or CMYK. As our large format printer uses a 6 colour inkjet process, it can produce a higher colour range than that of your everyday CMYK printer, making your finished piece look exceptional.

Bleed & Keyline

If your document has colour or images placed off the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed is required. The Keyline is like a trim guide which is to be the exact finished size (840x2100mm). This is to be placed around the artwork using a 0.5 pt Black, Grey or White box depending on the background colour.
