Our Artwork Requirements
Our printing uses CMYK colours (Cyan, Magento, Yellow and Black) we cannot guarantee results if you send us Pantone, or RGB references as we will have to try to match rather than have the precise colour.
We require artwork to be supplied to scale, or scalable. If your artwork is scalable, please tell us the scale you used.
Colours you will see on your own monitor, and/or printer may not be accurate to reality. Monitors are lit, printed matter is not. Monitor setting can be different from computer to computer, as can the settings on inkjet, laser and other forms of printing. We cannot guarantee to provide the colours you see for the above reasons. We will supply industry standard colours.
The colour black, can differ from printer to printer. We advise that you provide Strong Black in your artwork, this is made from the following CMYK configuration. C30 M30 Y30 and K100.
Crop Marks and Bleeds should be included to ensure we have the exact size to cut to and an overlap of print so that when we cut the ink goes to the edge.
All fonts should be supplied to as True Type Fonts, these can be copied from your fonts folder in your control panel, and attached to an email. Otherwise they should be provided as outline or in curves.
Your image resolution is very important. Pictures are made up of pixels (squares of a solid colour), if your resolution is low then the picture will have visible squares, especially if you are asking us to increase the size of what you have supplied. Resolution should be 150-300 pixels to the inch (dpi).
We can accept 10 mb via our email which in terms of artworks is quite small. We have an upload facility on our website at https://bhma.co.uk/pages/customised-pos-signage-display-artwork-requirements where any size can be uploaded.
We prefer artworks to be supplied in .pdf format. However we can work with many others, eps, jpeg or gif for example. We will try to work with you across many file formats to ensure you receive the best outcome.
Once we have received your artworks we will always ‘Proof’ it to you for ‘sign off’ please check for typographical errors as we do not know whether you are intentionally using mis-spellings. Example Krispy Kreme.
We can also produce artwork for you, rather than you providing it. However; there will be a small charge for this service, based on time used and the costs of the purchase of relevant pictures.
