Artwork Checklist – for the designer

– 2mm bleed; 5mm on folders and booklets. A 2mm internal bleed is best for important elements and text.
– Include trim marks (colour bars etc are not necessary)
– 100% scale and 1-up on a single page.
– Please convert your text to curves or outlines.
– Ensure all images are a minimum 300dpi.
– It is really important that all colours are CMYK, pantone colours will be converted automatically and this may not give the desired result.
– Ensure you flatten all transparencies and layers. (save as PDF 1.3 compatible)
– Check for the need of a rich black in large black areas, a good cmyk colour breakdown for rich black is 40-40-40-100. Black text should be 100% k only.
