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.
