.cdr - Corel Draw
.pdf - Acrobat Pdf (only if created in vector, most are created in raster)

File Size:

Provided artwork must be under 10mb in size.

Files under 10mb can be emailed to us.

For files larger than 10mb, please supply artwork on a USB or Upload via

Fonts or Type Faces:

Please make sure all fonts used in artwork are converted to outlines or curves to ensure accuracy. Alternatively, you can send us a copy of the font file.


Please advise of specific PMS or CMYK colours on your design; percentage of PMS colours and half tones should be avoided.

We will endeavour to match your colours correctly, however, not all printing process can match this exactly.

Every colour output mechanism whether its Vinyl, Digital or Paint produces a colour variance and be aware that each material and substrate will render the colour differently.
