Artwork Guidelines

Yes, we have an in-house design team that will be able to help with designing your job. Most people already have text and images available that they want in their job, just supply that to us along with a brief outline of what you require. One of our team will then be in touch to start the design process and explain how it will work for you.

We prefer to print from pdf files, they should have a resolution of 300dpi, with images and colours set as CMYK and fonts embedded. See our Artwork Guidelines section for full details of the type of file we require you to submit. We do offer a full design service if required.


You will find most items are either printed onto Glossy Coated paper which has a shiny and smooth surface or Silk Coated paper which has a flat and less shiny surface. Business stationery is printed on Matt Uncoated paper as this is usually over printed on desktop printers. We try and use FSC Certified and PEFC Certified papers and boards which all come from sustainable well managed sources.

If you’re not sure which paper to use please contact us and we will be happy to give you some advice and send a free paper sample to help you decide. You are always welcome to come in and see use.

We print all our jobs in CMYK (Cyan, yellow, magenta and black) on both our digital and litho presses. We can print Pantone Spot colours, please contact us for a bespoke quotation.

We use offset litho for long run printing, which provides the highest quality of print on most paper and board types. We also have up to date digital presses which print our shorter run jobs, giving a litho like finish.


If you can’t find the quantity or product you want please send us an email and we’ll send you a bespoke quotation as soon as possible.

VAT is included in products where VAT is chargeable on our website. VAT will be charged on most types of printing, however leaflets, booklets and brochures are generally zero rated for VAT. HMRC rules about VAT on leaflets are complex, click here to view the guidelines on the HMRC website, please read points 3.3 and 3.4.

In some circumstances we may need to charge VAT in addition to the website price as VAT may be payable on your particular item, for example a leaflet that has a return section. Prices are always subject to sight of final copy. We will always let you know if VAT is payable and give you the option to cancel your order and get a full refund. If you have any questions about whether VAT should be applicable to your leaflet in particular please contact us.

We have included VAT in products where applicable, some are VAT free depending upon what you’re having printed. The VAT rules for printing are very complex. The VAT breakdown will be shown at the checkout stage, you can cancel your order at that stage by not completing the payment process. Please also read the section above this “Should I pay VAT on my printing?”.

Some artwork that is submitted by you may not be suitable for printing and may require additional work to enable us to print it, see our Art Guideline section. If additional work is required we may need to charge for this, you will be notified of the cost and offered the option of cancellation of your order and a full refund.
