Please use the templates below to submit your artwork. You may use Adobe Indesign’s built in templates. These are usually correct except for the CD/DVD disc template. Please export booklets as 2-page spreads in PDF format with page numbers included (either on artwork or in file name).
For the fastest turnaround please submit artwork directly on our templates with all the information completed including page numbers. Ensure you add bleed on all paper parts (see template keys for details). Do not put text too close to the edge – keep text or other important design elements at least 6mm away from the edge of the print.
Have you added bleed?
No bleed on artwork is the number one mistake that customers make. Please take the time to understand what bleed is and make sure you check our templates carefully to ensure bleed is added.
Please read our artwork instruction document before submitting artwork. If in doubt please consult a professional graphic designer for assistance.
If using GIMP software you will need to make sure you open all documents at 300dpi resolution.
