Artwork and PDF requirements for Overprinted Envelopes

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your Overprinted Envelope artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service of £20 plus VAT.
  • The overprinted image cannot bleed and we need a large “safe area”. Please ask for a template.
  • Supply your Overprinted Envelope artwork files to us in CMYK, not RGB please if they are being printed in full colour.
  • The image resolution should be 300dpi or more.
  • Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes.
