Artwork and PDF requirements for Inkjet Posters

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your Inkjet Poster 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.
  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished Inkjet Poster, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a “quiet area” to ensure nothing important is too near to the trimmed edge of the Inkjet Poster; so please leave an inner margin of between 3mm and 5mm for anything other than backgrounds
  • Supply your Inkjet Poster artwork files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • The image resolution should be 300dpi or more
  • Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes
