Supply of Artwork
The studio staff at Colourfoil are skilled in handling your product from start to finish and can cater for all your artworking requirements to ensure satisfaction. To help us produce the right results for you, the following guide lines should be used when preparing your artworks: -
We recommend using PDF sending artworks digitally as this is the most reliable for accurate sizing and font rendering. We can also take JPEG, TIFF* and EPS. If supplying PDF files we would recommend that these be produced with Libre Office draw or Open Office draw. Adobe acrobat, photoshop or illustrator can also produce suitable files. We do not accept word documents since it cannot be guaranteed that the results will be accurate. If you have a word document then we suggest that you use Libre Office or Open Office to export it as PDF before sending to us.
Digital files for engraving will should be 100% black and white line art. Greyscale, CMYK or RGB may not be suitable. If you have any difficulty with the above, please call us for any advice or assistance.
Always convert text to outline or ensure that fonts are made available when supplying artwork for proofing.
* When saving files in TIFF format, you should use 1200dpi bitmap (1 bit indexed) with LZW compression as this is loss-free and greatly reduces the file size.
