If you require any assistance for supplying your own files don't hesitate to contact us. Files supplied in RGB/Microsoft Programs will not guarantee colour matching. This is due to the nature of colour conversion, however we aim to match them as close as possible. Please remember that desktop inkjet printers that are present in the home are not accurate at producing colours when compared to commercial printers. If you feel this is of concern please contact us before we print your order.
The easiest and quickest method for supplying artwork is to save it as a PDF.
Microsoft Office Files
Need A Print can accept Office files however we accept no responsibility in any alterations that may occur during the conversion. If Need A Print do the conversion we cannot be held responsible for things moving/dropping. It is best you convert to PDF as below.
We cannot guarantee colours from any Microsoft application. This is due to Microsoft not being a graphic design application and ink values are not exactly matched to what you see on screen. We do however try to match them as best we can.
We require a bleed area and safe margin to allow us to print and cut your printed items. A minimum of 3mm bleed is needed with a 5mm safe area minimum
Correct: File has bleed to outer marks. Red line is where we cut. Background will print to edge. No text is inside the safe area (marked in blue)
Wrong: The file has been setup to the exact finished size. We need a bleed of 3mm minimum on all files. If we print and trim like this it will result in white areas at edge of print.
Wrong: You will see this file has bleed but the text is placed inside the 5mm safe area (marked in blue). There is a chance when we cut (marked by red line) it will cut the text off on some of your printed items.
