PSD Photoshop Document (CS3 or lower)
Document created by Adobe Photoshop. Must be converted to CMYK Process. DPI (Dots per inch) must be at 80dpi at 1:1 and 800dpi at 1:10.
Scaling and Resolution
For easy handling, files are best scaled at 1:10. Rasterized files should be at least 100dpi at the full output size of the print, ie if the file being printed at 1200mm X 1200mm, it has to be at least 100 dpi at that size. Scaled to 10% of final size will produce a 120mm x 120mm file, with a resolution of 1000dpi.
Fonts
When saving the file all fonts should be saved as outlines as this will avoid the need to supply the font which could end up being incompatible or corrupt and delay the output. This will also maintain the integrity of the design e.g. kerning or special effects applied to the font.
Linked Files / Images
All linked files should be supplied with the final art so if there is a problem with the file we can re-link or embed the image required. All linked images must be converted to CMYK Process. DPI (Dots per inch) must be at 80dpi at 1:1 and 800dpi at 1:10. High resolution TIFF and JPEG only accepted.

Corporate ID – Logos
Please supply logos in vector format i.e. EPS or AI If rasterized (converted to pixels) please supply in a PSD layered file or at high resolution JPEG of TIFF
Colour Reproduction
PMS or CMYK colours must be specified with the supplied artwork. A colour correct proof is required for all jobs that require a specific colour match. Please note: not all PMS colours can be reproduced using CMYK inks, what might look correct on screen will more than likely not be represented at the printer. Were an exact duplicate is not available a closest possible match will be used.
