If you are looking for a job that requires graphics to be designed on your behalf rest assured that we can deliver. We have our own dedicated design team who are experts with all the major graphics software and will be able to advise you on the most appropriate layout for your project.
We can also use your own artwork. We prefer all artwork to be sent to us as print-ready PDF files, however we can also accept files provided in the following formats:
- Adobe InDesign (.indd)
- Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
- Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
- High Res JPEG or TIFF (resolution at least 300dpi)
- High Quality Hard Copy
If you are not sure of the best way to save your documents, please contact us and we will be pleased to assist.
When preparing artwork
... in PDF or in any of the above formats, please ensure that there is at least 3mm bleed all round and all images and fonts are embedded within the file (text converted to paths or outlines if possible). PDF files should be 'print-ready'. All images/graphics should be high quality and saved at a resolution of 300dpi. Any low quality images used on artwork will result in a poor reproduction, especially on high run or wide format projects. Images simply copied from search engines (i.e. Bing, Google, etc.) are not likely to be of acceptable quality and, as with any image, it is important that you have the necessary permission to use any images on your project. If not, you could be in breach of Copyright Law. If working with Photoshop or any other 'bitmap' based software, work at 300dpi (or higher), and on the correct canvas size (eg. A5 canvas for an A5 leaflet, etc.) Whilst every effort is made to ensure the best possible service given to you, the customer, the quality of the job output is based only on the artwork provided and we cannot take any responsibility for any printing faults if any. Proofs are provided that must be checked and signed off before printing is commenced
"Since I opened my business in 2010 I have used A1 City Print and find Raymond and his staff to be very helpful and extremely professional. I'm very fussy but they have been very patient with me over the years. I can sit with them and go through the graphics and layout of brochures, appointment cards, posters etc. and see all the technical stuff he can do to make everything look great. I like being able to do this and to get some proofs before it all finally goes to print. I also find their prices to be very fair and the service fast and reliable. I highly recommend A1 City Print".
