  • Font Embedding (should be set to "embed all fonts")

Colour needs to be set as CMYK not RGB (RGB artwork will be converted to CMYK this could effect your colours).

It is essential that there is a minimum 3mm bleed around your artwork, save your artwork as any of the above formats example (A6 111 X 154.50). This is for cutting purposes. Please note that there is a 2mm tolerance for cutting on all jobs.
