Include Bleed and Crop Marks

Generally, bleed should be 1% of image height/width.
If your artwork is supplied without bleed, we may not always be able to add it on your file and you may have to amend and re-supply the artwork.

CMYK not RGB please!

Please ensure that all embedded images are CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black files. Be aware that files converted from RGB to CMYK may alter the colour composition significantly!


Include all fonts you have used in file, or convert to Outlines. Whilst we have an extensive font collection, there is no guarantee the version you have used will match ours. This can create problems with line lengths and spacing of the wording and type.

Line art and Images

Scanned colour and greyscale images should be 300dpi at the final size in the document submitted for output.

Images should be submitted as TIFF’s, JPEG’s or EPS. Line art (bitmapped) should be 600-1200 dpi at the final size in the document submitted for output.

Please include a hard copy of your artwork for reference with any useful instructions.


Pantone colours may be included within your artwork. However, you must notify us if you use any Pantone colours, otherwise they will simply be converted to CYMK. We cannot guarantee accurate replication of all Pantones.

Artwork supplied at less than 300dpi at 25% scale can be printed, although the result may be unsatisfactory.

Customer Supplied Artwork

Please be aware that Fireworks Digital cannot guarantee the final output of customer supplied files. Resolution of images, colours & formatting may be different to your expectations.
