File Formats

We require all artwork to be sent in an editable Adobe Illustrator format (Ai, EPS, PDF etc.) although our artwork department will look at any files you wish to submit.

 

Fonts

All fonts need to be converted to outlines and any images included as part of the artwork need to be embedded within the artwork. Our sales team will be happy to advise if you have any queries.

 

Colour Requirements

If colour matching is required a sample of the colour to match to will be needed otherwise the job colours will be determined by the artwork you send us. Please note that colours take on a very different hue when back illuminated. Where we are producing lenses on transparent material, in clear acrylic, we will colour match to the illuminated version. In this case, if you wish us to match for a non illuminated version then please bring this to our attention.

 

Proofs

We will always send PDF proofs via email prior to commencement of the job. Please allow time within your schedule for the proofing process.
