A few great hints to keep costs low

  • Send a PDF
  • Ensure your files are cmyk, black/white or your specified spot colours
  • If the background/image runs over the edge (bleed) include an extra 3mm over all affected sides of the page - keeping the content in the same position
  • Keep the resolution over 300 dots per inch (dpi) at 100% size, preferably 600dpi where text is involved
  • Embed all photos or ensure they are enclosed with the artwork
  • Keep multiple page documents as single pages within one PDF and in the right order i.e. cover (1), page 2, page 3, back (4)
  • Choose high quality/commercial press when exporting in Microsoft Publisher
  • Embed all fonts or ensure they are either enclosed with the artwork or converted to outlines/curves
  • Supply on cd, usb stick, email (up to 8mb) or for larger files use Drop Box (see below)

Dropbox

Email: web@quickprint.co.uk

  • Visit the Dropbox web site at www.dropbox.com*
  • Install the software and create an account
  • Upload your artwork:
     ... if online use the icon which  looks like a page with blue upwards arrow, select your desired file and click upload
     ... if working within the software drag & drop or copy & paste your artwork into the folder
  • Once uploaded right-click (or control-click) over this file, choose ‘Share Link'. At this point either a pop-up will appear
        containing a web link or the link will be automatically copied to the 'clipboard'
  • To share this file with QuickPrint, paste this link into an email addressed to web@quickprint.co.uk along with your
        order reference and contact information.
