Creating your own Artwork?
Make sure your job looks great when printed by following our checklist:
Download here the product template for Contour Ballpen Print area template
- Create your artwork using the correct dimensions from the product description
- Save in PDF format
- Convert RGB images to CMYK if possible
- Use high resolution images
Supply your artwork as a high resolution PDF with layers intact and fonts embedded. All colours, images and photos, should be in CMYK format if possible, we will convert RGB images to CMYK which might create colour shifts. Scans and images should be 300dpi or above to avoid pixel images.
- If you have A4 size artwork that needs reducing to A5 size or A4 size enlarging to A3 size or similar, we can easily reduce or enlarge your PDF file for you at the printing stage, just let us know in the notes box at the checkout.
Try not to make your colours too light – CMYK colour values should be kept above 10% for each colour value. If you are using big areas of black in your artwork for example, a black background – we recommend setting your black as C 30%, Y 0%, M 0%, K 100% instead of just K 100% to make the black richer.
We can create artwork for you, for pricing choose the “Need Artwork?” option. Please note this takes additional time to the typical production turnaround time. Please email us separately your instructions and include any logos or images that you require and we will create a proof to check before printing.
The typical production turnaround time applies from when we receive your proof approval. Artwork prices quoted are for one design not for multiple designs.
Simple text layout with your logo or picture supplied option is a low cost set up to cover simple wording with the addition of your logo or picture supplied.
