We accept the following file formats: PDF, AI, EPS, PSD, PDF, JPEG, TIFF
Image resolution must be at least 300 DPI.
Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) or Publisher is not acceptable file formats and will require a conversion. See non-compliant art work below.
Maximum on-line ordering file size is 800mb
2. COLOUR MODE
We strive to print colours exactly as they appear in the supplied artwork. To avoid errors in the finished product, we strongly recommend supplying artwork files in CMYK colour mode.
3. IMAGE RESOLUTION
We recommend image resolution be at 3OO DPI or higher.
Images created for websites generally have a resolution of 72 DPI. This is much lower than what is required for good print quality. If the artwork is supplied at a low resolution, the printed image may appear blurred, jagged and rough.
4. FONT OUTLINE
With access to thousands of fonts available on the internet for both Mac and PC, we cannot guarantee that the fonts used in your artwork are available on our system. This applies to AI, EPS, and PSD files only. Your artwork is checked before we print but missing fonts can cause errors in the artwork and delay the printing process.
FOR AI FILES (Illustrator) create outlines for all type
FOR PSD FILES (Photoshop) Rasterise all type
Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of a sheet after trimming. Files that have text, images or colours that run off the trim edge of your final printed piece must be submitted with an extra border all around.
6. TRANSPARENCY, EFFECTS, LINKS ETC
If separate images are included as links, please be sure to embed them in your document.
If you are using effects such as transparencies, shadows, blurs etc., these may appear on your screen but may not be part of the printed image. These effects need to be rasterised to ensure they are included on the final print.
To check the final rasterised image in Adobe Illustrator, open the Flattener Preview window (Window) -> (Flattener Preview)
7. FINAL PROOF
Please ensure your text size is not too small.
Also make sure that the thicknesses of your stroke are at least 0.25 pt or bigger to be visible. Any thin lines or design elements may not appear on your printed products.
Check all spelling, ensure all details are correct and all images meet the above requirements.
8. NON-COMPLIANT ARTWORK
If you still want to proceed with your own artwork that is not print ready, WTF PRINT NZ can convert the file for a fee. Please call us to discuss your print requirements prior to on-line ordering.
WTF PRINT NZ will not be held responsible for any errors relating to your own submitted design.
