The first stage for any type of printing is to produce a design on the computer. We refer to this as artwork.
Artwork can come from many sources – produced by us, from scanned original pictures or customer supplied. Any artwork that we produce is kept on file should you need it in future.
A typical design starts by taking a brief from you and having an informal chat about what you require. If you have any strong views about the design let us know so we can include them early in the process. It doesn’t matter if all you have is a rough sketch on the back of an envelope – it is our job to turn it into the design you want.
When we have a clear understanding of your needs we will be able to give you an estimate of timescale and costs. Once everything has been agreed we will start to produce the artwork. We will show you a proof at every stage and will only go ahead with the printing once you are happy with the final design.
We are able to scan original photographs or small works of art (provided you hold the copyright) however for larger pieces please contact us for advice.
Although we are happy to accept customer artwork it has to be in a suitable format for a professional printing system, so please contact us as early as possible to check whether your software is able to produce suitable files.
