Artwork Check-list

We request all our artwork to be supplied as high resolution (300dpi) PDF files. It is important that you prepare your PDF file in the correct way. Please ensure all the following checks are made:

  • Is your PDF file the correct size?
  • Have you added 3mm bleed on all edges and are all text/logos at least 3mm away from the final trimmed edge?
  • Is your PDF file supplied as single pages in the correct order? Please do NOT supply PDF files as spreads or attempt to impose them yourself.
  • Are all fonts embedded / converted to outlines?
  • Are all the images CMYK (not RGB) and at least 300dpi?
  • Are all images embedded?
  • Have you flattened all layers and transparencies?
  • Does your job fold correctly? Please check that the panels are correct.

Please make sure you have completed all the points in the checklist above. If your artwork does not meet all the points raised above, you may find errors in your final print that GTEC Print Group cannot be held responsible for (such as font substitution or layer/transparency issues).

We cannot use the following formats for printing: Microsoft Word, Excel, Publisher, Powerpoint or any file that is NOT a PDF, JPEG or TIFF. We will be happy to convert your document to a press-ready pdf file. Conversion charges start from £35.99 plus VAT.


We will supply you with a low resolution digital proof in pdf format. We require proof approval via email. Please note that digitally printed jobs will not be proofed unless specifically requested.
