This page gives you some guidelines about what’s required when it comes to your artwork.
We offer printing options to suit your needs, from local printing here in Switzerland, to in-house printing with our partner Freest in India using G.O.T.S certified inks.
Here are some key points to remember when you are designing your artwork:
Adobe Illustrator (.ai), Encapsulated PostScript (.eps), Portable Document Format (.pdf). All fonts must be outlined
Please ensure all text and fonts are converted to outlines, It means that the letters are converted to shapes. When a text is outlined, the text or font cannot be changed accidentally.
In the final print, lines should be clearly defined (i.e. at least 1mm in width).
We can print a maximum of 6 colours in any one location, or 8 colours over the entire item (for example, 4 colours on the front, and four colours on the back = 8). We will do our best to match the colours that you submit in your artwork file, but colours might be slightly different then they appear on screen. If you want to be sure, select your colours from the PANTONE Color Book and provide us the code number.

Word (.doc), PowerPoint (.ppt), Excel (.xls), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Graphics Interchange Format (.gif), Ping (.png), Bitmap (.bmp) files are NOT accepted.
