How much information can I have printed? 

Print areas are subject to the product being printed but would always recommend to ‘keep it simple’! As a rule of thumb, think less-is-more, particularly where the printed message is a call-to-action together with your brand/logo, telephone number and/or web address.

What about artwork approval?

All orders placed will receive a PDF visual confirming branding/design, print position, colour, size and any special instructions prior to production. Should any variation to the signed approval be advised at time of production, you will be advised, and a further proof will be issued.

*jpegs are low resolution files that are unable to be scaled up or down within a print area. Subject to the print method hi-res jpegs may be suitable.
