Artwork and PDF requirements for Folded Flyers & Leaflets

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your Folded Leaflet artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service from £20 plus VAT.
  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished Folded Leaflet, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a "quiet area" to ensure nothing important is too near to the trimmed edge of the Folded Leaflet; so please leave a 5mm inner margin for anything other than backgrounds
  • Supply your Folded Leaflet artwork files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • The image resolution should be 300dpi or more
  • Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes

If you would like to download a PDF template you can do so from the Templates page which is also accessible via the top menu bar.
