Artwork Requirements

Once you have completed your purchase, you will be able to upload your print-ready artwork.

When upload is complete, you will not be able to make any changes to the artwork or your order.

It is entirely your responsibility to ensure that the artwork you send over to be printed is correct to the specifications outlined below. Should any defects, variations or errors occur in the print, cutting, quality or colour because your artwork did not meet the advised specifications, we cannot be held liable.

It is also your responsibility to check all content, including imagery, design elements and text for omissions, errors and rights to use/copyright before you upload your artwork.

Artwork Specifications:

  • File Format: PDF or JPG

Need Artwork Designing?

Our experienced graphic designers can provide you with a high quality design-for-print service at a very competitive price; simply make your product selection, and add the basic artwork fee* option for that product before checking out.

You can upload any required design elements, such as your high resolution logo, at the artwork upload stage, and send us a design brief via the Contact Us page; alternatively, you can email us at artwork@printloft.co.uk.

*Artwork design fees are dependent on the product you order and the content and work involved; sometimes it may be necessary to charge more than the basic artwork fee. Prices include a limited number of amendments (1 set of changes and re-proof) – additional amendments may incur extra charges. Payment is required upfront.

* “Bleed” – The background of your artwork (including any images that you wish to run to the edge of the finished format) should be extended by 3mm on all sides of your document, beyond your actual finished product size. The bleed area will be cut into when trimming your product down to size, and is an area of allowance to accommodate possible printer ‘bounce’ during the printing process. Failure to include the accurate bleed on your document will result in possible white edges, or areas of your design that are at risk of being cut off or sitting too close to the edges.

** “Margins” - All text/logos should sit on the document with an allowed clear margin of at least 3mm on all sides, based on the measurements of the final trimmed product size. Any text/logos that fall closer than 3mm to a document edge (excluding bleed) will be ‘at risk’ during the cutting process and we cannot be held liable should the cutting affect this area.
