What do I need to provide?

All prices for design quoted online are based on you supplying the following: You will need to provide a detailed design brief explaining exactly what you need including any specific design requirements (if any), such as preferred fonts or colours. You will also need to provide all text/copy that you wish to have displayed on your artwork in the form of a word document, e-mail or similar. We will also need your logo (if you have one) and any photographs/images that you wish to have displayed, these must all be supplied in high resolution (minimum of 300dpi), if you have your logo in vector format then this is even better, vector files usually end in .ai or .eps. If you have no ideas as to what you require and need some guidance then don't worry, get in touch and we will see what we can do.

What is 300dpi?

300dpi (300 dots per inch) is the resolution that a design/image has been created or scanned at. When providing photographs and scanned images, please ensure that photographs have been taken at the highest setting possible on a quality digital camera and that scanned images have been scanned at a minimum of 300dpi. Logos, photographs and images taken from your website cannot be used at all as these will only be 72dpi.
