At Catton Print we are able to accept artwork in many different formats created on either PC or Mac.
Our preferred file format is PDF provided with a 3mm bleed and separated if necessary into spot colours or as CMYK if full process colour is required.
Other formats such as TIFF or JPEG should be saved as CMYK documents wherever possible and with bleed considered - no text too close to the edge please. We also take original files from the following programs:
Adobe Creative Suite - InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator
Microsoft Word, Publisher and Excel.
