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
QuarkXpress, Microsoft Word, Publisher and Excel.
If the above section sounds like a load of mumbo-jumbo you might like to check out our Artwork Guidance page
For larger files we recommend sending your files to us using an online service called WeTransfer - a free platform for transferring large digital files up to 2GB per transfer. No registration necessary.

Please share your files with us using our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Email was designed for sending messages, not files. Quite apart from the danger of emails being missed in increasingly overloaded in-boxes, sending files by email is not secure - thus not complying with the General Data Protection Regulations that came into force in May 2018 when sending personal information.
When you upload files direct to our server they are sent using 128bit encryption, and remain securely encrypted in the cloud.
