Artwork Guidelines

To aid you in the production of your graphic panels, please follow Compact’s artwork guidelines below.

General Notes

  • All artwork preferably supplied as a hi-res print ready PDF.
  • Artwork is usually created at quarter size, however, scaling must be accurate due to the magnification of the documents.
  • We use graphics that are tiled or segmented vertically and output as a number of prints, depending on width required.
  • Create the overall design as one scaled document, indicate check marks for each panel to indicate the crop area, allowing a minimum 1cm bleed on outside edges at finished size.
  • Always provide black and white or colour laser proofs of artwork files, marked up with any special instructions , please include a PDF.
  • Files can be accepted on CD or DVD’s.
  • Specify colours as either pantone or CMYK. Supply a hard copy reference of critical colours and we will endeavour to match it accurately.
  • Note: The conversion to CMYK print process will change the tonal qualities of colours or images, as will gloss or matt laminate.
  • Allow time for proofing to avoid problems.
  • Save images in CMYK.
  • List and supply ALL screen and printer fonts with your artwork, alternatively, supply text as Vector outlines. We have an extensive font library, but may not have the one you have specified.
  • Include any TIFF’s, PICT’s or EPS files included in the artwork document.
  • Mini plots from your composite files can be supplied for approval, make sure you allow enough time to make amendments prior to printing the finished job.

Note: Any amendments or corrections due to the files not being formatted correctly, will incur extra charges. If you are unsure, please phone before we proceed with your order.
