How should I save my files for printing?
A print is only as good as the capture it has been printed from, with this in mind please ensure high resolution files are supplied, if you are unsure if the output quality will be good enough or you need any assistance, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help! To ensure the best possible prints, please upload files with the following specifications:
Formats: We accept Photoshop (PSD), JPEG and TIFF files for printing.
Colour Space: All files must be RGB (no CMYK) and we recommend using Adobe RGB (1998).

Do you add borders?
We add an approximately 40mm handling border to all finished prints. This allows for safe handling and easy framing of your prints. Also allowing for space to sign, limited and number an edition. Please specify if you require further borders for signing on the bottom edge. If you require a larger area it will be added and charged for.
