When using our on-line facilities or email, it is often advisable to compress your files first. We support StuffIt, HQX, ZIP and WinRAR compression. We also support a wide range of removable media: CD, DVD, USB drives, ZIP Disks and Diskettes.

Adobe Acrobat or PDF is your best bet for easily and accurately turning your designs into print. We use PDF files for our internal workflow and will shortly be putting up tutorials on how best to prepare your PDF files for digital and offset printing.


We are also able to accept hardcopies of your artwork. We use high resolution scanners to convert your paper or film media into electronic formats. In circumstances where ther hardcopy might not be of sufficient quality to act as a master, we can replicate the design on the computer from scratch.

If your needs are still not catered for, please contact us and let us work out a way to meet your requirements.
