Did you know that The Design Mechanics provide trade printing to many other companies in the creative industry? If you can provide print-ready PDFs you can buy printing from us direct at our reprint prices listed on this website.
Because of our digital printing service we can provide high-quality, quick-turnaround printing at amazing prices. If you are providing your own artwork we always suggest you order a printed proof for £5 plus VAT.
- We require your artwork exported to the following guidelines:
- Files must be supplied in Adobe PDF format.
- All files must have at least 3mm bleed and crop marks.
- All fonts should either be embedded or converted to outlines within the design package.
- All colours (including spot colours, unless we are printing as a litho non-CMYK job) should be converted to CMYK.
- All graphics should be at least 300dpi to ensure high-quality printing.
- For best results please ensure any text is at least 5mm from the edge of the item.
