What to supply

These guidelines have been set out to assist you and to ensure design and preparation procedures for your calendars are followed correctly.

We require the relevant information and artwork or graphics that must appear on the branding area. This would include logos, slogans, images, type faces, fonts and contact details. Our design studio will layout the artwork supplied in the branding area allocated on the calendars of choice.

Artwork must be supplied in an electronic format sent via email or compact disc. Vector based artwork is preferred and is most suitable to use.  Artwork created in Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point is not acceptable due to low quality resolution and incorrect colour formats. Please ensure all fonts are converted to curves / paths when supplying print ready artwork. For full colour overprints, should you not have a vector format file, a raster file with a minimum resolution of 300dpi at an A5 physical size can be used. (Internet images at 72dpi are not acceptable for litho print) A CMYK colour breakdown or a Pantone reference number as well as a colour sample must be supplied to ensure corporate identities are accurately matched.

Please note that printing on different types of paper result in different hues on the final product. Inks tend to be very absorbent on uncoated paper, resulting in a dark finish when set where as very little or no absorbtion takes place on coated paper resulting in a light or brighter finish when set. We go to great lengths to ensure accurate colour matching to supplied samples.

Accuracy of the artwork is essential. A proof will be faxed or emailed for final approval before printing will commence - this will enable the customer to check the artwork thoroughly and correct any mistakes before hand. For special, custom calendars, full size colour printed proofs are made for client approval. We cannot be held liable for any incorrect information once a proof has been approved and signed off.
