Supply of Artwork (non Giclée Print products)
 

Images can be supplied by email or directly to us via We Transfer in Jpeg or Tiff format and ideally have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. If you are unable to supply digital images, we can scan supplied original artwork.
Please note: Colour matching to original artwork cannot be guaranteed in cases where original artwork is not supplied for scanning.
Cropping of images is often required for the production of folded cards, postcards, notelets, keyrings and fridge magnets in order for the image to match the product dimensions. If cropping of images is not possible or desirable, limited image stretching can be used, or additional border width added.

A one-off set up charge of £ 7.50 applies per image for each product size/type, to enable the layout creation of your product and colour adjustment as required. Once the initial set up is complete, a template is saved securely to enable prompt creation of future products and re-orders which are charged at the unit rates shown above.

A fee may apply if future updates or adjustments are required.

Colour adjustment is included in the set-up fees for non-Giclée products.
 

Please refer to the following digital image supply notes to enable us to achieve the best possible results for you:
Resolution:

Image resolution is expressed as ‘dpi’ (dots per inch) for print or ‘ppi’ (pixels per inch) for screen images and refers to the number of dots on paper, or pixels on screen, used per inch to display an image. Unfortunately, whilst images look great on screen when displayed at 72ppi, this resolution is not high enough to obtain fine, crisp detail for print where a resolution of at least 300dpi is required.

Most digital and phone cameras capture and save images at 72ppi by default as they are primarily designed for viewing on a screen and this causes issues if you require such images to be printed. If your device has the ability to adjust it’s capture resolution, it should be set to 300dpi when you intend to print images.
File Type:

Another issue when printing from digital and phone camera images is the saved image file type which tends to be ‘jpeg’. A jpeg image file is a compressed file which is again designed for web and screen applications. The image is compressed, or made smaller, by the removal of important colour data and detail, whilst this does not alter screen appearance it is required for print. Files for print should ideally be ‘tiff’ files which are considerably larger in size. Remember, an image’s ‘file size’ does not refer to the image dimensions but to the amount of data that is contained within the file.
Supply:

When supplying image files, try to avoid using email or messenger services as images are often compressed when transmitted. You can upload images from your device via https://richardcoloveseyfineartandprint.wetransfer
