At Lichfield Printers we don’t like to say no to a challenge.
So whatever format your artwork is in, we will print it.

These include the following:

  • Adobe Acrobat (Mac & PC)
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Indesign
  • Quark Express
  • Coral Draw
  • Macromedia Freehand
  • Microsoft Publisher
  • Microsoft Word

Preparing your files

  • Add crop marks on all four corners
  • Please provide us with the fonts or convert the text into outlines
  • Images should be at least 300dpi resolution to guarantee the best printing quality. Save your images as CMYK
  • Layers should be flattened before sending
  • Save the files as ‘High Quality Print’ or ‘Press Quality Pdf’s
  • Any Perforation, folds or cutter lines need to be spot colours and set to overprint in the attributes menu.

Layout and Bleeds
Please supply your artwork in a “one up” file, we’ll do the imposition for you. Images, background colours and fills which are intended to print to the trimmed edge of the paper should be extended 3mm beyond the page to give a “bleed” to the document. This will make the page 6mm taller and 6mm wider.
