Tips, Resources & other helpful stuff

At Office and Image we know how important well designed and produced documents are to your business reputation.

By using some of our handy tips when you design or supply files to us, we will save time and you will save money!

Paper Sizes and Stocks

Stock is a term used to describe the thickness (and weight) of paper and card

Brochures and flyers sometimes are suited to papers of a heavier stock

When buying paper for your own office you should first check the limitations of your copier or printer and whether it will accept heavier paper.

Here are the dimensions of standard paper sizes...

Folded Doccuments

Large Format Printing

Posters, signs, banners and free standing roller banners are examples of large format printing.

These items are designed to stand out when viewed from a distance, so use bold colours and large simple fonts.

Setting up your own artwork...

Bleed - Include a 'bleed' of 3mm – this means that anything going to the edge of the file should extend at least 3m past the edge to allow for trimming and excellent presentation

Colour mode should be CMYK (not RGB) to ensure that the colours are as expected

Photos and /images should be high resolution
- at least 300 dpi

Fonts should be imbedded into publications to ensure that the font is always available.

Supplying artwork...

Files can be supplied in a number of formats, with the most common being; PDF, JPG, PSD, or Publisher and Adobe Illustrator files

If you would like to submit a file in an alternative format, please contact us to check suitability

Files can be supplied to us either on a floppy disk, CD, DVD, USB, flash drive, emailed, or even dropboxed for extra large files.
