The easiest way to supply artwork online...
We have developed the most amazing software to make online print ordering SIMPLE.
All of our competitors still ask you to supply your file(s) 'print ready' - as we have for the past 30 years
- until NOW.
When ordering from Cheapestprintonline.co.uk, you don't need to be a qualified graphic designer and understand all the 'print ready' jargon - with our new FILE PREVIEW SOFTWARE you can create you own design on your own computer and simply upload almost ANY FILE TYPE to our website and proof it there and then on screen so you see exactly what you will get.
You can resize, rotate or crop your image on-screen until you're happy. Our software will also convert all your colours to a printable format (CMYK) - the conversion between CMYK and RGB will change the colours slightly.
: Make sure your text is inside our 'safe area' otherwise it may get cut off.
2 : If your design has a background image or colour, make sure you have full 'bleed', otherwise your print may have ugly white slithers.
3 : Make sure your design is the same size as your order and the size you choose to upload at the end. If it doesn't fit, drag the corners in our editor to resize it.
Don't use borders to the edge of your design and you keep all your important details inside our 3mm 'safe area' (If you use a border, you may end up with lopsided print - so avoid them where possible.
5 : If your design looks blocky on screen, this is how it will print - you need to get a higher resolution version of your artwork. If in doubt, try zooming in on your design and see if it still looks clear.
6 : If you use our downloadable templates (found below), make sure your photos/ images go right to and past the edge of the page - into the 'bleed' area, to avoid unsightly slithers when cut. Also, we know it is obvious, but REMEMBER to delete the template before you send the file - if it's on your design, it will be printed!
7 : If you are supplying solid blacks, please use a black make up with a 'shiner' of Cyan = 60%, Magenta = 60%, Yellow = 0% and Black =100%. Also note that any tint less than 5% may not show up on the print.
8: If you are using Yellow in your artwork, please check your proof carefully after your upload as the conversion can result in a 'green tint' to your yellow. If this is visible, do NOT approve your proof to print.
Please be aware that only by following the hints above, can we guarantee the quality of your print. If we receive a low resolution file, it can only print low resolution. If in any doubt, please send your file(s) across to us for our FREE file checking service for peace of mind.
