Artwork Specifications

Please Use This As A Guide When You Upload Your Files This will Make The Print Job Easier For You


If graphics are intended to extend to the edge of a page then all artwork should be supplied with 3mm OR 2mm of “bleed” on all edges, i.e any document should be 6mm taller and wider than the finished product. This is so we can print the document slightly larger and then trim back to the intended size and leave no white edges & a professional finish.

We  recommend that your content uploaded to for print fulfillment is:

A minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%). Content that does not meet this standard may experience print or images that are fuzzy, pixilated or otherwise distorted for which UK Biz printing does not accept any responsibility. We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet this standard, but we do not assume any obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion.

Designed in CMYK and uploaded  in CMYK with no embedded color profile. You may upload in RGB or some other standard if you choose, however, the color will be converted and we will not be responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion.


When supplying artwork with bleed, make sure that anything that is not meant to extend to the full 

perimeter of the page such as paragraphs of text or logos are no closer than 12mm from the edge.



Save your documents in their native format (.doc (MS Word) .psd (Photoshop)  

available in the “Save As” options, most programs have an “Export” option as well.


If you are ever asked about colour options, always use CMYK rather than RGB.

Your document. If possible, try to use system fonts that are installed on most machines (Arial, Helvetica,

Myriad etc) but other typefaces that are specific to your branding etc will need to be included. The best

way to do this is; go to your control panel, access the “fonts” folder and locate the fonts that are within

your document, copy and paste them into a new folder and attach them to the email with the artwork.
