You can email artworks directly to the studio, however due the the unpredicatable way emails can behave, if you have a large attachment we reccomend using a file delivery solution such as WeTransfer, Mailbigfile, Hightail, DropBox etc.


Below is a selection of useful points to consider when preparing an artwork for DCL. It is impossible for us to foresee every possible problem you may encounter, so if you have a query not answered below, please for further assistance.


Bleed is the term printers use for an area of page content that extends beyond the trim size of the page. Bleed is important, as due to tollerances in the finishing of printed material it is possible (if a job does not have bleed) to leave a thin slither of plain white paper at the edge of the finished pages. Ideally we require 3mm of bleed on all artworks supplied to DCL, it is also important to offset any page marks by 3mm so that they do not fall within the bleed area.

Page Sizes - Continuous

Unlike sheet fed page sizes, the depth of continuous forms are set in inches.

Images & Colour

All images should be supplied at a resolution of 300dpi and in the CMYK colour mode.
When using large areas of solid black, using a colour breakdown of 100% black, 40% cyan, 30% magenta, and 20% yellow will produce a stronger, and more consistant black.
