Artwork Printing Requirements

For artwork supplied by clients

If you would like to submit your own artwork for printing, please observe the requirements below. Artwork provided in the correct format will be processes much faster than artwork that needs to be manipulated and/or returned for modification. If you have any questions regarding the requirements below, please contact us via our contact page here.

Accepted Media

Zip disk / CD / DVD / floppy disc / email (files to be no larger than 6MB)

Accepted File Formats

PC - Adobe Acrobat 4, 5 & 6 / CorelDraw 12 / Adobe Illustrator 10 / Adobe Photoshop 7

Artwork Files

All images used in layouts should be scanned at no less than 300dpi and MUST be saved in CMYK. All jobs must be supplied with all fonts used OR converted to curves / paths.


All files supplied which require bleed should have no less than 2mm bleed beyond the trim size of your artwork. For example if ordering a 55mm x 90mm business cards, the artwork set-up should be 59mm x 94mm, the extra 2mm on each side will be trimmed off in the printing process. Templates for impositions can be supplied upon request.


If you require "exact colour" matching for your job we suggest that you request a full colour proof with your order, assuming that you are not able to supply existing printed material. If colour matching is not requested we will match the print accurately to colour properties of the supplied artwork file. No job will be printed without a signed proof.

Artwork files which are not set-up to Ultraprints specifications will be rejected or may require alterations attracting an artwork charge of $130/hour (client will be notified if this is required). Material generated on some home or business computers by advertisers using incompatible fonts, graphics, etc. may corrupt material sent to us, creating printing delays, errors and poor reproduction.
