Hello, I’m Alec from Fineline Print, and I’m back again to talk to you about sending your Print Ready Artwork to your print provider and which file type is best.
Without a doubt, PDFs are the Number 1 file type preferred by print providers in the UK.
But why? Well …
If you’ve lovingly created a piece of Artwork in Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint or even PagePlus it is tempting to send it to your print provider and ask them to print the document off for you.
But there are several real dangers in this approach.
So, unless you and your print provider are prepared to go back and forth correcting every small formatting error then this approach is a non-starter.
To save yourself a whole load of hassle, I’d recommend a PDF every time. In the next guide: “How to Prepare a PDF for Commercial Print”, we’ll be looking at how to ensure your Print Ready PDF is just that.
But before you go …
I’m on a mission this year to help You make Your Print more Profitable.
