Fix my artwork

Making your file print-ready

Learn More

You already have an artwork file, but you require help in making changes to it.

You've created your artwork, uploaded it to the ProPrintShop but it doesn't meet our Factsheet specification, and you've been told it's not something that can be easily fixed in the factory.

You can either try to put it right yourself, or our Studio Department can do it for you.

We charge £5 plus VAT (£6) for each page that needs correcting.

Our Studio operates independently from the Factory with it's own production and planning, so this is why it is a separate payment away from the PPS.

Once you have paid, you will be taken to the Artwork Upload page.

Amend my artwork

Changes to an existing file

Learn More

You already have an artwork file, but you require help in making changes to it.

Our Studio will look into how the file was created originally and make the required changes for you. This does not automatically make your file(s) print-ready. If this is something you require, please let us know at the time of placing your amendment order.

We charge £18 plus VAT (£24) per page for amendments commissioned.

Once you have paid, you will be taken to the Artwork Upload page where you can send us your file.

Business cards

Simple changes to your template

Learn More

When we already have the existing artwork for a business card, and you need to change the name and contact details for a new person.

We have a small charge of £5 (plus VAT) (£6) for each new card design.

Would you like to do this yourself and save money?
We could create an editable online template for you using our Web-to-print service. Simply login, change the details for a new or existing person, proofread it yourself (or send to someone else), then place the order, or re-order an existing layout.

Let us know if you would like us to create an online catalogue for you.

Shutterstock

Royalty-free images, movies and music

Learn More

Browse millions of royalty-free images and never worry about repeat usage fees or restrictions.

There are a number of stock libraries around, but our vendor of choice is Shutterstock. They have a huge selection and it's competitively priced - we use them ourselves!

With millions of royalty-free images in their catalogue, and more added every day, you're sure to find the perfect image or graphic for your next project.

Their entire collection of images is royalty-free, meaning you can use them in just about every application possible without paying a royalty fee for each time you use the image. Use it on a business card, a leaflet, a banner, vehicle wrap - it's all covered.

For smaller projects/budgets, a pack of 5 licences works out to just under £6 each (at the time of uploading this webpage) and you have a whole year to use them.

Just a little word of advice - always download the largest image or best quality file. It might take up a little more space on your computer, but it's always better to reduce the quality/size of a file than trying to enlarge it at a later date!

You can enter a search word in this window to see if they have something suitable for you.

Fonts

Choose the right font to set the tone

Learn More

Fonts matter.

There are a number of font libraries/foundries around, some offering free fonts, paid-for fonts, and even bespoke fonts created just for you.

Fonts are used for both print and the internet, but the file format changes. This means you may have to pay for a print version of a font, and then pay again for the website/app version, if you want to maintain consistence across all of your marketing.

For this reason, we are starting to use Google Fonts a lot more. The fonts are free, available for print and internet use, and are simple to incorporate into website design.

Both of our sample fonts here are from Google.

How should I set up my artwork for your printing presses?


We use different equipment and process for the different products. When viewing the product you require, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the view factsheet button. This will point you in the right direction.

Uploading artwork to PPS at a later stage


When making your order on the PPS, you have the option to upload the artwork at a later date, should you or we need to adjust it. You can log into your account by clicking here (Administration > Data upload), and select your order from the list (if you have more than one current order). Choose your file, upload, and check the online proof.

Upload the artwork by 10am to avoid a production delay.

We have built a comprehensive A-Z glossary into the PPS. You can visit it by clicking here.
