Artwork Guidelines

Digital Media

We accept files on CD, DVD or electronically via our FTP. Please contact the Repro Studio for details.


When sending your artwork please supply all Screen, Printer and Truetype fonts in a folder with the artwork. Please convert text to paths, curves or outlines wherever possible.

Pantone Colours

Please check that all Pantone™ and process colours are separated correctly (as applicable). When using Pantone™ colours in a print job, make sure they are set to ‘PROCESS’ or ‘CMYK’ within the program you are using, unless they are set to run as a ‘Special Colour’.

Scans & Images

All scans and images included in your artwork file should be supplied at a minimum of 300dpi in the correct colour mode. For example, 4 colour process images should be supplied as CMYK not RGB.
Please supply all these imported files (TIFF, EPS, JPEG) with the original document within a clearly marked folder eg. Images or Pictures within the main artwork folder.


Please allow at least 3mm bleed (where required) on all artwork, particularly if supplying print quality PDF files. Please also include crop or trim marks with this type of file.

Microsoft Applications

If you are supplying artwork in a Microsoft application such as ‘Word’, please ensure that all text in black is set to ‘Black’ and not ‘Automatic’. This only applies if the job is for litho print.

We have a downloadable set of artwork guidelines available here.

Covid-19 Update

During these uncertain times, we want to reassure all our clients that production remains unaffected, and we continue to print and fulfil all current and new orders to the high-quality standards you all know and love.

Internally safeguards have been put in place at Lemon Press including following procedures and guidance supplied by the BPIF (British Printing Industries Federation).

Sales and estimating continue as normal but to minimise risks, we have reduced the teams' attendance at our premises. Therefore staff that can complete their tasks remotely are set up to work from home.
