Terms And Conditions
When you are supplying the artwork for us to print please bear in mind the following points. If you are in any doubt at all just ask for guidance either via phone or email.
These should be scanned without reduction or enlargement at between 300 & 400 dpi. Any scaling should be done after they have been scanned. These MUST be saved as CMYK not RGB.
The process of creating full colour work from the four base colours Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black means that almost any colour can be produced. It is however not possible to match a colour exactly.
**Please following instructions below on saving artwork in CMYK. If you send artwork in RGB the colours WILL change.**
Borders and Bleeds
Images and backgrounds, which you wish to reach the edge, must be extended 2mm beyond the page to create a "bleed" that we can cut into. Text and any other images or boxes that are on your document should be at least 5mm inside the document from the edge. Please note if these directions are not followed, we will create a 5mm white border to ensure they can be cut properly.

Although we offer a FREE design service on most items, this is at the discretion of Macs Printing and multi page or complicated print jobs may incur a design charge, you will be informed if this is the case before the job proceeds. ANY job where we have started or amended a design but then does not result in a final order will be charged in proportion to time spent (currently £35 per hour) - please call 0800 840 5547
