Artwork Guide

Many of our products can be personalised during the production process so that they fit your business perfectly. Traditionally, custom messages and pictures would be applied to a product after manufacturing, however, to achieve the perfect product with a higher quality finish, we need to apply your design as the product is being made in our factory. To do this, we need to have agreed on the artwork.

What is artwork?

Artwork is a generic term we use to mean the graphic elements of any design. The design will typically consist of your logo, branding, supporting images and any key messages. The artwork file will be in a specific file format and it’s this file that our printers, cutters and plotters read, hence why it’s important to be correct.

You’ll either have the artwork already, potentially from a prior project or your designers, or you’ll need to use our free design service. Both options will still be quality assured by our print and product teams prior to going into production. Simply tell us your preference from the above options, prior to adding the product to your basket.



Ranging from small messages on mini chalkboards to poster layouts, our customers have ideas that need to be on the products they need. Here is a small selection of design outputs from recent orders. Remember that our design team are here to help.

The design process


Your order will be passed to our design team and they’ll contact you by phone or email to introduce themselves. Working together, you’ll agree on a design (“the proof”) and it’ll be put into production. Generally, we’d expect a few iterations of the design prior to reaching an agreement. The team are likely to ask you about specific messages, fonts, colours and any images that you’d like to see. Rest assured that you’re totally in control throughout the process, meaning the design will only go to production once you have accepted the artwork proof.


Once you’ve placed your order, we’ll need your artwork. The preferred method of sharing is often via email or through a file sharng website. Your designer will be able to assist you with this. Our team will check the technical attributes prior to agreeing on the output with you. This step checks that our machinary printers can produce an optimal graphic for you.

We’ll always ask you to approve the artwork proof prior to production.


Our team will transform your base artwork into specialist formats specific to the media; for example, making a representative design for laser engraving from your source PDF or AI file. We’ve found that the best approach is to send us what you have and we’ll get creating!
