Professional Design

When clients think of printers, they often don't associate them with Graphic Design.

At Centre State Printing we offer a professional design service and work with our customers to achieve the desired result to properly convey your company image.

Supplying your own artwork? 

Here's some tips when providing artwork for print - 
  • Always keep any text and/or important information 5mm from the edge of your artwork.
  • Always include minimum 3mm bleed on your files.
  • Check that your offset artwork is the correct colour space: (CMYK, spot colours, one colour black text, etc)
  • Please save your PDF file with trim/fold marks. If you are using Acrobat Distiller please be sure to save files on a high setting (High Quality Print, Press Quality).
  • If possible, supply us with a proof so that we can check it against the file that we receive to ensure that nothing has changed between your computer and ours.
  • Images should have a resolution of 300dpi if possible.
  • Text in Illustrator files should be converted to outlines before exporting.
  • Always embed fonts when creating a PDF.
  • Please supply files as single, subsequent pages only - (please do not set up your document with facing pages/spreads).
  • Files can be supplied via email, or uploading via our website, CD, USB or our FTP - please contact us for ftp address and login details.
Feel free to contact us with any queries regarding your art setup and we will be happy to help.
