Preparing a Print-ready PDF File

  • Our preferred format for text files is a print ready PDF, saved as one single file set up in page order
  • Please do not save the PDF as double page spreads or save each page as individual PDFs - we will be unable to use files in this way.
  • Please note that we cannot accept Word documents. These must be turned into print ready PDFs before being sent to us.
  • It is very easy to create PDFs using Word. When you are ready to create your PDF then simply go to File - Save As and choose PDF from the drop down list.
