Commision our designers to prepare your artwork

If you don’t have the capability or time to create your artwork this isn’t a problem and we are very happy to help. In most cases customers are able to supply some logos, copy and images. Providing these are of printable quality this is often a relatively simple task of ‘setting’ artwork in a presentable way, perhaps on a display stand or banner for example.

Our design charges start at £18.00 + VAT. We will prepare a quote for you approval prior to producing your artwork.

Vector files like illustrator / corerdraw / freehand are best.
We work on both PC's and MAC's and can take both files.
If your banner has a colour right to the edge please allow this colour
to bleed over the edges by 10mm.

Contour cut vinyl graphics


If we have a vector line of the cutting shape included in the file preferably on a new layer. Our vinyl plotter can cut out your vinyl stickers this is known as contour cutting. Please consider the following when preparing artwork.

You must do the vector outline in programme like illustrator / corerdraw / freehand
For image files, import it into one of the above programmes and draw a contour line
Lines must not contain lots of nodes - so do use magic wands to make complex paths
We do not guarantee 100% accurate cuts so ensure you leave at least a 3mm bleed
