  • Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
  • PostScript (.eps)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) - print quality output
  • JPEG (.jpg,.jpeg) - must be high resolution

Pantone Guide
If you wish to specify Pantone colours and do not have an original Pantone swatch book, you can click here to download a pdf file of Pantone colours. Please note that this is a GUIDE ONLY for discussion with our art team, as the colours will render differently according to various types of computer monitor and grahics card settings.

Specific recommendations:

Fonts must be supplied for all documents as well as those used in supporting imported or placed files. Text to outlines: Where possible all text should be converted to curves, this prevents your type face being replaced with a similar one.

Scanned images should be supplied as separate files, saved in EPS or PDF Resolution: Scanning resolution is relative to the final Image. When a scan is at actual finished size, the scan image resolution (DPI) should be at least 300dpi.

Due to the numerous software packages available for artwork creation, we are unable to support them all. Please export your files to an EPS format or PDF or high resolution JPG

Fire Certificates? - Don't worry, we've got it covered!
Due to recent health & safety laws all venues (indoor and outdoor) require a British Standards fire retardant safety certificate to comply with BSI safety standards.
All of our flags have been laboratory tested and approved by the British Standards Institution. Each completed order will now receive a copy of our fire certificate for issue to venue health and safety officials and thus help ensure compliance. Our flags are made from flame-retardant material and all our printing inks are water-based and solvent free.
