Printing For the Artist
firstname.lastname@example.org / 09 950 2836
We can print up to 1.1m wide and from 12m long dependent on paper stock however finishing restrictions and increased turnaround will apply for any job that exceeds A0 size. We are happy to provide you with one free test strip per job but any additional will be charged at the m2 rate at our discretion.
File Setup for Printing
Files should be supplied either via USB Memory stick or a file sharing programme such as Dropbox or
- Raster image files should be in an RGB colour space - Adobe1998RGB or sRGB are preferred.
- Images MUST be sized to 100% of the print size at minimum 300dpi.
- Ideally we like to print from 16-Bit TIFF files, flattened and saved with no compression.
- However 8-bit and flattened PSDs are accepted. PSDs must have no layers, paths, or no alpha channels.
NB: JPEGs are not ideal for print and we will not take responsibility for reduction in quality due to
compression of files in JPEG format.
Vector files in either RGB or CMYK colour space are also accepted as PDFs - please no .ai or .id files.
We operate on a three day turnaround time.
If we can print your images faster than this we will, however this should never been taken as standard.
The Print Room reserves the right to increase the turnaround time to five days if we feel that the job is
too large to complete in the standard three day turnaround.
The Small Print
The Print Room will never alter a client’s file.
We are happy to advise you on your images and assist you in proofing your files, only if explicitly asked to.
Otherwise files are accepted as ready to print.
Any consultation with clients about files (sizing, resolution, colour etc.) are to be completed before the 3
day turnaround print completion time. This includes any proof strips/prints required.
The Print Room uses a professionally calibrated colour management system. This is to ensure that the
output is as accurate as possible in relation to the screen. Each paper stock is individually calibrated so
that the printer profiles, which describe how an output device handles colours, match as close as possible
the data contained in the file. The monitor we use for pre-print preparation is also calibrated so that the
monitor profile displays the image as close as possible to the data contained in the file.
The Print Room will not accept responsibility for differences in colour between a client’s un-calibrated
screen and the printed output. If a client is unsure whether their screen is displaying an accurate
representation of the colour data contained in the file, we are more than happy to look at their images
with them on our calibrated monitor.
We will not accept any responsibility for a print after is has been accepted from the Print Room. A print
will be deemed to have been accepted unless the Print Room is notified otherwise within 24 hours of
delivery or collection. Any issues with the print after it has been accepted from the Print Room therein
becomes the responsibility of the client.
