Handy Hints

A well designed poster is attractive, eye-catching and communicates your message effectively. Keep in mind the following handy design and marketing tips for your next poster!

  • Use large fonts to grab your viewers attention from a distance
  • Use text sparingly
  • Less is more
  • Ensure your poster has one direct message to promote


CMYK Colour Mode

Setup your artwork and graphics in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour mode. This will ensure that you avoid any unexpected colour changes. Please convert any RGB or SPOT images to CMYK before supplying your file.

Default Black

The Right Blacks

Black: C0%, M0%, Y0%, B100%
BACKGROUNDS (larger 30mm area)
Rich Black: C30%, M20%, Y20%, B100%
Rich Blue Black: C40%, M0%, Y0%, B100%
Refrain from using this black in any artwork as it may result in drying and/or scuffing issues.


All files must be supplied at a minimum of 300dpi (dots per inch) at full size. Images such as photos which appear in your artwork must also have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. Images that have a lower resolution may result in a pixilated or fuzzy finish. REMEMBER – images taken from the Internet are only 72dpi and are not suitable for print.

Outline or Embed Fonts

Outline or Embed Fonts

Make sure that all fonts are outlined or embedded within your file. This means that we can print your file even if we don’t have your fonts installed on our computers. This will reduce the possibilities of fonts not displaying as they should and not being printed the way you had proposed.
