Illustrator & PDF files are the preferred file types, please ensure fonts are outlined and the artwork contains only vector based images and no raster images. We can also accept Eps, Pdf & Single Colour Tiff (with fonts outlined and no raster images). Artwork with multiple colours must be produced as spot colours – CMYK & RGB artworks will be rejected unless agreed in advance by Richard Ching & Son Ltd.

Please include all fonts/images used in the production of your artwork and a hard copy of the artwork, stating package used for our reference. If it is not possible to send fonts then all text should be converted to outlines and images embedded.

Sorry, we cannot print from Microsoft packages such as Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Publisher etc, as these are not valid design packages.

COMPRESSED FILES are not advised

Corrections disclaimer

Whilst we will do our best to identify any problems that are detected on your digital files, the responsibility for accuracy must lay with you, the client. We are unable to accept responsibility for incorrect labels caused by artwork problems that have not been intercepted by us.
