Common questions

How can I tell if my artwork is press ready?

Nikki M Group offers an assessment service to ensure your artwork is set up correctly for press. Call us today to book a consultation.

What file formats do you accept?

Press-ready artwork needs to be supplied as an Adobe PDF file. As a general guide, files will need:

  • to be set up as CMYK (or a spot colour if required)
  • to have bleed, trim and registration marks.

We also accept files created using Adobe Creative Suite or QuarkXpress.

We do support some other files types, so if you don’t see yours here, contact us to discuss.

What types of maths projects do you print?

We print all types of projects. We source the right print process for your project. Common projects include:

  • student textbooks
  • teacher companions
  • homework books
  • activity sheets
  • sample books
  • branded materials.

How long does it take to print offshore?

It will depend on the size of your order, but we recommend allowing a minimum of 8 weeks for international printing and shipping. Please call us to confirm.

Can you deliver to a storage warehouse?

We can arrange delivery to a storage facility. You just need to tell us whether a forklift will be available or it will be a hand unload.
