We are offering a basic service which is limited to 20 minutes studio time per customer, this is more than adequate for the majority of orders.

If your artwork requirements are deemed as not suitable for the free artwork service or it becomes apparent during the email proofing stage that the service is not suitable, we will inform you and ask for print ready artwork to be supplied.
