Need print ready artwork?

If you don't have print ready artwork though have your idea ready to go, get in touch with one of our designers to find out how you can make it print ready.

This page explains the options and processes available to customers who do not have print-ready artwork on hand

If you already have a design ready, or plan to create a design yourself, please instead review the "Print-Ready" requirements listed on our Artwork Specifications page.
If print-ready artwork cannot be supplied, please read below:
The Mabuzi team offer several options to assist in the creation (or recreation) of suitable artwork. To ensure the best possible print result can be achieved for all jobs, the artwork provided needs to be supplied "print-ready", according to our strict Artwork Specifications. Whilst graphic designers & artisans are often savvy with the programs required to make artwork to these specifications, most of our customers are not professionally trained in these programs and can, as a result, experience some difficulty in obtaining or creating these files. For those customers who have had their logo or design professionally created by a graphic artist or designer, they will often find the files supplied to them by their designer will meet the requirements we need. For all others, we recommend using our in-house Mabuzi design services to create or recreate your artwork for print, as per the process explained below.  
The following diagram illustrates the options and processes available to get your design or artwork made and printed.
