Your printing documents should be converted to a PDF file, this makes it easier to process your data. Other file formats, like word documents, are very sensitive to other computers and sometimes change their complete formatting when opened on these. A PDF file will ensure that your selected fonts and margins will remain. Most programs already offer an easy PDF export function today, otherwise you can use the following free-of-charge program to convert your files to PDF:
1. How to Install PDF Creator
After you have downloaded the PDF Creator and run the file pdf24.exe by double clicking, a printer with the name PDF24 will be installed on your computer. Select this printer for your documents if you wish to convert them to PDF.
2. How to Use PDF Creator
Open your document, e.g. word document. Select "print document". In the list of possible printers you will find one named PDF24. Print your file to PDF24 and your document will be converted in to a PDF file, which you can save on your computer. You can upload this file to our site.
If it is not possible for you to create a PDF file, please send us your documents via email. We will convert your files to PDF and send them back to you for proofing. After your approval we will print your order.
For calculating your price, you are required to indicate the number of colour pages. It is not necessary that you indicate exactly which pages are in colour, as our printers automatically recognise colour pages. You will be informed of any differences to the amount you indicated and charged where applicable.
