Getting your work to us

 

 

Feel free to post us your work to the address on the contact page. We can accept work on a USB stick, CD or DVD, and old-school hard copy (aka 'camera ready')

 

 

Please don't email us large attachments (anything over a megabyte) as it just clogs up the e-mail system and takes ages to arrive anyway. Instead, please use a proxy site - it's as easy as attaching a file to an email for you, but it sends us a download link so our email system doesn't get overloaded.

 

Among those you can use are:

mailbigfile

transferbigfiles

wetransfer

 

Tell it to send your work to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. And please email us straight after so we know who the work is from!

 

 

If you have your own web site then you might find it easier to upload the files there e-mail us a link to download it from.

 

 

 
 

Considerations when sending electronic copy

 

 

When sending your work electronically (i.e. over email or on a CD) then please remember to include any weird and wonderful fonts as well as any images that your desktop publisher has linked to rather than embedded.

 

 

If you are creating a PDF then this is great but make sure that your application is not set to downsample or compress graphics. I believe that PDF was originally designed for use for creating files that would be good for internet use so most PDF creators reduce the quality of graphics as a default to save download time. This is not good for print and will mean images come out pixellated. Also choose to embed all fonts if possible. Not all fonts will allow you to embed so be careful, opening the document in acrobat and looking at the document properties under the file menu will tell you if a font has embedded or not.
