Saving your artwork using the PDF-X1a standard

When you send your file to your printing partner, it is always best to save it in the PDF-X1a format, which is the standard in the printing industry. Before saving, you always need to make sure that bleed and margins are set up properly, as well as CMYK color mode.

After checking that everything in your file is OK, follow the steps outlined below to save your artwork file in the right format.

In Photoshop, go to the top menu, and click File > Save As:

To save your artwork file, go to File, Save As in the top menu.

Under Save as type, choose Photoshop PDF, and then click Save:

Under Save as type, choose Photoshop PDF, then click Save.

If a pop-up window appears with the message below, just click OK.

When a pop-up appears, click OK.

Next, a new pop-up window will appear, with options for PDF specifications. To ensure high printing quality, select [High Quality Print] under Adobe PDF Preset, and use the Standard PDF/X-1a:2001. To finalize, click Save PDF.

Select High Quality Print under Adobe PDF Preset, and use the Standard PDF/X-1a:2001 for high-quality printing.

*In some versions of Photoshop, the Standard could be PDF / X-A1: 2001.

**Other settings may be configured in the other tabs of the pop-up window, but they are not necessary for printing with Gogoprint.

Attention: In Photoshop, it is not possible to visually mark the bleed, and therefore you should always expand your canvas by 3mm on each side and expand your visual objects, images, and elements so that they extend to the bleed area. For more information on bleed, read our Bleed tutorial.
