  • Cauliflower Group can only produce the best possible results if the Artwork Guidelines are adhered to - where you provide artwork that is in our do not use list we will do our best to process this work but some detail may be lost.( (Most common examples are the cropping of important details due to incorrect size/shape of paper and/or positioning of important details within 1cm of the edge of original design. White or silver media applied to a white background and colour pencil drawings.)

  • Where your artwork is too close to the edge we will endeavour to add a white border to protect important details.
