Therefore, we're happy to accept whatever you have and will advise you if your artwork needs to be tweaked in order to produce a quality result. Please note that Mircrosoft Word, Powerpoint, Publisher and Excel are not suitable for print, so we'd ask you to save/export your document to PDF prior to submission.
