SPECLE PRO

Specle Pro is our pay as you go full pre-press service: we will have your ad ready and colour managed in less than two hours. The cost for this service is £40 +VAT (including delivery).


When you select Specle Pro you will be taken to an upload form which requires you to fill in the fields of information about the ad you are sending. Once you have filled in the required fields you will have the option to request proofs of you ad for an additional charge of £45 +VAT.


Click on the upload file button and choose the artwork you want to send. Click once more on upload and your ad will be sent to our team. When your is ready to Approve and Send you will receive a summary report via email. Click on Approve and Send and your ad will be sent directly to the publisher.



Exporting Files for Specle PRO

During the Specle Pro we convert all the images you supply to the specific profile of the publication you are delivering to. This saves you the worry of creating individual colour converted files for each title. 

For the best results you should prepare all images to the ISO Coated v2 (download the profile attached to this page below).


Then you can Install ICC profiles on your computer.



• Converting to ISO Coated v2


Take the images from your ad into Photoshop, select Convert to Profile from the Edit menu in Photoshop. Make sure you do not select Assign Profile as this is not the same thing and will not convert the colour correctly. A screen will pop up: select ISO Coated v2 from the dropdown named Destination Space.



• Using the IDML template


To set up your page to the correct size, all you have to do is go to the publication you are sending an ad to, find the size you have booked and click on the id Template button. This will download a template of the exact size you need to create your ad in. Click on it, it will open in InDesign. Copy and paste your content into this document.



• Exporting to the right Adobe PDF Export Setting


Once you have used the IDML template use Specle_Newspaper_Pro_v1 if you are exporting a file for a newspaper and Specle_Magazine_Pro_v1 if you are exporting a file for a magazine. These profiles set ISO Coated v2 as the output intent in preparation for the Specle Pro service.


To install the Adobe PDF presets, download the Specle_Newspaper_Pro_v1 and Specle_Magazine_Pro_v1 attached below and to import those preset into Adobe InDesign choose File > Adobe PDF Presets > Define then click on Load.
