3. Management of texts and images

All text within the design must be expanded and images incorporated

The text must be converted into a path to avoid the loss of the font used and the variation of the desired aesthetic appearance. All images used must be in high resolution (300dpi) and converted in full colour ( CMYK). They must also be incorporated into the document to allow the file to be opened without data loss.
