Artwork should be supplied as a vector graphic, as unlike a picture file (jpg, Tif, bmp etc) it is not resolution dependant and will give a better printed result.
Artworks should include 2mm bleed and crop marks and you should include all fonts used or convert fonts to Paths / Curves.
files supplied from DTP applications should be exported for publication (i.e. print ready pdf) as missing plugins can quite often cause problems
