NUMBER OF FILES TO SUBMIT

Do not combine multiple jobs or print sides on one page. For example, if you are submitting files for a 2 sided business card, please layout each side on a different page - do not put both sides on one page.


PROOF READ

Be sure to proofread your documents very carefully prior to submitting. Once we have begun working on your files, should you require us to make type changes, or should you submit new files, additional charges may apply.


FONTS

For best results it is recommended to convert fonts to outlines/paths when possible.


BLEEDS & TRIM MARKS

If your job has printing going right to the edge of the paper on at least one edge, then your job is said to BLEED. When setting up files for jobs that BLEED, extra image/artwork must be included aso the bleed can be cute correctly. Please allow 3mm bleed on all sides. (See picture on the left). Please provide us with Trim Marks on every job. That way we are not guessing as to where we should trim the job.


CMYK COLOUR PRINTING

Print jobs printed as full colour, or 4 colour, are printed out of CMYK colours. Please note that Pantone (PMS) and RGB colours do not convert accurately to CMYK. If printing in full colour, then it is best to design your job in CMYK mode from the beginning. As well, make sure all graphical elements are CMYK colours and not RGB.


GRAYSCALE PRINTING

If your job is to be printed in grayscale (black and white) then be sure all images, type and objects have been converted to grayscale or black. Elements supplied in RGB or CMYK colours that are automatically converted to grayscale at our end may not convert to grayscale with the desired effects. It is best for you to handle conversions at your end prior to submitting files.


RICH BLACK

When printing large areas of solid black it is recommended that you use a "Rich Black". Printing only 100% black for large areas may cause the black ink to look light or washed out. By printing with a rich black the black will look much richer. Your "Rich Black" colour should be made up of : 25% Cyan,15% Magenta, 15% Yellow & 100% Black.

Only use this rich black for large areas - do not use rich black for small type.


STROKES & HAIRLINES

Thin lines and strokes should not be less 0.25 points thick, or there is a risk they may not show up on the final printed piece. We will not be responsible for lines not printing if they are less than 0.25 points thick.


PANTONE COLOUR PRINTING

When designing jobs to be printed using Pantone colours (otherwise known as PMS colours) , make sure all graphical elements use only the pantone colors, and not CMYK or RGB colours. In addition, do not have multiple definitions for the same pantone colour. For example, 123 CVU is not the same as 123CV. In this case, two separate plates for PMS 123 will print out.
