Mistakes made during the submission of files, that are suitable for printing, may lead to problems, which is why we are sharing with you a few rules to follow, so that your production is more memorable. Here they are:
The files should be submitted in vector formats such as AI and PDF, but the AI format is more suitable as the different RIP have different settings.
If raster images are used, they should be with a high resolution with more than 300dpi, such as JPG, TIFF, and PSD
Convert the RGB into CMYK regardless of the format of the image.
If you are using special Pantone colors, the corresponding Pantone number should be indicated in the file.
All fonts should be converted into curves. You shouldn’t have any texts in raster, especially when there is more than one CMYK color.
Leave 3 mm bleeding on all sides.
All objects and special effects should be merged into one layer.
Don’t place texts and other significant objects closer than 5 mm from the final product size, because deviations in the stage of formatting (binding, cutting, die-cutting, etc.) can lead to unpleasant consequences.
Set the right format, so you can get the product you want.
Make sure that the inking of the raster images is under 275%.
