This preset profile assumes that the artwork is 100%. If you are working at a smaller scale eg 25% please adjust the resolution settings within the profile to accommodate this, otherwise, any scan resolutions or transparency effects may be too small, once the artwork is scaled up to 100%.
Machines have variable resolutions, ‘superwide’ formats need be no more than 100dpi,
smaller and more detailed products should be 300-600dpi.
We output using ‘CMYK’ machinesAny ‘RGB’ or ‘spot’ colours will be converted honoring ‘Input Profiles’ where possible.
If there are Pantone colours or hard copy you wish us to match please make this clear.
Please utilise the ‘page box options’ in the ‘Adobe Creative Suite’ (Media,Crop,Trim,Bleed,Art).
‘Super wide’ format print needs a minimum of 20mm bleed, whilst smaller more detailed products require a minimum of 5mm, this will need to be larger if printing a double sided product.
