To speed up the submission procedure, you may follow this checklist for checking of your own Artwork:
1. Is the Artwork sizing and resolution DPI correct?
- Is the file format JPG/PDF/PSD/PNG?
- Are the files layer flatten? (for PSD files)
- Is the Artwork set to CMYK colour mode?
- Is your text size clear & visible to final finished print size?
- Does the Artwork include at least 5mm away from the artwork edge to prevent it from cutting off?
If you’ve checked the following list, you’re ready to submit your Artwork to print.
When using images in your artwork, you should do so carefully. Just because the images in the artwork look good on the monitor, it does not necessarily mean they will look good on the final printed product. To ensure the sharpness of the images set in your Artwork, you should check the resolution (DPI) of the images in the artwork. DPI measures the amount of pixels per inch.
Please note that there is no way to turn a low-resolution image into a high-resolution image by changing it’s picture . You need to acquire the image in a higher resolution set up file and replace it in the artwork for print.
CMYK vs RGB
Whereas monitors emit light, inked paper absorbs or reflects specific wavelengths. Cyan, magenta and yellow pigments serve as filters, subtracting varying degrees of red, green and blue from white light to produce a selective gamut of spectral colors. Like monitors, printing inks also produce a color gamut that is only a subset of the visible spectrum, although the range is not the same for both. Consequently, the same art displayed on a computer monitor may not match to that printed in a publication. Also, because printing processes such as offset lithography use CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) inks, digital art must be converted to CMYK color for print. Some printers may prefer your files be delivered in RGB with ICC profiles attached, as this allows the printer to use color management methods when converting to CMYK. Other printers may prefer your files in the CMYK (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow/Black) mode, as this is the mode required for the printing process. If an RGB (Red/Green/Blue) file is submitted, it must be converted to CMYK for print.
Converting Artwork for Hotstamp / Spot UV
For the best outcome, faster & easiest process, we recommended creating the design in vector-format, such as in Adobe Illustrator (ai) or Photoshop (psd). Overlay with K100 Black (CMYK: 0,0,0,100) on the area you require the print effects. Save the Artwork as a new file.
