Quick Tips to get the most from your print - #3 Busting common printer's jargon! Part 1

 

  • A Sizes

The most common paper size used for general printing (see Quick Tips #2)

  • Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop

Leading easy-to-use design programs which will help you create the best files for your print.

  • Artwork

Simply a finished design submitted to be printed - we prefer PDFs.

  • Bleed

To avoid white edges on your artwork add bleed - this simply means that colour continues off the outside area of where the artwork will be trimmed down.

  • CMYK

Cyan (C), Magenta (M), Yellow (Y) and Key(black) (K). Full colour printing is made up from these four colours and print files should be CMYK rather than RGB for print.

  • Laminating

A thin plastic protective/decorative film - either gloss or matt.

We will always help you get the best results from your print. We have an in-house design team who can create your artwork and manipulate your files if it's all too daunting.
