Printing instruction

1. Reserved bleeding

There’re product size and printing size. The product size is finished size, 1.5mm bleeding should be added to the product size to increase printing size. The 1.5mm bleeding will be cut after binding. For example, the 85.5*54mm card, if the color pictures or the lines close to the finished size edge, we have to enlarge or extend them to the 1.5mm bleeding to reach the size as 88.5*57mm. This way, there’s no white edge after cutting.

2. About grey color

Please use single grey color / process black, don’t use CMYK grey. Because CMYK grey color is every easy to change, the printing will be blurred and come out with other colors, the finished product is a big difference with original design. If we printed a process black K80, the color won’t change too much, it’s close to the design color after printed.

3. About texts

All the texts should be outlined before you save it in PDF/AI/CDR. It means to make all the texts into curves, the font won’t change when it open in any computer, even we don’t have that font you used in thedesign in our computer. If the texts are not outlined, and it happen that we don’t have that font im our computer, the font will change when we open the file in our computer, ssee below you will know the difference. The problem can be solved if you send us that font.

 

 

4. About the Chromatic aberrations

◆ Please use professional design software to design.
◆ Please use CMYK mode to design, don’t use RGB. CYMK mode is
used for printing while RGB mode is for screen. When we converted the RGB to CMYK, some color will change little, some color will have a big changes, the changed colors probably are not the ones you want them to be. So please use CMYK when you design, then you can see a final color of what you want.
◆ Try to avoid using the easy aberration chromatic. Such as CMYK grey, brown, dark blue, purple.
◆ If you are stickly on the color, we suggest to use PMS or print sample to check color before bulk order.
