File Requirements:

 

 Bleeds, Crops, Registration, Color Bars  and Page Information

 

        - Bleed (1/8”) .125”  ALL Sides.

        - NO Crops, Registration Marks, Color Bars or Page Information.

 

InDesign or Quark Express:

 

        - Package or Collect for Output (Files, Fonts and Images).  BEST METHOD

        

        - Export to PDF (Press Quality, No Compression, No Printers Marks)

- Outline all fonts.

 

Illustrator

 

        - Save as a Copy as an .AI file with fonts outlined.    BEST METHOD

        

        - Export to PDF (Press Quality)

- Outline all fonts

           - “Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities”  box is checked.

 

Photoshop

 

        - Save as a Photoshop PDF or .PSD File   

           

            **Since Photoshop is a pixel based program fonts and vector lines will not be smooth. 

               You can increase the pixels per inch (PPI) to 600 to 1200.

This will smooth out the lines.

Note: This will make your file much larger. 

 

        Files for Letterpress, Foil, Embossing, Debossing and Die-Cutting

 

        - Files must be Vector. 

- Minimum line weight and white space is .4pt. 

We can not guarantee that it will hold if it's under that weight. 

 

Embossing

 

Line weight must be the thickness of the paper to get a good emboss. 

If you aren't sure what that would be shoot us an email, hello@paperevent.com and we can help. 

 

 

        Colors and Color Spaces

 

- We prefer files in CMYK.

        - PMS colors should be labeled as Spot Colors. 

 

        - If using RGB, color space to “Adobe RGB 1998” and

your CMYK color space to GRACol 2006.

Our digital printing is set to these values for our color management. 

 

  White Ink

 

- Select Standard Digital for Print Method.

- specify in order comments White Ink and what items it will be applied to.

 

 

2. Create a new swatch.

 

3. Name your swatch "White Ink"

 

4. Change the Color Type from Process to Spot Color

 

5. CMYK Value can be anything. However, we recommend 100% C, Y or M

or that is different from other colors in your document.

It makes it really obvious what is going to be printed in White Ink.

 

6. Save the Swatch

  1. 1. Files must be in CMYK, vector art and fonts outlined

  2. For fine lines, we recommend adding a .125pt stroke.

  3.  

          

    

 

  1. 7. Apply the White Ink Swatch to the items you would like in White Ink.
  2.  
  3. 8. Save the file as PDF, or packaged AI or INDD file and send it off to us.
