Make sure the text still maintains the required margin even when graphics bleed. Color Requirements We have a new “Accurate Color” System. You can now send your files colored using the intended PANTONE® Matching System (PMS) color instead of having to color it using CMYK colors. Every effort will be made to print your intended color within acceptable standards. File Requirements Create one item sized correctly per document. Placed graphics and text should be sized at 100%. Fonts Using your illustration program, convert all text “to curves” or “create outlines” in your files. Never use the stylization palette to bold, italicize, add drop shadow to, or put outlines on your fonts. Four Color Process Printing • Every element of the file must be colored with process CMYK colors (no RGB, indexed color, etc.). Files must be 300 dpi or higher. • PANTONE® Matching System (PMS) spot colors and process colors are produced using different methods. Therefore, colors produced in four color process will differ from PANTONE® spot colors, sometimes significantly. Refer to a Solid to Process Color Imaging Guide for color conversions. Margin Requirements For spot color printing using one or more spot colors, artwork must have the position noted in the special instructions, or a sample must be attached. Four color process printing should have at least ⅛” (.125”) margins. Printing Black vs Black for Four Color Orders Use printing black (C-80%, M-80%, Y-80%, K-95%) instead of 100% black when in registration with other colors, in areas with heavy ink coverage, and for bold type or lines (2.5 points or thicker). Use 100% black in all other instances. If the CMYK mixes used in your file do not match the Multicolor numbers chosen, we will use the file as is and print as a “CMYK Scan” with no guarantees. Spot Color Printing Submit black and white bitmap images at 600 dpi and grayscale mode images at 600 dpi for standard spot printing.
