ARTWORK GUIDE

ARTWORK GUIDE

PANDA PRESS DOESN’T LIKE TO SAY NO TO A CHALLENGE.

SO WHATEVER FORMAT YOUR ARTWORK IS IN, WE WILL PRINT IT.

 

FILES

  • Indesign and Illustrator Files need to be high res, print ready PDFS with 3mm bleed, crop marks, and CMYK.
  • Any perforation, fold or cutter lines need to be spot colours and set to overprint in the attributes menu. Publisher and Word.
  • To ensure your document is printed as it appears on your screen, you need to make a high res PDF of your document and include bleed, this needs to be added if you have any artwork running off the edge of the sheet.
  • The PDF can be made by selecting the option in the file menu.
  • If we print directly from the Publisher or Word file there is a chance of fonts and images appearing differently to how you saved them.

COLOURS

Artwork received using Pantone, Spot or RGB (commonly Web colours) will be converted into CMYK format (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) unless specifically requested at brief/quote stage – this may cause some colours to change.

Our CMYK Print Workflow uses technology not commonly available to home/office printers or monitors and is calibrated and maintained to a recognised industry standard (ISO / FOGRA). As such your printer or screen should only be used as a guide and not to accurately proof a colour.
