Preparation of graphic materials
Before we can begin printing, the graphic materials we received must be processed.
The specific nature of flexography means that every file must be placed on a matrix which allows it to be cut out with a stamp and the colour to be adjusted.
After finishing adjustment of the label to the profiles of our machinery, we send the client a PDF review version of the label for verification.
Written confirmation of acceptance (by e-mail or fax) is a condition for sending the label to print.
At the client’s request, we can next make a colour proof. The proof is made with all the relevant colour profiles.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Below are general guidelines for preparing graphics files, which will help us prepare a design which meets your expectations.
Files should be saved in .ai format (Adobe Illustrator CS6 or lower) or in .cdr (CorelDraw X4 or lower).
Additionally, it is necessary to attach a separate bitmap in .psd or .tiff format with layers saved. For every open file, we also request that you send us a PDF.
If colour proofs have been prepared for the design, please send these along with the documentation.
Lines used in the design should not be narrower than 0.10 mm (one-colour) or 0.15 (white on coloured background).
Please save the design with text converted to curves.
If alterations or modifications are foreseen for the design, including those with open text, please include the font used on the design. Minimum font height is 4 points. Minimum printed point is 5%.
If colours other than cyan, magenta, yellow, or black are used in text, please remember to use Pantone colours.
Please complete this form and send it to us to submit an order. This document points out technical aspects of label preparation which can sometimes be forgotten in the rush of making arrangements regarding the graphics themselves and the offer.
