How to design and transmit your files to print your flyer
to print classic flyer, high-end flyer, hang tag and bookmark, before sending your file . PDF, please respect the 6 importants points for the 6 checkpoint related to the online printers business before transmitting your proof. Upon receipt of your orders, our teams will verify your print files to ensure that they match your configuration and can be processed without delay or errors.
The finished size (excluding bleed and cut lines) of your flyer must match the size of the configured product.
Provide a quiet area: no logo, text or visually important elements within 5 mm of all edges of the flyer.
When creating your visuals it is imperative before even starting to switch your creation software to CMYK mode. Use the correct colorimetric mode in your models from the start by checking that the color profile selected during creation is CMYK (Cyan Magenta Yellow Black) and not RGB (Red Green Blue).
For a high-resolution printing of your quadri colour images, it must be transformed into CMYK before being recorded. You have to check the 3 parameters to ensure that your image is of sufficient quality for a high resolution print: definition, size and resolution.
A high resolution is considered to range from 250 to 300 DPI. We can go down to 200 DPI for a gray level image. However, anything below this value will not be suitable for high quality printing.
Files are to be transmitted in vectorized and flattened PDF format. If your file font is not “vectorized”, your text will be replaced on our computers by a proxy font. And your creation will not be respected…
BLEED AND CROP MARKS
Your file must be configured with the corresponding crop marks in the ordered format (scale files will not be accepted). Crop marks show where your document wille be trimmed.
In addition, your file must always contain a lost background of at least 5mm bleed per side. Ink that prints beyond the trim edge of the page to ensure it extends to the edge of the page after trimming.
Bleed and crop marks are configurable when exporting your files (Illustrator and Indesign).
HIGH QUALITY PDF
During the export of your file from your creation software (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Gimp, etc...) we recommend that you use the "Optimal quality" option to create Adobe PDF documents for high quality prints and proofs. It must conform to PDF-X 4.
For your print on coated paper (modern coated, graphic cardboard, premium coated, recycled coated, chrome coated, creativ paper coated) the output colorimetric profile to be used is the «ISOcoated v2_300.icc».
For your print on uncoated paper (White uncoated, bulk uncoated, color uncoated, digital uncoated, digital recycled uncoated, premium uncoated, recycled uncoated, creativ paper uncoated), the output colorimetric profile to be used is the «ISOuncoated.icc».
If you have not done so, we will change the intent of rendering your file in the production stream.
