HOW TO PREPARE FILES?

 Large format print

TIFF CMYK saved using LZW compression. Final dimensions of the file should be 1:1 and the 5 mm bleed should be added along all the edges of the sheet in order to be able to cut it precisely into the final size. Below we show the resolution table.

Digital printing

Composite PDF CMYK (please, separate additional colours). Resolution of raster graphics in the design should be 300 dpi. Fonts should be converted to curves. Final dimensions of the file should be 1:1 and the 3 mm bleed should be added along all the edges of the sheet in order to be able to cut it precisely into the final size.


 Free shape: scoring, cutting and milling of panels (hard pvc, acrylic, dibond, forex)

The blanking die should be prepared in the form of a vector file and saved in the PDF format. The document can contain only elements to be cut out. Check out in the preview mode if there are any lines, dots and other similar objects left in the file. They are unnecessary in the blanking die, if any, please make sure they have been deleted.

The file with the blanking die should have layers that are properly named and placed in the correct order:
1. Register – (the layer with markers for the plotter – leave empty – a printing house will complete markers)
2. Crease – (the layer with elements to be scored)
3. Thru-cut (the layer with elements to be cut out)
4. Route (the layer for milling)

Please, do not mark scoring with a dotted line. All layers should consist of solid lines unless they are to be cut out as perforated lines. The “Register” layer should be always included in the file.
Other layers should be present only if required.


 Print in white

Digital sheet print (HP Indigo)
Composite PDF CMYK prepared as for digital printing. The white colour should be saved in the file as an additional colour named “White”.Large format print
Separated PDF CMYK. Resolution of raster graphics should be adjusted considering the size of the entire file in the range from 150 to 72 dpi (see: How to prepare files for printing?/Large format print).
The white colour should be saved in the file as an additional colour named “Spot 1”.
