Pre-Press

The digit­al origin­al is compos­ite – PDF, for making of which PDF/X‑1a:2001 stand­ard and Acrobat Distil­ler are used. Accord­ing to the order either in CMYK or with CMYK+SPOT paints (PANTONE).

Some instructions and recommendations for designing

  1. The design should be located in the middle of the page and comply with the size
    provided in the order;
  2. The bleed should be added equally as 3–5 mm to each edge;
  3. The pdf sent to the print­house should be recom­mend­ably without cutting and assembly signs (or these should be located outside the bleed);
  4. The resol­u­tion of pictures used in design could be 300 dpi;
  5. The over­print on black (100% K) objects is not neces­sary, as this will be added auto­mat­ic­ally in RIP. The design should follow that if the large black objects or letters remain on the pictures either wholly or partly, the black without over­print 1C/1M/1Y/100K (other­wise the picture or colour will start gleam­ing from below) or rich black should be used;
  6. The Over­print Preview should be switched in the design programme to avoid the adding of over­print acci­dent­ally to the white and coloured objects;
  7. As the large 100%K area seems quite light (grey) in offset print, in this case it is recom­mend­able to use rich black (50C/40M/100K) in the design;
  8. The design should follow that the mater­i­al objects and text would be located at least at the distance of 3–5 mm from the edges;
  9. In case of brochures and books the file should also include also the empty pages;
  10. The covers of brochures and books should be also made as pages; in case of adhes­ive bind­ing the back should be on separ­ate sheet or file (the bleed in each edge, design in the middle of the page); the cover design can be also made as the scan­ning (if the picture for example runs across the back), but in this case the thick­ness of the back should be first surely specified;
  11. Die draw­ings, fixed varnish, foil etc. should be on separ­ate sheets (in file).

If the client’s file has SPOT colours, these can be trans­formed into CMYK, but in this case it should be considered that the result might not comply with the one that was in origin­al design.
