Below you will find rules for the artwork preparation. These rules will allow us to obtain the best print quality.
Graphic programmes for artwork preparation:
Adobe Illustrator / Corel Draw – PC or MAC platforms
Fonts should be converted into curves or given as an attachment in a ZIP file. The minimum font size depends on its type. One or two-piece font types are used for text fonts.
Graphics should be exposed on one or multiple layers.
Please include permanent embedded bitmaps as a separate attachment. The size of the bitmap should be the same as in the artwork. The Bitmap resolution should be 300 dpi at a scale of 1:1.
Lines and Transitions:
Artwork prepared for flex print should have a line (lines, objects) of a minimum thickness of 0.12 mm, and in counterpoint 0.25 mm. In case of a counterpoint in mixed colours the lines should be even thicker. Avoid tonal descending to 0% coverage (minimum 3%) and 'mixing' colours from CMYK and PANTONE palette.
The artwork cannot have a globally flatten transparency. Any special effects given to the object need to be editable. The artwork cannot be internally masked. Single object or group of objects cannot be set at the same time as transparency and PostScript printing.
Artworks should be prepared taking into account the CMYK palette (for color mixtures)
patterns can be accepted in three different ways:
- PDF sent by e-mail to the customer
- Proof - a paper version, which is a reflection of the previously accepted PDF, sent to the customer by traditional mail / courier mail
- Printing acceptance on the manufacturer’s premises after prior approval of the PDF
