Image, Text & Trims
All non bleed images and text should be kept at least 3mm from the trim to ensure trim tolerances are maintained.
Please ensure you fonts are embedded or outlined to avoid font incompatibility when printing.
All artwork must be in CMYK mode. Any RGB files will be converted to CMYK and the conversion output may not give the required results.
We recommend that you include the scoring option on all folded jobs to minimize cracking.
Fold panels for A4-DL should be set from left to right 97-100-100 (outside) and 100-100-97 (inside).
Page creep will occur on booklet jobs. To help with finishing all page numbers and non bleed image and text should be kept at least 10mm from the trims. We advise you allocate a 5mm bleed on all booklet jobs.
Solid black areas should be made up of 60% Cyan, 50% Magenta, 50% Yellow, 100% Black to give a strong deep colour.
