Types of files and settings to be saved
Files sent to ThePrint-shop should have the form:
-Vector graphics saved in PDF format in Acrobat 4 (1.3) or (1.6) – fonts converted to curves. If files contain bitmaps, they should be embedded inside the document.
-Raster graphics saved in TIF format with LZW compression, flattened file. Files should be prepared in 1:1 or 1:10 scale.
Each motif should be prepared in a separate file.
Files should be prepared in CMYK 8-bit colour mode. If we receive a file in RGB colour mode it will be automatically converted to CMYK and colour differences may occur.
We also accept a .jpg file without compression or .eps. but they may require an additional work of our graphic designer. This may lengthen the process and raise the cost of production.
Since numerous errors are possible to appear, we cannot accept orders with open files, e.g. ai, cdr, indd, psd etc.
Do not use overprints in files unless you are 100% sure of what you are doing and are using them to gain a required finish. Fonts must be absolutely converted to curves.
For black colour, we recommend using the following components: C:50 M:50 Y:50 K:100 – for UV and Latex printing
C:0 M:0 Y:0 K:100 – for Sublimation printing (textile materials)
You must remember that transferring to production a file, which is incompatible with the above guidelines may result in print errors for which The Print-Shop is not responsible.
