The printing process that we use for full color processing is primarily CMYK. We print using the primary colors of pigment: Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow and Black. This is the same 4-color (or full color) process that you see in the majority of quality magazines, post cards and national advertisements.
RGB is primarily used to display graphics on computer screens using a combination of just 3 colors: Red, Green and Blue. If your file is in RGB, it must be translated into a CMYK file in order for us to print it. It is important to use CMYK graphics when you begin designing your work, as the color translation between RGB and CMYK may not always be exact. Converting these files is a simple process that is outlined in your graphics software instructions or help files.
We do not recommend using images from the internet as we require high resolution images for printing. The image quality from the internet may only be 72 dpi in RGB, which may result in poor quality prints that do not meet your requirements.
Any type of font is acceptable as we have many font types available in our system. However, if we do not have the font that you specifically request for, we will ask for the font template to be sent directly to us.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FTP is the best means for moving large files across the Internet. FTP is a client/server protocol that enables a user with an FTP client to log on to a remote machine, navigate the file system of that remote machine, and upload and download files from that machine.
No. The colours of the same artwork will look different when viewed on different mediums, as we use CMYK whereas your computer screen uses RGB. Further, the colours of the offset printed artwork will also not match the colours of the printed copies made on your inkjet or LaserJet printer.
