Guidelines for Preparation of PDF Files for CTP Imaging Files should be:
  • In PDF format version 1.3 or earlier
  • Composite, not color-separated
  • In CMYK color space and Pantone palette, with the embedded profile of Coated FOGRA 39 (ISO 12647-2) for coated media or Uncoated FOGRA 29 (ISO 12647-2) profile for uncoated media (if you need additional or detailed information, please contact our graphic studio) It is understood that whenever supplied data is incompatible with CMYK color space, or a wrong ICC color profile is embedded, a client agrees that we convert the files and is responsible for any and all color mismatch that may result. We will not be held responsible for any color discrepancies that may result from the conversion of color space other than CMYK and of additional colors (e.g., PANTONE, HKS) into CMYK color space.
  • Files can not contain any RGB elements.
  • An order must be compatible with colors contained in the files supplied. Any additional (spot) colors used should be explicitly described in the order. If the work is to be printed with those colors they should be defined as „Spot Colors”.
  • For black and white work, only the black (K) CMYK channel should be used (no C, M, or Y)
  • In multicolored work black text should contain only black (BLACK 100%, CYAN 0%, MAGENTA 0% and YELLOW 0%)
  • Any black overprint should be specified in the order and contained in the supplied files. Text elements on color background should be defined as overprint
  • Print box should be the same for all pages in a publication
  • Whenever a work contains elements to be lacquered, embossed or die cut, a separate additional color (100%) for each group of elements should be defined and described as „lacquer” or „die cut” or filled with a color not used in a work (e.g., Pantone). Detailed description should be provided. Die cut and embossed elements should be provided in separate files as vectors. In case of a die cut element the cutting and creasing lines should be marked in different colors with overprint and described.
  • All elements should be provided in an actual size (1:1)
  • Bleeds should be 3 mm on each side (in case of catalogs and folders 5 mm)
  • Resolution should be at least 300 dpi
  • The work should be centered on a page
  • Trim, creasing and folding marks must be placed at least 3 mm outside of the trimmed size
  • All fonts should be embedded in the file or converted to vector graphics
  • Lines printed with more than one basic color, or light over dark background (reverse) should be at least 1 point
  • The thinnest one-color line must be at least 0,2 point
  • Type size of more than one color text or in reverse should not be less than 10 points
  • Frames and other delicate graphic elements in black should be overprinted
  • Important text or graphic elements should be placed at least 4 mm away from the trim or crease line
  • All files supplied for production should be generated in the same way and all pages of the publication should be the same size
  • For multipage publications we prefer a single file with pages in the order desired, including blank ones (if there are any). The cover, end papers, book jacket, UV varnished and embossed elements should be delivered in a separate file.
  • Final proofreading should be done before files are delivered for production
  • It is assumed the deadline for all elements of work is when files are delivered in their final version and do not require any correction. Any changes introduced after imposition is done will delay production and we will not be held responsible.
  • For color elements considered particularly important a digital proof should be done and it is subject to Client’s approval. Proofs supplied by Clients should be certified and should include the control strip. We recommend Ugra/FOGRA Media Wedge v. 2.0a. If there is no control strip we can not use the proof as reference.
  • Printed sheet – when approved and signed by the Client – becomes the printer’s reference.
  • UV-varnished or foil-covered prints can show difference in color in relation to contract prints.
  • Earlier editions are not considered contract prints and may only serve as a printer’s reference. In such cases there is a possibility of color variations because we would have no information of the way files were prepared and of the printing process, imposition and variations in color that resulted over time from changes of paper and ink.
  • Whenever a Client does not provide proofs the printing process is based on average densitometer readings.
  • Total ink limit should not exceed 320% for coated papers and 240% for uncoated ones
  • We verify overall correctness of received files. However, we do not check them in detail and therefore can not guarantee that all mistakes and discrepancies will be corrected. We do not verify files in terms of content. Responsibility rests with the person who designed the work and delivered the files for printing.
  • After we have received a correct PDF file the imposed sheet layouts are prepared and proofs are printed. They can be prepared using the following technologies (according to Client’s preference): – images of imposed sheets in PDF/tiff format and reduced resolution, delivered and accepted via email/ftp, – laser printouts (2 x A3), scaled according to the initial format from 58 to 90% – delivered via courier service; printing starts after we have received signed proofs or final approval via e-mail
  • We can go ahead and print from the source PDF file without additional approval when we receive specific instructions to print and the file is free from any errors. In such cases any risk related to the interpretation of the PDF file is assumed by the Client.
  • We ask all Clients to notify us via e-mail or by phone whenever files are uploaded via ftp
  • Variations of color between the printed sheet and what one can see on a computer monitor result from the ability of the digital device to display colors. In this respect each device is different. For technological reasons printing presses can not render identical colors that c an be seen on most computer displays.
We print in offset technique.
