When printing on our digital press you must be aware that our toner is translucent. (See through). Printing on a white coloured substrate does not pose any problems but when printing on a clear substrate your design
will appear washed out and if printing on a metallic the CMYK colour will also have a metallic sheen. There are some extra instructions you will need to follow as regards your artwork. Download the PDF instruction leaflet about this here.
Guidelines to make the most of digital….
The file format we prefer is PDF.
We can accept .ai, .eps, .psd and .ind but be aware these formats sometimes require further supplementary files for us to print your job perfectly.
Please contact us for further details if you want to use the above alternative formats.
All colours used in your artwork should be set as CMYK and spot colours set using the Pantone+ Solid Coated system. If your files are set up as RGB or using different pantone systems there is a chance the colours will shift and may look different to what you are expecting.
If your design contains large areas of black, it is best practice to build a rich black. Our preferred rich black mix is C20M20Y20K100 This will give a great constant dark black.
Black and white images look excellent using our print process but large areas of grey are not recommended. Try to build greys a percentage of black only to avoid colour casts.
If you follow our advice you should get a great looking flexible pouch.
