Art Prep Tips:
- You should always start and finish your designs in CMYK color mode.
- We only want 300 dpi files and no less.
- Do not use transparencies
Never use shadows, glows, or any other transparency (image or otherwise) on top of a spot color. Always convert your spot color to CMYK and flatten before sending.
- Do not use overprints.
Overprint can cause unexpected results. We suggest that you turn all overprint objects off before submitting your files.
- Gray Scale Images
Grayscale images that are converted to CMYK will have a color shift in the final print. That shift may be green or yellow. Always check the CMYK values of your grayscale in the final CMYK document. If there are other values other than black in your grayscale image, there is a chance that the color will vary. To eliminate all values other than black, use your Channel Mixer (adjustment layer) in Photoshop, then click "Monochrome" and adjust accordingly.
Rich black is an ink mixture of solid black, 100% K, with additional CMY ink values. This results in a darker tone than black ink alone. If you print black alone as 100% K, the resulting black may not be as dark as you might like.
We recommend using: C 60 M 40 Y 40 K 100
This will give you a deep, dark, rich black
