Print data requirements for tubes
Please only use our template when creating the print data. Please actively ask us after ordering.
Final format, type areal
Branded areaHorizontal and vertical area in which no elements of the same colour as the tax stamps are allowed.
OVERPRINTING / LEAVING SPACE
With overprinting the upper element is printed directly onto the lower element - both colours mix with each other.
With leaving space, the lower element is “left open” for the area of the upper element - the colour is preserved in its pure form.
Please embed all fonts to be used in the print data. Alternatively, the fonts to be used in your layout can be converted to curves / paths.
COLOUR SPACE CMYK
The printing industry works with the CMYK colour space (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Set your files to this colour space. RGB (red, green, blue) is used for the display view, but can’t be printed.
SPOT COLOURS (PANTONE OR HKS)
Use the original names for colours in the PANTONE or HKS colour table. The conversion to CMYK will be carried out via the printing machine. Spot colours can only be used in conventional printing. The CMYK colour space is used in digital printing. – Spot colours are only simulated.
Only use high-definition images, depending on the image size at least 300 dpi (dots-per-inch). Images with less DPI, such as low resolution images from the Internet, cannot be printed and will appear in print as "pixelated" (out of focus).
The maximum ink coverage should not exceed 300%. Black should be composed of pure black (100% K).
In order to present colours on transparent materials, as well as gold and silver foil such that they are rich and and powerful, selected elements (logos, pictures,...) should be printed in white. Define a solid colour for this with the name "HPI-white”, with a bright colour (e.g. 20% cyan).
Place HPI white surfaces under a given element, and set the upper element on "overprint".
