Requirements for your leaflets and package inserts
Fold type and folding marks 1The type of fold and the format of the product in folded condition should be defined. Tell us which part of the page must be at the top when folded. The folding marks should be placed outside the bleed in the mark colour "All". If you are unsure about this, please contact our specialists in the DTP department.
SAFETY DISTANCE (3 MM) 2 ,
If you place images, graphics or surfaces to the edge (dieline), you must position these objects up to at least 2 mm over the edge (bleed). This will prevent white edges.
TYPE AREA 4 AND BLEED (2 MM) 3
Fonts and other important elements within the page should maintain a distance of at least 3 mm to the dieline.
Type area - defines the area in which the text and for other elements that are important to you should be placed.
FINAL FORMAT 5
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).
