RGB and PMS colors will be converted to CMYK which could cause color deviation in the soft copy proof or the finished product. Color working space should be set to U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2. RGB CMYK Orientation Graphic files should have the same orientation. If the front is set in portrait position and the back is set in landscape position, one page will need to be rotated 90° Hello. Resolution For best printing results, we recommend files to have a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Submitting files with resolution lower than 300 dpi may result in the print turning out pixelated or blurry. 10ppi 60ppi 300ppi Fonts Fonts smaller than 7pt is not recommended. If working out of vector based software such as Illustrator or InDesign, all text must be converted to outlines before generating the final PDF file. If using Photoshop, simply flatten the image. When using MS Publisher for design and layout, it is important to ensure the photos, graphics, and fonts are embedded into the file. Lines Keep all lines at least .25 pts thick. While thinner lines may be visible on screen, they may not show on print. Mikey Ross Associate Tel.

It is commonly expressed in dpi or dots per inch. Resolution Rules-of-thumb: The higher the dpi, the greater the resolution, the better the image quality. But don't go overboard. Higher resolution images create larger file size. 300 dpi *** 6 mb 600 dpi ** ★★★ 12 mb 8x24 inches 100 dpi Image resolution is directly and inversely proportional to an image's physical size. When you increase the resolution of an image, reduce its size. When you enlarge an image, lower the resolution. Otherwise, the image will print poorly. 4x12 inches 200 dpi 2x6 inches 400 dpi 300 dpi For printed images, the ideal resolution is 300 dpi for images and 400 dpi for text at the final printed size.

To view print resolution of your image, zoom in up to 300-400%. When taking pictures from a digital camera for your print project, it's best to set your camera to the highest resolution setting. Four-Color Process Printing uses the CMYK çolor mode. Convert RGB images to CMYK using graphics editing software such as Adobe Photoshop.
