Black & White Printing


Final Trim Size
Any size not larger than 310mm x 440mm for white paper and 420mm x 297mm for colour paper.
Full Bleed Size
This is the size (in millimeters) of the file being prepared. - In this case artwork size is the same as job size because no bleed is needed.
In this way of job preparation you cannot print note pads with graphics touching the edges of the page. Both background and all design elements have to be set at least 3mm from the edge of the paper, leaving white margin.

If you require the print to run right off the edge of the paper (known as bleeding), please choose the second way of job preparation.
Scoring Description
If your artwork will be scored, perforated or folded, please describe where the scoring should be and the direction of the single (V), roll (C) or concertina (Z) fold in the comments to your order.
If possible, please mark where the scoring should be with a thin line on the bleed or the edge of your artwork.

Colour Model
Artwork has to prepared in greyscale. Any colour elements will be automatically turned to black and white.
Colour Screen Tints (grey)
If your artwork consists of large areas in single colour, we recommend to add some noise or slight texture to those areas in order to avoid visual bands.
Tone Gradation
Do not set your tonal range for values smaller than 5%.
Optimum Resolution
Optimum resolution for bitmaps (graphics, photos) is 300dpi.
Please set texts and any important information (graphics, photos) at least 3mm from the edge of a page (in actual trim size) and from scores for folding.

Saving to File
File Formats
Preferred: PDF
Accepted: CDR, TIFF, JPG (not recommended). 
Please note: In case of INDESIGN software, we accept only PostScript files. Otherwise, please use the Comment section to inform us: "Attention: InDesign file. Convert to PS, please".
Accepted: CDR, TIFF, JPG (unrecommended). We are adding the extra fee 3,5 pln, for the preparation of the pdf file to orders with jpg files.
Please note: In case of INDESIGN software, we accept only PostScript files. Otherwise, please use the Comment section to inform us: „Attention: InDesign file. Convert to PS, please"
Additional Information
When saving to a PDF file, set the graphics to high resolution. Save your PDF files as PDF/X, PDF/X-1a or PDF 1.3 (Acrobat 4.0.)

If you have text in your artwork please remember to convert it to curves / paths or attach used fonts to your file (refers only to PDF files).
Don't convert texts to bitmaps!!!

 If your artwork consists of more than one page, please save all pages in a single file. If the chosen file format does not allow for saving all pages in one file, please save them in two separate files named face and reverse. (projekt_awers.tiff, projekt_rewers.tiff)
In case of preparing separate files for finishing, please include in their name information, which sides concern.

If you send more than one file, please send them in ZIP format if possible.

 In case of TIFF files please save them as single layer files, with no additional channels. For complex projects with multiple layers, overlapping graphics, shadows, transparencies etc., as far as possible, flatten to a single background image, retaining texts, logos, lines and other important elements of the project in the vector form only. In particular, this problem concerns CorelDRAW X4, where in extreme cases, despite a good-looking PDF file, the printout may contains errors.
