|Web-fed solvent printing on HP Latex, Mimaki ColourPainter.|
UV printing on rigid media with ARIZONA 360 GT
Max. printing area: according to specification.
Bigger jobs are printed in pieces either with 15mm bleed (flexible media printed on web-fed press) or edge to edge (rigid materials printed on flatbed).
You can assemble in single file several smaller jobs and send as one large order.
|Prepare your artwork with no bleed (for printing in pieces we do it for you) or, in case of jobs to be glued to rigid media, with 5mm bleed (i.e. extend each edge of the page by 5mm).|
Do not place trim marks. Instead of this only frame your job.
If you put several smaller jobs in single file, each of them must have a separate frame.
|Prepare your artwork in CMYK model (except for artwork with additional colour). If your artwork contains halftone images (textures, photos), convert it also to CMYK.|
Using different colour spaces or colour models in one document (e.g. CMYK and RGB) leads to incorrect colour rendering and is not covered by warranty.
|Colour Screen Tints|
|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.|
|To achieve solid, saturated black, use black composed of the following components: 33%C 33%M 33%Y 100%K.|
|Do not set your tonal range for values smaller than 5%.|
To avoid visual bands, add some noise to your gradation.
|up to 2m²: 100-200 dpi|
2-5m²: 50-100 dpi
5-20m²: 20-60 dpi
Don't increase resolution through resampling.
|Where one project contains multiple pieces, add a thin-line frame around each piece, and the distance between the pieces must be greater than 5mm. In the calculator’s window „Additional cutting for jobs pieces” enter the number of pieces.|
