How to prepare print-ready artwork

  • When supplying artwork to Snap we need high-resolution CMYK PDF files with a minimum of 3mm bleed on all 4 sides
  • We  will need cut-marks if your job is scored or perforated.
  • Indicate position of same on the bleed section to really help. 
  • Outline all fonts.
  • Ensure all photos used in the artwork are high-resolution 300dpi, colour mode CMYK.

Why we need a high-resolution PDF @ 300dpi

  • There are different requirements for both printed material and images for the screen. If you use an image from a website in your printed material it is more than likely to distort as there are fewer pixels or dots which make up the image. Images for the screen are generally 72 dpi (dots per inch) and images for print need to be 300 dpi.

CMYK colour mode explained

  • Shorthand for the colours used in Four Colour Process Printing. Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black.

‘Bleed’ explained

  • This is the printed area which extends off the trimmed area.
  • It is not possible to print all the way to the edge of the paper sheet. To achieve this effect it is necessary to print a larger area than is required and then trim the paper down. Typically a designer would allow an extra 3mm or bleed to colour and image areas to allow for a little leeway when trimming.

Crop marks explained

  • Printed or drawn lines indicating where the paper should be cut to produce the correct page size. Crop marks are necessary for offset printing because the original paper that goes through the printing press is usually larger than the final page size.

If your job is a booklet with spine:

  • Supply the Front & back cover (both sides) in a separate file & to include the spine size.
  • Please note Microsoft Word & Publisher files cannot produce a PDF to the above requirements.
  • If looking for 500 or more copies printed, the document has to be laid out in a proper program you can get ‘steps’ [colour separations] from. In other words, the lack of CMYK images support in Word/Publisher is one of the reasons why you shouldn’t use it to create documents for printing on an offset press.
