-why PDF?-

The PDF (portable document format) is a cross-platform file format for printing documents. The advantage of this format is that it allows to print your file at an external printer in the same form as it exists at home. You freeze, so to speak, the various PDF settings and profiles of your application file (word, power point, indesign, etc.) so that ir ia possible for the external printing machine to create an identical reproduction.

-How to create a PDF Guide-

small printy Digitalprint Guide for preparing your File

1. set your document in the same size in which it is printed. Do not create multiple template on a larger format. Place your document in a DIN format and avoid a system in letter format

2. Elements that are printed to the edge of the sheet, in so-called trailing edge printing, please provide with 3mm bleed. In other words, backgrounds and pictures can draw 3 mm beyond the trimmed size. Headings and key ingredients place but within minutes of the final format with a safe distance. 3 mm from the edge or fold of paper. This will avoid white borders and text your information does not fall victim to the necessary trimming.

3. images and color depictions please do not compress,  if your images are still not present in any color mode, please set to CMYK. If your images are already available in RGB, we recommend you keep the data.  Our machines will interprete RGB to CMYK data for the press itself . This can lead to color variations. but our print controller is set with latest profiles for conversion, the result is often better than an uncontrolled conversion using a graphics program.

4. Set multi-page documents in the order in such a way as scrolls later. Also add any blank pages in the document needed. The so-called imposition, including creep in brochures, we''ll do for you

5. For double-sided printing is for pagination: page numbers in the right sides, front pages, to create as odd numbers, centered or right justified. Left sides, backs are, accordingly, just as page numbers, centered or left justified to apply. Chapter beginnings are generally provided right sides, fronts, and therefore with an odd number.

6. Do not trust the color reproduction of your monitor or desktop printer. Only professionally calibrated Professional can display colors correctly. It is better, create an convenient proof on our high performance digital printers.

7. Save your document as clean PDF, best described as a PDF/X-3 file from. Main focus here is that the correct resolution images (color and b / w 600 dpi 1200 dpi and line 1:1) and that all fonts and images are involved. This is most easily through Acrobat Distiller.

8. Applications directly from your desktop publishing programs such as MS Word, powerpoint, quark xpress, Indesign, Coreldraw, latex, Scribus, and other programs we cant implement  1:1. This fact is unfortunately due to technical reasons.
