How design and print works
Specific templates are used which need size and print requirements, these are print in offset.
Once you’re ready to start with the design, there are 2 ways to go:
1) You and/or your designers create the design for the units.
- In this case we will send you our design template with instructions to follow.
It’s very important that you follow the instructions to make sure we print the units with the highest quality possible. It’s also very important you follow the colour instructions, by doing so our production team will be able to match your brand colours as closely as possible.
- You send us the design template back, our design team will do a check to verify if everything is good to print.
In the event something needs to be corrected, you’ll be notified by us. Some corrections can be done quickly by our designers, others might require a correction on your end. This is based on a case-by-case basis.
- Once the design is approved as good to print on your side and ours, we’re ready to move forward with the order!
It’s imperative that you let us know what finish you’d like on your units; don’t worry, we’ll ask you via email before starting production.
2) Our designers handle the design of your units.
- You send us your brand assets, and our designers create the design for your units entirely free of charge!
Our designers will work hard to respect and honor the specific style of your brand. Remember that we can offer an amazing print if you send us great assets. Vector formats are always preferred for logos, and we love our images in CMYK
- Once our design team has put together your design, we send it to you for review.
You’ll let us know if you’d like us to change or correct anything. We can make as many changes and revisions as are necessary until you’re happy to go to print, entirely for free. If you’re happy with the design, so are we
- Like in point 1: once the design is approved as good to print on your side and ours, we’re ready to move forward with the order! And also; it’s imperative that you let us know what finish you’d like on your units; don’t worry, we’ll ask you via email before starting production.
Important considerations if you’re designing on your own:
- If you’re using images make sure they are at 300 dpi, nobody likes a crispy looking image. Also, remember CMYK is a must! otherwise colors will not print they way the are supposed to look.
- All images and logos need to be embedded, we don’t want to miss any files!
- Convert your text to curves, this way you can be sure the exact copy and font you want to use is respected entirely, and we don’t run any risks of the system changing anything automatically.
- Always respect the 3 to 5 mm bleed. You’ll easily be able to recognize these areas on our templates. Sometimes there can be a very slight paper shift of about 1-2 mm; by using the bleed we don’t run the risk of your design being cut off.
