Key Terms:
Print Ready– Is a term used to describe a file that meets all the specifications necessary to produce a high-resolution print without requiring any additional alteration or intervention. In other words, a printer can use the file “as submitted” to successfully create the desired print materials.

Common factors that prevent a layout file from being “Print-Ready” include…

  • Document sized improperly
  • Resolution not high enough (should be minimum 300 dpi at 100% size)
  • Bleeds not set up correctly (artwork should extend at least 1/8” past the cut line)
  • Crop marks missing or incorrectly placed
  • Missing fonts or images
  • Spelling and grammar errors

Print Area– The print area falls inside the cut line and is the part of the graphic that you want printed.

Bleed Area– This refers to the border of a document that gives the printer a small amount of space to account for paper movement during trimming. Artwork and background colors can extend into the bleed area. After trimming, the bleed ensures that no unprinted white edges occur in the final print.

Text Safety Zone– Printing and trimming are imprecise and variable so there is always a chance that the paper will be cut too far in. Since you don’t want any text to be cut away or cut too close it’s important to make sure that all important content is kept inside the “safety zone” at all times.

WANT US TO HANDLE THE DESIGN WORK FOR YOU?

Here’s what we’ll need from you:

  • Your full/high resolution logo with a transparent background
  • Any high-resolution images or graphics you would like us to use in the design
  • A description of what you are looking for and any special requests
  • If you have brand guidelines that you would like us to follow please let us know your desired fonts and brand colours (Hexadecimal format eg. #3399cc)
  • We will often design packaging based on your show’s program cover. Please provide us with a high resolution copy of your program art or better yet, a copy of the working editable file (.psd or layered .pdf)
