Get Your CDs Printed in Time
Getting any job done on time is important. To avoid unnecessary hurdles and ensure your printing CD order is completed by the date you have in mind, if you have approached CD printing Sydney services, check with them that you have completed all the required steps.
When you give CDs etc. for printing, you must ensure that the files and images have a high resolution i.e. 300 dots per inch for the actual size you want printed. If the files are saved at anything lower than this, it will decrease the integrity and quality of the image.
This will result in the disc getting a totally unprofessional look. To ensure the above tip is followed, the image should be scanned at the particular 300 dots per inch, or it should belong to the group of 300 dots per inch files.
When submitting the artwork to CD printing Sydney services you need to ensure that the fonts are converted – either to outlines, or they should be submitted when the artwork is given.
Utilisation of templates
It is necessary that every image has a 1/8” bleed around the edges so that if any shift is required, it can happen when the CD or DVD project is set up. CD printing Sydney services would probably request you to use their templates when you prepare the artwork. This not only helps the artwork to be set up in a proper manner re printable area and size, it also ensures successful printing on the CDs.
Successful printing of images
It is important that all images that are linked should be embedded or supplied so that the printed image on each disc is done successfully. This exercise can be checked in different ways. CD printing Sydney services will request you to ensure that your programme does not have any missing images before undertaking the artwork.
Selecting the colours
The process for using various inks is known as spot colours or PMS colours. These colours are mixed to achieve the exact colour you would like for your printing.
Swatch books containing a range of colours are available for you to select the colour you want. When using spot colours, CD printing Sydney services will be able to produce colour results that are vibrant and which are great for areas that are large.
Certain colours like magenta, black, yellow and cyan can create a rainbow of colours. If process printing is used, it helps to achieve a wide range of colour flexibility and print options. A white background also known as a flood coat is the best type of background to use.
