Content, files for printing
Most frequent mistakes
1. Content, files for printing
In case you would like to send the orders through the internet we should advise the following ways for that:
- - if the size of your data files do not exceed the 10 MB limit you might send it through internet;
- - you can also up-load your data files, or any other jobs to our FTP server – in case of lack of unique user name + password you can chose our common (average) possibility of up-loading or you can require for your own unique access from our colleagues;
- - If you would not like to use those links and addresses above you can send your original documents, slides, manuscripts or any other documents by post. You can also send us data files on magnetic drive, media or pen-drives, also on CD or DVD records by post to the following address: Hungary, 1033 Budapest, Szölökert utca 4/a
- - If you would like to send us some corrections or supplements, you can use the links and addresses above, but in this case we would like you to get in touch with our colleagues by e-mail or phone.
2. Most frequent mistakes
Most frequent mistakes that occur in digital format orders:
- - The size of the ordered documents or files do not match with the received digital documents or files.
- - For us CMYK format is appropriate. Sometimes we do not get the documents or files in PDF format or in any applicable format for printing processes.
- - The orders, the files for printing sometimes happen to arrive in double pages or smaller and serial, iterative orders, e.g. business cards are in juxtaposition – but we can only accept them page by page (one in a page).
- - The pictures are be bad, low quality. To avoid this we would like you to give us at least 300 DP pictures.
- - There is no minimum 5 millimeter, symmetrical run-out in the files, and/or there is no 4-colour cutting mark in it.
- - In case of die-cut or varnished jobs the format is not in a single-page format, or /and it is not given in different colours.
- - There are no overprints.
- - The black text is given in 4 colours.
- - Please, do not use colour profile (ICC) while preparing the documents/data files.
- - WE WOULD LIKE TO GET ROTATORY ENDORSER FOR EVERY JOB.
- - IN CASE OF UV VARNISHING IN THE FOLDS WE CANNOT GIVE A FULL GARANTEE AS QUALITY PROBLEMS CAN OCCUR DUE TO THE UV VARNISH, THE PAINT CAN PEEL. IN ORDER TO AVOID THIS PROBLEM, PLEASE INFORM US IN ADVANCE OF UV VARNISHING IS IN THE FOLDS SO THAT WE CAN TAKE CARE OF IT DURING PRODUCTION AND WE CAN CHECK THE QUALITY WITH SPECIAL CARE.
3. Raw materials
Paper sizes, paper types
In the printing industry you have a great variety of paper sizes and paper types – depending on the machinery and the applied technology. The different paper types (offset, coated papers, creative papers, etc.) and also their finish print / surface treatment (coated, uncoated, smoothed, etc.) – can have an effect on the quality of the product, on the price and the aesthetic appearance of the end product. The selection of the most appropriate paper type is a task that requires care. Our colleagues with extensive professional knowledge and experience will help you to solve these problems.
Our printing house uses besides unique paper sizes also standards that are applied in Europe and defined by ISO standards. So we can suggest our clients to employ the most frequent paper- and envelope sizes on a well based experience. If you are not really sure about the paper sizes=types when you order we advise you to ask our colleagues' help. Theyare experts and help you to choose the most appropriate and most economic paper size/type for your needs.
Most frequently applied paper sizes:
ISO "A" is the most widely spread size (calibration) in office work.
ISO "B" is the most widely spread size (calibration) in the printing industry and in other special fields.
ISO "C" is for envelop sizes, calibration of envelope sizes.
About ISO "B" sizes we can tell in general that the printing industryuses them when they print running out "A" size, and it should give space for the run-out signal or control elements (load test strips, colour marks/designation, etc... ). After printing the ‘B’ size papers are cut to size ‘A’ – in the appropriate phase of the finishing work. ‘B’ size in reality is rarely used in office work, because most of the printers are set to apply‘A’ size papers.
