5 COLOUR ACCURACY

 

Please note we print in CMYK. The digital press can process files sent as RGB but be aware that CMYK colours are not able to reproduce RGB colours exactly as seen on screen. If you are using software where you have a choice, save your file in CMYK.

 

6 BOOKLETS ON DIGITAL PRESS

 

Booklets can be produced on the digital press without bleeds. Common page sizes for booklets are 8.5X11, 5.5X8.5, and 7X8.5. Page count must be in multiples of 4. No need to do impositioning, just send a multi-page pdf with the pages at one of the above mention final page size and the digital press will create the booklet imposition. DO NOT save as booklet format in your software.
