Some interesting information!
CMYK IS MOST RECOMMENDED FOR PRODUCTION PRINTS
Colour is perception within the brain of the action of specific wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation reaching the eye.
Those wavelengths that the human eye see as colour are collectively called the visible spectrum.
The entire range or gamut of colours that the human eye is able to see can be achieved by adding together in different proportions and intensities. White light contains all the colours that the human eye can perceive. No colour system can match all of that range, but each system has a colour gamut of its own which identifies the lesser range of colours that the system can reproduce. In computer monitors, the RGB colour system is capable of showing millions of different colours. But not all of those that the eye can see the limitation of the phosphor which emit the light.
Never trust the colours seen on the monitor but use the software's colour information to identify the colour rather than judging it by eye. Care should also be taken to use a reliable proofing system, which provides near accurate colours by the printing process.
One may not realize how important it is to remain within the specifications of colour difference.
Colours will look different in different weather conditions and the mood of the person at that given point of time.
For example - if a person is angry or stressed out, the darker colours looks darker. If the mood is soothing the colours look fine.
Due to uncontrollable pigment fading, vehicle discoloration and paper ageing, the colours will change in the course of time. These colour changes are more common in the light colours.
COLOURS WILL MATCH TO ONLY 90 / 95 % OF THE ORIGINAL / DIGITAL PRINT. Colours will look different on different textures of paper, after UV coating or lamination or in different climatic conditions.
It is a term used in the printing industry for all the processes that are involved before actual printing. These include data entry, scanning, editing, layout, design, proofing, outputs, color printout, color separations / corrections, & plate making. Essentially all these operations are prior to the final print, be it paper, board, metal, cloth or any other printable surface. In some cases such as panels, posters, citations etc. the pre-press out-puts form the final print (due to minimum print runs)
This term applies to the actual printing process. It may be screen printing, offset printing (web or sheet fed) metal printing or gravure printing. The entire process to transfer required matter onto a print stock is the printing process. This process is mechanised in 95% of applications.
A terminology commonly used to identify all the processes involved after the printing has been affected. It may a simple binding process to a complicated die punching & embossing. In order to give the printed product a classy finish post-press operations are very critical. After printing on paper or board, depending on the requirements, lamination (matt/gloss) varnishing, embossing, U.V. coating, die cutting / punching, hard binding, ring binding, jacket heat sealing (for books), foiling etc. are some of the processes involved. They are not only time consuming but also expensive at times. Especially in the packaging industry, post press is a passport to marketing.
Please do remember
- We wish to impress upon our patrons that: Sufficient time must be provided for drying of solid colours.
- Post press activities will need extra attention for quality, hence time and cost should be provided for - for example die cutting, foiling, embossing, lamination, UV coating etc.
- The files given by you must be in a publishing software format CDs and Pen drives or by email ( large files can be uploaded on to the FTP Server)
- Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Corel Draw, PSD or PDF. Always save in a lower version please do not assume all the service providers have the latest version of the software!
- Please make sure the fonts, links and the resolutions are perfect.MS Word, Excel, Photoshop, PowerPoint, publisher, Office etc are only office automation / editing software. Kindly avoid giving your final file format in any editing software. Photoshop files not recommended. Photoshop files can be given provided they are accurate.
FOR PRINTING PURPOSES, THE COLOUR FILES SHOULD BE IN CMYK FORMAT ONLY. PLEASE PROVIDE A HARD COPY / COLOUR DUMMY FOR ENSURING THAT ALL THE PRINTED MATTER IS RIGHT.
Kindly be aware that - the quality of output is directly proportional to the quality of inputs. The price is higher for short runs and ALLIED SERVICES
