DTP

control of the supplied data, creation of graphic designs

We provide comprehensive services including graphic and pre-print preparation.
We also provide review of graphic data supplied by you including reviewing the quality of the supplied image files (colour scale, image quality, size etc.) prior to printing. We do not provide grammatical or stylistic proofreading.

We use:

  • InDesign CS6
  • Photoshop CS6
  • Illustrator CS6
  • Corel Draw X5

WE KEEP OVERPRINTS SET BY THE CLIENT IN THE SUPPLIED DATA

We prefer PDF format of the supplied file(s), which must fulfil the following parameters:

PDF

colour model CMYK or DIRECT using PANTONE MATCH. SYSTEM
profile composite, do not use transparency, alternatively merge or draw in detail
scale 1:1
resolution 300 Dpi
text in curves or fonts in curves
version Adobe Acrobat 7 or lower, max. PDF 1.6, norma PDF X/3 : 2003
v 5.0
overprint we keep the original setting

Vector formats

AI, EPS, CDR…

colour model CMYK or DIRECT using the PANTONE MATCH. SYSTEM
scale 1:1
resolution inserted bitmap files – 300 Dpi
text in curves

overprint we keep the original setting

Bitmap formats

TIF, PSD, JPEG

colour model CMYK or DIRECT using the PANTONE MATCH. SYSTEM

Brief basic recommendation for linear bar codes

Digital calibrated proof

Digital proof can be used to improve the outcome of the printing process. Our print is not only printed out perfectly, but also correctly simulates the required FOGRA target profiles (glossy paper, offset paper…). Each print is always measured for the standard with ISO 12647-7:2007. The printing according to the digital calibrated proof can be agreed in advance for a special fee according to specific conditions.

Spheres of application:

  1. to check the colours of graphically processed digital data (mainly images)
  2. to check the colour standard of the final print – especially offset

We use:
printer Epson Stylus Pro 3880, RIP EFI Colorproof XF, EFI Colorproof XF Color Verifier Option with spectrophotometer EyeOne, material EFI CertProof Paper 6225XF Semimatt

If the final data is to be approved after being modified in our DTP studio, we send a PDF file (1.5 standard) that can be correctly viewed in the ACROBAT 7.0 program (not Acrobat Reader). When viewing this file, the overprint function must be turned on!
