What are your artwork requirements?

Document Colors

  • Use CMYK color mode to prepare your files, not RGB.
  • Set the font color to 100% K instead of 4c for black text.
  • Enter the desired Pantone or HKS colors in to the color channel when using special colors
  • Instructions for special colors: Create areas with another process color (CMYK) overlaying a special color using knockout instead of overprinting. Special colors over a CMYK color should be created using knockout.
  • Use greyscale color mode when ordering a greyscale item.
  • Create grey areas in shades of black to ensure a perfect print result in greyscale.

Files in Original Size

  • Create your files for print in their original size (the final trim size).
  • Artwork that is too small or too large has to be scaled to the correct print size, usually without edge trimming (bleed). This results in a reduced quality final result.

The Right Trim/Bleed

  • Always add trim/bleed to your files to allow leeway for cutting differences in production.
  • Our standard trim allowance is 2mm.
  • Envelopes: 1mm
  • Advertising technology products, presentation folders, packaging & calendars: 3mm.
  • Textile stretcher frames: 15mm.

Safety Margin

  • For best results, keep all of your important content at least 3mm away from the edge of the finished size.
  • Keep at least 20mm away from the binding edge on spiral bound calendars or brochures.
  • Make sure background pictures, colors and layouts do extend in to the bleed area to prevent white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.

Page Numbers

  • Check all of your superfluous pages have been deleted.
  • For multi-page files, create each page in sequential order, starting with page 1 (front page) and continuing on until the last page (back page).

Image Resolutions

  • Graphics, images & pictures should be 250 dpi.
  • Color images & greyscales – 250 dpi.
  • Line artwork (drawings & text in a small font size) – 1.200 dpi.
  • Advertising technology & ad posters with text – 150 dpi.
  • Advertising technology products – 72 dpi.

Line Weights

  • All lines should be at least 0.22 pt.
  • We automatically increase lines that are too thin to a printable weight (except lines that are set to exactly 0 pt).
  • Don’t use borders as a way to define layouts as due to mechanical tolerances these might be cut into and show up on the final product.

File Formats

  • Save your files in print ready, vector file formats such as PDF, EPS, AI, PS, JPG, TIF.
  • Reduce all layers in to a single, flat, background layer.

Embedded Fonts & Paths

  • Convert all of your fonts & paths to outlines to prevent printing problems (or if we do not have the exact font on our systems).
  • Allow sufficient contrast between font colors and background colors.

Are you an eco-friendly printer?

Here at 1800-Printing we understand the importance of reducing our carbon footprint; mother nature is always on our minds. We provide the widest selection of eco-friendly and recycled material printing materials in New York.

Our recycled paper is PEFC certified, and we use soy inks in our printing process. We’ve got you covered with everything from recycled business cards to brochures and more! In fact, we currently use recycled card stock as standard.

The printing sector has traditionally had a negative reputation when it comes to environmental stewardship, with wasteful paper handling, excessive electricity and water use, and volatile chemicals that result in toxic waste. At 1800-Printing, we try to put our planet first, and one way we achieve so is through our environmental responsibility plan.

This is how 1800-Printing is making a difference:

  • Using soy inks
  • Using recycled paper stocks as standard
  • Printing techniques like duplexing which reduce paper use
  • Modern machines which drastically reduce power consumption
  • Elimination of toxic and volatile chemicals
  • Alcohol-free printing presses
  • We recycle redundant machines and computer parts
  • We recycle our printing plates, press blankets, bottles, cans & containers

What file formats do you accept?

TIF, JPG, PDF, AI and EPS are our preferred file formats.

We’ve discovered that reducing the prepress process allows us to pass on significant cost savings to our clients. Our prepress requirements also allow us to avoid frequent errors in digital artwork preparation for print, such as font embedding and unlinked pictures. We ask that all files provided for printing be in industry standard formats to ensure quality. We need formats that aren’t reliant on the application, fonts, or other design components utilized to make the piece. The following file types are accepted:

Quark, Pagemaker, Corel Draw, and other similar files can be accepted if they are converted to industry standard graphic formats like TIF, JPG, or PDF.

What is trim & do my files need it?

Trim
We print your files at a slightly larger size so that there are no white borders when we cut the prints off of the sheet. Your background/images will spill out to the edge if you do this.

Safety
There is a margin of error known as the safety when your prints are trimmed down. We require a 1/4″ of safety to prevent all vital information from being cut off. On the top, bottom, left, and right, that’s 1/8″. If you have any issues about measurements, download the template for the exact product you’re making to ensure proper trim and safety.

Who do you ship with?

We use UPS and Fedex for shipping out your orders. Please note that both carriers will not ship to a P.O. box. If you have any questions regarding shipping please feel free to contact us.

Once your order has shipped we will send you a confirmation email and you can also login to the My Account page and find your tracking info there as well.
