Technical Specifications:

When cutting documents, a word or logo too close to the edge of the document can be cut by accident. This is why we require a 1/8 inch safety zone to be respected on each side of the document.

Even the most modern printers cannot print to the edge of the paper. They need space to hold the sheet in place. So if you want an image to be printed to the edge of your document, you will need to create a bleed of 1/8 inch around. That means your document will measure 1/8 inch more per side (so 1/4 for the top and bottom, and 1/4 at left and right). This excess will be cut off after printing and you will then have a full-page (bleed) print.

Each image is composed of points. The more dots per inch (dpi), the better the quality. For digital printing at Photo Graphique M.F., we recommend supplying your files at 300 dpi at the final format.

Often, when a file is transferred from one computer to another, the font changes because it has not been embedded in the file. You should always provide us with your fonts when sending native files. If you do not know how to incorporate your fonts, we advise you to simply vectorize your fonts. In Illustrator, for example, select your text using your black arrow and navigate to the “Type / Create outline” menu. However, by providing a PDF file, you will not have to provide your fonts.

The colours displayed on a screen and the colours that are printed are not composed in the same way. On your monitor, tiny red, blue and green color dots (RGB / RGB) make up the colours. In printing, it’s a mixture of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) inks. To avoid additional service charges, make sure your images are in CMYK mode, not RGB.

Please ensure that the files you provide are preferably in high-resolution PDF, EPS, or simply in their native format, including fonts and images.
