You should send us a vector based press-ready PDF file (with fonts embedded) and a preview image in jpg or tiff format. We also accept digital files in current versions of Illustrator or simple EPS files. We don’t accept Publisher, Word and Corel files.
You should prepare your design with Pantone spot colors. Don’t use lot of colors in your design. Best looking letterpress design is with 2-3 colors. Don’t use gradients, shadows and other special effects because in letterpress we can print only spot colors. Pantone colors on computer screens may vary based on the way your monitor is calibrated. For true accuracy use the Pantone Color Publication.
Don’t use extremely thin lines, make lines at least a 0.25 point thick. Die cutting lines should be marked in 100% magenta. We strongly recommend to read our guidelines for double sided letterpress designs.
