CMYK stands for Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow and Key (black). It is the colour system used in printing and it involves mixing various percentages of these colours together in a dot, to produce the colours in an image.
Resolution is the term used to describe the number of dots or pixels used to display an image. When printing, a resolution of 300DPI (dots per inch) is needed to produce a crisp, clean image that can be blown up without comprising the quality.
A bleed is used when the image needs to go all the way to the edge of the page. Printers have a maximum printable area that is slightly smaller than the paper size. Therefore, the image should extend 3mm over the finished size. When the paper is cut after printing, any white borders are eliminated.
Crop marks are the crossed lines printed on the corners of a page to define exactly where the print artwork is to be cut to size after printing.
Choosing the right paper and finish is a crucial aspect of quality printing. We can advise and guide you through the selection process, as well as provide a wide range of options. Our stock options include matt, silk or gloss finishes in a wide range of weights, known as gsm (grams per square metre).
