The following is a guide for submitting artwork to Colortec. If you have any questions or are concerned that your file may not meet our requirements, please contact your sales representative or our prepress department.
We accept press-ready PDF, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign files from Mac and PC. We also accept CAD files in DXF format. Please provide a reference PDF if submitting any of the aforementioned file formats.
Contact the Prepress Department if you have other formats you wish to send.
We provide extensive color management in all of our processes.
We are certified as a G7 Master Printer in our digital workflow. More information on this subject can be found here. http://connect.idealliance.org/g7/home
If your job uses specific Pantone spot colors, the Pantone Color Bridge guide is a useful reference as to how your colors convert to a CMYK printing space.
For jobs requiring output on various substrates and equipment, we will strive for consistent color throughout.
If you have printed work you wish us to match to, please provide a hard copy prior to production.
We will provide a digital soft proof of your job, generated from the print file, in PDF or JPEG format. These proofs are for Content Approval, not for print quality.
At your request, we can produce a reduced size printed proof of your large format project and/or a section at full size. This may add additional costs and production time to your job.
