There is no "perfect" print in the world, but the seven tips mentioned below may help people achieve near-perfect printing.
1. If your print has a cross-page design, it means that the image or text on one page will cross over to the next one. At this time, it is best to first determine the paper guide rail and the gripper teeth. The location in the factory, then place the material as close as possible to that area.
In addition, try not to split one text onto two signatures.
2. Always maintain 1/16 inch (jobs requiring a simple cut) or 1/8 inch (Other work) bleeding. Any image that exceeds the cutting line must have a certain margin (usually 3 mm) outside the cutting line so that when the trim is trimmed, the trace version is not calibrated. This excess is called bleeding. Therefore, when cutting a pile of pages, appropriately increasing the amount of bleeding can improve the overall job cutting quality.
3. If you send a printed document that requires die-cutting, it is best to store the die-cut lines in a separate layer. As a result, the printer can turn off this layer in the document before printing. In addition, if the proofs you get are already printed on the die-cut lines, then you must let your printer know that these lines do not need to be printed. This may sound simple, but there are indeed many people who cannot do it.
4. First of all, make sure that the paper you choose can achieve the desired printing effect. Some papers may be too thick to fold many times; some papers may not be suitable for UV coating, some papers may take many days to dry thoroughly, and some papers may only be water-based, otherwise they will be bound. Equipment damage.
5. When designing a multi-page document that is intended to be saddle-stitched, it must be taken into account that the pages or pages of the book move in the production and leave the spine, because the more the number of pages, the higher the thickness of the spine, the easier it is. this circumstance occurs. In order to avoid the phenomenon of uneven text and images in the inner page caused by this situation, it is better to gradually shorten the gutter margin of each page from the outermost page.
6. When you submit a print order for a print shop, it is best to attach a printed product and written instructions. If your record does not indicate the number of pages for your product, mark it on your sample. Give written instructions to your colleagues to read and let them help you find places that are not easy to understand.
7. When you are still in the concept stage, you should contact the binder factory to let them know what you are thinking. Not only can they help you achieve your goals, but they can also give you a lot of cost-saving advice.
If you ignore this step, then many simple tasks that can be done on high-speed equipment may need to be done manually by people. This will both delay production time and increase production costs. In addition, through the interaction with the bindery, you can let more people understand and like your work.
