How to prepare your layouts for ordering

Folding

Detailed specifications for folding can be found in this overview of folding types.

Especially if you require a non-standard fold (e.g. a non-central fold), the fold lines must be set up as overprinting special colour named falzen and with the following parameters, or displayed clearly in a separate preview file:

Set up as: Vector contour in 0.25 pt
Colour for visualization: 100 % yellow
Hue: 100 %
Swatch name: falzen
Colour type: Full-tone colour/​special colour/​spot colour
Overprinting: Overprint contour (only contours)

Please note: Do not try to simulate the overprinting behaviour of special colours through transparency effects (multiply, overlay etc.).

Minimum margins:

To final format: 50 mm
From fold to fold: 50 mm
To perforation: 10 mm (except if perforation and fold are directly on top of each other)

Attention! UV coating, glitter silver and 3D varnish should be omitted at the fold (min. 1.5 mm), otherwise the varnish may break away.

Recommendation: Especially in case of more complex folds, we recommend printing the product out on your office printer and folding it yourself as a test. Page layouts and page positions can easily be checked this way.

Scoring

Creases must be set up as overprinting special colour named rillen and with the following parameters, or clearly displayed in a separate preview file:

Set up as: Vector contour in 0.25 pt
Colour for visualization: 100 % yellow
Hue: 100 %
Swatch name: rillen
Colour type: Full-tone colour/​special colour/​spot colour
Overprinting: Overprint contour (only contours)

Please note: Do not try to simulate the overprinting behaviour of special colours through transparency effects (multiply, overlay etc.).

Minimum margins:

To perforation: 10 mm (except if perforation and groove are directly on top of each other)

Attention! UV coating, glitter silver and 3D varnish should be omitted at the creases (min. 1.5 mm), otherwise the varnish may break away.

Drilling

Drill holes must be set up as overprinting special colour named bohren and with the following parameters, or clearly displayed in a separate preview file:

Set up as: Vector contour in 0.25 pt
Colour for visualization: 100 % yellow
Hue: 100 %
Swatch name: bohren
Colour type: Full-tone colour/​special colour/​spot colour
Overprinting: Overprint contour (only contours)

Please note: Do not try to simulate the overprinting behaviour of special colours through transparency effects (multiply, overlay etc.).

Minimum margins of outer circle contour:

To final format: 4 mm
With several holes: 4 mm (circle contour to circle contour)

Maximum margin to cutting edge:

Maximum margin to cutting edge: 110 mm

Please note: Combining several drill diameters is not possible. We drill first and then fold (in case you wish to combine both processing methods).

Perforation

Perforation lines must be set up as overprinting special colour named perforieren and with the following parameters, or clearly displayed in a separate preview file:

Set up as: Vector contour in 0.25 pt
Colour for visualization: 100 % yellow
Hue: 100 %
Swatch name: perforieren
Colour type: Full-tone colour/​special colour/​spot colour
Overprinting: Overprint contour (only contours)

Please note: Do not try to simulate the overprinting behaviour of special colours through transparency effects (multiply, overlay etc.).

Minimum margins:

To final format: 10 mm
To fold: 10 mm

Attention! Perforations are only possible parallel to the edge of the paper. An obliquely placed perforation is not possible.

Rounded corners

If you do not wish to have all four corners rounded, but only one, two or three, we require a separate preview file or description in the comment field that specifies exactly which corners you wish to have rounded.

Possible number of rounded corners: 1, 2, 3 or 4
Possible radii: 3 mm, 5 mm, 7 mm, 9 mm

Attention! In case of folded products only the outer corners of the open (unfolded) format can be rounded.

Numbering

Numbering can be done in one to four fields in the same orientation (above or next to each other) with four to seven consecutive digits (from 0001, 00001, 000001 or 0000001). We reserve the right to choose between three different production processes, depending on print run size, sheet composition and machine utilization.

Possible
number works/fields:
1–4 works/fields
Minimum size
of number field:
30 x 8 mm (width x height)
Possible orientation
of fields:
Above or next to each other on one page
Possible digits: 4–7 digits (from 0001, 00001, 000001 or 0000001)
Number colour: Always black
Minimum margin
of field to field:
Vertically 50 mm, horizontally 70 mm

Attention! Numbering is not possible on surfaces with varnish, glitter silver, hot foil or blind embossing.
