You can now send your files colored using the intended PANTONE® Matching System (PMS) color instead of having to color it using CMYK colors. Every effort will be made to print your intended color within acceptable standards. SPOT COLOR PRINTING Submit black and white bitmap images at 600 dpi and grayscale mode images at 600 dpi for standard spot printing. FOUR COLOR PROCESS • Every element of the file must be colored with process CMYK colors (no RGB, indexed color, etc.). Files must be 300 dpi or higher. • PANTONE® Matching System (PMS) spot colors and process colors are produced using different methods. Therefore, colors produced in four color process will differ from PANTONE® spot colors, sometimes significantly. Refer to a Solid to Process Color Imaging Guide for color conversions. PRINTING BLACK VS. BLACK FOR FOUR COLOR ORDERS Use printing black (C-80%, M-80%, Y-80%, K-95%) instead of 100% black when in registration with other colors, in areas with heavy ink coverage, and for bold type or lines (2.5 points or thicker). Use 100% black in all other instances. If the CMYK mixes used in your file do not match the Multicolor numbers chosen, we will use the file as is and print as a “CMYK Scan” with no guarantees. SWATCH LIBRARY Our Swatch Library can be installed on equipment that is running any Adobe product. This will give you access to all of our colors and their mix settings to ensure that we print exactly what you create. The instruction file will walk you through process of setting up the file. The library and instructions for installation can be found under “Help and Resources” on our website.
