Artwork Questions

7. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CMYK and RGB?

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black: the inks our Indigo digital presses mix together to make colours on your printed job.

RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue: the colours of light a computer screen mixes together to make colours on your screen.

8.WHAT IS BLEED?

Bleed is the name given to ink that prints beyond the trim edge of the page, ensuring your artwork extends to the edge of the page after trimming.

As there is a degree of movement when printing on any press, you should always create 3mm bleed on all edges where bleed is needed.

Supplying your job without bleed may result in white edges when the artwork is trimmed.

9. WHAT DOES DPI MEAN?

DPI is the amount of ink dots per inch. All images should be 300 dpi as 300 dots per inch is the required standard for printed material.

Anything below 200 dpi may not be good enough resolution for printing.

11. DO YOU SUPPLY PROOFS?

Yes! Once you have agreed to proceed with your project, our artwork team will either produce your design files or check the files that you send over. We will be on the look out for any resolution, font or image issues, as well general size and layout problems.

CPR Education always requires that you send an email signing off your artwork before we go to print.

NOTE: We will not check spelling or grammar.
