- Allocate website diagrams to printed materials.
With a number of young designers coming from dominant website design backgrounds, the move from website design to traditional design for print can bring with it many design sins. Images rendered at 72dpi and cropped to load quickly on the site can be reproduced very poorly in print you can get away with tiny thumbnails after all blowing things up to a size large enough to bet your luck. There are a number of sites online that offer free or very cheap high-resolution images that are good sources for suitable images.
- Ignoring or not underestimating enough blood.
A very common aberration is sending to get a flat document or image that has no character at all. In general you need to allow at least 3mm in some of each cutting edge. Doing it excessively will not loosen the printer and may crack the sides of the page or give you a white border. It’s always a good idea when dropping an image file to save a layered psd file after that if something needs to be expanded or cropped you can publish this at background level and Hope this will alleviate your problem
- Define obscure fonts and don’t embed or parse for output.
We all differ on this in some places and it’s generally fine if you can be the individual person opening your artwork or document. But if someone else needs to swap files or specify your vector emblem in one of the publications there. Unless you wrap the Used fonts, they can’t express files properly and some software programs might replace unknown fonts with defaults. This is a particular problem when you need to check it years ago and you don’t just need to install your old fonts.
- Install the finished print artwork, spot color set or rgb
There are valid reasons to use spot colors in artwork, if the symbol needs to refer to a specific pantone color. However, in general design work, most prints are sent via 4 CMYK color presses with a 5th color for either luminous or metallic colors or for spot UV varnishes. It’s quite common for lazy editors to embed rgb images into files and want the smart colors that appear on the screen to be reproduced in print.
- Legalize illiterate consumer designs to take you around the house
The consumer is always right, the old saying goes. But it is often said through gritted teeth and a deep sense of fortitude that these hotheads can at some stage leave your troubles behind. It’s often a good idea when first submitting a display to instruct some stinky people to hopefully get them to uphold the design you’d like them to receive. There’s a very real crisis, of course, they judge an important piece of archive you created in five minutes to make them think you’ve lost your money. The middle is alive.
