For printing forms, we use CTP technology (Computer to Plate), to create a maximum B1 format pressing plate (1000×700 mm) without using a film, thus providing the best possible quality and speed, and as a result we avoid various mistakes that may occur during film fabrication and subsequent manual installation.
We are also equipped with CIP 3 software and machinery, which enables us to transfer data on colour settings from PDF files to printing machines.
We print with Heidelberg multi-color machines, which is a guarantee of high quality and reliability. All printing machines are fitted with a reversing device, which enables fast and high-quality double-sided printing.
We can print on all types of paper and cardboard, from 60g to 400g.
The machines are equipped with CIP 3 software and hardware, for transferring color settings data from PDF files to printing machines.
Finishing is a process performed on each printed material after the printing itself. After the paint has dried, which depends on the type of paint, paper and method of application, the printed sheets are treated with finishing processes so that they are suitable for use, regardless of which graphic product it is; it depends on your wishes, means and purpose of the project. We have our own bookbinder, so we first bind the final product for you and later enrich it with special techniques such as UV varnishing, foil printing, blind printing, etc. We are also no stranger to manual bookbinding, which you can see under the heading “Hand Bookbinding”.
- Number of pages
- Dimensions (final format of printed matter)
- Printing material (type of paper or cardboard)
- Type of printing (one- or both-sided)
- Adding value to the printed matter (lamination, UV printing, etc.)
- Finishing (type of binding, folding, perforating,gouging, cutting, numbering, puncturing, addressing, packaging, etc.)
You may send us electronic material via email to addresses posted on our website via WeTransfer or upload the on our FTP server. It is also possible to provide us with material on portable media (CD, DVD, USB Flash Disk/Drive/Key).
Text may be written in any text editor (e.g. Word). If you also wish to include images, it is important to not include them in the text, but attach them as individual files (e.g. image.jpg).
Photographs, suitable for quality printing, must have the resolution of at least 300 dpi. This can be checked in image organizing software, such as Photoshop, where the Document Size info reveals for which printing size is appropriate for 300 dpi.
CMYK is an acronym for the colour pallet, which is most suitable for printing. It consists of four colours, from which the full colour spectrum is reproduced during printing: Cyan (light blue), Magenta (reddish), Yellow and Key (black). Since computer monitors and printers use another colour scheme (RGB), all files must be converted to CMYK before printing.
A “live edge” means that the printed matter is cut in such a way that the printed surface reaches the very edge of the paper. In such instances, an addition for cutting is required and it must reach at least 5 mm beyond the final dimension of the printed matter.
We do not start printing before the client inspects and confirms the printed matter, regarding content and form.
The thickness of the back depends on the number of pages, type of paper and binding. When all these information are stated, we are able to determine the thickness.
