Resources

Hardware

We work both in Mac and PC environments

Software

We use Adobe CC software (eg Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign)

The primary print file is a printable pdf where the fonts are converted into paths and the images are integrated. To avoid possible mistakes, please send a template file (jpg) via email.

Resolution

The printers have different resolutions. Super-large format or XXL size printers need only a resolution of up to 100 dpi. Large XL size machines require a resolution of 150 to 300 dpi. We need a resolution of 600 to 1000 dpi for smaller and photo print quality printing.

The print file to be sent must be in its final size or proportionally smaller. If you have reduced the image, do not forget to increase the resolution accordingly.

For example, 1: 1 has a saved resolution of 60 dpi, so 1: 10 must have a resolution of 600 dpi.

Color management

Large-format printing (banners, tapes, panels, etc.) we print with CMYK colors. Offset printing also has the option of using Pantone colors. NB! a large proportion of Pantone shades are not possible with 4-color technology. If your large image contains Pantone shades, ask your contact person about the possibility to prepare the work with 4-color technology before printing.

For photo-quality prints, the print file can be designed in RGB color mode> Adobe RGB (1998).

Where is the file sent?

If you have a Printworld contact person and his/her email address, you can use the WeTransfer Data Transfer Service (up to 2 GB) to transfer files or request for FTP accounts.
