General Design and Printing Tips
Text and non-bleed images should always be kept at least 3mm from the trim line.
Thin borders on 2 sided artwork are not recommended due to 1-2mm movement in the printing and finishing process. It is difficult to produce an even border on 2 sides for this reason.
Complete Print always prints head-to-head orientation, so all supplied artwork should be supplied as such. Please keep this in mind for folded products like Christmas Cards or rotated orientation books like calendars.
Use a CMYK colour finder for consistent and predictable colour results.
Folding & Scoring
To minimise cracking on folded jobs, we recommend scoring the fold lines.
We strongly recommend you use CMYK Rich Black on large areas of black to ensure a nice solid result. A good mixture for CMYK Rich Black on;
Heavier stock weights use 60 / 50 / 50 / 100
Lighter stock weights use 30 / 0 / 0 / 100
