SCALE / RESOLUTION / LIVE, TRIM & BLEED AREAS
- Build at full size 150 DPI or….
- Half size at 300 DPI, etc
- Add 1/4” for bleed, and keep text within 0.25 inch away from trim edge.
When precise colour matching is crucial please provide a spot colour reference with a “PANTONE” callout for solid coloured areas. CMYK colour code must also be set up to match the pantone colour code as prescribed by the PANTONE digital CMYK colour coding & matching system.
Please note that while every effort is made to match the specific colour, your computer screen and the material it is printed on may slightly differ.
Since CMYK and RGB are specific to the device they are created on, there is no general conversion formula. Instead they are done through color management systems using color profiles that describe that space being converted. CMYK to RGB conversions can not be 100% exact.
