Some consumer desktop publishing applications cannot fully produce the file types needed for commercial offset printing. Even if you are using capable software to create the required files, non-designers may not fully understand how to create files for commercial offset printing. We believe it is necessary to understand thes requirements before purchasing any prepress materials.

 

Regarding ink colors and printing process, main file preparation considerations are use of CMYK graphics and separations.

 

    * CMYK & RGB

Computer graphics generally use RGB (Red, Green, Blue) or CMYK colors.  Web graphics are RGB images. Most printing utilitizes CMYK inks and all full-color graphics need to be saved with CMYK colors.

    * Separations

For offset printing, Printing in CMYK inks or spot colors,  a file that can be separated into separate files for each ink color must be supplied. Each separation contains only elements of the document that is going to print in one colour of ink. Certain print plate makings are designed for these color separations.
