To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colourmode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
Fonts should be at least 6 pt.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black colour. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full colour printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Force Colour Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Colour Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Centre.

For the production of Blueback Posters Paper, we use the following technique(s):
Digital printing: Uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to a large home printer, and is cheaper than Litho printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are fewer starting costs, fewer components involved, and no ink drying time required.
Offset Lithography/Litho printing: This technique uses wet ink and aluminium and rubber plates to transfer images and text onto paper sheets, resulting in sharp, vibrant, and consistent prints. While this method may require slightly more setup than digital printing, it's the most cost-effective option for larger print runs.
Based on the material you choose, you have the flexibility to strategically position your posters according to your specific goals and intended use.
Glossy materials are great for interior use on walls, windows, columns and other surfaces.
Blueback posters are great for pasting onto billboards and on top of other graphics. They are made specifically for exterior use as they are more opaque and thus easier to see in bright light conditions.
Waterproof PVC posters are also great for using outdoors, as they have a water-repellant layer and are tear-resistant.
There are several ways to hang your posters. If you want to place your poster outside for everyone to see and to attract the attention of passing customers, try Pavement Signs. If you want to communicate new deals or to preserve your print for a long time, take a look at our Snap Frames. You can also use double-sided tape or poster holders to adhere the poster to a wall without damaging the wall or the poster.
115gsm blueback: This type of paper is mainly used for pasting on triangle plates, two-signs and billboards. The blue back ensures that these posters are not see through, allowing you to paste them easily on another poster. In addition, these posters are made specifically for outdoor use and have a much better adhesion than normal print, because of coarse structure of the back.
Small quantities are supplied on a roll. Large quantities are delivered flat in a box. Due to the delivery on a roll for small quantities, the paper may curl a little at first when hanging. By rolling the posters in the opposite direction and carefully placing something heavy on the poster, you will remove the bend.
No, the posters will be delivered rolled up (large sizes) or flat (small sizes).
