Art Files "How To"


Explanation of how to upload files

Trayliners can be designed and supplied to our Prepress Department in any of the industry standard Mac software such as Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, QuarkXPress.

Preferably, your art should be supplied to Schwarz, as a collected, stuffed job with fonts and all supporting documents. If the design contains flattened Photoshop art, please associate it with the layered file. This is required for reason of color corrections which may need to be performed in order to match the press sheet to your proofs.

Image resolution needs to be 300DPI, CMYK color mode.

Color of the black type created in Photoshop has to be set to C-0%, M-0%, Y-0%, K-100%. Also black type layers should be set to Multiply blending mode. (overprint background)

Schwarz Printing does not accept black type made up of process. Rasterized type is also not accepted.

For the reversed out type, the font size should not be smaller than 7 pt. and for better quality, in some cases, Schwarz may add a black outline around the type placed on a dark background - this and any other changes, will always be presented to you for your approval. To send your job to Schwarz, collect its files with fonts, stuff or zip it to one file, to upload this file click here
