UV Coating: All our rack cards are printed on our 16pt. Premium Paper, choose UV Coating both sides or if you wish to write on the back, choose UV Front Only.
All art files should be provided at your actual finished flat size.
File Format: Press-Ready PDF (Preferred – unless you anticipate the need for us to make alterations.) We recommend using Press Quality Settings for your pdf output settings; Be sure to include bleeds and crop marks. See Art Specs guidelines here.
Resolution: All file formats must have a minimum of 300 dpi (dot per inch) resolution at 100% of the final print size. Images designed for the web typically cannot be used for printing as they have a low screen resolution of 72 dpi. Print images need to be created at a minimum of 300 dpi or there will be a substantial drop in the image quality.
Color Mode: To ensure the best color, make sure to submit your files in CMYK color mode. RGB files will be converted and colors may change slightly upon print.
Bleed: Bleed is a printing term that is used to describe a document which has images or elements that touch the edge of the page, extending beyond the trim edge and leaving no white margin. When a document has bleed, it must be printed on a larger sheet of paper and then trimmed down. Artwork containing bleed & crop marks may be requested from you by FlintPrints in order to properly produce your printed material. To expedite processing, if your artwork does contain bleed, it is best to supply your files with bleed and crop marks at time of order.
Fonts: Be sure to embed your fonts or create outlines.
