PRINT DATA SERVICE

All information on the ideal creation of your print data can be found here.

Please download our data sheet for the correct creation of your print data. We have also made the required color profiles available for you to download. You can then either send the finished print data to us using the upload function below (please request the login data from your CCS contact person) or send it directly to your contact person.

INFORMATION ON FILE SETUP AND DELIVERY

So that we can process your files ideally, we have created information for you to set up your data below. If you have any questions, you can of course contact your contact person at any time.

WE PROCESS:

+ High-resolution print PDF´s at least in the “X-4: 2010” standard.
Open set files of Adobe Creative Suite up to the latest version:
+ Indesign (.indd, .idml)
+ Illustrator (.ai, .art)
+ Photoshop (.psd)
Please enclose here:
+ All images, logos and fonts used
+ A small view PDF for layout control
Files created with other applications in the formats:
+ .tif
+ .jpg
+ .eps

GRAPHICS & SCANS

Save graphics and images that are to be placed in open typesetting files with a resolution of 70 to 100 dpi in relation to the output size. Higher resolutions than those mentioned only result in a longer processing time and therefore higher costs. Please create graphics and images in CMYK or RGB mode if possible. ICC color profiles should also be integrated into these for correct reproduction. If we are to process open sentence files, it is best to save the placed image material as TIFF, JPG or EPS (-jpg). Please make sure to include these files when sending data.

DIMENSIONS

If possible, please create your print documents on a 1: 1 scale – that is, as large as they should be printed. Define 2 cm bleed all round. With scaled-down formats, the reduction factor for trimming and image resolution must be taken into account. Please pass the files without color, cut and print marks.

FONTS

If you use fonts in open typesetting files, either convert them to paths or include the character set files.

FILE NAME

Name your files clearly and without the use of special characters or umlauts. The file name must contain a project name, the format size and the respective extension for example “.TIF” (maximum 64 characters).

DATA TRANSFER

You can send us your data in the following ways:
+ Via file hosting services (with large amounts of data, please consider possible delays in the start of production due to long download times)
+ CD, DVD, USB memory stick

PLEASE NOTE:

Check your data before delivery for color profiles, sizes, resolutions and bleed information. We will inform you if we receive any noticeably incorrect templates. If we post-process delivered data, we will invoice you for this. Caution! Guaranteed appointments can be jeopardized by incorrect or missing files. If you have any questions, please contact our PrePress department. If you have to deviate from our specifications for technical reasons when setting up your print documents, please contact our PrePress department before creating them. We are happy to help!
