How to prepare the file:
FORMAT OF THE FILE
The correct format in wich to prepare the file is Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Corel Draw (.cdr)
FONTS AND PATHS
Convert all the fonts to curves (paths)
Graphics must be divided into layers for each colour, indicating the Pantone references
Solid Coated or Federal Standard 595C or RAL Standard.
In case of metallic, fluorescent, or pearl colours create specific layers.
TRANSPARENT CLEAR COAT
It is necessary to draw the picture of the transparent by colouring it with Pantone Rodhamine Red.
Create white layer and ensure this layer is at the bottom of all the colours except black and at
the bottom of the very small graphics (below than 0,10 mm)
– White layer must be smaller than 0,06 mm
– The transparent must be bigger than graphics of at least 0,15 mm
The minimum line width for print is 0,05 mm
IMAGE FORMAT AND RESOLUTION
Any images to print with CMYK four-color process must be in JPEG, TIFF, BITMAP or PSD format,
in CMYK format with a resolution of at least 600 DPI and images must be included in the file .ai or .cdr.
Create the white layer under the image 0,10 mm smaller than the image
SIZE OF THE DECAL SHEET OR STICKER
The minimum size of a decal is 30 x 30 mm
The maximum size of a decal corresponds to the A3 size (297 X 420 mm)
Standard sizes are A5 formats (148 X 210 mm) and A4 (210 X 297 mm)
HOT PRINTING TECHNOLOGY
In case of chrome-silver, gold, or metallic colours printing, specify the same with a
specific layer by indicating “Chromo” and the colour that you want to print
The final transparent can be printed: Gloss, Semi- Gloss, or Matt
In case of Sticker printing all the information related to the decals are valid with the addition
of the die-cut drawing, by creating a separate layer and colouring the cutting line with Pantone
Rodhamine Red; die-cut have not to be too complex, they must have a unique closed line and
the minimum radius in the corners has to be of at least 1 mm.
