Submitting Print Ready Artwork
These days, a lot of graphic designers are working more with digital formats than offset printing. An offset press offers opportunities that you don’t get in digital yet – from PMS colors to a richer, deeper quality. Think digital photos vs. film if you remember back that far.
In order to ensure your project turns out just like you’ve envisioned it is important that your files are set up correctly for print. While our Prepress Department reviews your files, it makes the process much smoother if they have been set up correctly. So let’s start with the basics!
What is Print-Ready?
If timing is critical
Make sure you have discussed turnaround times before starting your project and plan your project milestones accordingly so that you can keep everything on schedule. Jobs schedule based on proof approval, so if time is tight and there is a typo… Whoops! Missing your deadline could mean that your run can’t go ahead until the press schedule has an opening. Also, you don’t want to incur any rush charges if they could have been avoided.
Print size matters
One of the most common mistakes made when printing is sending a document that is not high image quality, which, if not corrected before the final run, can result in a printout that is fuzzy and lacking in clarity due to a lack of resolution. It’s important that you create your document the same size. Designing at actual size reduces the margin for error with graphics, fonts and layout once printed. Remember that just because something looks great on your screen could become a disaster when printed in the large format, for which it was intended.
Proof your document thoroughly
Allow yourself plenty of time to thoroughly proof your document for any typographical, punctuation and grammatical errors. One of the easiest ways to review is to print out a copy so you can thoroughly read through it all. Also, if you wrote it, have at least one other person read it over. Really.
Print out a proof to see your artwork
Printing out a proof allows you to see how everything looks when printed. Even though it won’t be to size, it is also a good idea to fold up the proof to mimic your product. It allows you to see ahead of time that everything is laid out correctly, reads the right way, and nothing falls off the print area.
All this will give you a good start in creating that 3 ring binder, pocket folder, box or packaging that your clients need.

Should your Sales Boxes and Marketing Kits be corrugate boxes or paper board?
When you are looking for boxes for sales kits, information packets or sample marketing kits it helps to know more about your materials, possibilities and printing options.
The world of boxes is vast – do you need a corrugate box to help architectural samples or a heavy paper stock that can hold patient information kits or a bottle of perfume?
First lets break it down.
E-flute, single faced, double wall – all of these are corrugates and all of them have interesting properties and uses for your design projects.
The main thing you get from corrugates is strength. If you need a sturdy box to hold samples or need to convey a greater sense of solidity with your brand, corrugates may be the way to go.
Printing and more:
The best quality printing (4cp +) is done on a C1S (coated 1 side) sheet which is run through an offset press and then adhered to the corrugate. There are also options of foil stamping and debossing and direct printing.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies
Corruagate cuts well, so the shape of your box, window cuts, custom closures and flaps are all possibilities.
Printed heavy paper stocks can be made into an amazing array of boxes for anything from patient information kits for healthcare to financial portfolio or organizational kits and more.
Customizing Paperboard Boxes:
These stocks print like a dream, so you have the same wide range of options from 1 color PMS to 4cp+ and spot varnishes.
Printing two sides is also not a problem, allowing your to have the inside of your box as well branded as the outside.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies:
Corporate Image has a wide range of sales box and paperboard box dies to choose from already, but if you have a need for custom windows or looks, you can work with our package designer to get what you need.
