Workflow

PROGRAMMES

Illustrator CS6, Photoshop CS6, InDesign CS6, QuarkXPress 8.02, FreeHand MX. Files from earlier versions of these programs can also be used in consultation with the graphics department at vertical vision.

DATA FORMATS

eps, PDF X1 or X3 (CMYK), tif, ai, indd, fh, qxd

DIMENSIONS

Please set the data in the format 1:1, 1:10, 1:25 or 1:100, with the bleed margin and/or format outline of at least 5 mm in the end format.

FONTS

Please attach the fonts to the printing data as a separate font suitcase or convert them into pathways.

LOGO/ SIGNET

Logos should ideally be provided in vector form so as to guarantee a loss-free transformation. Otherwise the same parameters apply as for images (see below).

COLOURS

We request that you send colour-compliant proofs with Ugra/Fogra Medienkeil, made using the data sent and/or corresponding HKS or Pantone specifications. Returns cannot be acknowledged if these proofs are not sent along. A certified proof can be created for a charge. We must moreover note that not all printing processes can show colour spaces and special colours. We will be glad to advise you in advance.

IMAGE DATA

Save images either as TIF or EPS with inactive DCS and in CMYK ISO coated V2 (ECI). Expo prints and shop layout should be in high resolution for interior design. Working colour space: ISO coated V2 (ECI). Other colour spaces are possible. Please ALWAYS embed the profiles.  

–  Resolution, see table  (refers to final format)
–  If the scaling factor is different, please be sure to take this into account

Print size, viewing distance, optimal final resolution  
Up to ca. 1 m2 (100 x 100 cm) 1 - 6 m 150 - 200 dpi
up to ca. 5 m2 (100 x 500 cm) 6 - 10 m 75 - 100 dpi
over 5 m2 over 10 m 28 - 60 dpi

If the file is not saved in final format but in a ratio of 1:2 or 1:10, a loss of quality must be expected in the later scaling.

DATA TRANSFER

You can send us data on CD/DVD (please label clearly) or via e-mail (up to 15 MB), but also via download-link.
After consultation we can provide you with access to our FTP-server. Please note that no special characters or umlauts can be used in file names. You can circumvent this problem by using data compression. 

We accept no liability for the accuracy of the data sent.

QUESTIONS

We will be glad to answer any questions you might have.
