Please follow our artwork preparation guidelines to ensure that your artwork file is set up correctly.
1. Use CMYK colour mode
Except for silkscreen and pad printing, files should be prepared in CMYK colour mode. Keep in mind that if the setup is wrong, colours on the finished product may differ from the file you sent. Here is how to set your artwork to CMYK colour mode in Adobe Illustrator.
2. Use an image resolution of at least 300 DPI
3. Use the right values for grey elements
When setting up grey elements, set the black color (K) to a percentage between 0 and 100, and keep all other colors (C, M, and Y) equal to 0%.
4. Use the right values for black elements
When setting up black text, thin lines and small elements, use pure black, (i.e. C = 0, M = 0, Y = 0, K = 100). Text, thin lines, and small elements in pure black color should be set to overprint to avoid white gaps around the text. It will give a solid edge to those elements.
5. Use maximum 2 colours for lines that are finer than 2 pt
If lines are 2 pt thick or less, use only 1 or 2 colours. 4 colours may be used for thicker lines.
6. Convert all fonts to outlines, or embed them in your file
To avoid issues with fonts when submitting your file(s), make sure to convert fonts to outlines, or to embed all fonts when saving to PDF.
7. Save and upload your artwork files as PDF/X-1a
The best format for submitting print-ready files is PDF, under the PDF/X-1a standard. Where possible, submit your files in PDF format. See why PDF/X-1a is the right format for printing.
8. Check for overprint
Make sure that no elements are set on overprint, unless you need them to be.

1. Why can my n only be printed per four pages?
Our n are printed and cut to the size that is twice as large as your selected format. The printed sheets are then folded in half and bound together by either saddle stitching or adhesive binding. This process ensures that no pages are falling out from your booklets.
2. How are the pages of my n bound together?
Our n are bound together by either saddle stitching or adhesive binding. The type of bookbinding depends on the number of pages that you select in the configurator. We use saddle stitching for booklets up to 52 pages and adhesive binding for booklets containing 56 pages or more.
3. What is the difference between this product and digital booklets?
As the name implies our n are offset printed, which offers a consistent and high image quality. However offset printing involves plates and set up costs, which makes this printing method only cost effective for large print runs. Whether offset or digital printing is more cost-effective depends on the exact product configuration. Typically offset printing becomes more advantageous at around 300 booklets.
4. What is the fastest delivery for n?
The fastest delivery time for n is d. Please note that you have to submit your order before 12:00 PM. Late payment or upload of your artwork might further delay your order. If you select Digital Proof Print during the checkout process, the production will only begin after your approval.
5. Which production techniques are used?
Our n are offset printed to guarantee the best printing quality.
6. How will my product be delivered?
All of our products are delivered in a securely packed cardboard box.
7. I can't find what I'm looking for. Can I request a quote?

8. How can I upload my files?
You can either upload a single file which contains all pages, or upload separate files each containing one page. Your file(s) can be uploaded either before you checkout and pay, or after. Please note that uploading files late might result in a moved expected delivery date.
9. Which formats can I upload?
For n, please upload your files using the PDF format.
