Guide for sending artwork to print ring crown caps

Printing is on a "silver coloured" tinplate steel or on a "grey coloured" TFS steel using the OFFSET printing method.

File Formats

  • Adobe Illustrator (*.ai)
  • EPS (*.eps)
  • Adobe Photoshop (*.psd)
  • Adobe PDF (*.pdf)
  • InDesign
  • CorelDraw

To reach best print quality send scalable vector graphic files (*.ai, *.fh, *.eps). This means the graphics consist of vectors or paths. Vector graphics being scalable make possible a clean high quality print.

When using Photoshop separate layers for every colour should be created. Embedded images and files should be sent with the document. When working with Corel Draw the file should be exported in the illustrator format (*.ai).

When only images or scans are available these should be saved as in *.tiff or *.eps format with a resolution of 330ppi.

Monochrome images or line art should have a resolution of 1200ppi. Photorealistic graphics should have a minimum 300ppi in four colour CMYK mode.

Fonts that are used in the artwork must be sent with the files. Send the font suitcase or save the fonts as pathes or curves or outlines depending on software used.

The resolution needed is 60 lines/cm (150 lines/inch).
