Standard artwork check included



The printability of your artwork is checked free of charge for every order.

We will inform you immediately by e-mail if any changes need to be made.
Standard artwork check included - play it safe

The printability of your templates is tested for every order with a free standard artwork check. If changes are necessary, we will inform you immediately by e-mail. Should it not be possible to print your data correctly, you can upload the corrected files via the order overview.

The standard artwork check determines whether:

  • The page dimensions are correct.
    • If the dimensions do not correspond with your order, they will be scaled to the ordered format if possible (without bleeding). Please note that scaling from a smaller to a larger format (e.g. A6 -> A5) can lead to a poorer resolution.
  • The colours are correctly positioned in the CMYK colour mode.
    • Your files are automatically converted to CMYK from RGB or spot colours files (if no HKS colours have been ordered). Please note that there may be slight differences in colour as a result of a conversion from RGB/spot colours to CMYK.
  • The data is in a closed file format (PDF, JPG, EPS, TIFF).
  • The number of pages is correct.
  • The page order of the imposed data with folders that have more than four pages is correct.
  • The binding of brochure pages is clear.
  • Perforation lines are applied correctly.
  • The data is displayed in greyscale when black and white printing has been requested.
  • Spot colours have been correctly applied and designated.
  • All fonts are embedded.

 
  • Please note that it is possible to adjust the format and/or automatically transform colours without prior notification.

Fine tuning - with our superior artwork check

To ensure optimal printing results, choose our superior artwork check, at an additional cost. If the print data does not correspond to our defaults, we will inform you immediately by e-mail. After modifying any errors, you can upload the corrected files via the order overview again.

The superior artwork check additionally determines whether:

  • The page dimensions are correct.
    • Our customer service will inform you if the format is not compatible with your order, and if scaling is possible.
  • The colours are correctly positioned in the CMYK colour mode.
    • Our customer service team will contact you if your files are not in CMYK. If requested, we can convert your files; however this can lead to slight variation in colour.
  • The resolution is sufficient.
  • Logos and text are a sufficient distance from the edge of the page.
  • The bleed is applied correctly.
  • There are no transparencies (in PDF files).
  • The type of fold and folding position is correct in folders (zigzag or letter fold, landscape or portrait).

 
  • Unlike in the standard artwork check, we do not make automatic adjustments during the professional data check.
