PRINT TEMPLATES

rule


Your artwork has to end up ultimately as Press-optimised PDF files with all fonts and images embedded, in the correct colour space and with the correct trapping, with crop marks and (if appropriate) 3mm bleed: you can supply the PDFs yourself if you wish, or we can make them from your finished layout files for a nominal charge. In addition we can do any extra work that is necessary for GBP 70 per hour. We no longer accept lithographic films.

Read this document, and (for manufacturing jobs) these three print guidelines before using the templates:
1. General guidelines  2. Disc printing for CD and DVD.  3. Paper parts for CD, DVD and MC.

If you need help or can't find what you need, just phone us on the number below.

When sending us your job, just enclose your print files from these templates.The copyright in these templates is owned by Repeat Performance Multimedia Ltd.  Remember that different manufacturers often have different print specifications, so please do not adjust any of the templates. Although we check all our files for viruses before we upload them to our website, we recommend that you run a virus check on all downloaded files before using them.


Adobe Acrobat

Although there are a number of ways to produce Press PDFs, we recommend that you use Acrobat Distiller with our job options settings, and supply both composite and separated files.

The files must have bleed (if bleed is appropriate to your artwork), crop and fold marks, page numbers and the catalogue number. All fonts and images must be embedded, and in either CMYK or greyscale.

(Zipped)

The templates are in CorelDraw 7, QuarkXPress 4.1, Adobe PageMaker 6.0, InDesign CS, Illustrator 8, and Macromedia FreeHand 8 formats: save the zip file to disk, and if it does not decompress automatically after downloading, double-click it to open it. When sending us your job please include all the fonts you have used even if you have embedded them. If you have a later version of the programs please save your artwork in a later version: we support CorelDraw up to X3, QuarkXPress up to v6.5, PageMaker up to v7, InDesign up to CS4, Illustrator up to CS4, and Freehand up to vMX. We also supply some templates in Microsoft Publisher 98, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint formats: they are only for our in-house desktop printing and cannot generally be used for manufacturing jobs because they do not produce CMYK colour separations and the layout is dependent on which printer driver you have installed. If you really have to submit in Publisher, Word or PowerPoint, please phone us first and speak to Robin Springall.

The standard CD booklet templates are set up as printers pairs: you may prefer instead to use the facing pages booklet feature of your page layout program when designing stapled booklets, as this will help you see the readers spreads more easily, and you can then supply the job as individual pages. Templates in Adobe Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, and other bitmap programs are not provided, simply because the file sizes are just too large for normal downloading via the Web. If you don't have access to a vector-based program, we can usually accept bitmaps like Photoshop, tiffs and jpegs subject to a small graphics charge, but you must be aware that the resolution of text will be often reduced; Photoshop layouts should be submitted unflattened: see the General Guidelines page for more details.
