What is CMYK?

The CMYK colour model (also known as process colour, or four colour) is a subtractive colour model, based on the CMY colour model, used in colour printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself.
CMYK refers to the four ink plates used in some colour printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). When you are creating your files, be sure to check the colour mode as programs like Photoshop, Word and many others use RBG by default, not CMYK. CMYK may look duller on a computer screen than RGB, and this is more noticeable in large solid colour areas.

Accepted File Formats

We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD.
We can also print from CorelDraw, Illustrator, InDesign, Publisher & Quark files, or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF. If you are unable to supply your artwork in any of these formats, please contact prior to placing your order.

Rich Black VS 100% Black

Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 point should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow & 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold.
For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black, as this may appear blurry.

What paper to choose?

Paper should be addressed first in your design work. For postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker 350gsm to 450gsm card instead of a thinner card. For flyers a 130gsm gloss or 170gsm silk are the ideal options for these as they are more lightweight.
Business cards should never be printed on anything thinner than 350gsm silk on a coated stock or 250gsm on a good quality uncoated stock, but for the best results a 450gsm silk is what we would recommend. Uncoated paper is the best for getting rich and deep dark tones, making it ideal for black and white photographers. For colour photographers, uncoated paper can make colours look “older” than a glossy or silk paper will. Want to feel the difference? Then why not get in contact and ask to see some samples or for us to send you some.

What is Font Outlining?

What does it mean to outline a font? Outlining fonts involves turning text into objects. This process means the font files do not need to be installed on another computer for the files to open correctly, as we might not have the same fonts on our systems as you have. So if you are using a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.

Coating Types

At Headline Printers we have a few lamination options. Matt, Gloss, Spot UV, and Soft Touch. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen will not be able to write on it. In this case a matt or uncoated stock would suit.
Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our soft touch gives a your printing that touch of elegance.
