(3) Manuscript size and bleed requirement:

Important! Please read carefully! Some designers tend to omit the draft dimensions or fail to recognise the importance of error accomodation in designing a manuscript. This can potentially cause a beautiful design to be printed as an end product with serious flaws.

Every different printed content have different requirements regarding dimension and bleed. However, their aim is the same, to overcome shortcomings. Please first take your time to understand the 2 biggest shortcomings in the digital printing process.

Shortcoming 1 :
After printing perfectly, error occured whilst cutting. Even though the computer accomodated for 0.01mm bleed, when cutting there might be a tendency for the rotary cutting blade and paper to move - which will result in a 1-2mm error, this has already been minimised by other precautions.


Original printout:  Cutting deviate to left: Cutting deviate downwards:

If you design border/line on the side, an error of 1mm will be very obvious.

Shortcoming 2 :
Digital printing cannot support full-page printing, and will always have a 5mm bleed on printouts. However, if we cut away the 5mm white spaces, it is equal to full-page priting, but on a smaller paper.

To overcome the above mentioned 2 shortcomings,
Method 1 :
Treat the design manuscript like the actual printout, thus not wanting full-page printing, and just leave a 5mm bleed. When the cutting error of 1-2mm occurs, it does not affect the manuscript at all.


Method 2 :
Have the manuscript designed a little larger than actual size, to design "full-page" printing. The background will have a bleed of 2-3mm. The contents and images in the manuscript cannot be close to the border, best 5mm away from the edge of the actual printout. This will result in a beautiful printout that accomodates for cutting error.。

“Bleed”explanation :

To accomodate human error in cutting/other forces in play when cutting, people usually use this method: Have a larger background, and when designing, have an extra 3mm bleed, and contents within this 3mm bleed around the printout are begligible, in other words, it does not matter if the content in the 3mm bleed is kept or cut off.

cutting line (product actual size)

1-3mm bleed when designing (to accomodate cutting error)

5mm bleed inside editable area for beauty, also words and lines will not be cut off when they stay out of this area
 

  .

Design with 3mm bleed, editing area 5mm bleed:

After cutting: Product matches requirement.

 .

No bleed when designing, no bleed within editing area either:

Result: One side got word chopped off and the other, white border.

 .

Design manuscript having the same size with actual product is wrong too.

Result: Due to human error in cutting, might show some white border.

Printing colour modes-----We support and accept these 4 colour modes:

B/W, Grayscale, RGB, CMYK. However, it is essential for the client to understand that colour on the printout will always deviate from the colour you see on the screen, and that RGB colour and CMYK colour have a little bit of differences. ( For RGB converted into CMYK, blue and green will have a tendency to end up in a slightly darker shade. )
 

(6)

Limit on amount of black per printout:

It is a little difficult to print a large area of black in digital printing, therefore, any single printouts with black colour in more than 50% of the area would be charged as full colour printing.

(7)

Manuscript content:

Other than content that infiltrate laws or invade privacy or contains sexual and violence content, we welcome all other normal manuscripts.
