- color works should be saved as Composite CMYK (without separation)
- black texts on a colored background should be printed (overprint option with - 100% Black)
- the file should have cutting markers according to the format compatible with the order, graphic and text elements should not be located less than 4 mm from the cutting line
- thin lines and other graphic elements should be defined in 1 color, it is unacceptable to generate text from 4 colors

- 300% for printing on coated papers that do not meet ISO guidelines
- 270% for printing on uncoated papers
2. File delivery
Files can be sent electronically to email addresses and our FTP server
After the client sends files with a graphic design, we check them and if any errors occur we contact the customer. The customer decides to re-send the corrected files or to continue working on files containing errors, thereby taking over the risk of receiving a sub-optimal product.
The printing house IS NOT responsible for color differences resulting from the conversion of non-CMYK color spaces and additional colors (e.g. PANTONE, HKS, etc.) to the CMYK color space. By providing data incompatible with the color space (profile) required in this specification, the customer agrees to the conversion and is responsible for all color deviations in this respect.
