Bitmap Images

If you have a bitmap, JPEG, PNG or GIF image we highly recommend providing us with a resolution of 300dpi or more for smoother and sharper looks. Note: Low resolution images will lead to blocky and "pixilated?

CMYK Artwork

There have been several instances where artwork as seen on screen would vary from that of the prints; the primary reason is inappropriate RGB format. We highly recommend you to preview your artwork in CMYK for appropriate high quality outputs.

Bleed

These factors denote the border metrics of your artwork specifying where it has to be cut leaving behind the final size of your product. Trim lines are represented by vertical & horizontal hairlines marked on each corner of the page which can be implemented through designing software such as Adobe InDesign. Note: Be advised with a trim of 2mm on all edges.

Got large areas of Black in your artwork?

If your design has large areas of solid black work kindly use Rich Black to ensure best result. Rich Black is defined as: 50 / 50 / 50 / 100. 100% black tends to wash out in comparison to other CMYK elements in the design.

To insure the integrity of your design, we encourage artwork to be supplied to Starprint in accordance with the specifications documented here.

Any artwork submitted in an incomplete state will require a re-quotation and the print prices indicated for the product will not apply.
