Color Requirements

The criterion for determining color is the percentage of color (CMYK) at each specific point in the image, and not a printer printout or a layout display on a computer monitor. In addition, we recommend that you order a color proof if you have strict wishes regarding the color. Otherwise, color claims will not be accepted.

Transferring layouts

Files with layouts are accepted on CD, DVD, FlashCard through file exchangers (www.fex.ua, www.dropbox.com). You can also send files up to 20 MB via email.
