A Note on Color Deviations
Even with the prominent printing machines of the latest generation, a slight color deviation is expected. Print results depend upon a number of factors and can be influenced by the nature/texture of the paper used, affecting the degree of whiteness and direction of travel. Other factors that influence printing quality can be the temperature and humidity at the printing facility. As a G7 certified facility, our printing process follows and maintains the global standard G7 grayscale definition for optimal color management. However, even while maintaining the best use of our printing forms and machines, certain color deviations do occur in a tolerable range and do not constitute a reason for complaint.
How do I redeem a voucher?

In which file format can I use my own images?
The approved file formats to upload your own images are jpg or png. In case your own images don’t have the appropriate resolution, we will issue you a warning along with instructions to use a higher resolution. If you still upload images in a lower resolution, it may lead to bad print quality in the end product. In such a case, you yourself will be responsible for insufficient resolution in print.
Be sure to upload only the images that don’t infringe the rights of other parties. In event of any complaints, we may request appropriate evidence from your end.

Live rendering the 3D model of your packaging allows you to quickly check and correct the size as per your design. You can easily examine how the elements of your designs will be laid out and make changes accordingly.
Be sure to note that the 3D renderings are low in resolutions and do not correspond to the print resolution. Also, photos and writing may partially pixelate or blur slightly. However, you can get the best possible rendering of your design by choosing the ‘High-Resolution Preview’.

There are several options to create print data on your own. Simply download your desired layout from our industry-specific templates and start creating via graphics’ programs such as Adobe Illustrator.

What file format must my print-ready data have?
The approved format for print data is PDF / X-4 format. Please note that we won’t be able to print data in other formats.
Will my print data be checked before printing?
Your print data is checked against specified criteria as per our free standard data check. This standard data check ensures whether:
- The dimensions are right.
- The fonts are embedded or not.
- The data is encrypted via password protection.
- The data file is corrupt.
- Design colors are formatted in CMYK or not.
- In case your data is in RGB format, we’ll automatically convert it to CMYK. Be cautious while switching from RGB to CMYK colors, as it can cause color deviations.
What does 4/0 or 4/4 colored mean?
Basically, 4/0-colored specifies that packaging is printed in full color on one side on the front. Please note that all colors are created by the four basic colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black.
Whereas, 4/4 colored signifies that packaging is printed in full color on both sides. This option is currently not available in our online shop.
Bleed points to the area of the print data that are moving out of the final formatting. Typically, the colored areas should extend only 3mm outside the die-cut line in the template. Our design templates have a green line to help you visualise this area.
In order to avoid bleeds, we advise you to print all your files with a 3mm bleed all around. Print files without specified bleed may cause color deviations, so its best to specify bleed beforehand.
Which resolution of the print data is required?
The recommended resolution for print files is from 250 to 300 dpi. Images with a lower resolution may get blurred or pixelated.
Punching contour, adhesive surfaces and trimming.
All packaging is folded or glued eventually, we know this even while designing. Every packaging design has its own graphic orientation which contains the following information:
- Punching contour and creased lines (solid lines)
- 3mm bleed (dashed lines)
- Adhesive areas (grey colored areas)
- This graphic helps you easily locate out which part of the packaging you are working upon. Rest assured these lines won’t appear on the final print files.
- We advise you to create coloured areas as per the orientation lines to enable a consistent print image quality along the edges of the packaging.
- The rest of the information will be available upon creating print data.
What payment options are there?
For a convenient and secure online payment following payment options are available: credit card, debit cards and internet banking.
When will my order be delivered?
The deadline for your packaging will depend on the nature of your order. Please note that deliveries are only carried out on working days: Monday to Saturday.
