Frequently Asked Questions

Art Information

Why submit vector art? My file worked fine for brochures?

Vector art ensures that there is no loss of quality during production and also allows Adinaline to trap spot colors and improve registration. Many products, such as brochures, are printed using offset digital printing methods and have easier registration setups.

Can I increase the DPI to raise my resolution?

On a raster image, once the DPI has been reduced it cannot be raised again. All art raster files submitted to Adinaline must be at a minimum of 300 DPI for production. Web images are saved at a 72 DPI resolution and will not print clearly.

Do we need white on clear products?

For any product produced that is clear, we recommend using a white backing on printed logos and texts. This will increase the visibility of the ink once placed on glass or a colored background. White should be used to back up the art or as a flood behind the entire decal. Please indicate which method you prefer when purchasing a clear promotional product.

Why do I need spot colors on my 4 color process art?

Large areas of coverage and specific PMS matches are not guaranteed in screen printing. Often a spot color is needed to meet our clients' expectations. Additionally, the small text or elements created out of process colors will not hold up to the coarse lpi used.

When I submit spot colors, why do you ask for 4 color process?

It depends on the file type and product being purchased. Many photographs and art with gradients and shades are often better off printed as four color process. While spot colors may be identified, unnamed or multi color blends usually separate themselves into CMYK.

My art looked fine on the laser printout, but very rough on the product. Why?

If a low resolution tiff or grayscale art file is submitted, it will always look better when printed on laser paper. Laser or ink jet printers both recognize shades of gray and will not use a halftone dot system. If the art is grayscale and no tones are requested within the print, the art loses all the shading during the film process and the output is rough.
