what is a press check?

A press check offers an opportunity to view your print job as it comes off the printing machine and is typically used to proof and confirm colour accuracy of your job. The press is typically set-up and ready to go with your project but before starting, the press operator will print out a few sheets to review before proceeding with the print run.

how do I supply a print file?

Layout programs such as Adobe InDesign are ideal when designing your print artwork. When sending print files, The Print Group requires press quality PDF files, with all fonts embedded and transparencies flattened.  Images should be at least 300ppi for best results.  Use CMYK or SPOT colour as specified in your quotation (no RGB) and include crop marks and at least 2mm bleed if required.

project showcase: velg 2018 corporate diary

The Print Group were proud to work again with VELG Training on the printing of their 2018 Diary.

The diaries were designed with the same bright and bubbly personality as the VELG team and offer a refreshing and colourful way to plan the year. The design also offers inspirational quotes and advice, with key dates also noted for VELG’S members and the VET (Vocational, Education and Training) community to remember throughout the year. We just love how the design flows from month to month, with each tab and month offering a new combination of colours. The full bleed throughout the diary also offers a very professional finish.

The diary layout offers a monthly view, followed by 1 week per spread. The daily design offers morning, afternoon and evening sections with plenty of room for notes and to do lists for the week. Another great feature of the diary is the notes pages found at the end of each month and also the 18 month year view found at the very beginning of the diary.

The 2018 diary does offer a slightly heavier cover this year, printed in full colour single sided on a 400 gsm hi-bulk artboard and gloss cello glazed double sided. The internal pages have been printed on 110gsm uncoated stock, which is ideal for note taking. The tabs have been custom printed on a 150gsm stock, then die-cut, with the diary bound with silver wire for a professional finish.
