The most typical mistakes made by print layout designers:
1. The RGB colour values left in a layout
2. Low resolution of images
3. No bleeds
4. The document has not been centred
5. Overprint enabled for white colour, as a result of which the white objects are lost during printing
6. The use of transparency effects which have not been flattened or adjusted for raster layers. It is particularly important to do that (Flatten Transparency) if the transparency effect with Spot colours and overprints is used, as well as when the transparency effect is used on another transparency effect or in combination with other effects such as Drop Shadow etc.
7. Incorrectly adjusted effects may look differently on a printed material than those on the screen
8. Unnecessary overprint settings. As a result, colours may look differently on a printed material than those on the screen
If a print layout designer has not eliminated these mistakes before file submission, any objections in this regard will not be accepted after printing. It is not always possible to spot such mistakes before printing, even though we check the files and notify of any errors therein as long as they can be found. For this reason we kindly ask the print layout designers to pay special attention to these common mistakes and eliminate them before sending files, since most often it is the main reason for unexpected flaws in the end product.
We assume no liability whatsoever for the mistakes left by the print layout designers
