What is FSC paper/board?
The FSC runs a global forest certification system with two key components: Forest Management and Chain of Custody certification. This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use timber and forest products produced from well-managed forests. The Forest Stewardship Council’s “tick tree” logo is used on product labels to indicate whether products are certified under the FSC system. When you see the FSC logo on a label you can buy timber and other wood products, such as paper, with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests.

What is CMYK and RGB?
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colors used in the printing process, whereas RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colours used by screen displays such as your monitor. Please note that JPEG files are almost always in RGB.
Your document should be created in CMYK mode so that the colors that you see on the screen match the final printed product. If you create your document in RGB, the colors in your printed product may vary slightly. Many of the bright values produced by your monitor cannot be reproduced in print. If your files are submitted using any other colour standard, such as RGB or Pantone, they will be converted to CMYK. Conversion from one colour standard to another may cause colours to vary. If you want a Pantone colour to be matched we suggest you use ‘Pantone Solid to Process’ swatch when creating the artwork to enable us to match the colour as close as possible.
What is Bleed?
The very edges of the document are called the bleed area. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your document, be sure to extend any background colours or design elements all the way to the edge.
What is the Bleed Size and Trim Size?
When to create your document at the full bleed size
If you are working in an illustration program (such as Adobe Illustrator or Freehand) or a photo editing program (such as Adobe Photoshop), we recommend that you create your document at the full bleed size. This will prevent any white edges from showing at the borders after the final product is trimmed.
When to create your document at the trim size
If you are working in a layout program (such as QuarkXPress or Adobe InDesign) we recommend that you create your document at the trim size and include the specified amount of bleed for your product (3mm). When you export your document as a PDF for upload, make sure to include the bleed in your output settings so that the final upload PDF document is at the full bleed size.
What are Trim Marks?
Trim lines are the finished size of the document. The document is cut close to the trim line, but because of the mechanical tolerances involved in printing, the actual cut can happen anywhere between the bleeds and the safe margin. This is why it is important to keep your text and important images within the safe margin.
What is the Safe Area and Safe Margins?
The safe margins are borders that are definitely inside the place where the cut will take place. Please remember to keep all important information, like names, addresses, phone numbers or logos within the safe margin (at least 3-5mm from the edge) to ensure that they aren’t cut off when your document is trimmed. When using a border in your artwork, it is essential that your design has at least 5mm of white space from your border to the cut line to maintain a symmetric appearance.
What is Resolution?
Resolution refers to the number of dots per inch (dpi), or the amount of detail the image has. Most documents prepared for upload should be 300 dpi at 100% of the final print size. Higher resolution means a longer upload time. Do not try to change from a low resolution to a higher one by increasing the DPI in your imaging program, you will need to create the file at the correct resolution initially. Images found on the web are typically at a resolution of 72-dpi, this resolution is much too low for quality printing. In addition, most images on the web are protected by copyright laws. For these reasons, we do not recommend using images from the web. A low resolution image may look OK on your screen but will not print well.
What should I do with my fonts?
Text can be converted to curves (paths) in some graphics programs. This will fix upload errors that result when fonts are not embedded in your file. Please ensure when creating eps’s, pdf’s etc that you embed the fonts.
