PRINTING - DIGITAL
Four Color Process Only - In general, digital printing is more cost effective
on smaller quantities and has shorter turn-around times. It also gives you the
opportunity to print variable text or images (additional charge). As quantities
go up, offset printing is usually the better choice, because the unit cost
goes down. If you're planning to print using the Pantone® Matching System,
offset printing will give you the best match since it uses Pantone inks. Digital
printing simulates PMS colors using four color process toner inks, so color
matching is less accurate. Large solid areas and screen tints produce better
on an offset press. Digital printing will not match offset printing.
Digital Printing Artwork Note: Graphics MUST be CMYK; not RGB or PMS.
PRINTING - OFFSET
Four Color Process - The four color process print base shown in the tables
includes process printing in any location on the front and back covers, plus
pockets (one side of the sheet). If necessary, an overall aqueous coating
(gloss, satin or matte) is applied FREE. We print to industry standard ink
densities on press. If your project requires an exception to this, or needs
to match a sample, it must be clarified and approved prior to production.
Inks will appear different on uncoated or non-white stocks.
Process Artwork Note: Process graphics MUST be in CMYK and not RGB.
We are not responsible for color shifts that may occur when PMS or RGB
files are converted to CMYK. Do not rely on color monitors for accurate color
representation.
PMS Colors - Unless specified otherwise, the print base shown in the tables
includes one or two PMS ink color(s) in any location on the front and back
covers, plus pockets (one side of the sheet). No heavy coverage (up to 35%
coverage allowed). If necessary, an overall aqueous coating (gloss, satin
or matte) is applied FREE. Orders MUST specify a PMS number or a color
match charge of $50.00 (P) per color will be applied. We print to industry
standard ink densities on press. If your project requires an exception to
this, it must be clarified and approved prior to production. Choose ink
colors that are darker than the stock you select. Inks will appear different on
uncoated or non-white stocks. Please call for an estimate when combining
printing with embossing or foil stamping. Additional ink color and heavy
coverage charges are found in the price tables.
PMS Printing Artwork Note: Define colors as spot color and not RGB or
CMYK. Submit vector (.EPS art) with all type converted to outlines or
1200 dpi .TIF file. No RGB, .JPG, .GIF or web images.

Limited ink coverage of non-metallic inks is preferred for recycling.
Heavy Ink Coverage - Refers to the increased amounts of ink necessary for
solid blocks of color or ink coverage exceeding 35% or more. We will notify
you of the additional charge prior to production. An overall aqueous coating
(gloss, satin or matte) is applied FREE.

Heavy ink coverage is difficult to de-ink and is not suitable for recycling.
