LA – Print preparation Q1

The task was to design my own printing checklist.

My printing checklist:

Live area-all important images and text has to be inside the live area
Trim line-make sure all elements are inside this line
Bleed-minimum 3mm
Crop marks-apply crop marks
Ordinary black/rich black– Ordinary black best for body copy and bar codes, rick black best to use when you print solid blocks of black
Fonts-are all fonts right, right size, an correctly placed
Spell check-make sure everything is correct
CMYK-the color MUST be CMYK, not RGB
Images-are all images at least 300ppi?
Format-make sure the format is right
Paper GSM-use the paper GSM fitted for the format of the print
