The quality of printing for textes and curves is really better under an A2 format than a pixel based software like Photoshop.
Therefore we encourage you to use this software for business cards, flyers or leaflets. However it is mandaroty to use it for the following products :
- Lettering (Adhesive vinyle)
- Die-Cut (Cutting scheme)
- Pantones (Offset printing)
- "CutContour" cutting line for stickers, banners or rigid boards.
Never forget to outline all textes before sending us you file(s) and link all images.
