'Drag and drop' is the function by which you can quickly and easily move, copy or upload files.
Can I order smaller batches/single items?
We of course enable you to order the smallest of batches or even single items (depending on the product).
Which data formats do you accept for uploads?
You can create your entire layout in our FreeDesign tool. If you would like to upload pictures and logos, these must be JPG, PNG or SVG files. If you wish to upload a ready-made layout, this can also be done as a PDF file. Text must be embedded in PDF files. Please only use PNG image files for images and graphics with transparencies. The transparent components are automatically omitted.
How high should my file's resolution be?
To achieve an optimum print product, we need a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, or, for posters sized DIN A1 onwards (minimum ½ a full page), a minimum resolution of 150 dpi. The higher the resolution, the better the print quality.
What are vector data/ SVGs?
The data coding does not consist of individual pixels, but rather mathematically defined curved lines. This allows graphics and text to be saved. Vector data is not resolution-dependent, and is scaled without loss of quality. It can be used in the FreeDesign tool.
Do I have to specify a bleed?
Yes. The bleed is the defined area beyond the page format. It prevents white 'gaps' that may potentially be caused as a result of cutting. The bleed is shown in our design templates when you get close to the edge or go beyond it. Use the bleed for peripheral elements or background information. The text should be at least 1.5 mm from the edge of the page format.
What tolerance range do I need to take into account?
When it comes to further processing, precision and accuracy are of utmost importance, which is why the printing industry now uses computerised machinery. But there can still end up being tolerances when cutting and folding paper - depending on the type of product and material used, these can be as much as 1 mm. It is unfortunately impossible to totally discount these differences in cutting and folding. They can result in elements that extent to the end of the page, such as pictures, text or narrow strips, getting cut off, or a layout looking uneven after cutting or folding. To ensure you receive the best possible quality, try to avoid placing text or objects too close to the edge when creating the page layout. We unfortunately cannot accept complaints relating to issues within the aforementioned tolerance range. Further information can be found in the 'Do I have to specify a bleed?' section.
Can I also select other folding dimensions when uploading a ready-made design?
Please create your flyers as per the data sheet relating to your specific chosen product on the product page. Folding dimensions other than those offered by us are not possible.
What types of paper do you offer?
Our team has already found you suitable types of paper for each available print product. The various papers are also often available in different thicknesses ('grammages'). The paper thickness is shown as a number after the paper type. The higher this number, the heavier and thicker the paper.
Glossy (paper with a smooth, glossy finish)
Matte (paper with a smooth, matte finish)
Natural (paper with a rough, matte finish)
Bio (a white recycled paper)
Cardboard (a particularly stiff paper)
Our glossy/matte paper is a high-quality, double-coated paper. Depending on the machined finish, the paper can then be refined with dispersion varnish (matte or glossy finish), as such, we cannot guarantee it will be possible to write/print on afterwards.
Our wet-strength paper is available with a thickness of 115 gsm when ordering posters. It has a blue rear side, and is particularly suitable for outdoor use, as it is non-fading and weather-resistant.
Our film is available when ordering stickers. It is permanently adhesive, white, and has a glossy finish. The polyethylene foil is suitable for outdoor use, as it is water/weather-proof and hard-wearing (tear-proof). Using grade-6 non-fading printing inks can prevent fading for up to 4 months, depending on sun exposure. The stickers are not suitable for use in car washes, are not resistant to car-washing agents, contain solvent components, and cannot be used in primary packaging of food.
What is cellophaning/special film?
Cellophaning involves applying a wafer-thin film onto the print product. This not only refines your products, but also makes them more resistant and therefore longer lasting. Depending on your requirements, this film can then be given a glossy or matte effect. There is also the option of selecting a matte special film with a velvety or linen-textured finish.
What do I have to remember when it comes to digital printing (textile printing)?
If you'd like to use your own image or logo, please ensure your file supports transparencies if these are desired. This is possible for things like PNG files. For production reasons, textile dimensions may have a tolerance of +/- 5%.
What do I need to remember when it comes to washing textiles?
To ensure long-lasting enjoyment of your motif, it is important to heed the following cleaning and care instructions. In general: As son as a textile item has been printed or embroidered, the manufacturer instructions shown on the label no longer apply, as the print motifs are more sensitive than the fabric itself during washing and care processes. Please therefore note the following care instructions (the relevant printing process can be found in the product sheet in the data sheet):
Digital printing (Direct on Garment)
- Always wash und iron the textile product inside out.
- Do not use steam when ironing.
- Various print motifs must not be touched during ironing (e.g. a print on both sides). In these cases, a piece of fabric can be placed between the two motifs.
- Wash your product before wearing it for the first time.
- Do not wash above 30 degrees, and ideally use a gentle cycle.
- Do not use any fabric softeners, chemical detergents or bleaches.
- Do not dry your product in a clothes dryer.
Transfer printing and embroidery
- Generally follow the textile's washing instructions.
- The digital transfer printing and the embroidery itself can be washed at up to 60 degrees.
- Always wash and iron printed textiles inside out.
- Do not use any bleaches.
- Do not dry your product in a clothes dryer.
How can I cancel the contract?
You can cancel the purchase contract within a legal time frame. The cancellation policy can be found here.
What do I do if I have a complaint?
