Preparing the file for printing

We print the packaging exclusively according to the graphic designs provided by the Customer. Our specialists check each file you send for technical preparation for printing.

If it is necessary to make any corrections to the project, which we have received from you, please contact us by e-mail: produkcja@wegasp.com. Each change in the layout

will be sent to you for the necessary approval for printing. It is also possible to send a preview photo to your office. The Printing House is not responsible for

printing errors resulting from incorrect preparation of the file for printing by the Client, as well as for substantive errors in the project (e.g. in the texts).

The Printing House reserves the right to affix production identifiers on finished products in accordance with the standards of the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

File format

The recommended print file format is the AI extension generated using Adobe Illustrator. We also prefer TIF extensions and high resolution PDFs made with the use of a professional

software for computer graphics (Photoshop, CorelDraw). The graphic file should look good at 100% magnification (actual size). When saving, it is important to set the high resolution

file (300 ppi), change the color scheme to CMYK and maintain the appropriate bleeds and margins. It is also possible to transfer open Corel files (with text converted into curves),

.eps, and .psd files (with flattened layers required) to print.


Only CMYK graphics files are used in the printing industry. Therefore, when preparing a project it is necessary to change the mode of all graphics from RGB to CMYK (in the project or

during export). Please note that some colors may change their saturation when changing the mode. It is possible to use additional colours from the Pantone palette if additional inks are

to be used for printing. It is also worth noting that a poorly calibrated monitor and a regular printer do not present colours reliably. For colour verification we use a digital proof,

which we can prepare for inspection before printing. Pantone colour verification is carried out using suitable colour samplers.

Decreases and margins

Where the design contains elements or backgrounds to the very edge of the publication, Client should use decreases. This means that they must not end flush with the cutting line, but must extend

beyond it so that they can be cut off (to avoid a white border around the finished work if it is cut off imprecisely). The slope size shall be at least 3 mm. The use of internal margins

is also important. All important elements (texts, logos) should be moved away from the cutting line by 3 mm. This will prevent the risk of these components being "cut to length".

Resolution of the graphics

Your projects should have a resolution of 300ppi. Otherwise, individual pixels will appear on the printout and affect the aesthetics of the product.


Black text should have only one colour component (100%K), texts that contain admixtures of other components may cause problems with the so-called print fit (equal overlapping of printing inks),

which may result in blurring the shape of the letters. The minimum height of the smallest letter must be 1,2 mm. All texts should be sent as vector objects and converted into curves.
