There are several issues here. The "damage" is aparently already done. There is no real damage. EPS is an old format but widley supported. Yes, there are better options to save transparent bitmaps. For RGB files PNG and PSD. For CMYK TIF and PSD. Regarding the compression there are several ones on each format. On TIF just do not use JPG compression. ...

No, that is not how printing with Pantone colors works. You can't simply select a Pantone color and use it as you would any other color as there is no way for the printer to know that it should be printed using a different ink, it will be separated to CMYK inks the same as everything else. If you open the Channels panel in Photoshop you will see channels ...

If the pdf is self contained and, well prepared it should be no issues. It is a common practice when making layouts of magazines where peolpe send de adds. Edited: Always there are things that could go wrong. But make a test, prepare some PDF, make a layout, insert them and at the end, prepare another PDF with the other PDFs inside. If you can see it ...

You can achieve this with offset or silk screen or even most other printing methods. You'll need to print the pink as a solid color (eg. Pantone Uncoated, no screen, no cmyk). Usually the printing colors are not opaque, so the cardboard will be 'tinted' not laquered. It's not complicated, but always talk to your printer (the man, not the device) to make sure ...

A bad news If you did not used separated channels for each ink, you need to do it again. If you are using layers you have no real pantone information, you just have a RGB file with colors "simmilar" to a pantone. My workflow I never send the Multichannel, but a composition on a PDF file. The way I prepare is puting a grayscale image, but converted into a ...

It has to do with the size of papers available. There are more cheap print shops/copy shops with capability for smaller paper sizes because there is more demand for it. So if your printer prints on A3 medium then it can be folded into a portrait A4, if cut in half its a landscape A5. Many office level printers can do this but printing on bigger papers ...

It was probably printed in white first and then in black over it. This is usually done to print light colors on dark shirts and still have them appear bright. In case of printing black it's obviously unnecessary.

Here is the dependence that answer your question. Vertical axe is the optimal image resolution and horizontal axe is the distance intended to look on the image. Red curve is for the people with myopia, green is for the people with normal vision and blue is for the hyperopia case. Practically I never used for such big format the resolution more than 72 ppi.

Talk to the printer (the person not the machine). They will likely tell you what scale and/or resolution to work at. You most likely do not need to work at 300ppi at full scale. It is more common for large format printing to work at a smaller scale or lower resolution (refer to point 1.) Read through the answer here: I need to print an image a certain size. ...

Gradients have always been an issue for us on our Rolands. The ripping software just doesn't interpret them correctly. I've found the easiest way around this is to hide your cut line, rasterize your artwork at the resolution and color space of your choice, and show your path again. Now your artwork is a high resolution bitmap under a vector cut line, ...

I already worked with large banners and you should not use Photoshop in this one. If you're going to manipulate photos or images, do it on Photoshop then proceed to work on your banner on Illustrator. If your banner requires a lot of text or reading I recommend InDesign. Large scale prints of photos needs higher definition but you can work between 60dpi and ...

As a quick fix, you can wrap artboards within artboards, take aa look at this example. Here I have a file with 4 artboards (1 hidden off screen that won't be used) I can wrap a larger artboard around these 4, like so: Then when I go to print (cmd + p), I can set the range to only print that final artboard. In my case (6), depending on how close the ...

How best to emphasize a portion of your paper? All printers can easily reproduce grey text. The issue with grey text is that of sufficient contrast to be legible and easily readable. Legibility will be an issue where symbols are used. Mathematic is heavy with problematic situations.Here's where you should look for them Superscripts Subscripts Limits (the ...

Is it OK to use gray font for the parts of math proofs I remove but retain? Not sure how a graphic designer could answer this. If somebody print my PDF, will gray fonts work well with all modern printers? Yes, generally speaking if you have enough contrast a printer will be fine printing gray colors. Also which RGB value do you suggest for "...

Set up your file to scale, maybe 10:1 If possible, use vector graphics and not pixels Use InDesign, or maybe illustrator. Photoshop is not a layout tool. If you must use photography, 72ppi is a good guide for large scale outdoor imagery. Good design beats resolution every time. Print out your design draft, tape it to your wall and stand back to review the ...

You need to profile both. 1) The basic idea is that you buy or rent one hardware like http://www.colormunki.com/ 2) You follow instructions on calibrating your monitor, the hardware analizes patches of color the inner software generates and adjust the output accordingly. 3) You print a sample of color patches provided with the hardware's software, scan ...

Or you could also try using this same method but using a big white transparent stripe instead of ovale. You can also add an outline (a thick one) that would take the very background color.

I would try applying outline to it, for example with the color of the outline in logo above. Try different colors - maybe focus on lighter ones.

Adobe Creative Suite, since it's beginnings, was optimized to integrate InD, AI and PS. When using InDesign, the best way to place images with a transparent background is to simply save your PSD file as a PSD making sure the background is deleted and you see the transparency grid. That's it, no need for a clipping path, or to save as TIFF (it will not work ...
