How do you print your document ? It might be the paper format ? Maybe you can try to save your document in PDF then printing it can help sometime as the printing instructions from acrobat are more easy...

Do some research on the subject and its not that difficult to find this information. You need to get templates for the wraps either from online or a manufacturer. Your design starts with an accurate template of your vehicle — they are available from the manufacturer or online and are essential for creation of your design at the correct size. Most ...

I've heard that if you save your design as PDF, you will create a vector. I've done it before quite a few times, and it works. However, I'm not sure if PDF would be of any use for your purpose. EDIT: Just make sure you save the PDF with the correct colour profile, as this is a very important point to remember when printing something. Some printers (most ...

For type, you really don't convert from raster to vector. In fact, in general, you don't convert from raster to vector. Rather, you redraw it as vector. You can use tools to make this job faster, such as auto-trace tools in programs like Inkscape or Illustrator, but it's still only going to be an approximation and will require hand tweaking. All that said, ...

You don't need to do anything other than ensure the bleeds are set in the Document Set Up and you include bleeds when exporting to PDF. Just place the image (or whatever) across the gutter of the facing pages. When you output facing pages to a standard single page press-ready PDF the bleed will be added to the gutter area. You simply don't see the bleed ...

You need to set DPI after your work si done - when exporting for print: save as copy - pdf - and there is place to set your desired resolution. Don't forget - it applies only for raster images.

Everything you need to set is in the New Document window. This image shows all the correct settings based upon your question:

Ask your printer as Scott mentions what size the barcode needs to be. If its a purely graphical scanner system then you should be able to make it whatever color you want and fairly small. Can you use invisible ink? No you cannot use invisible ink. Barcodes are an optical system. Most have now gone "cheap" using basically 2D image processing to scan the ...

I'll give you some quick answers first, then a description afterwards for you to hopefully help you understand things better! 1) No, you can't use layers with the bitmap colour mode. Use greyscale for your comic. 2) No, use a reputable printer (if you are getting it professionally printed) or you'll just be printing it black only on a laser printer or ...

I think this is more about writing than design. If the word in the header begins a thought or sentence and the body text after it completes that sentence, use a colon. If the header is just a stand-alone headline and the body text a new thought, you don't need a colon. When arriving at a convention, you should: Check in Pick up the welcome ...

a better workflow Instead of going to the trouble of adding a rich black to the logo, make it transparent where it should be black and save in a transparency-supporting file format eg. PSD. use acrobat to review Instead of relying in the InDesign preview, output to PDF and open the Output Preview window (Tools > Print Production > ...). There you will ...

It's an interesting question whose answer goes beyond a yes or no. Actually there is no a convention or a majority position in respect of punctuation in headers. It is common practice in many typographical cultures skip it. I'm not sure what says English typographic tradition, however in this case you must appeal to your judgement and experience, and for a ...

That CMYK code for black is known as True black and is not that black on screen, but different appearances could be caused by the different colour profiles in PS or ID, and of course .pdf export settings, even though you used CMYK. Also, about looking different from different angles.... Is your monitor properly calibrated? Does your monitor have that wide ...

You can try adding a thin stroke to a text in bold typeface (or a thick one to a thin typeface) could do the trick...Note that you should choose the color of the stroke wisely to suit the overall design. using stroke-only for bold or even regular typefaces (with the inside of the typeface transparent to reveal the background image) cutting the text ...

you could try adding a shape behind the text but in front of the image and adjust the opacity level on the shape until you are happy with the image visibility and the text legibility. hope this helps

It is fairly simple. Here are some key points: STEP 1 - I first drew a random 1px line with the pentool. STEP 2 - I used mask and brush tool + soft round brush to fade parts of it slightly. STEP 3 - Then I drew bunch of dots in every corner. They vary in size. STEP 4 - Then I made a brush out of it. STEP 5 - Adjusted the brush settings ...

If you use a commercial printer they will be able to Impose or print multiples on a page, in this case 'cut and stack' see Imposition Types You will then have to ask the printer to be careful so that the order is not compromised. To do this your self manually would entail some tricky maths and rearranging of your pdf.

When printing with process color (CMYK) there is no gray ink. The typical way to achieve it is to use a screen of black (K). A screen is when you print a dot pattern vs. a solid color. The smaller the dots the lighter the 'gray' will appear. The problem is doing this with type. Your printer has a valid concern and your type will likely not come out how ...

Let's add to iconography the obvious integral typographic and color modulations. With the caution that integration adds further complexity! http://generatedcontent.org/post/21279324555/viewportunits.

Some of my templates are set up like this, and I use the exact same setup that Scott described. I really dislike working with Symbols though (the editing interface has room for improvement) so I avoid them when I can. In your case, here is how I would build the template: have a master artboard for the page size then "sub"-artboards for each panel. Then have ...

You can create a 4th artboard which encompasses the other three - then simply print artboard 4 Often, you can set your printer to print multiple pages on one sheet via the print dialog box. With this in mind, if you expect the duplex (2-sided) prints to line up to one another using an end user/home/office printer, you're going to be terribly disappointed. ...

You will not be able to control the output profiles if you don't set them across the creative suite - First check your document colour mode, you will need to set to CMYK. Go to your "Edit' menu and check what colour settings you have - ALSO - Check in EDIT > PREFERENCES > APPEARANCE OF BLACK... make sure you display and export blacks accurately ...

In GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), you can halftone a photo with Filters > Distorts > Newsprint. On deviantART, istarlome provided a tutorial for halftoning in GIMP. Here's the gist: Create an image. Either open an existing photo or create a new canvas and apply a gradient. If the image has fine detail, use Filters > Blur > Gaussian Blur to hide ...

That’s a halftone. Halftone is the reprographic technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size, in shape or in spacing, thus generating a gradient like effect. It can be achieved in Photoshop by choosing Filter → Pixelate → Color Halftone. The example you posted looks like the halftone version of the ...

This is known as a halftone effect. Googling that term will yield lots of tutorials on how to achieve it.

(Caveat: I don't have X4 to test this on, but it does work on X6) Assuming you know how to add page numbering using the macro, try to add that to a new, empty layer. Then hide that layer on the cover and back pages. I think the result will be what you're looking for.

Practically, you will need to print on white paper. And yes, that will take a lot of inkjet ink. Your best option is to take it to a shop. Given the size that you are creating (26.5 in. x 44 in.) it would be ideal to have it printed on a poster-size printer so that you do not need to piece it together. Otherwise, you will get a series of tiled prints that ...

Printing works, generally, with subtractive color. This is to say that pigment that is non-opaque is put on top of the substrate, usually paper, that forms the base color of your print. The pigment then eliminates the reflection of certain colors. This means that your print background has to be white OR it reduces the amount of colors you can use. If you use ...

Dark backgrounds, in print, are typically handled in one of two ways: white paper, black ink (print the background) dark paper, use special opaque inks (print the foreground). Depending on the method of printing, one may be more common than the other. With offset printing or ink-jet, it'd nearly always be option #1. For screen printing, it'd quite often ...
