I want to address some issues before actually sending anything for print. Some colegues mentioned them but I want to summarize.
There are several kinds of files.
In this case, is pretty obvious that you are trying to send a working file. You should not. You must prepare an output file. Normally it has some ...
photos exported from Adobe Lightroom with an sRGB colour profile.
sRGB is not CMYK.
Photos should be CMYK to see color more accurately for print production. Chances are if you were to open a photo and merely convert it to CMYK, you'll see the same "dull" blacks. (And you can then adjust the photo for the desired CMYK output.)
What is happening with Proof ...
This is question is not related to Illustrator or Graphic Design in general. It's about how to share large files.
Never ever send giant 2GB messages via email!
Get in touch with your local printer. Most print houses provide a customer online access or a FTP login. This way you will be able to upload your print files directly.
You can also use various ...
Hit Ctrl+A to select everything.
Go to 'Object → Path → Outline stroke' and this will turn your white lines into white objects.
Use the Pathfinder or Shape builder panel to cut out the white bits from the larger black shapes.
Because physical machines doesn't actually works same as softwares
the machine that cuts the vinyl that is being applied on the shirts can't recognize the cutlines on the numbers or something.
it's because machine could've programmed specially for shapes instead of heavy graphics(like who ever will use gradient or such things as cutting since it's ...
For sequential numbering I use InDesign. I used this link to create a master template and setup. Afther that I duplicated the pages Until I reach the quantity needed.Following these steps will save you a lot of time. InDesign will automatically populate the numbers for you if done correctly. In instances where you need to populate two identical numbers side ...
I've found that the easiest way to share large files with clients is by sharing them in a shared google drive. My business email is a gmail account, so if I ever send a document that is too large, it will automatically share it through a shared google drive. This is the best solution I have found, but I am sure there are many ways of sending large files.
As JCW Trees says.
I used to demonstrate the process in a college of printing in the UK, alongside digital proofing (dye-sub), platemaking, digital printing, print finishing... the whole works from origination to a finished product.I really enjoyed that job. Great times.
JCW Trees... You left off the final burn! A final layer or two of the polymer, burnt ...
If they are merely posters, you could absolutely use jpg.
Open the Ai file in Photoshop...
Ensure the size/resolution is correct
Save as (not save for web) JPG quality 12.
Any quality loss due to the jpg format should be very, very, minimal (if any even exists) with a quality setting of 12 - or "maximum".
When the print providers gets it, they will ...
Determine (with print provider) actual needed final resolution for the raster images - export an appropriately-set-up print-ready .pdf. That should do it right there - failing that, use a file-hosting solution or an FTP site (see the print provider's website for how they prefer to handle file transfers) as appropriate.
This isn't really a graphic design ...
Simply set the white to white and print. There's no need to knock out anything, the white essentially creates the knockout. The black will print leaving the white areas blank.
White, for printing, pretty much always means "paper". The only time white may actually mean "print white" is for specific printing processes such as flexography or silkscreen.
Heat reactive foil will stick to most any laser printed image; but, sticks best to black toner which has carbon particles encapsulated by the wax toner.
I would suggest that you print the whole job on the laser printer in colour with the areas you want to foil in black. Tricky registration must be done manually.
Trim the foil carefully to cover the black ...
There are different things to consider:
First the dimensions of the file as you save it. As you are not copy-pasting from AI into Word (which you might consider as well, sometimes these mechanics work pretty nicely) you will have a copy of your exported graphics on the Desktop.
So, if you are sure the file is the correct size and resolution, you need to ...
