The way you need to set up your artwork for printing is basically the same, irrespective of whether you are preparing artwork for a business card, leaflet or packaging etc.

Please see the followng examples of how to provide a PDF file with Bleed and Crop Marks correctly...

Stacks Image 9598
This PDF would not be correct - as it has no crop marks and no bleed.
Note: If your artwork has nothing that goes to the very edge - then it would be OK to provide a PDF like this!
Stacks Image 9604
This PDF would not be correct - as it has no bleed and the crop marks are right up against the corners of the artwork
Stacks Image 9611
This PDF would not be correct - the crop marks are now correctly offset from the artwork, but there is still no bleed.
Stacks Image 9618
This PDF is now correct - the crop marks are now correctly offset from the artwork and bleed has been added.
Generally, unless you have been instructed otherwise - please add 3mm of bleed and offset the crop marks by the same amount.
Note: not all software gives you the option to specify how much to offset the crop marks. In this instance just ensure they look 'visually' correct.

Pantone & Spot Colours

One of Fineprint's strengths is that we can print Pantone colours, also known as Spot Colours.
Stacks Image 9672
Pantone colours are commonly used where a company's branding needs printing accurately time and time again. For example the Cadbury's well known Purple Colours used on most of their chocolate bars. The retail shop 'Boot's' is also a well known brand that uses a Spot Colour Blue in its branding, packaging and signage.
Pantone colours can be used alongside CMYK colours or by themselves. Within the range are a vast number of colours that are more vibrant than CMYK colours, including fluorescent colours and gold & silver metallic colours.
For more information please take a look at The official Pantone Colours Website.
