FEY PrePress Checklist

For trouble-free printing, we recommend following the prepress guidelines below before uploading your project to FEY Printing

  • Create a color proof to check for color quality, spelling and layout.
  • Extend bleed artwork to bleed lines
  • Ensure that important content is within safety margins
  • Check and edit colors
  • Ensure that process colors are CMYK (not RGB)
  • Check that spot colors are converted to CMYK. Define any spot colors.
  • Remove unused color swatches
  • Check and edit fonts
  • Ensure that there are no missing or inactive fonts
  • Check that fonts are styled in their "true" form (in other words, unaltered by artificial "bold" or "italics" options in the application)
  • Ensure that linked graphics are up to date
  • Delete unused elements, elements on the pasteboard, and empty boxes
  • Check layers
  • Make sure that the template layer only contains template elements
