COLORS

We use CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) profile for color rendering.
Each color is made from these 4 primary inks.

To ensure a better color rendering, we recommand to convert your file with the CMYK profile ISOnewspaper26v4.
While exporting your PDF file, you can select this CMYK profile.
If you don't care about colors, you don't have to do anything, we have an automatic CMYK conversion tool.

Tips

  • Most colors will be brighter on paper rather than on screen
  • Simple colors are reliable - it's easy to predict how they print.
  • Newsprint is thin, so we can't print a true deep black.

PHOTOS

Photos and artwork choice is important for your newspaper. Newsprint is thin and max ink coverage limited.
For best results choose photographs with enough contrast to make sure they really stand out.
Images with low contrast will miss some details on paper. In particular dark images.

Tips

  • Definition between 150dpi and 300dpi.
  • Choose images with a high contrast.
  • Avoid large areas of flat colour.
  • Make sure that text and details contrast well with the background.

YOU PRINT FOR THE FIRST TIME ?

Digital printing is an industrial process which offers newspapers for an affordable price. It's quick, flexible and reliable.

Digitally printed newspapers are perfect for small and medium runs. Out factory is environment-friendly thanks to the ink and paper we use.
Cette absence de solvant laisse l'encre de migrer dans le papier, offrant un rendu moins vif qu'avec les technologies de rotatives offset réservées à de gros tirages.

Newsprint is a thin paper. The print quality is not as good as other kinds of paper (magazines, for example). Colors don't look as bright and vibrant as they do on screen.

Digital printing uses an inkjet technology. There may be fine lines or stripes visible on your newspaper, these are only noticeable over large areas of flat colour.

Your newspaper will look great if you have these guidelines in mind. We also allows you to get a free sample when creating your account, to see what our newspapers looks like.
