Colour:
Printing uses a CMYK colour format (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). The colours on your screen are RGB colours (Red, Green, Blue). Some RGB colours that appear on your screen can not be printed in CMYK. You must be careful when selecting colours on your printing, as some colours will print “dull” when compared to your computer screen.

 

See how the two colour formats compare below, you’ll see that the CMYK versions of some RGB colours are duller and appear washed out.

Bleed:
Please include 2mm bleed and also ensure that no part of the printed job is within 5mm of the edge of the page or ‘in the safe zone’.
