Q: Are there any issues I should be aware of to avoid disappointment?
A: Digital Print technology is great saving time and money passed on to the customer, but it does have its limitations. Trying to squeeze in too much information in the form of small text should be avoided. As a rule we try to avoid fonts smaller than 8pt. The best fonts for print reproduction are sans serif fonts.
There are many Pantone® colours that cannot be accurately matched using CMYK colours.
If you use a Pantone® colour that cannot be matched it will be converted to the closest CMYK colour available.
If printing on a vinyl other than white, the colour or effect of the vinyl may affect the final printed colour. Some colours such as light reds and oranges can cause a slight "pinking” of the background if it is white.
This is due to the lensing effect and magnification of the resin dome.
Printing a stronger colour or a pale off white for the background can ameliorate this issue.
Adhesive properties: Please always check that the correct grade of adhesive is used to suit your application.
