ON DISC ART
On disc artwork must be to Grafxar’s specifications. Artwork must be accompanied by a chemical or digital proof on how the final discs
and booklet printing is to look. If a proof for on-disc printing is not supplied, the job can not be processed until one is supplied or a letter
authorising the artwork. Please note your spot PMS colours for all non four colour process printing requirements. Impositions for artwork can be
supplied upon request.
A white base is required for all four colour process on disc printing. Please note this on your purchase order, as many times we can’t tell when
looking at your proof as usually proofs are printed on white paper and we print onto a silver surface. Please note that whatever we quote as to
colours on the disc, if you require further colours this will be charged out at $0.05 per colour per disc.
Printing is based upon you supplying us with an electronic file imposed to our specifications, along with a digital proof. Impositions for artwork can
be supplied upon request, or via our Website; www.grafxar.com.au .
Grafxar uses a computer to plate system. If a chemical proof is required, one will be made on your behalf with the cost to do so being
charged to yourselves. Please note that print prices are based on CMYK process for paper parts and special colours like metallic and fluorescent’s
will incur extra costs. If you are using these colours, please note this on your film or the disc supplied as this will help in the turnaround of your
Supplied paper parts must be on appropriate paper weight, stock and dimensions. If not, hand packing would be required and will incur additional
costs. Please ask for our requirements before supplying.
Grafxar does not store paper parts for clients. If a client supplies paper parts to Grafxar as part of their order, any unused parts will be
returned with the completed order. If Grafxar prints paper parts on behalf of the client any unused paper parts will be invoiced and supplied
back with your order. Any paper parts agreed to be stored will be sent back after six months at your cost after consultation with the client.
All jobs that come to Grafxar must be accompanied by at least one of the following, whether for paper parts or disc art - Digital Proof,
Chemical Proof or Laser Prints (not used for colour matching). The reason we request one of the above is so that we have a reference to ensure that
all the fonts and text are there are not corrupt and that all the images appear as they should. The only proofs used for colour matching are high
quality digital proofs (although some colour variance may occur) or chemical proofs. Laser prints are not used for colour matching as all colour
printers vary their output.
If you are unable to provide a digital or chemical proof we can provide a proof for you that is calibrated to our printing presses. If you request this
there will be a small charge. It may also add a couple of extra days to the manufacturing process, as we need to send it to you for sign off and
require it back prior to printing to ensure the colours match. If you request a proof, a colour laser print will still need to be provided for a font and
image reference. If you do not request a proof we will proceed with the job and balance the colours to our own satisfaction, but we will not use
laser prints to colour match.
FILE SET UP
For CD and DVD paper parts, we ask that you supply the files to us as “printer’s pages”, these are pages that are set up as the job is to be printed.
For example, if the job is an eight page stapled booklet then there will be four pages set up in the following way: Pages 8/1, 2/7, 6/3, 4/5. For the
inlay we will require a separate document.
All pages are to be set up to the finished size of the page. Again, for an eight page booklet the size would be 240mm x 120mm with a 3mm bleed
around all outside edges. For the inlay the size will be 150mm x 117.5mm with a 3mm bleed. Please ensure that all images are saved in CMYK and
not RGB or Duo Tones.
