PRINTING PLATE GUIDELINES
There is no better way to further your brand!
Crayve Presentations has a team of experienced foiling machine operators, allowing our customers to custom brand their packaging products. Our printing method only includes Hot Stamp Foil Printing.
When a customer orders a printing plate, there is a standard fee for a set of plates comprising of approximately 5 different size plates. This may vary depending on your logo and requirements.
1. Adobe Illustrator (.ai) file, with all graphics and text converted to vector format (or curves)
2. EPS (.eps) file, with all graphics and text converted to vector format (or curves)
3. Corel Draw (.cdr) file, with all graphics and text converted to vector format (or curves)
These are the formats that work the best for us to make your plates.
Artwork and Printing Plate Process
Once we receive your artwork:
Please allow 2 to 3 working days for us to send your artwork and order confirmation for the plates.
Once you receive your artwork and order confirmation from Crayve, you must check the artwork carefully.
If you are satisfied with the artwork, you must approve and sign the artwork and the order confirmation.
We will require a 50% to be paid for the plates only, prior to starting with any order.
Please forward the signed artwork and order confirmation together with your proof of deposit back to us via fax (011 466 9774) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Once we receive your confirmation and deposit:
We will submit your plates for manufacture.
The plates will take approximately 5 working days to be manufactured, thereafter we can start your order.
Once we receive the plates, your order will take approximately 4 to 5 working days to print and complete.
For all of the above, should a customer require any minor changes or additional artwork done then we charge at a rate of R250.00 per hour, due to the work involved.
We do not offer a design service, one should utilise the services of a professional graphic designer.
