Things that CAN go wrong DO go wrong - These are things you can do (or NOT do) to ensure your print project is perfectly executed

Ink Coverage

The paper stock you select will have a major impact on the colors and look/feel of your printed piece - as will the amount of ink laid down on it.Heavy ink coverage on gloss paper or an incorrect amount of ink coverage for a specific paper (more than 240 Total Ink Coverage for uncoated light-weight text stocks, 280-300 for heavier stocks) will impact your print in many ways. Too much ink may leave your document more sensitive to scuffing and scratching if it is not coated or laminated. It may cause smudging and other artifacts if the ink does not dry sufficiently between colors or after printing may require more drying time.

No Bleed

Because of the inaccuracies in the finishing processes, images need to extend (or“Bleed”) beyond the borders of your page. Not having bleed may result in the page being trimmed leaving a sliver of white (no ink) paper around your document. Bleed prevents this from happening.

Low Res Images

Pulling an image off the internet may be tempting to do but think of this: Hi-end presses print at a resolution of 300 DPI (on average). Internet images are around 72 DPI (typical screen image resolution). Printing that image on a hi-end press will result in pixelization and generally a poor looking document.
