Our tutorial page
Who knows us, knows that a large part of our daily work also includes the documentation and knowledge preparation for complex design and mostly highly refined print jobs in the form of technical tutorials. We do this primarily for our customers in order to explain the design and production process in a comprehensible way, especially for new materials and technologies, and to make it reproducible for their customers.
Due to the novelty of many materials and technologies, which we are usually the first to work with in the realisation of these sample packaging and printing jobs, over the years we have gained comprehensive knowledge on a wide range of design, pre-press and printing topics, but also on web design, app development, augmented and virtual reality and much more from our daily work, which we do not want to withhold from you.
On this page, we would like to present our tutorials on all topics that seem important to us at the moment and on which we would like to share our knowledge, tips, tricks and sometimes even hacks from the last 35 years with you in a detailed and understandable way. We hope that this will make your daily work a little easier.
So please take a look at this page from time to time. It could be worth your while.
Tutorial Nr. 1
Creating colour separations from PDF
Our first tutorial is dedicated to a problem that has often been brought to our attention and for which we have a fairly simple solution. How do you export the individual colour separations from a print file so that you can then use them, for example, to create a tutorial, for documentation or for further high-quality needs?
Tutorial Nr. 2
Calculation of area coverage and consumption quantities in print
Our second tutorial follows on seamlessly from our first tutorial and this time, as already announced, explains how you can also determine the job-specific area coverage per colour channel and use it to calculate the expected consumption quantities of inks and coatings by the use of a simple process and based on the high-quality colour separations from the first tutorial.
Tutorial Nr. 3
The Ultimate Drip-off/UV/hybrid/TWIN Coating Effect Tutorial
In our third tutorial we would like to take a closer look at one of our favourite coating effects. We are talking about so-called Drip-off/UV/hybrid/TWIN coating effects, which offer an enormous range of possibilities at a moderate cost if the job is planned correctly and implemented with printing alchemy.
