Omnipress Customer Tools

Customer Tools

As you prepare your print files for final production use our tools and guidelines to help ensure a smooth process.

Artwork Guidelines

These guidelines contain information on just about every aspect of content production including fonts, graphics, and proofs for book covers, CDs, brochures, and folders.



  • Compress (zip) all supporting graphics prior to emailing or uploading.
  • All graphics must be high resolution (300-600 dpi).


  • Proofs of your art are supplied in PDF format and are a representation of color separations and text placement.
  • PDF proofs are not a true color representation of the finished product.

File Formats

  • We accept Mac and PC files.
  • We can accept up to the current versions of the following programs: Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Quark Xpress.
  • Include a PDF of your final art file along with the native files.


  • Please compress (zip) and send all fonts to ensure your files print correctly.
  • Sans serif type must be 4 points or larger.
  • Serif type must be 6 points or larger.
  • We recommend printing small text in black.

Design for Computer vs. Print

  • A design viewed on a computer screen is in RGB, a color process only used for monitor display.
  • The RGB process can project colors which are unavailable in CMYK.
  • All RGB files need to be converted to CMYK before submission or results may not reproduce as expected.

Color Printing on CD-ROM Discs

  • A digital disc is made of plastic with metalization added so it has different printing and ink absorption properties than paper.
  • CMYK colors can shift dramatically on a disc label.
  • As a general guideline, flat colors are best produced in spot color (Pantone), photographic images in process color (CMYK), and it is best to avoid using gradients.
  • Gradients on discs typically cause a banding effect. To avoid banding, the gradient must range from 30% to 60%.


Our templates make creating artwork easy. Download the appropriate option and you’re ready to go! Or, if you need some help and guidance, our designers can help.

Using The Templates

  • Keep your artwork on a separate layer from the template.
  • Note the template bleed lines and supply a minimum bleed of 1/8”.
