Design Restrictions  

  1. We will be doing the manual printing. The process is similar to screen printing with slower speed and better print quality.
  1. Photographs and gradients can't be printed.
  1. Clip arts, doodles, illustrations in which lines are not close to each other, texts etc can be printed.
  1. Use fonts which are clearly visible. Don't use small fonts. - Anything smaller than 8 font size of Helvetica.
  1. Use a maximum of three Colors on one page. Lesser the color, better the design will look.
  1. The logo should be of a single color only. In case there are more than one color, consistency won't be there in the printing of logo due to registration issues.
  1. Every print will be different from the other as the paper is textured and seeds are invariably embedded inside the paper. 
  1. Avoid thin lines or thin clip art.
  1. Avoid boundaries on the edges of the design. 
  1. Please don't use Photoshop to design the artwork. The screen that we make gets pixelated. Use AI or Coral Draw. 
  1. Send file in PDF or coral draw format. Convert it into a curve file before saving so that fonts don't get changed when you share it with us.
  1. If possible send us the color separated file along with the final design.
