Storage of Dies Magnesium Dies need more attention when storing. Ink or foil should be removed, and dies should be washed with soap and water, and completely dried. Be sure to apply a light coating of oil (cooking spray works well) and wrap dies in plastic to keep air out. Overtime Magnesium dies will begin to pit if exposed to air. This pitting WILL affect the image of the plate. Computer files Computer file preparation is a key component in production. Be sure to convert all fonts to artwork. Example Adobe illustrator allows for fonts to be converted to outlines. This measure assures you that we are not missing any fonts, or that any font substitutions have occurred. When possible, convert all colors to 100% black and white. Be sure all artwork is actual size. If not, communicate the final size requirements of your project. PDF files or EPS files are your best options when sending files to ensure accuracy. When sending film negatives for stamping dies make sure your negative is right reading emulsion side up. COMMUNICATION The most important tip with any job is communication. Communication will allow us to meet your deadline and provide you with the best quality product, in the most cost effective manner. The confidence and quality that you will receive from allowing us to work with you are contagious.
