What is Perforation… Allows you to create Stubs

The type of prints in which you can perforate, range from response cards, coupons, tickets, or customer feedback form.  Perforation is the small cuts that ca be found mainly in tickets or coupons within the paper that allow you to rip the paper where the perforation(cuts) are found.

Choosing from a wide variety of perforating blades gives you flexibility when designing pieces that need to separate effortlessly. With a precise measurement and angle. Custom perforated cards have a unique psychological ‘edge’ in that they encourage physical action by the recipient. Perforations impart a ‘functional feel’ to the cards and the detached portion gives the impression of having more usefulness. It is not just about perforating, it is about giving your cards exactly what they need to be customized in every way.

Direct to Garment printing also known as DTG printing, digital garment printing and ink jet to garment printing, is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified ink-jet technology. The  specialty inks (ink jet textile inks) that are applied to the textile(shirts, hats, pants, aprons, bags, and more) directly and are absorbed by the garment fibers. Most direct to garment printers are manufactured from pre-existing Epson ink jet printers, with exceptions where DTG printers have been built using lower-resolution industrial ink-jet print heads like those found in large-format printers used to print signs and banners. Direct to garment printers boast the largest print area and lowest ink cost of any tabletop inkjet to garment printer.

DTG printing can be very durable if properly cared for. Normally, washing instructions state “Wash inside-out in cold water.” Even without proper care, printed designs can remain discernible after many washes. Direct to garment printing can be as durable as screen printing

Direct to garment printing has become popular because it is almost 100% Eco-friendly.  While screen printing and other methods often use synthetic plastisol-based inks, DTG printers use environmentally-friendly, water-based inks, with the exception of certain mild solvent based and discharge inks used on a small percentage of printers.

What is Bleed in Printing Terms

Have you ever asked yourself what is a bleed?, Full bleed? and what it’s purpose is? A bleed is 1/8 of an inch from where the cut is to be made. The purpose of a bleed is to avoid having a border or to avoid having white spaces or empty space.  When we cut your business card without a bleed you run the risk th paper shifting and showing some empoty space, the bleed basicly extends your art past the standard size and allows for any shifting to take palce without showing any white or blank space.  A full bleed is when an image extends past the edge of the print size and then is cut to the exact size.  In order to not have a white border on the business card, post card, or  what your print product is, you need to bleed (extend) your art background  by adding 0.1″ or 0.125 to the dimensions of your design BUT KEEPING ALL YOUR ARTWORK WITHIN THE EXACT SIZE.  Example: a 5″ x 7″ postcard being printed with us at NYC printing 123 would have a bleed size of 5.1″ x 7.1″ and a 8.5″x11″ flyer would have a bleed size of 8.625″x11.125″.  *REMEMBER: ONLY THE BACKGROUND IS EXTENDED IN BLEEDS.

The graphics file format used by the PostScript language, EPS is also known as “encapsulated post script,” and the file names end in .eps.
  • JPEG is an image file format used on the Web. Unlike GIF files, now some data will be lost in a JPEG-compressed file.
