You can save CMYK files as PDF, so I save them as PDF when I send them out to my print shops? I guess I didn’t notice about not being able to save CYMK files as PNG, sorry! When I post images online, I use RBG files anyway so it never crossed my mind, my apologies.

You can also save them as TIFF files, which are just as good as PDFs or the original PSD file.

Cooper: Yes!! A-ah, I shouldn’t have said that so enthusiastically…. I think Nagisa is cute! He’s not really my type though, his personality is kind of everywhere, and I don’t really care for energetic characters. He’s not a super important character in the show to be honest, sometimes I wonder why he is there because…. -covers mouth- GAH sorry, I wish I could censor myself, this truth serum is making me way too candid!! I like him but he’s not my favorite!! Sorry!!! SORRY!!

This looks like fun, so if you leave “Truth” and a character, I’ll get around to doodle a response.

Yesss just be specific about the character.

I make no promises that I will answer all of these, I’m going to be busy until next week because of con prep aaa xD

Everyone else is doing this, so why not? I’ll do my best!

PRINTING 101 FOR ARTISTS MAKING PRINTS

vythefirst:

ON BEHALF OF MY FRIEND I’M GETTING REALLY ANGRY THAT MISINFORMATION IS BEING SPREAD ABOUT PRINTING AND IT’S RUINING HER PRINTS AND FILES AND DKSJFKLSDJFKS

OK HERE’S THE RUNDOWN

1. SAVE YOUR FILES AS PNG OR PDF.

Do NOT use JPEG FOR THE LIFE OF YOU DON’T DO IT because every time you transfer or resave the files (eg. try uploading it on your printing website) you LOSE DATA. It is a LOSSY FILE FORMAT and every time you resave it pixelates and distorts and blurs your image so please for the love of god don’t use jpeg. I want to list alternate uses but….i really dislike jpeg in general so just don’t use it, it’s awful and it will ruin your images.

PNG and PDF are more reliable because they are not lossy files. They will retain every pixel you drew in that drawing.

Unfortunately, png sometimes doesn’t look good on tumblr and other art websites because the website will resize the image while the image is trying to retain all of the information (which causes it to look too “”“sharp”“” in a way that you can see individual and sometimes “random” pixels in the image. This is a common complaint but for printing it doesn’t matter because you want the best quality picture you can get on the paper. How it looks on paper will be very different from what it looks on the screen. If you’re really worried about that pixel look then I guess you can use jpeg for online but don’t ever use jpeg for printing).

Personally I like using PDF. Even though the file size is bigger, I feel like it’s more universal and printing companies can handle it easily versus image files like PNG. Just my opinion.

2. CONVERT YOUR FILES TO CYMK (if it’s in RBG)

I’ve tried working in CYMK and it’s a pain in the ass, because the colors are completely off from what you want to see on your screen. What I recommend is to work in RBG (Red Blue Green, for the LED lights in your computer screen. Basically it’s calibrated to look good on tv and computer screens, and things that are made of lights behind a glass in general). This will produce the best color combination that you are able to work with without any limitations.

Once you have finished your image in RBG, save a version, and then save a separate version as CYMK (Cyan Yellow Magenta BlacK, ink, calibrated to be read by printers). Make sure to flatten your image before converting so that the colorscheme doesn’t go wack when it changes file type.

It should look mostly like the picture you started with, though you might notice that some saturated blues and violets are looking greyish. That’s normal! Purple and dark blue don’t print well because it takes a sufficient amount of cyan, yellow AND magenta to produce those colors, and it tends to spread out to a greyish color because of the combination. I wouldn’t say avoid those colors altogether, but please be aware that this will happen if you use a sufficient amount of saturated blues and purples. With that being said, if you want a bright blue, instead of using ultramarine blue or some indigo color, try cyan or aquamarine. ;)

3. GENERAL TIP ON FORMATTING BEFORE I FORGET

Make sure to include BLEED. Bleed is a border of extended color from your image so that, in the case that the printer mis-trims the print, there won’t be this awkward white edge. Similarly, if it’s mis-trimmed to be too close to the edge, it won’t cut off part of your main image.

image

I took this straight from CatPrint which I use and I damn love, I def recommend for printing.

Basically, you need to give your printer an 1/8 inch leeway edge for them to cut without killing your image or leaving the awkward white. Sometimes I leave a 1/4 inch bleed for bigger images - you can’t go wrong with more bleed!

Anyway, this is my advice for printing, from my experiences! I made a lot of mistakes before and this is what I learned after a lot of trial, error and research. I would hate for people to make mistakes on the same stuff I did, so here is my contribution!

SO REMEMBER:

  1. PDF OR PNG
  2. CONVERT TO CYMK
  3. REMEMBER TO INCLUDE BLEED

Good luck!!

hmm?? i do all my prints in SAI, just putting in inches and dpi? maybe some vers might not? S: but think it should

yeah, IDK!! A friend of mine who works in SAI mentioned that hers doesn’t do that when I explained the technicalities of it so that’s what I assume is for most versions of SAI, but yeah, I could be wrong!! In general if they can just get a canvas size with the dimensions and dpi, it’s easy and useful, but otherwise they’ll have to do some math/multiplication :’v it’s not that complicated anyway so!!! whatever!!!

printing advice
mewbitch
ask
mewbitch sent: Im new to swelling prints and all but im stuck. i was told that the canvas size needs to be spcific in order for the print to come out all clear and high quality. so my question is what is the best canvas size for a print that will be printed in sizes 8x10, 4x6, and 8x11

When setting up a file, you want to pay attention to the resolution of the canvas, or the DPI (data per inch, pixels per inch, etc etc). DPI determines the canvas size in pixels of your print. My suggestion for printing is to draw on a canvas that is 300 dpi or higher (300 dpi is the standard for printing; any lower is blurry, but the higher the better). If you put your settings in (or resize the image before you start working) the program should configure the canvas size in pixels for you - all you have to do is tell it the dimensions (in inches) and the resolution (dpi).

I heard that SAI doesn’t have that function though. :C Photoshop definitely does, and I can’t think of why mangastudio and other art programs wouldn’t. Here are the sizes you are looking for:

8 x 10 in : 2400 x 3000 px

4 x 6 in : 1200 x 1800 px

8 x 11 in : 2400 x 3300 px

——- I’m assuming you actually mean 8.5 x 11 in : 2550 x 3300 px

I hope you notice that it’s literally a 1 in : 300 px ratio here, so if you need any other dimensions just do the math!

ALSOOO don’t forget to add 1/8 inch of bleed on each side! Good luck!!
