Pacom’s Color Management System (CMS)
Pacom has established a set of guidelines to help you in editing a print project.
Please check these instructions, as well as the InDesign user instructions, as you proceed with your project.
Things to Consider when Editing
- Do not use lines thinner than 0.5 pt, as thinner lines will not appear when put in print.
- We recommend using two colors at most for lines. (3- or 4-color lines can have alterations in color)
- Lines, fonts and objects using white should not be overprinted.
- For twin-ring binding products, edits should be done on single pages, not spread pages.
- Please send any fonts used in editing so that they can be used when printing.
- If using spot color in Quark or InDesign, please use primary colors for all other colors.
- When editing in Quark or InDesign, please leave at least 3mm in margins.
- Please do not use fonts which have a city (Seoul, Chicago, New York, etc.) in their title.
- All image files should be done via Adobe RGB (for RGB), or Coated FOGRA39 or Coated GRACoL2006 (for CMYK).
- sRGB is not compatible with international print color standards, and thus is not suited for use in print sources. AdobeRGB is the international standard for print RGB sources.
- Image files have a base of 300dpi.
- Please save image files with a Profile Tag.
- If converting to PDF, when saving file as PDF X/1a or PDF X/3, designate output intent as either Fogra39 or GRACoL2006.
- Page size will become Trim Box after PDF conversion, and will be the final book size.
We recommend saving image files (both RGB and CMYK) in the Tiff format (using LZW compression) to enhance print quality.
(JPEG compression can alter the image and is not recommended)
he total CMYK should not surpass 350%. Going over 350% increases the ink levels to a point where print quality may suffer,
and the end product may encounter problems in later production stages (cutting, binding).
InDesign Configuration (when using coated white paper)
After calibrating the workspace with Adobe RGB and GRACoL2006, the colors will be shown on screen to this standard.
When loading an image, if there is no tagged profile or a color other than the Adobe RGB or GRACoL2006 is tagged, a warning popup will appear.
- When a color other than an AdobeRGB or GRACoL2006 profile is tagged
- Select either “change to color space” or “keep profile”.
- If no profile is tagged
- Consult with the photographer or image creator to identify the profile used when creating the image, and apply it.
How to Create a PDF
- Creating a PDF in InDesign
- Go to [File], then [PDF preconfigurations] and select [High Quality Print].
- Save the PDFs to a desired location.
- Select the desired page and PDF version.
- Downsample (The PDF size is too large without downsampling).
- Mark the cut lines and page information.
- Convert the profile of the image file to PDF without color conversion.
- Go into the ink manager and change the spot color file into a 4-color primary color file.
- Uncheck anything that requires a spot color.
- Switch resolution to high.
- Use an easily remembered name to save the file. (Doing this allows for easier creation of further PDF files)
- Uncheck anything that requires a spot color.
