Proper preparation of artwork is key in ensuring a smooth and efficient processing of your order. 


Important: Despite the care taken by VINYL DE PARIS to check the graphic files and despite the professionalism of its partners and suppliers, it is occasionally possible that slight contrasts and nuances to the desired rendering of products result once the printing of your files is complete. This is sometimes explained by the visual difference of a file on screen and its rendering once printed.

Final artwork files must be submitted in PDF 1.3 setting Acrobat 4 (Minimum) 

- FOGRA39 Color Profile (Without ICC Profile inclusions) / 300DPI with maximum inking of 320%.
