What are file requirements to upload - Desk Calendar
How to prepare your files to order Desk Calendar?
For best results, please follow our guidelines when you are uploading your own artwork.
Not following the any of these requirements would be the reasons why unexpected errors are occurring, and Aladdinprintphil.com has no responsibility for that.
1. ARTWORK DIMENSIONS
Please create a document size (bleed size) when you upload your file. To avoid file size errors, please download our templates.
Document Size (Bleed Size) - Blue line
9" x 6" mm (Landscape) / 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" mm (Portrait) / / Resolution 300 dpi
2. BLEED SETUP
It is very difficult to print exactly to the edge of a sheet of paper/card, to achieve this it is necessary to print a slightly larger area than is needed and then trim the paper/card down to the required finished size. Images, background images and fills which are intended to extend to the edge of the page must be extended beyond the trim line to give a bleed.
Bleeds to order our Desk Calendar basically are 1mm on each side from where the cut is to be made.
3. SAFE AREA
You will want to make sure all text and graphics that are not intended to be cut off are within the safe zone. The safe zone is an area that is a safe distance away from the trim line where the cut will take place. Text and graphics within the safe zone are guaranteed to not be cut off.
Text and graphics should be at least 1.5 mm on each side from the trim line(cut line).
Safe Area (Text & Graphic safe zone) - Green line ( )

5. ARTWORK ARRANGEMENT
You should arrange your artworks front and back in one file like below.
6. Number of versions

The following instructions will help you create a print-ready file. If after reading them you are still unsure about anything, please visit to get more informations the Artwork Guides section of our website, request a professional File Check or contact customer services at email@example.com
1. FILE FORMATS
Your file these formats in 1:1 scale (not password protected).
2. COLORS (CMYK VS RGB)
All files must be created in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). Images in RGB or in PANTONE colors which must be converted to CMYK.
Aladdinprintphil does not guarantee color will match the preview on customer's monitor, as we cannot compensate for the color variance on each customer's monitor set-up.
The color you see in your monitor is in RGB Color scheme which consists of three colors; Red, Green and Blue. These are the primary colors of light, which computer monitors use to display images on your screen.
The color to be printed on your business card is in CMYK color scheme, which consists of four colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. In full-color process printing, CMYK is the standard method of offset printing.
Therefore, the printed color will never perfectly match the on-screen color. Colors vary from monitor to monitor, and different printers produce different color results.
