Proper Online Printing Design Habits
by: Janice Jenkins

When you plan on doing online printing for your materials, there are a few things you must take in consideration and probably change in your design habits. Keep in mind that since there will not be real physical or face to face contact with the printing company, you must practice proper online printing design habits to prevent any misunderstandings or mistakes that might happen.

Luckily for you, I have here just the guide for people who want to do their online printing correctly. Below are a few proper design habits that are ideal when working with an online printing company.

1. Use their layouts or templates when possible. One of the best habits you can adapt when working with an online printing company is to use their printing templates. Usually most online printers provide their customers with printing templates that have been already set for their printing process. This makes the whole printing process easier since the dimensions and other settings are standardized. You just need to add your design to the template and printing should happen quite easily. So check if your printing company has free printing templates you can download.

2. Always use high resolution images. Another important habit for online printing is to use high resolution images in all prints. With the online environment as open as it is, it is hard to refrain from using low resolution web images for your designs. However, you must always avoid this temptation and use only high resolution images. Only high resolution images will come out clear and right when you put it through the online printing process. So if you really want professional looking prints, you got to use high-res images.

3. Check your content and design thoroughly. It is also an important habit to always check your content and design thoroughly. Since you will be doing all your transactions online, you should always be sure that your content and design are spotless when you send it over to the online printing company. There is no turning back once you send your designs, so make sure you check everything. Try to check your designs three times if you can, with the other two times done by other people. This should help you maintain good quality prints for online printing.

4. Send out the document file as well as an image file. Now, when you are sending your designs for printing, it is good practice to always send your document draft file and an image file as backup. The document file should be the base file from your desktop publishing application such as Microsoft Publisher, Adobe InDesign or even Adobe Photoshop. This is the prime document that online printers want to use since they can still edit certain elements before printing. The image format can serve as a good backup just in case the document file gets messed up or corrupted.

With the above-mentioned good habits necessary for online printing, you should have little trouble with your online prints.
