WHAT ARE HIGH ENERGY VEHICLE MAGNETS?

You’ve probably seen them everywhere; on the local electrician’s van door, and perhaps the maid service that comes in to clean your office once each week. Car magnets are everywhere, spreading the name and purpose of small to medium businesses reputably as they dart from one end of town to another. One of the most cost effective types of advertising, these portable signs allow you to advertise your local business across larger distances without paying the high and recurring fees. 

Car and Vehicle magnets increase your exposure and have proven to be one of the most cost effective forms of advertising. You could make thousands of impressions every time you drive your vehicle with magnetic signs attached. 


Vehicle magnets are simple to remove and quick to apply.

Need to stop in for a car wash? Well, if you have a vinyl wrap on your vehicle, you better get out the bucket and scrubber, because a machine car wash will damage your graphics.

With a magnetic sign on the other hand, you’ll be able to pull your graphics off in a single motion. Reapplication consists of brushing dust off the surface of the magnet, and placing it back on the vehicle. Such flexibility allows for greater longevity as well; signs can be stored away for harmful UV rays when not in use.


High Energy Vehicle Magnets

High energy magnets are very thin but act like a thick one and stay on at highway speeds! Our highest quality magnetic signs provide a temporary or permanent solution for vehicle identification. These signs are made of durable magnetic sign sheeting guaranteed to not blow off of your auto and not crack or become brittle in the elements.

Trusted Regina Printer Future Print shares a tip on how to save your design files to make them print ready.

How to save your design files to make them print ready.

All print designers are familiar with deadlines and the havoc they can often wreak on your life! It is incredibly frustrating to spend hours and hours designing your work, only to send it to the printers and get back something far from what you had envisioned. These last-minute problems do more than increase your stress levels and blood pressure, they’re actually hugely damaging to your productivity. Especially if you’re a self-employed freelancer, you know that can spell very real problems for your bottom line.


So in order to smoothly transition from the design stage to printing, what processes should you put in place to avoid expensive (both in terms of finances and sanity) mistakes? It’s essential that you thoroughly proof your documents before going to the printers. Everything needs to be perfect, saving you time, money, and reputation. Here are some simple guidelines to follow:


Make them print ready. 

PDF files are preferred.

INDESIGN & ILLUSTRATOR:

• Embed all Images

• Convert all your text to outline fonts or curves

• Save as an EPS or PDF

• Include bleed and crop marks if possible


QUARK & PAGEMAKER:

• Embed all Images

• Convert all your text to outline fonts or curves if possible

• Export your file as an EPS or PDF

• Include bleed and crop marks if possible


PUBLISHER & WORD:

You will need to have the full version of Adobe Acrobat PDF. If you do have the full version of Adobe Acrobat PDF please follow the steps below.

Under File, Print, select Adobe PDF writer

Under Properties select Press Quality and Save your PDF


Print size matters.

One of the most common mistakes made when printing is sending a document that is too small, which, if not corrected before the final run, can result in a printout that is fuzzy and lacking in clarity due to a lack of resolution. It’s imperative that you create your document the same size as it will be printed in order to avoid this embarrassing end result. Designing at actual size reduces the margin for error with graphics, fonts and layout once printed. Without taking adequate precaution, you’ll soon find that something that looks great on your screen soon turns into a design disaster when printed in the large format for which it was intended.


Proof your document.

What is a "proof"?

A proof is a way of ensuring that we have set your type accurately and that everything is positioned according to your requirements. Typically, we will produce a proof which will be sent to you online, faxed or printed on paper which can be viewed in our store or delivered to you in person.

On multiple color jobs, we can produce a color proof on our color output device to show how the different colors will appear.

Our Trusted Regina printer Future Print answers questions about printing with colors.

Using a printer for the first time can lead to lots of questions Future Print Regina is here to help you with all of your printing needs.  it is important to understand the science behind color creation and printing techniques, so you can make educated decisions about how to produce the best images for every project.

Here are some frequently asked questions about professional printing with colors.  


Is white considered a printing color?
Not typically. Because white is the default color of paper, it is simply recognized as the absence of any ink. However, when using colored paper, white ink may be used if any text or graphic requires it.

Why do the printed colors look different from the colors on my screen?


In short, printers and monitors produce colors in different ways.

Monitors use the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which usually supports a wider spectrum of colors. Printers use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color model, which can reproduce most—but not all—of the colors in the RGB color model. Depending on the equipment used, CMYK generally matches 85–90% of the colors in the RGB model.

When a color is selected from the RGB model that is out of the range of the CMYK model, the application chooses what it thinks is the closest color that will match. Programs like Adobe Photoshop will allow you to choose which color will be replaced. Others may not.



How should I save my files to get the best color quality?
You should save all photos in CMYK mode, not RGB mode when possible. Images saved in RGB mode may not print properly. If you are unable to save your image in CYMK mode, please let us know.

What if I don't like the colors when they are printed?

Always ask for a proof.  A proof is a way of ensuring that we have set your type accurately and that everything is positioned according to your requirements. Typically, we will produce a proof which will be sent to you online, faxed or printed on paper which can be viewed in our store or delivered to you in person.

On multiple color jobs, we can produce a color proof on our color output device to show how the different colors will appear.

What is the Pantone Matching System?

The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a color reproduction standard in which colors all across the spectrum are each identified by a unique, independent number. The use of PMS allows us to precisely match colors and maintain color consistency throughout the printing process.
