2What is “Colour Mode” and how do I convert my document to “CMYK”?
Colour Mode is the values used to create the colours you see. Computer monitors display colors in light values or RGB (Red, Green & Blue) colour mode. Printers print in ink values or CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black) colour mode.
Most frequently, documents will be defaulted to set up using RGB color space. When creating a layout for print, your color mode should always be set to CMYK. If a file is sent to a printer in RGB mode, the colour will be converted by the print driver giving a less predictable colour appearance.
3What are “bleeds” and text safe area?
Bleeds are the portion of your document that extend past the borders of your page. The purpose of bleeding your document is to ensure background color and images print to the edge of your paper without leaving an unprinted sliver on the edge when cut to size.
