Design a high quality lighting catalog tips
The lighting manufacturers distribute the lighting catalogs to their wholesale sellers. So the lighting catalog is very important for their customers to select the lighting model from the lighting catalog. How can you print a high quality lighting catalog to show your high quality products? Here are some printing tips for reference.
The first, high quality photos and high quality artwork
This is very important. The lighting catalog is for showing each light. To make sure your products are high quality, you should provide high quality photos and high quality artwork. No good original photos, that means no quality catalog. All photos should be 300dpi.
The second, great design
The great design is a high quality catalog guarantee. Design the catalog style to match your lighting products style is a good solution.
The last, don’t design the small black texts with CMYK printing. Offset printing is CMYK printing. If the small texts are CMYK printing, after printing, the black texts look not very clear. In addition, please do the texts with vector file.
Lighting catalog printing and binding tips
The first, to hang the lighting catalog into the binder, many catalogs come with 3-holes drilled or 2-holes drilled. If you design a catalog with 3-holes drilled or 2-holes drilled, make sure the texts and important photos can’t be drilled by holes. At meanwhile, keep more margin on the binding edge. You may think of this point before you design, some issues can be avoided. If you are a new on it, please contact our experts. We can provide free templates. In addition, after you upload printing files to us, our designer will check and adjust for you.
The second, most of the lighting catalogs last for half a year or one year if you are a wholesale seller. We suggest you do lighting catalog with sewn and perfect binding. Because sewn and perfect binding is strong enough.
