What is the difference between design and layout formatting?

What is the difference between digital and offset printing?

Digital printing – the most modern printing method that allows to print small editions of print within a very short time. The data is sent to the printing device without the transitional operations, the image is created from the digital description.

Compared to the offset printing this way of printing is much simpler, because there is no need to make photo-forms, printing forms, and specially prepared machines. Digital printing is intended to print small editions - even of one unit. Therefore you can print what You need and when You need it.

Advantages of a digital printing:
  • Quick and quality printing, the products can be collected within very short time.
  • Possibility to choose the desired quantity of the edition and to make a test product.
  • Competitive price when producing large as well as small editions.
  • Possibilities of personalised printing. Each printout can be different while paying the same price.

Offset printing- one of the most popular technologies used in the industry of polygraphy, intended to print large editions.

Advantages of offset printing: the larger the edition, the lower the price of the unit. Convenient way to print different polygraphy products with most diverse editions.

Offset printing Best when printing large editions. The larger the edition, the smaller the price of the unit. Printing of the products may take up to several days. When using CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, key) colour system, the complete colour palette and half-tones are obtained. Preparation of the model for printing, splitting of colours and preparation of photo films, preparation of printing presses, printing. Digital printing Most suitable to print small editions. The products can be delivered within one working day. The preparation of model for the printing is very simple (even programs used at the offices: "Word", "Exel", etc. will do), there is no need for the high costs for design. Publications of many pages, but small edition can be printed in a digital way (product catalogues, price lists, fiction literature works)

What affects the order completion time?

Work completion time depends on the design and a need for layout formation: if you already have a created model, it would only take to prepare it for printing. If you do not have a design the creative process can take up to several weeks – depending on Your wishes and complexity of the product.

Production time also depends on the type of printing and complexity of the order: if printing digitally the order can be completed even within a day, depending on the workload of the production department. If printing by other methods or if the order is very complex and requires a lot of post-printing works (e. g., lacquering, laminating, folding, binding, stitching, etc.), the production can take longer.

What are the time frame for production?
Production time for the standard orders is 3-5 working days. The product of the digital printing can be collected even the same day, depending on the workload of production. Deadlines of large orders are coordinated in each case individually.
Why is laminating and/ or lacquering useful?
Lamination creates a nicer appearance of the product and protects it from external effects, the product becomes sturdier. UV lacquering is intended to highlight the decorative effects and increase the resistance to the external factors. Lacquering is classified into complete and partial. Partial lacquering is used to emphasize the contrast of the non-lacquered surface in order to provide special effect of the three dimensional image.

Make sure that you are sending to us the file with the CMYK colour model. When converting the file from RGB, PMS or other colour model, the colours change, other visible changes can appear as well, therefore you will get the closest image to the one in the press when preparing and submitting the files with theCMYK CMYK colour model.. If you are preparing the model on your own computer, but are not sure about the recreation of colours in reality, you can do digital or offset proof.
What are non-attached fonts, what would happen if my file contains them and how it should be avoided?
Before printing, the employees always check, if the files are prepared for printing properly. If the discrepancies of the fonts are noticed, the customer is informed and is asked to send over new files. No grammatical mistakes must be left in the PDF files. Employees of the "GSP" printing house do not check the texts and are not responsible for the grammatical mistakes that are left.
What are cropping lines?
Trim line is the place at which your product is cut. After the bleeds are removed, the final product, outlined by the trimming line, remains.
What is a safe area?
Safe area includes all essential elements of the work (text, images, and graphics), these cannot be closer than 3-5 mm to the cropping line.
What are overlays?
Overlays are the part of the model, it will be cut off during the final operations of production. It is important that there were no important objects or text in this part of the model, continuous backgrounds or other graphical objects must be extended throughout the whole width of the overlap (3 mm).
What is the size of the overlay in the document?
Standard size of the overlays is 3mm from all sides.
How to prepare the file with overlays?
When laying out the file of any format, add 3 mm to the final required size. Do not forget that overlays are mandatory for files of any size.
Is my file prepared for printing truly properly?
Before transferring files for printing they are inspected again at the Vilnius branch of the printing house. If discrepancies are found within the files, and they can affect the quality of the printing, the printing house employees notify the clients about that and provide the instructions on what has to be corrected.
When does the production of the product commence?
After the order and the confirmation of files the work is transferred for printing. At this point the project will be performed as it was confirmed in the written agreement.
When and how the files should be confirmed?

When checking the file see: if the file that you are reviewing is exactly that (name must match the number of the order)? if there are grammatical mistakes? if the page number sequence is correct? if the text is within the boundaries of the safe zone (whether they are too close to the cropping lines)? if the pictures are in the correct position? if the final format is correct? if the folding lines are marked in the correct place?
What should I do if I found an error in the raster image processor file?
Before confirming the file, we recommend to thoroughly review and check the arrangement of the pages, design elements and text.
