Working methods and definitions in QuarkXpress

The colour definitions should be created with great care. In a process colour job. box Spot Color should not be checked. In spot colour jobs the box should be checked, regardless of which is the colour model for defining the colour.

4 mm trimming edges should be provided in the document. Type 3, TrueType, Multiple Masters and system fonts must not be used. You should also avoid using old type styles, published before the year -91, as their kerning values differ greatly from those of current fonts.

The colour of negative elements should be defined as paper-coloured, as 0% of one of the spot colours may not print correctly due to different overprinting, masking and trapping values. Also hairlines should be avoided; as rule one should not use lines thinner than 0.5 points.

For the print driver we recommend Apple LaserWriter 8.5.1 or later, and the recommended print and file format is PostScript Level 2.
