  1. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  2. Does Publisher guarantee that the files will be Print Ready / Flightchecked / Approved facility? When I use InDesign I can Flightcheck my work to see if there are any errors before sending to commercial printing factory. For example: I may have accidentally added a few RGB photos in among the CYMK photos linked Or there may be an ink knockout or overprint problem. Or I may have spot colours among my CYMK colours. Or a Typeface may have been corrupted Or text overflow not showing
  3. I would have expected that the n-up details for printing a document would have been saved in the document for repeated use. When the document is opened again, the print profile defaults to 1-up, so all the details have to be re-input each time a print is required. For a document that is a label, for now, I have to have a side-document (a screen-shot) showing the n-up details for reference. Surely such detail should be stored with the document.
  4. I am creating stickers to make a few product samples. I will print on transparent adhesive foils, cut the stickers out and stick them on the boxes. 2 stickers fit on one A4 page, so I created a file with two artboards. When printing, I select "whole document", which seems to produce what I need. But it does not create the cut marks corresponding to the artboards. Instead, it only prints cut marks at the circumference of both items, but not for each of the artboards. This does not make sense to me, because, given I choose to print all artboards and to print cut marks, I would assume that cut marks are printed for each artboard. Analogously to properties like bleeding that are specified for each artboard, I would assume that each artboard also has its cut marks. Attached is a screenshot of the print preview, showing the black cut marks. In red, I sketched the missing cut marks that I need.
  5. I have no problem printing o edge in Apple Pages on my Epson 900 by choosing 'page setup' - A4 borderless, then choosing borderless in the print dialogue box. Don't have these options in Affinity designer. Tried all sorts including increasing page size by 3mm all round. (3mm coz that is the white border that I continually get when printing) Amazingly cannot find this question being asked (in many forms) - makes me feel stupid!
  6. I am using Designer to make assets for a board game, and the slice tool is really great for separating into the digital vs print needs. However, when I open them to print, it's made assumptions about the scaling. I'm exporting at 300dpi because that's the print size but most are scaling them to fit. If I manually export, I can set the scaling and paper size. Is there any way for me to change these settings upon batch export? If not, does anyone have any workflow suggestions to do this? I can't be the only one with this problem.
  7. I have an imaginary, but not uncommon situation. I need to prepare and output a 5 color print job for the print shop. CMYK + Pantone. Currently, while working in a CMYK document, when I select and use a Pantone color in the document, Photo separates the Pantone into the CMYK Composite Color channels. This is wrong. It would be correct and intuitive if Photo automatically recognized, that a Pantone color had been used, and created a new separate 5th channel - Composite Pantone channel. I would like to suggest this as a feature. I'm aware of the Honor Spot colors in the PDF output options. I'm not sure what it does. And I'm not sure at all if the document will image correctly to PDF for a Print Shop.
  8. I want print with "scale 100%" in I have it chosen in print options. But always the programms (Designer + Publisher beta) optimize and centralisize the content. So the margins of the paper are no more good. I have success with export in pdf. But it's laborious. Is there a possibility to print exactly 100% with my original margins directly from the Affinity-programms?
  9. Hi - I've been a print designer for a long time and still do the occasional print piece.. I understand that Affinity/Serif don't plan to create an Acrobat competitor however the thought occurred to me that perhaps a prepress module could be incorporated to Publisher either as a persona or menu option? The only reason I still sub adobe is for Acrobat so that I can proof my print files. I also understand that there are prepress alternatives out there but they are industrial strength and are cost prohibitive! Would love to hear your thoughts.. Cheers
  10. Hello all, please I have problem with bleed, specialy print crop marks in export to PDF. I have document (business card) and size of document is bigger in every size by +3mm. For PDF export I need put into this document crop marks with bleed 3mm ( this crop marks go -3mm to the documet) and give me pure bussiness card size. If I set in >docoment setup "bleed" to 3mm, in export I have set "include bleed and include crop marks", after export pdf with this settings NOTHING HAPPEND = crop marks are always in maximum document size not -3mm inside document. (I try put against 3mm / -3mm / and diferent numbers...nothing happend). Please help!!! Im mad, because in PS it was 2 click in PDF export and it was done, here I cant handle it easy way. TY for your help
  11. Hi everyone, I hope you guys are doing good. I recently purchased Affinity designer and make a shift from Inkscape because of the printing issues. I had printed 700 pamphlets and they all had colors issues for some reason. Which was a total waste and I had to make a change in software which I was wishing for a long time. The reason for posting on this forum is that I really want to know the best practices for printing in affinity designer. Now, I have a few questions, I started my affinity document with the Print (Press ready), 300 dpi and everything needed. When I imported an eps file from Inkscape just to take inspiration from it and redesign the pamphlet in affinity, I got a notification that the colors have been changed to RBG for that eps, did that change it for both the affinity document and the eps file I imported from Inkscape? Another question, I imported a png image to use it in my design. Since I am a newbie, I wanted to ask would that also cause issues in printing? I know I am not making sense but I would be thankful if you guys can help me out. Thank you!
  12. Bonjour Affinity team, quand j'ai imprimé mon affiche exportée en pdf en A3, j'ai remarqué des différences de couleur (jaune) dans les boîtes de texte du titre par rapport au fond jaune... et parfois des boîtes d'images qui débordent après exportation. Hello Affinity team, when I printed my poster exported in pdf in A3, I noticed color differences (yellow) in the text boxes of the title compared to the yellow background ... and sometimes boxes of images that overflow after export. Et pour le 2e document pareil, des débordements et des différences de boîtes après exportation... anotaru3_2019OK.afpub ANciens_DÉBOUCHÉS_PO2019.afpub
  13. Hi, I recently switched from Adobe Illustrator to AD and so far loving it. However, I need to export a design/file with gradient letters for printing, vector quality. Thing is that if I export it with gradient, the result gets blurry and no longer vector. If I do not use gradient all goes well and its vector sharp. I suppose as a newby to AD I have some settings for export wrong. What can I do to export to pdf for professional print and keep the gradient and keep the vector quality please? Thanks, Annie
  14. I'e set up a document wich should have bleed/crop marks on every edge with 3mm inset. If I export that as pdf and include the marks, only the top and bottom marks are placed correctly. The left and right are placed exactly where the document ends, but they should be inset my 3mm. If I set the bleed marks to 6mm, they same happens. Top and bottom marks are set correctly, left and right are not inset at all. (see screenshots) This bug happens on new documents, two different macs and even on iPad. The same behavior is for Affinity photo and Affinity Publisher beta.
  15. Greetings, Just installed a new printer (Epson XP55), calibrated it with a ColorMunki and results are very nice. However it is not clear to me how to establish a relation between the Affinity print profile and a device preset. For example I created several profiles in Affinity Photo with names like GLL_10_15, GL_13_18 and GLL_A4 (short for Glossy Landscape size 10*15, 13*18 and A4). I also made Device presets for the Epson X55 with exactly the same names and just before saving a new Affinity Photo print profile, did select that device preset, then saved the Affinity Photo print profile. I more or less expected that when I switch to a specific Affinity Photo print profile the corresponding Device preset would also be chosen, but this does not seem to be the case. I still have to click the Properties button right next to the printer selection listbox in the Affinity Photo Print window and choose the correct Device preset as well. Am I expecting too much? Am I overlooking something? Any thoughts? With kind regards, Aad Slingerland.
  16. Simple "print" function doesn't work. I have an HP laser printer accessible through local net. When I try to print a simple document, preview doesn't show my document and if I continue, printer starts, but I get a blank page.
  17. When I add a table of contents to any document, I can't export or print. Clicking on either Export... or Print... immediately freezes Publisher and I can do nothing at all. I have to kill this instance of Publisher using Task Manager and then re-launch it to do anything further. I can consistently recreate this any time I have a master page containing text frames. If there is no TOC, I can export and print as expected. As soon as I add a TOC those functions cease to operate. Steps to recreate: Create a new file using the default settings. Add a text frame to the master spread. On any page, insert a TOC by double-clicking in the text frame and selecting Text > Table of Contents > Insert Table of Contents Click File > Export... or File > Print... Publisher freezes completely This is not happening if I leave the master alone and just create a text frame on a page and put the TOC in that. I am on Windows 10 using beta 1.7.0.227. I haven't used any previous beta versions so I don't know if this used to work or not.
  18. Hi, I have been testing the Affinity Publisher Beta since its launch and find it to be performing well in most departments, but for a few glitches here and there which is being actively resolved by the developers in the subsequent builds. Kudos to them for the good work! One feature I would really like to see added in APUB to its already impressive list is "print preview". The ability to view the file to be printed, make imposition layouts, multiple ups, booklet layouts, add bleed, trim & registration marks will be a great help to the printing fraternity. With this one addition Affinity Publisher can break the monopoly of Corel Draw among the print industry in India. That said I have nothing against Corel Draw, it is a good, steady and mature software with lots of features and amazing ease of use. Its main drawback is its forbidding cost! I feel another able competitor in the market will bring about the right balance. Really appreciate if the APUB team can consider this feature for the future builds. Regards, Vijay
  19. I am used to printing in Photoshop CC in 6" x 4" and there is a facility to scale photos to the size of the paper but I can't find one in Affinity Photo. I have a 6x4 portrait image but when trying to print it will not fill the paper in length so how do I get it to the correct size for the paper? Screenshot 2018-12-15 at 17.34.15.tiff
  20. I want to print 4 pages of A5 on one A4 sheet, so the A4 will be landscape but printed on a printer that prints A4 portrait. The trailing edge needs to be 16mm, the other edges 3mm. Using Facing Pages, Publisher allows me to set the outside margins at 16mm, but I will only want 16mm for the right-hand margin of the right-hand pages. The left-hand margin of left-hand pages needs to be 3mm. Is there a way of doing this? If not, can you please add the facility to the Facing Pages section?
  21. Hi I have problem with correct printing with transparent elements. On a page are embedded pdf logo and few embedded psd with transparency and shadow fx. Printing on PS color laser printer without "Clip Transparency" I got a rectangle (lighter/darker) around each object and no shadow effect! Sample attached - print1.png = pdf logo Then print with selected "Clip Transparency". Is better. Although still poorly you will see a rectangle around the object and no shadow effect! Sample attached - print2.png, print3.png and corresponding - screenshot.png I find that the best way is to export to pdf and print pdf, however can I print without boxes around objects and with visible shadow effect? WIN 10
  22. Hi, there. I would like advice from those who have already had professional experience with printing from Affinity. I'm working with the noise effect/filter on Affinity, on a file at 300dpi for a 1:1 print scale. What is the lowest value of the noise that I can use to be visible in print? And, vice versa, is there a very high value that disturbs printing? Thanks so much!
  23. Publisher still crashes when I try to print. When I send a print to the printer the progress bar nearly gets to the end and than publisher crashes. This doesn't happen all the time. It's just when I print with bleed and marks and full rastered and even than it sometimes works very well Sometimes it helps to reboot the Laptop. Sometimes I it helps to changes printing options to make it work... I think Publisher doesn't like my Sharp MFP 2630 ..... but/ because Publisher is the only program that crashes while printing. So I export with bleed and marks to PDF than print this from Acrobat .. but that's no fun...
  24. Well ! The title says it all, Affinity Publisher is missing/lacking of the essential Export Persona. On a workflow like mine where i use Affinity Photo to process everything pixel, Designer to Process everything Vector and make them all converge to Affinity Publisher for project finalization. So, 80% of my exports happens there because Affinity Publisher does it better when it have to print stuffs ! Please bring a shiny but powerful export persona to Publisher.
  25. Since I upgraded to OS Majove I have a printing problem which occurs in Photo, Designer and Publisher. Everything I print comes out brown, black and white text prints brown and white, colour graphics have a brown cast. Changing the IOC profile doesn't help. If I print from any application other than Affinity then the print is as it should be. Is this a Majove issue or an Affinity issue ?
