Hi

I use http://uk.moo.comto print postcards. That works very well in most cases, but not when part of my picture is black/a silhouette.

On https://support.moo.com/hc/en-gb/sections/200572484 they write

"We use public ICC profiles, so if you preview and save your files using the 'Coated FOGRA39' colourspace, they will not be altered by our back end processes.

[...] 'Adobe PDF/X-1a' preset. In the 'colour' box, select 'Coated FOGRA39' from the destination dropdown."

 

Is this Adobe specific or is there a way to do it in AP? I looked a bit at the help texts & the export persona, but didn't find the answer.

Hi -manuschwendener.ch,

 

The Coated FOGRA 39 profile is one of the CMYK settings you can choose for your document set up.

 

When your file is using this profile, then your exported file will also comply with this profile.

 

Paul.

Hi manuschwendener.ch,

 

I noticed this info on the MOO site:

"Please note, we don't offer any spot colour or any pantone matching, so its best to remove them from your PDFs and ensure only CMYK colour values"

 

If you were to invest in a PANTONE® Color Bridge Coated book, it has split swatches of the the actual PANTONE® colour on the left & its CMYK values on the right.

 

A very handy tool if you are designing for a Corporate or business that specifies PANTONE® colours in its logos etc. & you want the best CMYK match possible from your file:

 

 

Paul.

Thank you, Paul, good to know, even if I have no need for it atm.

 

I'll tell you how the result turned out - the great thing with moo is that you can order 1 card per picture to see how they turn out before ordering larger quantities.

 

 
(Just saw https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10949-colour-profile-not-added-or-changed, but I exported as PDF, so it's a different case.)
