Attention, the integration of your mandatory mentions in your creation is your responsibility, they will not be added by us.

However, if your RCS is missing, KVC PRINT will add its own RCS as a vertical signature at the bottom left of your poster.


Minimum size of the RCS mention on your file:

→ body 5 for a file at 1/5th scale or less,

→ body 2 for a 1/10th or larger scale file.

Absolutely avoid superimposed whites.
For color overprints, be sure to check your application settings.

Without overprinting: each color is printed live with a reserve of white below to guarantee the color.

With overprint: the colors are printed on top of each other, which can create errors!

See the ADOBE User's Guide for more information on overprinting and how to set it up

If your document contains gray or black texts, we invite you to use a color composed only of100% black or black down(for grays). Thin lines and fonts will look sharper.



For your flat areas of black, we advise you to create a specific color made up of100% black, 40 % cyan, 28% magenta and 30% yellow. This support will make your solid blacks denser and deeper without overinking.



In order to avoid printing problems due to ink overload, it is recommended not to exceed an ink load of 300%.
