How to avoid using web graphics on printed material
Print design has a lot of different designs and rules compared to web design. You can only do so much in print design considering the small space you have. It is best to find high resolution images that fit the needs for your print project. There are many sites that offer such images for free or at a low cost. The problem is finding the suitable high quality, relevant content.
It is important to provide documents that are ready to print by creating a 3mm bleed around the edge. When saving layered PSD files, you can extend or crop the image file on the background layer and cut down on work with white borders between text and the image.
3. Working with fonts and not making them readable for different devices
If you provide or edit anything for someone else, you may need to save all fonts that were used. Some fonts, like those from CorelDraw, are very common and will be replaced with a default if they are unavailable on the recipient’s system. This can cause issues when looking for old files because the file will not open if the fonts are no longer available.
