- Etched Vinyl (Graphic Vinyl)
There are two different possible ways to do a etched vinyl.
version 1: The graphic motif can be extended to the inner hole. In this case our black paper labels will be used of the pressing.
version 2: The graphic motif only reaches to the labels. This this version the label can be printed according to the costumers choice.
- Connector - software for transfer of print data
For the transfer of print data we recommend the use of our Connector software. After the installation of the version for your operating system you won't need any additional log in data and your pdf files will be uploaded safely.
Before the transfer the data will be examined on conformity with the pdf/x3 specifications. If any errors are indicated like non printable colours (RGB), low resolution (< 200 dpi) or missing fonts these should be corrected before transferring the data.
There is a quick reference guide for the software available for download.
Please do not send archives (zip, rar or similar formats) or folders since the contents won't be checked.
If there are any questions please contact us via e-mail printdatenpallas-groupde or telephone +49 5441 977-173.
- FTP Server Access
You can send us data in many ways. For larger volumes of data of more than 5 MB you best use our FTP server. For access please contact us.
To put data on our server, you need an FTP client. We recommend FileZilla.
