Most halftone artworks are difficult to print, because of the various factors that must be considered. If your artwork contains halftone, please make sure the halftone is set between 85 lpi to 110 lpi. The artwork must be at 100% of the actual imprint size, as any enlargement or reduction will alter the halftones. Please send artwork in electronic format. It is always a good idea to consult BAM Graphics before submitting any artwork containing halftones.
