If the tombstones shall be available on the planned signing dates, please arrange the handing over of printable files early enough. Then we can comply with a delivery in time easily. Please pre-formulate the text of the tombstone content as a word file and outline, if, where and how logos, images or different materials shall be used. Based on this we can then develop a design. For this period of internal and external coordination calculate 5- 10 workdays.
Time of production
Please consider that the company producing the tombstones needs ca. 10 business days for the manufacturing after approving the tombstone- layouts with the inserted, printable logos and images. Customers’ specifications and tombstones with special measurements are more difficult to produce; therefore more time is necessary.
Logos downloaded from the internet usually do not have the required resolution. Based on our experience we can say that the purchasing of printable logos costs most of the time during the internal preparation process. So it makes sense to ask the marketing department of the partner company early enough to send appropriate logos via e-mail.
For tombstones with paper inlay:
The logo needs a resolution quality of at least 300 dpi (dpi = dots per inch) and has to be in jpeg or EPS standard, preferably with defined CMYK color codes.
For tombstones with silk screen print:
Vector-EPS standard is needed for the logos. All color codes should be specified in HKS or Pantone.
For the integration of images:
It is important that beside the permission of the copyright the image fulfills the requirement of a resolution with at least 300 dpi, as a jpeg or ESP file. They regularly can be found in the picture library of the homepage, belonging to the partner enterprise concerned.
