To inquire about getting a project printed by Nakatomi, contact us with a preview image of the print, quantity, screen (color) count, and any specialty instructions (metallic ink, specialty paper, etc). Minimum print orders are 50 copies for < 18”x24” and 100 copies for < 24”x36”.

PAPER

Nakatomi stocks 100lb Cougar White and Cougar Natural cover stock, which has a smooth, ideal poster surface. If the project calls for specialty paper, the customer may ship their own or invoice paper through Nakatomi. All invoices with specialty paper must be paid up front.

FILE FORMAT

300dpi layered .tiff files are preferred, with each color on its own transparent layer and each layer labeled with its Pantone number (Coated (C) and Uncoated (U) guides). Color matching to the screen without Pantone guide numbers is possible, but not advised. One color per layer except in cases with a gradient or split fountain effect. Notes on ink transparency/overlay/color are highly recommended.

If the image needs to be full bleed, set up file up with 1/4″ bleed all the way around. However, the largest size prints–24”×36”–need at least a 3/4″ paper (no ink) border all the way around the print. Smaller sizes can be full bleed.

PRICING

All pricing based on using 100lb Cover Cougar White or Natural stock paper. Specialty paper requests affect pricing.
