Yeah I wouldn't worry about that. It's standard stuff; I sort of think they throw out those terms to stymie people who have zero clue.

Indesign gives you an "effective DPI" value, so if your image is 20" at 72dpi and you scale it down to 25%, it will show as 288dpi. I rely on that a LOT.

I like that site. They don't weigh you down with a lot of chatter. If you don't know what bleeds and margins are, you have to dig deeper. The sites that put ALL of the arcana in the first page you visit are the ones that I don't trust.


I think someone on Instagram recommended that site - I don't remember if it was anyone I actually know.  They seem to have better prices and options than other ones I looked at.  They take single pages - makes me wonder if I did 2-page spreads if they would want them laid out for printing a 16-page booklet (i.e. pages 1-16. 2-15, 3-14, etc.) or if they just figure it out if you number the pages.

Thanks.  It does seem like an unusual request - I always thought of CMYK being primarily for offset printing.  Yeah, and I assume the vendor/printer would have and use their unique CMYK profile instead of the one generated by a user's software.  Thanks for that link - I'll have to test out a sticker design there.
The 'zine site I was looking at says this on their Support page:  We prefer a single PDF file made up of multiple pages, but we like to be as flexible as possible, which is why you can upload your files with us as single or multi-page PDF, JPG, PNG, Postscript, MS Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, Lotus or Excel file.
For the best results, make sure that your colors are in CMYK and that your images that are between 150 – 300dpi (dots per inch).

I’m the same way doing graphics designing back then too. Some companies haven’t changed from what works for them. I too graduated to digital everything but I miss those analog days sometimes.

Any ANY printer who demands CMYK is doing so to protect themselves from people who are super fussy. Their sticker printer is WAY more capable than offset printing is, so if you convert your file to CMYK, you're just playing with a smaller box of crayons. But your files will look pretty much the way they do on your monitor, if your monitor is calibrated. Which it isn't, so what's the point? You have to trust that they know what they're doing and using that mealy 
For your colors to be the most accurate in printing, create your artwork in CMYK colors so you are not surprised by the difference once it prints on your stickers.
is their way of saying we'd rather cover our ass than get you a great product.

If you're doing a 'zine with black type, then set it up in InDesign and export a PDF "Leave Colors Unchanged," which will send RGB art you've placed and CMYK colors you create in ID. Always let the printers' RIPs separate your art to their proprietary CMYK profile, you'll be much happier.

I have had GREAT luck with StickerMule Their sample program of 10 stickers for $9 is hard to beat; we've done half a dozen so far and I've done some commercially that the client was super giddy about. If you do $100 in one order, they send you a free bottle of Mule Sauce and it seems stupid but that's really tasty.

*that's a get-me-and-you $10 link

Seriously, I had pounded out 3x this much. I have opinions and I am right and upset people with my opinions but I do not care.

In the past I always sent the CMYK separations to the printers along with the final image look for their reference. It was no big deal doing that way for me.

I've been looking into these different sites that do printing of  'zines and stickers and notice that most of them are asking for a CMYK PDF file as their preferred format for submitting designs.  It's easy enough for me to convert images to CMYK and make a four-page PDF but it doesn't specify if they want them separated.  
It seems like they just want one final image after its converted to that profile since they don't specify "separated files".  Does anyone have any experience with companies who prefer that format?  
Here is one of the sticker sites - their stuff looks pretty cool and it's not terribly expensive: StickerApp
