Here at LKCS, our Digital Services team can handle any design piece that you need. Whether it is a billboard, newsletter, website or email marketing message or anything inbetween, we’ve got you covered. But did you know that there are differences between designing for print versus designing for the web? Let’s take a look at a few differences between the two.

Team Print vs. Team Web Infographic

Color

Print uses Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) settings. Web uses Red, Green and Blue (RGB).

Resolution

Use 300 dpi for print and 72dpi for web.

Fonts

For printing, designer’s have their choice of any font. For web, we recommend sans-serif fonts which are legible and easy to read.

Files

Print jobs can be saved as PNG, JPG, PDF, EPS or PSD file types. Web uses PNG, JPG, PDF, SVG or Gif.

Media

Print jobs can mean newspaper ads or billboards. Web jobs can refer to websites or banner ads that appear on other websites.
