File Guidelines

  • All files must be uploaded though this website. We do not accept files via email. If you need to re-upload an altered or fixed file, it must also be submitted through this website.
  • Accepted file formats: .psd, .pdf, .tif, .eps, .ai
  • We do not accept the following file formats: MS Word, Powerpoint, Publisher, or MS Office clipart. If you only have an MS word file, please use convert your Word document to a PDF file.
  • Art should be VECTOR EPS (Illustrator .EPS, OR .AI) with all text saved as outlines or curves, or at 300-1200 (higher is better) dpi B/W .TIF or .PSD file at the size it will be printed. Please avoid the use of tones, gradients, and shading - most of our printing processes will not reproduce tone art correctly.

Ink Printed Labels

  • roll02All copy must be placed no less than 1/16” inside the die cut - this includes inset borders.
  • All bleed copy must extend (bleed) 1/16” outside the die cut. Bleed borders must be a min. of 1/16” thick with an additional 1 1/6” bleed outside    the die cut.
  • Minimum size rule lines are 1 pt. Positive text may be set no smaller than 5 pt for sans-serif fonts, and no smaller than 6 pt for serif or script fonts.
  • Reversed (knocked out) text may be set no smaller than 8 pt for most fonts.
  • Art that is reversed or knocked out should not contain very fine detail, as it may “fill in” on press.
  • Registration of color to color is 1/32” between any two colors and the min. width for traps is 1 pt.
  • Due to the nature of flexographic inks, any two colors that trap (overlap) will produce a third color.
  • If you are submitting a bitmapped file, it must be AT LEAST 300 dpi. The recommended resolution is 600-1200 dpi.
    IMPORTANT:
    while the printer will run files sent in at 300 dpi, the final output may be slightly jagged around the edges. This will not always show up in the proofs that we send you, but is an unavoidable result of running low resolution files on press. For optimal output, please upload files set at at least 600 dpi or full vector files.
  • If you are submitting a bitmapped file, it must be black and white. We CAN reproduce grayscale (screened) art for this product line. Screen valuse may range from 3% - 90%.
  • Gradated screens can range from 3% - 100%.
  • Vector files submitted for this product line line may be in color.
  • If you are submitting art for a 2 color label, it MUST be in vector EPS format.

Hot Stamped Bags & Boxes

  • Art should not contain very fine detail, as it will “fill in” on press.
  • We recommend against large “reversed” areas in your design.
  • If you are submitting a bitmapped file, it must be AT LEAST 300 dpi. For best output, the recommended resolution is 600-1200 dpi.
