Printing Specifications

File Format:

The Preferred file format is Adobe Illustrator. Please Do Not set type or layout your label in Photoshop or other Pixel based programs, rather set type and compose file in Illustrator.


Color Mode:

Artwork should be in CMYK and or Pantone spot colors. Your artwork should be high-resolution images, minimum resolution of 300 dpi for quality printing. We prefer images not to be less than 300 dpi because the printing quality becomes poor.


Make layered artwork:

Layered art is much easier for our Art Department to work with because elements (graphics, colors, effects, lines, etc.) can be moved, edited or changed. Images, like a photo, are considered flat art because its elements are fixed and can’t be easily manipulated like layered art.


Vector graphics:

We recommend that you design with vector graphics instead of raster graphics because of versatility and quality.


Convert text to outlines:

To ensure your text appears correctly, you should convert your text to outlines so “missing” font errors or font substitutions don’t cause printing issues. Adobe Illustrator, and other design software, will recognize the converted text as an object so it will print the text as it originally appears.


Send all linked files or embed them in the Illustrator file.



What's a bleed? Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to the final size. The purpose of a bleed is to continue a color, image, or design to the edge of the product. Due to the possibility of shifting in the trimming process, a bleed is required to ensure that a white line does not show on the edges of your product.

Add 0.125" (1/8") bleed on all four sides of your product.


Crop Marks or Dieline:

Please build your press-ready digital files by adding crop marks or dieline.
Lines indicating where the paper should be cut to produce the correct size.
