Size & Bleed
Always set your artwork up at the correct size, it makes it easier for everyone involved. If any of your design bleeds of the edge of the label, ensure you add at least 2mm on artwork extra on each edge of the label.
We print in a CMYK mode. This means that all colours you see on screen can be achieved on the printed sheet. If you are designing your labels using RGB mode you will notice a slight colour shift in your printed labels when finally printed. This is because many colours in the RGB mode are not within the CMYK colour gamut. We convert your artwork to CMYK upon receipt if it has not already been done.
We advise you to set your resolution to a minimum of 350dpi at actual size. This ensures that all text and graphics when printed are legible. We will usually let you know if we feel that a design will not be legible before we go to print. This is however your own responsibility as we cannot always tell from the artwork file.
CMYK 100% Black
When setting up black text, always use the CMYK colour mode as discussed earlier. You will need to ensure all text is made from 100% Black only and not a mix of RGB or CMYK colours. We can not be held responsible if your artwork is set-up incorrectly and text doesn't print as crisp as it possibly could do. We provide these artwork guides to ensure you get the best possible print. Feel free to discuss any artwork requirements with us.
