Before submitting artwork, please follow this checklist:
RECOMMENDED PRINT FORMATS
Adobe PDF format is recommended by our Design Team. Other recommended formats are AI, EPS & PSD.
Save all files, artboards and canvases in CMYK colour mode. RGB / Pantone / PMS colours will get converted to CMYK during production.
A 3mm bleed area is required on all artwork designs.
Save or Embed all images at 300dpi (Dots Per Inch) resolution.
DIE CUT / CUSTOM SHAPE STICKERS
We need to keep at least 2mm space (on all sides) from your design to the cutting line for production purposes. This is to ensure the die cutting process works accurately during production.
BORDERS ON STICKERS
We need to make borders at least 2mm thick (on all sides) on your design for production purposes. This is to ensure the guillotining process works accurately during production.
MINIMUM RECOMMENDED FONT SIZE
While fonts as small as 5pt can print on your stickers, we always recommend fonts are at least 7pt in size for clarity and legibility.
FONT TO OUTLINES
In formats such as Adobe Illustrator, please convert “Fonts To Outlines” on all fonts used in the documents. This is also known as “Fonts to Curves” in some software.
ARTWORK FILE SIZE
If you can send large artwork files via your email software, we can generally accept them. However, for very large files we recommend using WeTransfer Free: https://www.wetransfer.com/ (for a single artwork or ZIP file up to 2gb). Please contact us for which email to use for the WeTransfer friend’s email.
ACCEPTABLE ARTWORK FORMATS
- Adobe Acrobat PDF (Recommended)
- TIF Images
- Adobe Photoshop (Recommended)
- EPS Files
- Adobe Illustrator (Recommended)
- JPG Images
ACCEPTABLE COMPRESSION FORMATS
how to convert fonts to outlines (adobe Illustrator)
You can convert fonts to outlines in Illustrator by highlighting all text with the “Selection Tool” and selecting:
Type › Create Outlines.
This will ensure all fonts in your artwork look correct at our end, and our software doesn’t substitute your selected fonts.
how To check the DPI of an image (Adobe Photoshop)
You can check the DPI of an image in Photoshop by selecting:
Image › Image Size
It is recommended that you do not use any images straight off web pages, as they are low resolution (72 DPI) and will produce an inferior quality sticker (blurry & pixelated). TIF is the recommended file format as they are higher quality and compatible with both Macs & PCs.
