Artwork Guidelines

The quality of your imprint begins with your artwork.

Full Color, 4 Color Process, CMYK Custom Printed Labels & Stickers
When creating your art file keep in mind:
We have 1/64" tolerance when being manufactured, so the following requirements are a must.
Type: Minimum 8 point overall.
Line Thickness: Minimum .75 point overall. 
If your art design is reduced to fit a label size, the type point size / line thickness above still applies. 
Bleeds and screens are included for the price shown. 

"DO NOT flatten the artwork"
If you work with templates, keep them on a separate layer. 

Let's Get Started!
1) Create your art file in 4 Color Process and save in CMYK mode, embed all images.
2) Start with the label size, the label size is also known as the cut line.
3) Keep your imprint 1/16" "inside" (not on) the label size/cut line.
4) If bleeds are required, extend your bleed 1/16" beyond the label size/cut line.
For a quick reference please see the product image, here you can see the details of 1-4 above.

All other categories reference the following.
