Artwork Preparations Tips:
Be sure to DELETE any hidden layers and flatten your artwork to avoid issues regarding overlays, gradients, drop shadows, and transparencies.
Files must be submitted with proper orientation to ensure proper printing.
It is best to try to avoid using borders in your design. If a border is too close to the trim, the trim may be slightly off-center.
Ensure that your PDF is high res and that all images are CMYK at 300 DPI.
All text fonts must be outlined (not embedded).
No linked images.
If the file contains a spot UV, it must be a separate file using black 100% K as the area that is glossy.
The die line shape must be a single path stroked.
Please provide vector-only artwork for type, logos, shapes, and all other artwork. Only provide embedded raster artwork for actual 4/C images.
Black type should have the following values: C0, M0, Y0, K100.
The trim size of the Illustrator file must match the final trim size of the final size. Use bleed settings in a page editor of 0.125 inches minimum each way.
Files should be CMYK only (no RGB) with a Dieline and/or White_Ink spot color depending on your order specifications.
