PRINTING REQUIREMENTS

BLEED

Artwork should be emailed to us in the exact size you are requesting for print with .125 bleed space (1/8 of an inch). This gives your print job extra space to ensure no graphics or text being cut off during the cutting process.

RESOLUTION

All file formats must have a minimum of 300 dpi resolution.  Print images need to be created at 300 dpi or there will be a substantial drop in the image quality.

COLORS

For full-color print jobs, convert all RGB and Pantone spot colors to CMYK color mode.  For black and white print jobs, use grayscale color mode (not CMYK or RGB)

BORDERS

We recommend no borders because shifts in the cutting process can cause borders to look uneven.  However, if you insist on having borders, they should be at least 1/4” inside each cut line or 3/8 inside each bleed line.
