Not to talk too 'techy' here but we would like to advise you about the artwork specifications that we require from you to ensure a quick and efficient service. If files are not submitted as per the following guidelines then delays and even extra costs may be incurred.
Important artwork guidelines
We require your finalised artwork sent as a PDF or Ai (CS4) file with a minimum resolution of 300dpi. All artwork should be 100% actual to the size you want printing with a 3mm bleed added.
For example, if your final label is going to be 80mm x 60mm, your artwork needs to be exactly this size but with the bleed added as shown below in our example.
If your label is a standard shape, for example, a square or circle then you won’t need to add the cut line. However, if your label is a more complex shape, for example, a star then please supply your artwork with the cut line on a separate layer.

Of course, if any of the above completely blows your mind – simply give us a buzz, and we will be more than happy to help guide you through all the artwork specifications you need. Remember our artwork partner can always help you with your sticky label design if you don’t know how to get going.
