Artwork Guide

Please ensure that you have checked through our artwork guidelines below and your artwork is ready for print. This is so we can ensure your artwork is printed correctly, with exceptional results. If you are unsure about whether or not your artwork is ready, please feel free to contact us for further assistance.

File Format

Our preferred file format is PDF file which is an industry standard, so We recommend all artwork to be supplied as PDF.However We acceptance the following file Formats: Recommended File formats : PDF, AI, PSD, EPS files

All files must be in CMYK mode. Any file provided in RGB mode will be converted into CMYK mode before print and it may look slightly less vibrant on your screen.

File Size

6 pt font size is required for adequate legibility.
Fonts vary based on weight, color, and style. Certain fonts can be made smaller than others. (minimum font is 6pt if foil sticker)

CMYK vs RGB vs Spot Color (PMS)

In the graphic design profession there are three main colour models used for design depending on the application: CMYK, PMS and RGB

CMYK

CMYK stands for cyan,magenta, yellow, and black.It is referred to as fourcolour process and is commonly used for printed materials that include images, photos or documents with many colours.

RGB

RGB stands for red, green, and blue. These are the colours used on a computer monitor to create colour images on the screen. However, when it comes to printing, they must be converted to CMYK. RGB colours are used when designing for web or multimedia.

Spot Colour (PMS)

PMS or Pantone matching system is the most widely used system for specifying and blending match colours. This system identifies more than 700 colours, provides designers with swatches for specific colours, and gives printers a formula for making these. They are also known as spot colours, and are used when a specific colour is required, for example. Metallic and fluorescent colours cannot be achieved by using four-colour process printing. A spot colour is necessary for printing these colours.

Overprint

We recommend you to check overprint preview for every project, even though you don’t use overprint intentionally, to see if everything looks the way you intended. Incorrect use can produce unwanted results. We will not be responsible for misuse of the Overprint function.

Resolution

The minimum resolution we recommend for print is 300 dots per inch (300dpi) at final size.
Please note that if your image is in a lower dpi, converting it to 300dpi using a tool will not actually increase the resolution.
Please make sure that the actual image is originally created at 300dpi. Some designs may require a higher DPI.

Fonts

All fonts must be embedded or outlined.
By converting fonts to outlines in programs like Illustrator and Photoshop, you will avoid font issues such as missing fonts or missing text.
When converting text to outlines, the font becomes a ‘shape’ and will look no different than its original font. This way we can print them as you intended them to appear on your product.
Select all text > Menu > Type > Create Outlines

Stroke

Stroke width must be a minimum of 0.25pt. If it is too fine, it may not visible on the final product even though it is visible on the screen.

Sate Area, Trim and Bleed

Safe Area
This area represents the safe area for important contents. Texts and images within the safe area are guaranteed not to be affected.
It must be 2mm in from the trim lines.
Trim

Trim lines are the finished size of the product.
The document will be cut close to trim lines however the actual cut can happen anywhere between the bleed area and the safe area.
Therefore it is very important to keep your texts and images within the safe area.

Bleed
The very edges of the document are called the bleed area.

You must supply your artwork (excluding business cards and stickers) with a 2mm bleed area all around and ensure that your artwork and background colour extend into the bleed area, all the way to the edge.

Templates

We have a range of templates of different products for you to download and use as a guide when creating your own artwork.
