Every time you start to create a new file to design your
artwork, be sure to specify the right size and the right
resolution (300 dpi). It is essential to
do so, to avoid any problems later on. In some cases you
may need to recreate you artwork from the beginning. Also,
we recommend you use a CMYK color mode.
2. Remember: do not type any text to close to the
edge. We need to have some space for cutting. Always
use 1/4” bleed around your document (see "Templates"
3. When you scan, use 300dpi option.
4. Be sure to use high quality pictures.
If original pictures looking blurry, pixilated or discolored
it will be visible in the final print. We do not take responsibility
for such deterioration.
For BLACK TEXT over white background use
100% (K) black. For DEEP BLACK
background color, you should use a mix of C
40%, M 30%, Y 20%, K100%
When saving in JPG format always use MAXIMUM
/ Spot UV instructions
color mode CMYK. When creating a UV mask you must create
a separate file along with your regular artwork. This file
must be 100% black (K) (no other colors, gradients, or shading)
and white. The black will represent where the UV mask will
be. Just create a template over your artwork. See below.
