 Fonts

Convert all fonts to outlines or supply all fonts.

Bleed

To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your document, be sure to extend any background colours or design elements all the way to the edge.

Die-line

Die lines are the finished size of the label.

Copy Area

Copy Area is needed to keep your text and important images from being cut off from the die line.

Corner Radius

Corner Radius (CR) describes how rounded the corners are on a rectangular die-cut. Standard is 1/8 for machine application purposes.

Smaller (CR) we recommend consulting your production team or contract packager before purchasing labels with less than a 1/8” CR.

Image Resolution And Colour

All Images should be 300 DPI for best print Quality.
Images found on the web are typically at a resolution of 72-dpi.
This resolution is low for good quality printing.
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) are the colours used most in printing process.
RGB (Red, Green and Blue) are the colours used by screen displays such as your monitor.
Your document should be created in CMYK mode so that the colours that you see on the screen most closely match the final printed product. If you create your document in RGB, the colours in your printed label may vary slightly. Bright values produced by your monitor cannot be reproduced in print.
