    Artwork Guidelines

    artwork guidelinesThe better the input, the better the output. These artwork guidelines should help us deliver the best results for you on the first go.

    This guidance should be used by all customers and where possible, have your graphic designer read this before providing new artwork.

    Artwork Guidelines: Process

    So this is the process we go through to make your labels:

    Artwork Guidelines: File Types:

    Artwork Guidelines: File Sizes:

    Artwork Guidelines: File Settings:

    Artwork Guidelines: Fonts:

    Artwork Guidelines: Rich Black:

    Rich black uses a combination of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black inks to create a deeper black. It is useful in flexographic printing but unnecessary for digital printing.

    Artwork Guidelines: Canvases and Artboards:

    *If you wish to prepare the Die Line Correctly, you can set it to Spot Colour, Cyan, 0.25pt stroke and Overprint Stroke

    Incorporation of Terms and Conditions:

    There is a statement on the Design Confirmation we will send you. This statement has some important points included to leave you in no doubt that you are taking responsibility for what we print. The statement is as follows:

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All orders subject to our Terms & Conditions of Sale. Visit
    By agreeing to this design confirmation you are agreeing to the incorporation of our terms and conditions in the transaction to buy labels.
    This proof is only a visual guide, not for colour match, and does not represent ink on final substrate. This proof is supplied prior to the final job for your approval. Check all copy, layout, colour separation, dimensions, barcodes and specification in detail. We do not accept responsibility for errors identified after approval. If this item is approved and printed you will have to pay for the order irrespective of any errors found after print.

    What this means is if you find errors in the work after we agreed to print it and we printed it, that constitutes a completed order. We are not responsible for any errors subsequently found in the specification. This is because it is unreasonable for us to print work with errors found after the fact and not be expected to be paid for this work. If there are errors in the artwork as a result of an act on our part (e.g. omission of an element), then we accept responsibility for the error and will reprint the work correctly at no cost to you.

    There is a specific statement about colour matching. If you wish to have a colour matched product, we will need to work with Pantone colours or a sample swatch. Pantone colours are provided at no extra cost for all flexographic work. Digital work cannot guarantee Pantone or colour swatch match due to the technical limitations of the printing process. For digital Pantone match, you should discuss your needs with your sales representative. Digital colour matching is a chargeable service as a result of the time it takes to adjust artwork to achieve the colour fidelity based on the printer settings at the time of print.
