Preparing Artwork Files
|FIle Type||Preferred file type is Adobe Illustrator with artwork left in layers. If files bleed then make sure artwork extends beyond the die line|
|Fonts||Convert all fonts to outlines whenever possible or supply us with your fonts|
|Color Mode||Provide all graphics and colors in CMYK mode. Files submitted as RGB will be converted to CMYK.|
|Number of Colors||STANDARD sleeves require that the number of print colors be limited to 2 (shades of the colors are permitted). In addition STANDARD sleeves have a defined imprint area|
|Resolution||Images should be 300dpi at the final size they will print at. When images are enlarged the resolution decreases. Images should be embedded and not left as links|
|Graphics / Logos||Graphics and logos should be left as vector whenever possible. Graphics should be embedded and not left as links|
|Pantone (PMS) Colors||For both PREMIUM and STANDARD sleeves all Pantone (PMS) colors are converted to their closest CMYK equivalent. If you are working in PMS colors then please specify colors using the C (coated) version of the color and not U (uncoated) as we are printing on a coated paper.|
|Arcing Artwork||Artwork should be arced so that text and graphics appear horizontal when the sleeve is placed around the cup. You can do this or our prepress department will do this (only for vectory artwork)|
