Additional Artwork Information
Please include a colour proof where possible. If you do not have this facility, please provide a black and white composite and colour separations.
Reproducing Photos / Scanning
If we are producing a photo / picture in up to 4 process colours, the original scanned file must be 300 dpi, assuming that the file is going to be used at 100%. A scan of anything pre-printed is not generally suitable.
Colours for flexo printing
Your labels will be printed with up to 7 colours. Please ensure that 4 colour pictures have been converted and saved as CMYK values. The maximum screen ruling is 150 dpi with a minimum 3% dot.
Please ensure that any placed EPS’s [or equivalents] are provided. Black text should be set to overprint. All special fonts should be supplied ensuring both suitcase fonts and postscript fonts are present. If this is not possible, all text should be outlined.
Bleed and Cutter Lines
The design should bleed outside the cutter line by 1mm. Cutter lines should be placed on a separate layer for easy removal. Cutter lines also need to be editable within an EPS file or removed completely. Label dimensions, radius corners, colours, instructions etc, may be placed in a README file or emailed.
Flexo printing (inks) can be colour matched. Foil Blocking cannot be colour matched, only matched as close as foils allow. Tints cannot be reproduced.
