Preparing Artwork Files
|FIle Type||For the best results, please submit Adobe Illustrator files with artwork left in layers. If you're creating a design that needs to extend beyond the trimmed area, make sure your work extends past the die line.|
|Fonts||To ensure a high quality result, please convert all fonts to outlines or provide us with the necessary font files.|
|Color Mode||Please submit all graphics and colors in CMYK mode. If they are given as RGB, we will be required to convert them into 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||For optimal print quality, ensure that all images are 300dpi at their final size. Keep in mind that enlarging an image decreases its resolution and embedding them rather than leaving as links is the best practice|
|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 the PREMIUM and STANDARD sleeves, all Pantone PMS colors will be transformed to their nearest CMYK equivalent. If you're using PMS colors when designing, please only refer to the C (coated) version of your desired color rather than U (uncoated), as our printing is done on coated paper stock.|
|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)|
