Design and Artwork Specifications
As discussed earlier, the bleed accommodates additional space for your background color so that no details are missed upon trimming down the sticker to its actual size.
The trim line is the actual cut line or where we’ll trim the sticker or label to achieve the indicated size.
The caution zone ensures that text is placed at least 0.125” away from the trim line and prevents the copy from being cut off or too close to the edge after achieving the label’s final size.
The file size doesn’t matter. What’s important is your file follows the guidelines that ensure high-quality printing:
- Add a 1/8” or 0.125” bleed on each side of your file.
- Do not position any important text or images beyond the safety zone or inside the trim line.
- The file should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi.
- Set the file’s color mode as CMYK before saving and uploading.
- Convert all text into outlines if it’s saved on Adobe Illustrator or InDesign. For Adobe Photoshop, be sure to flatten the image.
- Lines should be at least .25 pts thick—anything thinner may not show up on print.
