What are the artwork guidelines and file requirements?

Category: Packaging Knowledge

To ensure the best possible print quality, it’s recommended that you use AI or PDF file formats and work in CMYK color space rather than RGB.

All text in the design should be converted to curves, and black elements should be set to 100% K value for rich and consistent black color. It’s important not to flatten or change the dimensions of the design, and avoid indicating the template lines (die line).

All images and patterns should be embedded in the file to avoid missing or low-quality images.

If you plan to use surface treatments such as UV, foiling, or emboss/deboss, please vectorize the elements to ensure accurate representation.
