File Specifications

  • File Format
    • File must be vector format, Adobe Illustrator or PDF, with all text converted to outlines and Pantone Solid Uncoated spot color swatches assigned. We can work with some raster files, but they must be 800dpi or above.
  • Blind Impression
    • If you would like a blind impression pass, just assign the artwork with a 100% Magenta color.
  • Die Cutting
    • If we are going to diecut your prints to a specific shape, please make this outline (the cut line) have a 100% Cyan 1pt stroke.
  • Foil Colors
    • We have a wide variety of foil stamping colors available. Please make the foil artwork 100% Yellow, and specify in the notes which color foil you’d like. If you have more than one color foil, you can choose any color and just specify in the notes for now.
  • Line Thickness & Font Sizes
    • It is best to keep line thickness at or above 0.5pt and fonts 4pt or above. However, some extremely thin sans-serif fonts or serif fonts with very thin serifs, may need to be thickened with a 0.15-0.25pt center weighted stroke to prevent them from washing out during the plating process.
