We like it when our customers get creative in creating artwork to print their labels (Lexie even has his favorite artwork hanging on the refrigerator here.). But there are just a few guidelines we need you to follow to ensure your labels and stickers print perfectly:
- Save files at 300 dpi or greater.
- Take photos using the highest resolution (1,500 to 2,000 pixels) with the compression grade set at superfine.
- Use CMYK colors.
- Don’t compress images for emailing or convert them to thumbnails.
- We prefer EPS or PDF files; however, we can convert from JPG, TIFF, and GIF.
- Artwork that has not been flattened provides the best results for printing labels.
- Embed text into the file or change the fonts to outlines.
- Use fonts that are at least 5 points in size for the best results.
- The bleed minimum setting for printing labels is .125″.
