Below you will find design specs for our products. We have provided this information for customers that are familiar with graphic design, or have hired a graphic designer (or have a designer on staff) who is requesting "design specs."
Don't worry if you are not familiar with this information. We have a team of graphic artists that will create your design for you based on whatever artwork or concept you describe. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail us or call us at 1-800-310-7393.
Bleeds: If your design needs a bleed (the ink goes all the way to the edge and does not have a white border on all four sides), please extend your background images/colors by .25" total (.125" per side) as the area to be trimmed. For example, if you are designing a 3" x 4" rectangle, your submitted design should be 3.25" x 4.25" (with your finished sticker size still being 3" x 4").
DPI: If possible, vector artwork (such as .ai or .eps files) is preferred; however, we welcome all artwork including raster designs (such as .psd or .jpg files). If you are submitting raster artwork, the ideal dpi resolution is 300 dpi (compressed into .zip format for larger file sizes). If 300 dpi is not possible, simply submit what you have and we will work with you to make your artwork 'camera-ready'.
Full Color vs. Spot Color: All magnets, posters, and coasters are always printed in full color (4-color process). Separations are not necessary. All stickers are available as spot color or full color (4-color process).
Pantone Colors: Pantone matches are available at an additional cost. Please contact us for details.
Screens: Screened colors are not generally recommended for spot color items (such as stickers), however we can print within the range of 15% - 85%.
