Any non-photographic content (including graphics and text) are best sent to us as vector-based PDFs or Adobe Illustrator (.AI) files. These make your lines crisp and clear when printed.
If you are sending artwork components (not a complete dieline file), please make sure:
- There are no cut or crop lines.
- All transparencies have been flattened.
- Any fonts are outlined (saved as shapes or vectors) when saving your designs.
To do this in Adobe Illustrator, select all text layers and choose Type → Create Outlines.
- All graphic elements included from other files must be embedded, not linked.
To do this in Adobe Illustrator, right click the element(s) in the Links palette and select "Embed File(s)".
