How to Design Print-Ready Files

mouseOne thing we’ve learned over the years is that people are awesomely creative. Whether you already have artwork or will be designing it on this project journey, the below will ensure the process goes quickly and smoothly. Here’s how you can prepare your artwork for the printing press.

  1. Measure your product or package for label size.
  2. If you don’t have art or if you’re uncomfortable making your own, we offer design services. If you choose to do your own, keep reading for more tips!
  3. Choose a design program. We prefer Adobe Illustrator, but there are lots of options. If your design requires white ink, you’ll want to make sure your image is vector, and that is best done in Illustrator.
  4. Use a CMYK or Pantone color profile. Never use RGB or HEX for print artwork.
  5. Design your label on an artboard with 0.25-inch bleeds on all sides, and make sure your art extends into these areas. This is the cutting area, so be sure nothing important gets cut off here.
  6. Either outline your text or send us your fonts with the artwork, and we’ll take care of the rest.
  7. Link images, graphics, or anything that’s embedded in the design so we can open it on our end without losing those images.
  8. Save your files as 300 dpi or higher to make sure the image is nice and crisp.
  9. Save as a high-quality PDF, or simply provide us with the Illustrator or EPS files.
