ARTWORK AND TEMPLATES
If you are providing us with your own artwork there are certain factors that you should take into account to ensure that your product is produced with the highest quality and as quickly as possible. The following guidelines will help ensure a trouble free experience when ordering through Guru Labels.
Please Note: These guidelines must be observed when using our online
"Quick Quote" System to avoid incurring an additional fee.
Our prefered file format for print is a PDF saved as high quality. Other acceptable formats are ai, eps, psd or tif.
In general all files should be supplied as CMYK. If another format is required (ie PMS) you must notify our sales staff. Although all efforts are made, due to the nature of CMYK printing, no guarantees are made in regards to matching PMS colours or colours from existing printed materials.
When producing artwork with a coloured background that is to print to the edge of your product you should extend the image or colour 3mm beyond each edge. For example a rectangular label with dimensions of 30x40mm that is being printed to each edge would require a background with dimensions 36x46mm.
Similarly, with any elements such as text or photos that are to appear as part of the body of a product and are not intended to print to the edge, we recommend a 3mm space from the edge of the final product.
When placing raster images (psd, tif, jpeg etc) such as photos or drawings into artwork a minimum resolution of 300dpi should be used. If using a program such as Adobe Illustrator all placed images should be embedded.
When using raster images we recommend using tif or psd formats. If you choose to use jpeg images we recommend saving at as high a quality as possible.
To ensure that your artwork prints correctly please supply all files with fonts outlined (pdf, ai, eps)) or rasterised (psd). Even common fonts may vary from version to version. If a font changes due to a mismatch Guru Labels will take no responsibility.
