LAYING OUT YOUR DOCUMENT
The outer edge of the artwork is considered a (safety area) that is used for cutting.
No important text or images should be put within this area for safety. An 1/8 (.125) of an inch is the minimum required, but we always recommend you to use a 1/4 inch (.25) for better results.
Please design and submit your artwork as follows:
1- Start the project in actual size (unless otherwise noted)
2- Set project at 300 resolution
3- convert to CMYK (in photoshop, goto “IMAGE”, “MODE” then select CMYK)
4- Save as JPG (nothing else)
5- Remember to keep all critical text or images away from the edges atleast .25 of an inch.
Color Selection. When selecting colors, Please use the following code:
4:4 or Four over Four is the same as Full Color on both sides.
4:1 or Four over One is the same as Full color on one side and One color on the other side.
4:0 or Four over none is the same as Full color on one side and Nothing on the other side.
I hope this helps…
