Color Mode

All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK color mode. All black and whites artwork and/or images must be provided in grayscale color mode.

Borders

We do not recommend borders due to possible shifting in the cutting process, which may cause borders to appear uneven

What’s Bleed

Bleed is the portion of the product that will be trimmed off when it is cut to final size

Why Bleed

Bleed ensures a continuation of colors, images, and designs past the final trim size to prevent imperfections from possible cutting shifts. We require all files to be built to the full bleed dimensions specified for each trim size.

Templates
