Artwork Guidelines

Artwork guidelines for custom labels include the appropriate fonts, logo, art, image files, barcodes, correct platform, bleed applications, colours and delivery to achieve the highest printing standards.


Please supply any fonts used in your job.

Note: Files with fonts 'converted to paths' or 'outlined' cannot be easily edited, therefore if changes are required additional charges may be incurred

Logo Files

For optimum quality, all vector (line art) logos must be supplied in their original file format, ie. EPS or Adobe Illustrator. Logos supplied as JPEGs (made up of dots) will not produce a good result when printed.

Art Files

EPS or PDF formats are acceptable. Please include all support or linked files and specify any PMS colours required. If your art is created in Photoshop please supply the layered file (.psd), i.e. keeping image and type layers seperate.

Image Files

Please supply all images as separate files (even if they are embedded in the file we still require them). Images should be supplied at 300dpi, and will be printed CMYK unless PMS Duotone / Monotone are specified in the file.


Please submit barcode numbers with your artwork. We will reproduce your barcode using our software. Barcodes will be printed at 85-100% magnification to GS1 guideline specifications.




A bleed of 3mm is required


Adobe CC Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign


The maximum number of colours that can be used is 8, or 7 if a varnish or laminate is specified.


Artwork up to 10MB in size can be emailed to your rep. For files larger than 10MB, please contact our team
