RESOLUTION:

COLOR MODE:

If you send us an RGB file, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job. All color artwork and/or images should be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) color mode. All black & white artworks and/or images must be provided in grayscale color mode. Heavy black ink might cause smearing.

RGB vs CMYK

BLEED:

Bleed must extend further than the cut line. Please keep all text and anything you do not want cut at least .125" away from the cut line. No borders are recommended, as shifting in the cutting process may make borders appear uneven.
