Our Artwork Requirements

Our Artwork Requirements

We do require artwork to be supplied with the following requirements:

  • CMYK colour
  • High Resolution (300 dpi recommended)
  • Vectorised Images where applicable
  • Minimum 3mm Bleed
  • Saved as either a PDF or PNG file (Preferably single page PDF)

The best artwork takes into account the location of the label edge, bleed and safe gap areas when designing. There is an image above illustrating these design zones. Please take note of the following when designing your artwork:

  • If you require edge to edge printing, we will need you to provide at least 3 mm bleed to allow for a slight sheet shift when in the process of printing.
  • Bleed is where the background colour or graphic extends beyond the label edge to ensure there are no unwanted edges in the event the printer shifts in production. Industry standard print shift is 1.5mm.
  • A safe gap sits within 2 mm of the label edge and is there to ensure that your text/artwork is not too close to the edge of the label. Your main text and graphics should sit within this zone. Should the printer shift, your design will be protected from being printed off of the label edge.


If you wish to supply us with a print ready template, you can download our free PDF or Word templates and use theme as a guide. This will need to be saved in PDF format, with ample bleed (where required) and without visible cut lines or process colours. The first page of this document will be checked for alignment only in proofing.
