Please submit art work as a “Press Quality” PDF

Submit artwork at actual size

Indicate the cut/die line(s) clearly

Verify art meets Guidelines



Bleed is the distance the ink extends past the finished edge of the product before final cutting. Standard minimum bleed is 1/8″ (.125″). Raster files must allow for the required bleed when submitted because they are not editable like vector files.

Cut Margin

Cut margin is the minimum space required between elements of art and the finished edge of the product. Size and product are the two main factors that determine cut margin.

Note that bleed borders must exceed our minimum cut margin.
