Type Specifications

All fonts should be sent with your file and should include the screen and printer fonts. If fonts are not sent, we will attempt to match fonts as closely as possible.

Minimum Font Sizes

Barcode Specifications

Barcodes should not be less than 85% in size. Also, there should be at least 1/8″ quiet space (white area) between the barcode and the edge of the label.

Bleed Specifications

Any images or colors that bleed off the label will need to extend 1/16″ past the die cut. The bleed accounts for any movement that might occur when the die cuts the stock. Images that do not bleed off of the label need to be a minimum 1/8″ inside of and away from the die cut.

Color Specifications

Labels can be printed in seven color process or spot colors. Please provide the PMS colors for all spot color printing. Four color process labels must be saved in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta,Yellow, and Black), not RGB (Red, Green, Blue) mode. Images saved in RGB mode can result in color shift when converted to print in CMYK.
