Find the answers to common questions

As a team, we are acutely aware that we can occasionally be a little long winded when we talk about stickers, labels and the like. However, we do believe there are some great questions that have been asked of us over the past 15 years that are of interest to others.

We’ve gathered the answers and some additional information here to help you navigate your way.

What types of files can I use for my artwork?
The safest and most stable file formats to use when submitting your artwork are .pdf or .eps.
Always use CMYK mode when saving your files for a more accurate colour representation.
We recommend a resolution of at least 300dpi at actual size.
Unfortunately, no. Once an image has lost it’s quality, it is impossible to get it back.
A cut line indicates the size and shape of your sticker, label or decal.
A trim line indicates the size and shape of your sticker, label or decal, while a safe zone indicates a buffer zone on the inside of your cut line of about 2mm where no critical text or graphics should be placed.
Yes! Don’t forget to add a 3mm bleed to your artwork. By doing this, you ensure that even if your print moves slightly during the cut process, that your artwork will continue seamlessly to the edge. This is a standard practice in all print processes.
It’s a good idea to convert fonts to outlines to avoid any font, tracking or style changes.

In Adobe Illustrator, select your text, go to ‘Type’ in the menu and choose ‘create outlines’.

Linked files are external files such as images or graphics, that are not physically embedded in the main document, but are referenced in it.
