Printing digitally gives us the ability to go to press very quickly if the electronic files are set up properly. We can help you set up your correctly to prevent any delays.
All new jobs will receive a PDF proof via email so you can see what your artwork will look like. Colors on PDF proofs cannot be guaranteed to match with 100% accuracy. If you want to see a printed proof from our press there is a $50 charge per version. We recommend this if your job is color sensitive.
We prefer vector art .ai or .eps files. Any other files (.jpg, .psd, .png) will need to be converted to an Adobe Illustrator file to be printed which we can do for you. We require you send us the raw files used in creating your label to get the best quality. Please package, include any fonts, or include a pdf file.
Barcodes have special requirements to be readable by a Point of Sale scanner. Barcodes are most readable in black and white format. Red should never be used for barcodes. Barcodes should be at least .25 inch high with 80% magnification. They need at least 1/8 inches on each side of the barcode for a quiet zone. Barcodes should include the text associated with the symbol in at least 3 point font.

Windout direction refers to how the roll of labels will be produced so that the labels are facing the right direction at the time of application. It is only necessary to specify a windout direction when the labels are going to be applied by a machine to your products. This ensures the applicator is receiving and dispensing the labels in the correct direction on the packaging they are being applied to. If you are hand applying your labels you do not have to worry about the windout direction.
Yes, we can. All of your labels will be quoted and printed as a four-color process (CMYK). If you have a special color to match, please let us know. We will get as close as we can to your Pantone color.
To reproduce full-color images, typical printing processes use four colors of ink. The four inks are placed on the label in layers of dots that combine to create the illusion of many more colors. CMYK refers to the four ink colors used by the printing press. C is cyan, M is magenta, Y is yellow, and K is black.
Pantone colors are frequently used for spot-color label printing.
All of our labels are produced on rolls, this allows you to choose whether or not you want to apply your labels by hand or machine. We do not have the capabilities of producing labels on sheets.
