We pride ourselves on being your end-to-end label solution. Following these specs will ensure you get your labels printed quickly and cost effectively. If you need artwork created our graphic designers can get it prepped quickly.

Please review the artwork specifications below prior to sending your label design. Please note that once your label has been uploaded, any changes will require customer approval of a new proof and may lead to revision charges. Be sure to check your artwork thoroughly before sending if you want it printed rapidly.

File Formats

Our preferred file type is .ai (Adobe Illustrator native format). We also accept .eps, and .pdf formats.
All label sizes must be in Imperial units of measure (inches).


For best results, all colors should be assigned CMYK, not RGB or Pantone.
RGB and Pantone colors will be automatically converted to CMYK, which will lead to noticeable shifts in color.

Learn more about the difference between CMYK, RGB and Pantone.


All fonts must be converted to paths, curves, or outlines. This is also referred to as flattened or converted to shapes.
Flattening text is important because it allows us to print your file regardless of whether or not the font type is installed with our software.

Not sure how to do this? Check out our guide on how to outline or flatten fonts.

File Naming

In order to prevent delays, it is best to name your submitted file something easy to understand and that accurately described the file. (e.g. toilet_cleaner_12oz.)
This allows us on both ends to easily keep track of which file is which, and we can differnetiate between designs.


If there are colors or images that extend to the edges of the label, then bleeds will need to be included. Bleeds will need to be 1/16 inches (0.0625 inches) on all sides of the document past the dieline. All other text or design elements will need to be within a 1/16 inch print margin.
Including bleed when appropriate is essential in allowing for small shifts during the cutting process. Learn more about bleeds in label printing and how to use it.

Clear Space

Clear space should be included within the finished size of at least 1/16 inches away from the dieline. Only background colors and patters should be allowed within this space to provide bleed.
Providing some clear space away from the dieline will help ensure that any design elements do not get trimmed off during the cutting process.

Learn more about clear space from our guide, how to work with clear space.


All label files should be made using 300 DPI for best results. Anything below 300 DPI may create a fuzzy image and will hurt the quality of your printed label overall.
