Design guidelines
We recommend using our templates and guides for preparing your print-ready PDF.

You can download our guides and templates in the template section. Remember to delete the template layers before exporting your design to PDF.

If you already have a design, no worries; we accept other file formats, including JPEG, PNG, or EPS.

For photographic content, high-resolution JPEGs are recommended, preferably without compression. For graphics or text-based content, we recommend print-ready, vector-based PDFs. For content that is a combination of graphics and photography, we suggest using print-ready PDFs to ensure the best quality.

Use CMYK as the colour mode.

Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2). If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.

Resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.

Add 3 mm bleed and keep 4 mm safety margin

During production, there might be a slight cut deviation. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Add a 3 mm bleed around all edges of your design.
  • Keep important elements 4 mm away from the edge or folding lines.
  • Avoid using borders or frames on smaller formats like labels or business cards.
Text and fonts specifications (Min. font size is 6 pt)

For this product, the minimum font size is 6 pt. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Fonts must be embedded or outlined.
  • If your design contains small black text, make sure it is 100 % black (Cyan: 0 Magenta: 0 Yellow: 0 Black: 100).

Note that we don't check spelling or typographical errors.

Check line thickness.

Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.

Check your artwork for overprint.

Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Centre.

Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

Force Colour Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Colour Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

Using a border/frame is not recommended

It is recommended to count with a margin of error when stacks of copies are trimmed during the production process. This slight cutting deviation is usually not noticeable, nevertheless, we recommend avoiding adding borders smaller than 20 mm in your design for any product smaller than an A4 (210 x 297 mm). Otherwise, the design might end up looking off-centre.

  • • To introduce people to your business

Which production techniques do we use?
  • Your product will be printed with 1 solid Pantone Matching System (PMS) colour. This option tends to be the most economic choice and is ideal if your logo is monochromatic. Your design can be submitted with max. 1 PMS colour.

  • Your product will be printed with 2 solid Pantone Matching System (PMS) colours. This technique is best when you have a dual colour design. Your design can be submitted with max. 2 PMS colours.

  • Full colour printing is almost always used when there are many colours in a design. Pictures, for example, are designs with a lot of colours. Full colour exists of the following colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black). The colours are mixed while printing, so almost any colour can be created with CMYK.

Full colour or PMS colours?

PMS Colours

PMS Colours

PMS stands for Pantone Matching System, in which colours are identified by numbering. As a result, a PMS colour is exactly the same at every printer. When opting for PMS printing, your order is specifically set, printed, and finished to provide the utmost accuracy in representing your colours.
If your design has more than three colours, full colour printing is the ideal choice.

Full Colour

Full Colour

Full colour printing is the more cost-effective option and entails the use of four colours: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK). It involves combining multiple print orders onto a single printing sheet to optimise efficiency and reduce costs. With full colour printing, you can enjoy a diverse palette of colours, shades, and gradients.
Keep in mind that slight colour variations may arise between different print runs due to disparities in printing equipment, materials, and environmental factors.
