Simple answer. Basically, please keep everything you want printed inside of the red lines for your custom printed boxes and packaging.
Image Resolution: Minimum 300 dpi
When using images be sure that your resolution is set to 300 dpi. For most full-color and/or paper products such as hand fans, business cards, brochures, etc., high-resolution raster files will print well. Preferred file formats are .tif and Photoshop .psd files.
High resolution is typically defined as 300 dots per inch at the printed size.Our Art Department can convert non-printable/low resolution files into a high quality print, so don’t be worried if you don’t have exactly what is needed. Consult your Account Representative if you have questions about a specific file format or product.
Please note that we are unable to open MS Publisher files and they are not suitable for printing. Save them as a high-resolution 300 dpi .pdf.
Please remember to outline all fonts and embed all images 🙂
