GRAPHICS
Logos should be created in a vector based program such as Adobe Illustrator. Raster images such as JPG, TIFF, must be high resolution. 
Please DO NOT send files at 72 dpi to be placed at 100% (this includes most files from web sites) as this resolution is okay for screen viewing but not for printing. Our minimum dot is 1% but we suggest setting gradients at 2%-85%.

COLOR
Please refer to the PANTONE COATED color matching system when assigning spot colors to artwork.

For four color process jobs, indicate the Pantone color desired if applicable. If color matching is critical, we must have an accurate proof to match or we may require a proof on press. Convert all RGB images to CMYK. Delete all unused colors from the color palette.

LAYOUT
Most of our dies have 1/8" rounded corners. Please keep copy 1/16" away from the edge of the label.
If any images or a background color is to go all the way to the edge of the label, we need 1/16" bleed added to the outside of the die cut.

If you have any further questions after reading the artwork specifications, you may contact us via e-mail at info@rpmpress.com
