Print Specifications & Templates

How to use our templates:

  1. Click on the PDF icon to open the PDF template in your design software.
  2. Create a new layer that will serve as your design layer.
  3. Design your artwork in the design layer, using the template PDF as the guide layer.
  4. Ensure text and/or images do not appear in the blue (trim) or gold (bleed) areas of the template.
  5. Once your design is complete, turn off the guide layer so that it is not printed on your final product. If you are unable to turn off the guide layer, then you will need to format the artwork so that it completely covers the guide layer.
  6. Flatten all layers, embed fonts and save the file as a press quality PDF.
