A good preperation of the artwork for carrier bags and packaging is very important. We ensure that all your packaging and carrier bags will be printed perfectly.
Our studio always will look wel at the provided artwork and if we can work with this. This means we check the quality of the photo’s / pictures (resolution) and the usability of the logo. If necessary we will inform you what we need to get the best results.
If received the usable artwork we will prepare the digital PDF-proof for approval. In this PDF-proof you see the printing in the line drawing. We also show you the printing colours that will be used.
Did you send us your own artwork? We will also check or it’s actually possible to print this artwork with the correct printing technique and material. Every printing technique and every material has its own
specific characteristics. If necessary, we will adjust the design so the printing results will be perfect. If you don’t have a design, we would be very happy to help you with this. Our colleagues of the studio are great graphic designers and we can create artwork ready to print.
When the PDF-proof is approved, we will finish the artwork so it will be ready for production. The production will check the artwork again, and after that they will sent us the final proof for approval. The printing plates will be produced only if we approve this proof.
Logos or texts
We need this vectored in Illustrator. A vector file is always sharp, also when the position will be enlarged. And With a vector file we can also make some adjustments, so the logo or text can be printed in the right colour or on the right way. You can ask the person that designed your artwork for a .AI or .EPS file.
When you use pictures or photos for your packaging, we need to receive them in 300 DPI. For example: the bag has a size of 30 x 40 cm, then we need the pictures or photos with size 30,6 x 40,6 cm in 300 DPI. You can send us the artwork in CMYK, grey tones or duo-tone, depends on the printing colours we have to print.
The best option for us is that you send the pictures in a Photoshop document. (.PSD)
Design with photos and pictures
When you will send us artwork with photos and pictures we recommend to send this vectored. For the best printing results it’s the best to only use pictures (resolution files) for photos.
Sending your own artwork:
You can ask us for a die cut so you can place your artwork on the digital bag by yourself.
We work with the newest version of Adobe:
- Adobe Indesign
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe Photoshop
Sending us artwork
When you send us the artwork we would like to receive the open documents. These are documents in In-Design or illustrator. When you send us the artwork, we need all files that are used. The easiest way is to send us the whole pack.
We don’t work with PDF-files. The PDF files are often wrongly exported, so we can’t do any
adjustments if necessary. We would like to ask you to send open documents, like illustrator or Indesign.
You can send artwork by mail under 6 MB. Do you have larger files? You can send the artwork to:
