We want you to be thrilled with the finished article when you get your new labels and while we don't offer an in-house design service, we are able to offer plenty of advice on how to achieve a fabulous result. Just ask! If you don't already have artwork, we do have a graphic designer available, who for a reasonable charge, can produce artwork to a 'print ready' state.
We are pleased to offer a "no setup cost" service for artwork that meets the following common specifications. Please note however that any artwork that does not meet these specifications and requires amendment will incur additional charges at the rate of $15 + GST per 15 minutes. Here's what we need...
Full colour photo quality finish labels on either paper or vinyl (learn more):
Note that if your design or colour requirements fall outside the capabilities of our thermal transfer printer, full colour labels may be recommended as an alternative. In any event, images sometimes need modification to make suitable for printing by thermal transfer, so setup costs for some budget labels may be unavoidable.
Upon receipt of your artwork, we'll produce a proof of the finished product and request your approval prior to production. You can opt to receive your proof either as a PDF or as a real printed label at no additional cost. Printed proofs are recommended where colour matching is critical. Colour shades differ slighly from printer to printer depending on the way the file is created, printer settings and the printing process. This is especially important if you have not supplied your artwork in CMYK colour as shifts will often occur when RGB (computer colour) is converted to CMYK (printing ink colour), or you have chosen to print Budget labels which use a limited range of colours.
The most common problems we encounter with client artwork are low resolution jpeg and gif files and files submitted without text converted into outline paths. If you have any doubts or questions about the requirements detailed above, give us a call or use our contact form and we'll get it sorted.
Select this option if your label requires a full colour range, high quality finish on either photo quality paper or vinyl.
Select this option if your label is a simple, stencil-like image on self-adhesive paper with up to 3 printed colours and colour match is not essential.
