ARTWORK GUIDELINES
INK FLEXO
SILKSCREEN
Colors must be separated by at least 1/2” to allow for color
movement. Please note that some color overlapping may
occur. More than 1 spot color imprinting is not available on
some
products. Minimum requirement for line thickness is 1 stroke
point. Reverse out printing line thickness is 2 stroke points
to avoid losing fine details.
Color registration requirements are minimal, but do exist and
must be pre-approved. Please note that some color over-lapping may still occur. More than 1 spot color imprinting is not
available on some products. Minimum requirement for line
thickness is 1.5 stroke points.
Important Notes: Artwork with a border, large coverage and/
or fine print is not recommended as it may not produce a
good quality imprint. Boxed artwork exceeding 5” x 5” will
need approval. Submit for review.

More than 1 spot color imprinting is not available on some
products. Minimum requirement for line thickness is 1 stroke
point. Reverse out printing line thickness is 2 stroke points
to avoid losing fine details.

Color Magic is not subject to space requirements and is
therefore ideal for designs requiring multi-color and close
registration.
Color Magic is available as a CMYK Process Heat Transfer and
also as a Pantone® Match Heat Transfer.
CMYK Process Heat Transfer: Images should be in CMYK at a
minimum of 300 dpi and provided at actual size. Minimum
requirement for line thickness is 4 stroke points.
Pantone® Match Heat Transfer: For vector based art, Pantone® colors are preferred and will render a more vibrant
print. Please note 2 Pantone® color art is the same price
as CMYK artwork. More than 2 Pantone® colors will incur
additional charges, please see page 106 for pricing details.
Minimum requirement for line thickness is 1 stroke point.
Important Notes:
- With PMS match orders, the colors Black and White are
each considered a match.
- For best results, some minor adjustments may be required.
These minor adjustments will be noted on yourviewing file
proof for approval.
Additional Notes: Our imprinting processes operate in a post-production environment in which imprinting takes place on a product which is already constructed. In some cases folds and creases produced in manufacturing the bags result in some restrictions that may impact certain artwork’s printability and available imprint area. Also, artwork position on post-printed products
may vary slightly from product to product due to manual feeding.
