Guide & How to’s
Choosing the best material for your packaging can sometimes be difficult! Don’t worry! During your consultation stage with our product specialists, we will help determine the best material for your product even if you have already chosen a material when submitting your quote request.
To determine the correct box size you need, measure your product left to right (length), front to back (width) and bottom to top (depth). Add 1/8″ – 1/4″ to each dimension to give a little bit of wiggle room to your product!
For optimal printing results, please refer to the artwork submission guidelines outlined in the link below. All artwork must be set up as CMYK for print with a 1/8″ bleed. All fonts must be outlined to prevent being replaced by a default font, and all links must be embedded within the artwork. All images must be at least 300 ppi for optimal printing. We do not make corrections or alterations to customer artwork. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that artwork submission guidelines have been properly followed. You may choose to proceed to production in disregard of these guidelines at your own risk.
Rigid & Corrugated Packaging
Due to the nature of rigid and corrugated packaging is made of thick material, it is recommended to use internal dimensions. Using the internal dimensions guarantees the absolute correct amount of space needed to fit your products perfectly.
Folding Carton & Other Packaging
Packaging types made of thinner material like folding cartons or paper bags are generally okay to use external dimensions. However, because it is industry standard to use internal dimensions, it would be easier to stick with internal dimensions to avoid any future issues.
If you are having trouble getting the measurements for your packaging, you may reach out to your designated sales representative for some additional help.
In print, the colors of the CMYK space consist of four colors applied separately. Small-sized elements can be printed out of focus. Large elements give the best results.It’s crucial that the minimum height of the text is 8 points. Otherwise, it might not be possible to read.
