*IMPORTANT* Envelope Artwork Guidelines
It is required that there be 1/16" overbleed and color wrap around onto the back of the envelope to allow for movement throughout the bindery process.
Custom printed envelopes are a great way to sepereate yourself from the crowd of generic mail outs.
1. What type of files can I upload for my envelopes?
We recommend saving your envelope design as a pdf
You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, psd, tif, tiff, eps, ai, and png
We prefer that you send .PDF and .EPS files with outlined fonts. These files are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to add crop marks and flatten your envelope files before uploading.
2. What color mode should my envelopes be?
If you send us an RGB file for your envelopes, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job. You should always start and finish your envelope designs in CMYK color mode.
3. What resolution should my envelope files be?
All files should be 300dpi. Any low resolution files for envelopes will be placed on hold until we receive new files, slowing your turn-around.
4. How should I set up my bleed and crop marks for envelopes?
Bleed must extend further than the cut line. Using one of our envelope templates can help you visualize this. Please keep all text and anything you do not want cut at least .125" away from the cut line. When sending an .eps or .pdf, make sure you include crop marks so we can cut the job correctly.
