Tips

How To Convert Fonts To Outlines (Adobe Illustrator)

You can convert fonts to outlines in Illustrator by highlighting all text with the "Selection Tool" and selecting:

Type > Create Outlines. This will ensure all fonts in your artwork look correct at our end, and our software doesn't substitute your selected fonts.

 

How To Check the DPI of an Image (Adobe Photoshop)

You can check the DPI of an image in Photoshop by selecting:

Image > Image Size. It is recommended that you do not use any images straight off web pages, as they are low resolution (72 DPI) and will produce an inferior quality sticker (blurry & pixelated). TIF's are the recommended file format as they are higher quality and compatible with both Macs & PCs. We require 300 DPI.

 

How To Convert Images To CMYK Colour (Adobe Photoshop)

You can convert images to CMYK in Photoshop by selecting:

Image > Mode > CMYK Colour. This will ensure your final product colours look exactly like the file you sent us. Industry standard sticker printing is done in CMYK, (Representing the ink values Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black). RGB (Red, Green & Blue) mode represents the colours you see on a computer or TV screen.
