Art Checklist

When submitting artwork, it is essential to include all of the following elements upon first submission to insure effective turn-around.


1. FONTS

Landmark will need all fonts used in your label art. If you are sending postscript fonts, please be sure to provide both screen and printer fonts. Do not forget to include all fonts used in graphic files placed in your art. If you are unable to provide us with the fonts, you will need to convert all text to outlines, curves or paths.

Remember, once the copy has been converted to outlines, we will no longer have the ability to edit the text on your label.

When creating reverse labels (white or light type on a dark background), please make sure the type, especially the ®’s and ©’s, are sufficient to print.

2. EPS/TIFF/PSD/JPG/BMP
Please make sure you include all the source files (minimum of 300 dpi) used in creating your label, even if you have embedded it in the final art.

3. LINES/RULES
All lines need to be 1/2 point minimum. If your original art is to be scaled down, be sure the rules are large enough to be at least 1/2 point after reduction. If you are using the rules on a reverse label, we prefer the rules to be 1 point, to keep from filling in when your label is printed.

4. INK COLORS
All colors should be defined as process or spot colors. Please convert all RGB colors to CMYK before submitting your art.

5. GRADIENTS
It is highly recommended the minimum screen be 5%. If it is below 5%, the gradient may not reproduce correctly, resulting in an undesirable finished product.
