Here at Label Image, we provide design advice on the premises, taking your idea and concept from the very early stage through to a finished piece of art. We give every client unique approach to each individual design. Clients are happy with the turn around time in which we produce artwork and are often excited with the first draft that we created. We will work together with client and ensure that the artwork is made to satisfy and fulfill its purpose. We have ranges of design and label sample for you to see, call us or send us an email if you would like to receive some material sample for your label requirements.
Our graphic art department is PC based, mainly using Corel Draw and Adobe Software. We use this program as we need higher quality result and better colour separation accuracy.
We do not accept Quark Files or Publishers, however if this is all you have please convert all text to path/outline and save both PDF and EPS file and send them to us.
Please note that any JPEG or GIF files you send may not be suitable for printing due to compression factors. Any files received in Word, Excel etc may only be used for simple design mainly text and will be re-drawn to meet our printing requirement.
If you have large files that cannot be emailed, you can come to our premises at Unit 2/68 Guthrie Street, Osborne Park, WA, 6017 and say Hi to us while bringing your CD or flash disk that has your artwork inside. Otherwise please call us and we will show you how to send your large file via website such as hightail.com or mailbigfile.com.
When designing artwork for us, please use vector-based programs only (Corel or Illustrator CS) - doing this will allow better printing results in terms of sharpness, separations and speedy proofing. Also, don't forget to convert all text to outline/curves, alternatively you can provide us fonts you use in designing the artwork. If you have photographic or full colour designs, it needs to be at least 300 dpi and should be embedded into the art file.
When designing Flexographic labels please do not make any artwork that has a dot size smaller than 10% (tints no less than 10%) to accomodate our plate making process. Every artwork supplied for Flexographic will be imported to either Corel or Illustrator for trapping before negatives and plates are made.
When designing for foiled labels please do not create any artwork that has screen work (tints/gradients), fine curves or font size smaller than 6pt, also close registration of borders or text does not suit to this type of printing process either.
Please design your artwork with bleed (bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming, where the bleed is the area to be trimmed off). Allow a minimum of 2mm for this to ensure a clean edge of finished print.
Please set up your label as CMYK and or PMS, our products are bulk printed and as such, we are unable to offer exact colour matching. Colours may vary from day to day, press to press and during run. We will try to match the colour as close as possible but will not be able to guarantee exact colour matching.
Please remember to convert all fonts to curves to ensure your font does not change. Failure to do this will increase mistake and slow down the approval process.
Last but not least, please save your artwork as PDF (Press Quality) or as an EPS file.
If you have had your job printed before by another supplier, please supply us the same sample as this will help to provide better colour matching for your brand identity.
