Please PACKAGE the file and include all fonts and linked images. Please don’t use any third-party plug-ins—if they are used we’ll be unable to process your art.

Fonts and Line Rules

Please convert fonts to outlines (paths or curves). If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will default to a less attractive font, changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines eliminates this hazard.

Minimum Sizes (if free floating on the bag)

2-point lines or rules

8-point fonts. Thin serif font styles are not recommended.

Imprint Colors

Color tints/shades/tones may fluctuate up to 5% within a print run or reorder. PMS color matching is not available. PMS solid spot colors are converted to corresponding CMYK formulas to achieve close equivalents. Please consult a PANTONE-Plus Color Bridge-Coated guidebook to view how your PMS Solid Color will look once converted to CMYK.

Special Note About Our Printing Process

The Sublimation process allows for full-bleed imprint area on select bags. Please also add a ¼” bleed around your artwork. Also allow 1″ safety from the edge of the imprint area for logos and text. We have a thorough process because we want to ensure your satisfaction.
