Workflow 

Step1: DesignTemplate 

You will get a design template and a reference artwork to start yours.

 

Step2:  File Transferring  

Please outline all the text in your artworks before transfering files.

 

Step3:  Video Sample 

A free video sample base on your artwork will be sent to you to check everything until you get the final ones.

 

Step4:  Mass Production

The mass production will be started after the artwork is approval. Or you need a  physical PP sample to avoid dramas.

 
Tips:
 
1. Text: Please outline all the text in your artworks before transferring files.
It is very important to convert all text to "outlines" before transferring artworks. If we don't have some fonts in your artwork on our computers, the artwork will not be shown corretly on our computers.

2. Linked files:Transfer all linked files or embed them into your artwork.
If the linked files are lost, the artwork will not be shown correctly on our computers.
 
3. Color type and DPI: CMYK type, all raster art must be 350 DPI at imprint size, or higher.
Please note: 
1. By Photosshop adding some pixcels can't improve the photos' real quality, you have to look for real clear and quality images.
2. If you use RGB color type to deal with images, adding some lightness and sharping are better, due to change them to CMYK color type, they will lose some lightness and color details. 
3. If there are some spot colors on your artwork, please mark them by PANTONE * C. Only PMS(Pantone Matching System) is surpported at the largest arrange in China. And please only use C system, eg. PANTONE 186C for the red. 
Please don't use U system, eg. PANTONE 186U. Due to the U only suit for some special block colors and uncoated paper which is not regular.
Regarding the limited for spot color: less than 2C spot color is preferred. If you have already used CMYK, more spot colors means high cost and maybe exceed the printing machine limited.
 
4. Logo, vector foramt is preferred 
What is vector format?
 
5. Preferred File Format and Version: AI CS5 or lower.
Adobe Illustrator CS5 or lower (.AI / .EPS)
Adobe Photoshop CS5 or lower (.PSD / .EPS)
Please note: If your version is higher than CS5, please save as CS5 version. Same artwork maybe not same on different version.
If you use Photoshop as the platform, please retain the layered original file and editability, don't combine the layers.
 
6. Artwork Transferring: by www.wetransfer.com is preferred.
