Step 5 - Export Artwork
Export your finished artwork as a high resolution PDF (min. 300dpi / CMYK), ensuring that all fonts are outlined or embedded.
Ensure that your artwork canvas size is set up as detailed in Step 2 above:
• Oversize A4 - 535mm x 428mm
• Oversize A4 with 5mm Gusset
- 547mm x 431mm
Have the die-cut forme on the top layer with overprinting kept on so that the green lines do not appear on the finished job or knockout artwork below them.
If only using Photoshop to create your artwork delete the die-cut entirely before
flattening the layers and exporting.
Step 6 - Final PDF Files
We need you to send us TWO versions of your artwork (as illustrated to the right), one WITH the green Die-Cut Forme on Top of the artwork, the other WITHOUT. The size of each PDF is listed below depending on which die-cut Forme version you've chosen:
• CANVAS SIZE - 'Standard Shape'
- 535mm x 428mm
• CANVAS SIZE - 'Standard Shape with 5mm Gusset' - 547mm x 431mm
