Graphic Requirements

To make sure your mission goes like clockwork...

... we ask you to consider the following points for the data:

  • Save graphics as vector (see below)
  • Please convert fonts into curves/paths/sign paths
  • The resolution of photos should be at least 300 dpi

Vector Images

Pixel Images

At first Sight... beispiel beispiel
The difference becomes visible when magnified: Advantage of the vector: The graphic does not show any loss of quality even when magnified more than 16 times. This is different with pixel graphics: The stair effect is clearly visible, the quality "suffers".
What does this mean for the production of your label? A vector graphic can be further processed without any problems: No matter what size, colour or shape - it can be easily fitted and modified to fit your label. The same applies to fonts, by the way, every character is a vector. Thus, a vector graphic allows for quick and easy work. Pixel graphics must be manually traced for further processing in order to generate a vector graphic. Depending on the motif and template, this is a complex and time-consuming process step. In addition, a 100% match between vector and original cannot be guaranteed, as the course of an edge is blurred by the stair effect (see above).
Which file format for which image type? .ai, .fh, .cdr, .indd, .eps .jpg, .bmp, .gif, .tif, .psd
