Artwork Tips

Setting up artwork for cardboard box printing is a key step that directly influences the quality and accuracy of the final output. It requires attention to detail and adherence to specific guidelines to ensure seamless production.

Design software and templates: The first step in setting up a cardboard box pre-press file is to choose the appropriate design software and templates. At BookPrintingChina, we provide detailed templates and guidelines for various box styles and dimensions. To make sure that the design files are compatible with our printing processes.

Bleed and safety margins: When creating the pre-press file for your cardboard box, you need to incorporate bleed and safety margins to accommodate any variations in the cutting and folding processes. Bleed extends the design beyond the trim edge, preventing any white borders from appearing. While safety margins ensure that essential design elements are not compromised during production.

Color mode and resolution: Selecting the correct color mode and resolution to achieve accurate and vibrant printed results. The pre-press file should be set to CMYK color mode to ensure that the colors translate accurately from the digital design to the printed output. Additionally, the resolution of images and graphics should be set to a minimum of 300 dpi to maintain crisp and clear details.

File format and export settings: The pre-press file should be saved in the appropriate file format, such as PDF. With the necessary export settings to preserve the integrity of the design elements. It is important to outline fonts, embed images, and flatten transparencies. To ensure that the file is print-ready and free from any potential issues during production.

Proofing and approval process: Before sending the pre-press file to custom cardboard box manufacturer, you need to carefully proofing. This involves reviewing the design for accuracy, color consistency, and structural integrity to identify and address any potential issues before approvaling to the printing stage.
