Formica Envision™ Artwork Guidelines

File Types
In order of preference we accept PDF, EPS, TIFF, JPG, and PSD files.  Embed fonts or convert to outlines before saving.  We can accept native files from Adobe CSS or MS Office software but prefer you export it to a PDF to ensure the integrity of your layout.  We recommend using PDF/X-3 format when possible.  If unable to make a PDF be sure to “package” your file for an outside printer with all fonts and linked images.
Resolution

Pixel based – 200-300 DPI is best for most applications.  Larger resolutions just make the file larger and take more processing time without adding visual quality.  Submitting files with a lower resolution than 100 can make the image look pixilated and blurry especially if the file needs to be enlarged.  Files that need to be enlarged more than 200% should be at least twice the resolution (200 DPI+) to help ensure the quality of the final print.

Vector Based – If you’re submitting images that are vector based, resolution will not be affected by scaling and the file data size is typically small in comparison to pixel based images.

Color
When possible please prepare files in the CMYK color space. Files submitted using Spot/PMS colors that don't have a color profile embedded will be converted to CMYK for printing. We will attempt to match the intended color as close as possible, but there could be a slight color shift in the finished product.
File Size (Bleed)
Pixel based – 200-300 DPI is best. Most projects can be built using a minimum of .5" bleed on all sides of image area.  Image must be submitted at full size (meaning the size it will be printed on the laminate sheet). Final image area must be indicated using crop lines.
Safety Zone
Do not place any critical images or text beyond the safety zone, which is at least 1/8" from the final trim size, in order to avoid it getting cut off when the finished piece is trimmed.
Borders
If your graphic files contain a border, the border must have a minimum 1" from all surrounding edges.  If you leave less than 1", your finished product may result in the appearance of unequal borders from top to bottom and from side to side.  This is due to the final cutting process in which some “draw” or “slippage” might occur.  Ideally, you want to create the border with 1" from all surrounding edges.
Typographical/Grammar Errors
Make sure you have proofread your artwork to ensure the spelling and grammar is correct.  We will not be held responsible for typographical or grammar errors.
