How to Measure Labels
To determine the size of the label you need, there are certain considerations to keep in mind:
Once you've determined the label dimensions you need, visit our quote page to select the size that's perfect for your products.
Please note that it makes good sense to check your print labels design (and spelling) before sending them to us - corrections or modifications made after the proofing stage will incur extra charges, as we need to repeat the entire pre-press process to incorporate the new files.
Any raster artwork needs to be a minimum of 300 DPI. Click here for more information.
Our presses handle CMYK mode only - all RGB images will be converted to CMYK, which can cause extreme shifts in color. If in doubt, please take advantage of our free press proof (shipping charges apply), which allows you to see how the finished print labels will look before going into production. All Pantone colors that you submit will be converted to their CMYK equivalents.
Please be sure to embed all placed images in your documents at a minimum of 300 DPI. Clear here for more information regarding images and links.
When submitting art for spot color orders, use vector graphics over raster graphics for the best quality. This allows images to be easily manipulated and editable. Colors used in vector graphics are solid, without variation. Since vector graphics are mathematically based, resolution is never an issue.
Missing fonts or substituted fonts can create errors in your document, so please be sure to convert all of your fonts to outlines.
All of our dies have three parts: Bleed line (outer blue dotted line), Cut line (black middle line), and Clear Space (inner blue dotted line). If there are images or color blocks that "bleed" (extend to the edge of the label), then we require an extra 1/16" image past the label edge to ensure the image or color meets the label edge. All other text and graphics should be contained within the clear space line, a 1/16" print margin inside the label edge, otherwise any text or graphics that are not meant to bleed could be cut during the manufacturing process. Click here for detailed example of bleeds and clear space. Die lines are available to help you ensure your artwork meets these specifications. Need a specific size die line? E-mail us!
For the best results, we recommend that you compress your files before uploading, especially if they are large. Compressing files provides for easy downloads and takes up less space. They are also less susceptible to file corruption than files that have not been compressed. You can also use file-sharing options such as yousendit.com and Dropbox. Examples of compressed files are .zip and .sit files.
White ink can be applied in many different ways to enhance your design. Including a white layer in your design will allow us to see where you want white ink to print. We suggest creating an individual file in your design labeled “White Layer” with a 100% Magenta fill for areas your design needs white ink printed. We recommend backing all color and barcodes on clear materials and all barcodes for chrome materials.

One of our eco-friendly options that is actually made of stone—no trees are used. This material should not laminated.
This is another material specially designed for the wine industry. It is paper-based with a high-gloss white finish. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.
This material has the same water and oil-resistant properties as our White BOPP and Clear BOPP, but has the "mirror-like" look of shiny chrome.
Best suited for wine labels, this is a white paper stock with a dull matte finish. It is not suitable for lamination and is therefore not waterproof. Same adhesive and liner as Estate #9.
This is the clear version of the Polypropylene (BOPP) material. It has the same waterproof qualities as the White BOPP. It provides more of a "no label" look and is also suitable for window stickers (where reverse printing of the image allows the label to be applied to the inside of a glass window and be viewed from the outside).
This is a great option for wine labels, gourmet foods or applications where a textured finish is desired. Being a paper stock, it's not as water-resistant or durable as BOPP, but its light cream color and textured feel add a touch of the "unusual" to the right product. It features a special adhesive (removable in 100+ degree hot water) and a stronger liner particularly suited to machine application. Not suitable for lamination.
This material will make your labels shine! Suitable for most labeling applications, it has a strong adhesive backing and must be laminated. Choose glossy laminate to make your label designs pop, or matte for a unique, elegant look.
This is a recycled 100% post consumer waste material. It is a 55# paper material that is a wonderful option if an “earthy” appearance is desired. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water. It is not suitable for lamination; therefore, it is not water or oil resistant.
This material is the same as our standard BOPP, but has a special, "less aggressive" adhesive designed to allow the label to be removed or re-positioned after application. Depending on the surface it will be applied to, customer testing is strongly recommended. We can provide samples for this purpose.
Quite the unique material! Yes, it is woven satin acetate cloth. Think wine or spirit labels! This material will make your product packaging POP. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.
A white, 3mil film that is better suited for squeezable applications. This material has proven to work well in a variety of applications, so you can be confident it will perform well for you.
A great “green” choice, this 60# vellum is 100% recycled with 100% post consumer waste material. Cannot be laminated. Is neither water nor oil-resistant. The stronger liner is well suited for machine application. Depending upon face, substrate, water temperature and dwell time, label may be removed in hot water.
This is our most commonly used material and is suitable for most applications. It's a polypropylene material with a permanent adhesive. It is impervious to water and oils, and is particularly suitable for bath and body products, as well as food containers.
A more environmentally friendly alternative to White BOPP. The PLA stands for Polylactic Acid (a biopolymer made from corn rather than petrochemicals). Similar look and feel to BOPP and suitable for most applications, but should not be used directly on candle containers.
This is our most substantial material. The vinyl is thicker than BOPP, and is most suitable for outdoor applications where greater strength and durability are needed, or where lengthy exposure to the elements is an issue.
We offer this window decal option as an alternative to static cling. The face stock is clear with excellent clarity. The adhesive is an ultra-removable featuring excellent weatherability and UV resistance. It removes cleanly from a wide variety of substrates without staining or ghosting. Why worry about static clings staying on when you can have removable adhesive there to hold it in place?
High gloss is our most popular laminate. It is the least expensive option and provides protection for the label and a high gloss shiny finish.
The Matte Laminate provides your label with a dull, non-glossy finish. Some customers consider this achieves a more "natural" look.
This is a gloss laminate that is designed to work with most over-printing thermal transfer printers. We do recommend you get samples first to test through your own printer before placing an order with this laminate.
As the name implies this is best used for labels that will be used outdoors. It has a high gloss finish with excellent UV resistance. It is best paired with our vinyl material for the most durable outdoor label.
