We have put together this production checklist for you to look over before final submission. If you are working with a designer on your project, please provide them the checklist to ensure they know about artwork requirements.

Artwork that is intended to extend past the rolled edges extends through the indicated red bleed lines. The same goes for artwork on the lip.

All photo-based elements should be at least 300 dpi in resolution.

Separate layers for different customization options have been created. (PRINTING: place all printed elements here; FOIL: place all foil elements here; SPOT UV: place all spot UV elements here, etc.)
Appropriate swatches from the legend have been used to indicate customization options.

Save the file using Adobe Illustrator default settings.
We recommend you print out the artwork on your home printer to reconfirm you’re happy with the layout.
