ARTWORK TIPS FOR RUBBER STAMPS

The preferred file types for Rubber Stamps are; JPEG or PNG but we also accept PDF, AI, PSD and EPS.

The artwork must be black and white only, with no greys, color, shading of 3D effects.

The black area in your image will be the STAMPED impression on the page. (The white area will be removed by the engraver)

Ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... we can edit the size to suit the stamp size.

300dpi resolution is preferable.

Avoid too much white space in the centre of the stamp as the background may be visible on the stamped impression.

Avoid thin lines.

Avoid using a font size less than 8pt.

 

 

ARTWORK TIPS FOR EMBOSSERS

The preferred file type for Embossers is Ai.
(Illustrator file with all text outlined : Select text > Shift+Command+O). 
Alternatively, we can also accept JPEG, PDF,  & PNG files.

The artwork must be black and white only, with no greys, color, shading of 3D effects.

The black areas in your image will be the raised part of the paper.

Ensure artwork is clear, crisp, high resolution and legible. The larger the file the better... we can edit the size to suit the stamp size.

300dpi resolution is preferable.

Thin fonts work best. When embossing a page, the paper folds up and around each letter/shape- this naturally creates a little thickness.

Avoid using a font size less than 8pt.
