Sizing and Bleed Information

Magnets may be designed in any size with straight edges or special die-cut shapes. All magnets MUST have a 1/8" bleed beyond the magnet trim size as well as a 1/8" inside margin. Important text or graphics cannot extend beyond the inside margin. Please include crop marks set at your desired trim size or, if using a special shape, show the die cut as a spot color labeled as “die cut.”


Print-Ready Artwork Requirements

Illustrator files:

  • Convert all fonts to outline
  • All linked images should be 300 dpi, CMYK and embedded into Illustrator document
  • All colors should be CMYK (not RGB or Spot Colors)
  • Limit use of transparency and do not set any elements overprint.

Photoshop files:

  • All photo images should be a minimum of 300 dpi, EPS or JPEG format
  • Line art or bitmap art should be a minimum of 600 dpi
  • All colors should be CMYK (not RGB or Spot Colors)
  • Photoshop EPS files need to be saved as “Binary”


We accept True Type and Open Type fonts. Please provide all fonts used, including all printer and screen fonts.



We print in 4-color process (CMYK). RGB images will be converted to CMYK. If you require a specific color match for a logo, please make sure it is provided in CMYK and matches Pantone’s Process Mix for that color. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR COLOR SHIFTS DURING CONVERSION TO CMYK.

NOTE: Some Pantone (PMS) colors do not separate to CMYK well. If the color match is critical, a separate “spot” PMS ink may be used at an additional cost.



Please make any large “black” areas (in logos, backgrounds, bold headlines) a “rich” black of C40, M30, Y30, K100. Small text should only be K100.
