Designing your label in PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS

If you are designing a label to submit for a custom printing order, please follow these guidelines if you are creating the label in Photoshop CS2 (or similar version):

Choose FILE>NEW>BLANK FILE

Enter your label demensions in INCHES, followed by a RESOLUTION of 300. For example, if you are designing a 3x3 label for print...the information you'd enter would be WIDTH 3 INCHES, HEIGHT 3 INCHES, RESOLUTION 300 pixels/inch. If you designing a full bleed label (color bleeds off the edge of the label) then you would add .03 to your label demensions...WIDTH 3.03 INCHES, HEIGHT 3.03 INCHES, RESOLUTION 300 pixels/inch.

Click OKAY and photoshop will create a canvas for you based on the above criteria. The ENTIRE canvas is your label - using layers of color, text and graphics, create your label exactly as you want it to print. (if bleeding over .03 please keep text the appropriate space from the label's edge).

TIP: do not use clip art or low resolution images found online. Stock art and illustrations can be purchased at very reasonable prices by going to www.istock.com or www.dreamstime.com. Make sure you are purchasing a large enough size of the graphic for printing, usually the medium to large size works best - it needs to be 300 dpi at the size you want it when place within your label)

When finished, save your label file as a psd file for future editing of the layers. Also save it as a jpg at the maximum quality setting. Click on the UPLOAD ARTWORK link to submit to us for printing...
