Resources for Designers

Artwork prep resources for our professional design partners

We get to see a lot of beautifully designed labels cross our presses, and we love seeing the expression of every designer's creativity. That said, when it comes to submitting custom label artwork to Planet Label that will cruise on through pre-press review and approval on the first try, there are some definite do's and don'ts to configuring, preparing and sending your artwork files. We're here to provide you the specific direction and resources you'll need to keep your (or your client's) project on track and moving forward. Our goal is likely the same as yours: to get those beautiful custom-printed labels in-hand, on the product and on the shelf to wow target customers as quickly as possible!

Artwork prep resources for our professional design partners.

As far as we're concerned, part of our job is to help make your job as easy as possible, so we've compiled a sizeable toolkit for you to help create, configure, and submit that custom label artwork with a minimum of fuss. Here are the resources we've collected for you.

Artwork specifications

Covering topics from accepted file types to image resolution, color conversions to crop marks, this is your place to get the in-the-weeds details for setting your artwork up for success. View our artwork setup guide.

Pre-screen artwork validation

When you’ve got artwork you think is ready to submit, run it through our pre-screen validator to ensure it meets some of our most-often- missed specifications. Our pre-press team will still do their own validation after you submit the file, but this step will save you time, it'll save us time, and it'll help keep your project on track.

Frequently asked questions

While you might come up with a problem we've never had to solve, it's increasingly likely we've covered at least some of your questions with other designers before. Cruise through our FAQs and see if we can help answer something on your mind. If not, we’re only a chat, phone call, or email away.

We're trying to help your label look awesome.

What makes Planet Label different is that we really care. You're not just another designer; it's not just another label. You're trying to tell a story, and we want to help it come to life. No matter if this is your first time through the process, or if you're a seasoned pro, we're here for you.

VALIDATE YOUR FILES.

Use our pre-screen validator before submitting your artwork to Roastar. It costs nothing, and it can help find some of the big "gotcha" issues before you send your files along, saving everyone time and effort in the long run.
