Tips For Better Silk Screening

  1. Use clear, sharp type, that does not contain broken or fuzzy characters.

  2. If copy is prepared larger than actual size, make sure that it has extra space, so when reduced there will be adequate spacing between characters for legible decorating. Never submit copy that requires greater than a 50% reduction.

  3. Avoid the use of designs or logos with fine lines.
  4. s
  5. Keep designs and logos open. Remember that a given design may screen well on an 8 oz. bottle, but may fill in when reduced down to a 4 oz.

  6. On small upper case copy use punctuation that is slightly bolder that the letters.

  7. Avoid small copy that is tightly spaced. 6-point type will not reproduce well.

  8. Avoid the use of (R) and (TM) which are small and thin.

  9. Add extra space to reversed copy or it will run together.

Allow 1/2" from the base and top of the shoulder for the printing process. On a cylinder or oval bottle, allow at least 1/2" for the front and back panel making sure all printing is away from the bottle seams.


Artwork Guidelines

  1. Production-ready positives are preferred; however, our staff artist can produce positives from almost any stage. In this case, each label must be quoted separately.

  2. All positives must be right reading emulsion up.

  3. Art boards must be 600 DPI or greater.

  4. If camera ready art is not available or the artwork is less than 600 DPI, art charges will be quoted after the label is reviewed.
