Supplement Bag Print Requirements

  • Supply camera-ready artwork separated with registration marks when more than one color imprint is required.
  • Maximum 60 line screen on all spot colored bags.
  • Original vector art created in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
  • All fonts converted to paths, curves or outlines.

We do not recommend overprinting spot colors due to contamination of ink colors. If your design requires you to overprint, we recommend you use a dark color on overprint and light on the under print text. This will help minimize a change in color where the images overprint.

Internet/Email Delivery of all Supplement Bag Materials
Furnish an EPS file with a PDF for visual. Files should be emailed to Candy Fuentes at
[email protected]. Please send an email confirmation to your sales representative once materials are sent.

Trade Show Supplement Bellybands are printed on 70# gloss paper, trimmed to 10.75” x 6”, jogged to the foot, and saddle stitched to the outside of the supplement. Includes back cover ad.
