Added Folder Pocket Artwork Setup Guide

 

File Setup

Follow the below instructions when setting up your artwork in your chosen design program.

Page Count = One for single-sided printing or two for double-side printing.

Document Size = quoted project trim width x 4″ minimum height (or requested custom height)

Bleed = 0.125” on all four sides. Be sure to extend the background artwork to the full bleed.

Margin = 0.125” on all four sides. Keep all crucial text and artwork within this margin to avoid the potential for anything being trimmed off during production.

Be sure to establish two layers in the document:

– Top Layer = Die Cut
– Bottom Layer = Printed Artwork

Please note that folder pockets are always custom shapes and sizes. The desired shape and size should be included in your prepared files.

Submitting Your Artwork

We will need a total of two files submitted for each side of printing, one with and one without the die cut layer visible. That means for each pocket you should submit two total files for single-sided printing and four total files for double-sided printing.
