Art Guidelines

Downloadable Templates

Downloadable .EPS templates. Shape templates work for both Matrix Laminates & Satin Passes.

We want to help you achieve the best results while saving you time and money by providing you with these artwork guidelines.

Art Quality

For the best quality results, save all Photoshop, TIFF, and EPS images at 300 DPI in CMYK format.
Please, keep in mind that low-resolution images such as JPEG and GIF files will not reproduce well.

Artwork will look different from one monitor to the next so color perception will differ considerably. Please, be aware that printed material may not match emailed proofs exactly.
