FLEXO INK IMPRINT ARTWORK SPECIFICATIONS  Please also visit pages 119-120 for additional information. Available on select PLASTIC and PAPER bags featured on pages 60-70, 72-75, 77, and 86-95. HALFTONES For best results, artwork containing halftones must be pre-approved and is available on select bag styles. Halftones are printed with a 30-line screen. Color percentages for art containing halftones should range from 20% to 60%. Areas less than 20% may not print and areas greater than 60% may fill in and become a solid color. Designs that contain gradients or blends may need alterations for optimum print quality and will require a final, signed proof approval. 5% .95% Halftone bag imprint shown at 100%. PRINTING METHOD Flexographic with ink. Ink color choices shown below. VECTOR ART IS PREFERRED Vector images can be resized without any loss of quality. Please note that placing or importing photographs, bitmap, or raster images into a drawing program does not convert them into vector artwork. If your artwork contains a placed or embedded raster image (PSD, TIFF, JPEG, CPT, EPS), the original raster image file should be included and be pre-approved by BAG MAKERS. PROGRAMS and FORMATS WE ACCEPT Any other file formats are not acceptable and may delay production. ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR — Our Preferred Vector Art Program. Save as native Illustrator .ai file, or Illustrator Default PDF with the Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities box check-marked. MULTICOLOR IMPRINTS Artwork must be pre-approved by BAG MAKERS for printability. Colors must be separated by at least 1/4” of surrounding clear space to allow for color movement. Please note that some color movement will still occur. Two-color imprinting is not available on some bags. FONTS and LINE RULES MINIMUM SIZES:  1-point lines or rules. 10-point fonts. Thin serif font styles are not recommended. FONTS—Please Convert To Outlines (Paths or Curves) If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will "default" to a less attractive font, changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines, paths, or curves eliminates this hazard by changing your fonts into vector shapes. This ensures that your artwork will print exactly how you expect it to look. Line Screen = 30 LPI Dot pattern FLEXO INK Color Selection—For imprinting on PLASTIC or PAPER bags featured on pages 60-70, 72-75, 77, and 86-95.
