COLORVISTA ARTWORK SPECIFICATIONS Please also visit pages 119-120 for additional information. Available on COTTON/JUTE, PET NON-WOVEN, NON-WOVEN, POLYESTER, and UNCOATED PAPER bags featured on pages 4-53, 75-76, and 84-95 BAG MAKERS offers customers the ability to embed imperceptible, scannable digital IDs in artwork using our COLORVISTA or SUBLIMATION imprint process. Our partner, DIGIMARC® Corporation, provides the digital technology and service activation. ART GUIDELINES • CMYK artwork is required and must meet COLORVISTA or SUBLIMATION art requirements. • Minimum art size of 2 in. x 2 in. is required to embed a digital ID. • Bright, colorful photography and multicolored art is best suited for digital ID technology. Digital IDs cannot be added to pure white areas. Large areas of black or extremely dark colors are not recommended. • BAG MAKERS will embed the digital ID into your artwork using your client's DIGIMARC account. Please do not apply the digital ID to your art yourself, as we must make technical adjustments to the art before the digital ID is embedded. • Multiple unique digital IDs can be used in one design if the imprint area is large enough to support multiple hot spots. Each digital ID requires a separate DIGIMARC service charge. Additional art set-up charges may also apply. See page 120 for art fees. 124 2018 | As prices may fluctuate, please verify current pricing. Adhesive outline. Imprint shown at 100%. ORDER PROCESS 1.

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP — Our Preferred Raster Art Program. • Save files as native Photoshop .psd or layered TIFF with transparent backgrounds. • Please properly isolate your art from the background by using exact, sharp-edged clipping masks or clipping paths. ADOBE INDESIGN—Macintosh Version only. • Please PACKAGE the file and include all fonts and links. • Please don't use any third-party plug-ins—if they are used, we will be unable to process your art. FONTS and LINE RULES MINIMUM SIZES (if free floating on the bag) 3-point lines or rules. 18-point fonts. Thin serif font styles are not recommended. 4-point lines or rules, 24-point fonts for printing on our Mesh panels. Bold fonts provide the best results. Thin serif font styles are not recommended. Please Convert Fonts 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 eliminates this hazard. IMPRINT COLORS Color tints/shades/tones may fluctuate up to 5% within a print run or reorder. PMS color matching is not available. PMS solid spot colors are converted to corresponding CMYK formulas to achieve close equivalents. Please consult a PANTONE-Plus Color Bridge–Coated guidebook to view how your PMS Solid Color will look once converted to CMYK. A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUR PRINTING PROCESS The COLORVISTA process requires an adhesive layer on the backside of the artwork. This results in a narrow outline of color similar to the bag color around the artwork to ensure proper adhesion. VISTASCAN — Digital ID Technology Use mobile technology to turn your COLORVISTA or SUBLIMATION printed bag into an interactive marketing experience.
