Images have a resolution of 300 dpi. You can upload the jpg or jpeg images form your camera for this.
This is the text you want on your beermats.
In this field you can indicate your wishes regarding the layout. Consider, for example: use of color, font, frames, layout, etc.
The more information we have, the better the design will meet your needs.

Further design guidelines
- Bleed: With a bleed design, the printing must continue up to this line.
- Cut-off line: This is the final format on which the beermat will be die-cut.
- Safety margin: Make sure that important elements (such as texts) that must not be omitted fall within the safety margin.
- Always convert texts to outlines.
- We recommend 100% black for black texts and thin lines.
- We advise to submit black and white images as 100% black (not full colour black).
This prevents a color cast (due to a register difference at the press).
- For deep black we advise to build up the black from: 100% black and 40% cyan.
- Texts may not be less than 7 points.
We recommend a minimum of 8 points for ornamental and light fonts.
- Positive lines must not be thinner than 0.5 points.
Negative lines must not be less than 1 point.
- Format the file in CMYK.
- White may not be on overprint (this disappears when printing).
- We recommend when using a frame or white border, to stay 4mm within the cut-off line.
- Material deformation can occur during the printing process.
This means that there is a chance that the print will no longer be perfectly centered after die-cutting.
This is most noticable in designs with an edge that is parallel to the cut line.
- For images, use CMYK with a resolution of 300 dpi.
- Maximum file size is 10Mb.
- Save the file as a PDF. Save as PDF with profile PDF / X-1a: 2001.
- Submit the files as seperate pages (1 PDF per beermat).
