Step 1: Define the shape
We require a vector outline of the shape for your order.
Using Pre-Made Shape
If you are using a pre-made shape, this step is already done for you. Simply download the Layout Template for the shape that you are using – this will contain the outline for the shape (as well as guides for bleed area and safety margin).
Using Custom Shape
Using Adobe InDesign or Illustrator (recommended), create a vector outline of the shape. The outline should be one continuous closed path, set the stroke to 1pt line-weight in magenta colour.
Step 2: Set-up your design
Place or layout your design with the shape created in Step 1.
Step 3: Export files
We require two files for a custom shape job. One file will show the shape of the card and the other will not contain the custom shape.
Die-line file (guide)
Including "DIELINE" in the die-line file will help us process your order quicker.
Step 4: Upload
Ensure you upload all the files into your order for printing. See: How do I supply files?.
