Artwork Guidelines

Waterless Tattoos/ Temporary Tattoos

  • Allow 0.25” space between multiple images on tattoos and 0.1875” from the edge of the tattoo.

Note: Waterless tattoos are manufactured using only non-toxic, FDA certified inks. Tattoos are not printed with conventional inks, therefore slight color variations may occur.

Sticky Notes/Scratch Pads

  • Allow for a 0.1875" safety margin between art and the edge of the page so that text or images do not get cropped at the trim stage.

Note: Bleeds are not available.

Cling Vinyl

You have the option of using 'Clear' or 'White' material for the background of your Cling Vinyl

  • 'Clear' background material is ideal for view from outside the windows
  • 'White' background material serves good for inside view

Choose the right material that suits your need by clicking the 'Material' button

Bleed Area

All products (excluded scratch pads, sticky notes, tattoos ) can have bleed minimum 0.0625” from final size, safe area 0.0625” inside from final cut/size.
