How to create the right print file

Here you'll find an overview of the key points to consider when creating your print file. Under ‘Find out more’, you’ll find an explanation and video tutorial for each point. We've also provided answers to the most frequently asked questions about creating print files.

Our Artwork Kit contains a specific template for each packaging material and size. It also includes our comprehensive guidelines and a checklist. This makes creating your artwork super easy.
