TreeFreeHemp Design Guidelines

Print Design Guidelines (PDF)

Please use this checklist before you submit your artwork:

  • Artwork must be 300dpi CMYK
  • Embed All Fonts (outline is the best)
  • Embed All Images
  • Flatten Transparencies
  • Flatten Photoshop Layers
  • Correct Dimension
  • Correct Orientation
  • Convert SPOT or PMS Colors to CMYK
  • Turn Off Overprint
  • Remove ICC profiles
  • Make sure files have Bleeds
  • Remove Template Guidelines from artwork
  • Ink Coverage no more than 280% on solid area

Artwork with large solid color floods may have a modeling effect (inconsistent print coverage) when reproduced due to the nature of the un-coated, textured hemp paper and how it responds to ink and toner coverage.

Certain gradients and fades can also have a modeling effect. Artwork created with a variety of contrast and textures reproduces exceptionally well on hemp paper.

Please note, TreeFreeHemp does not proof artwork for typos. Be sure to check your spelling before sending.
