Artwork Guidelines and Our Proprietary Inks
Crutch Cards™ are manufactured with our proprietary Water-Based and Soy-Based Inks on State of the Art Printers at the Hemp Press Print Shop in Eugene, Oregon.
Unlike traditional inks which are petroleum based our inks are clean and green! Crutchcard Inks™ are designed specifically for safe use on Rolling Tips.
We offer several forms of printing for customers wanting very small and very large volume printing or requiring special needs. If you prefer a particular printing method please make that indication at checkout or contact our team to discuss your project.
CUSTOMER SUBMITTED ARTWORK OR GRAPHICS
All artwork, designs and images must be provided in minimum of 300 DPI and CMYK color mode. Crutch.Cards is not responsible for images printed as fuzzy, distorted or pixilated due to customer provided artwork. Crutch Cards will convert any spot color or RGB images into CMYK in order to print.
All fonts in vector files that have been created in Illustrator, InDesign, or Freehand have been outlined and embedded when saved and submitted. All layers in Photoshop have been flattened, all text has been rasterized, and all smart objects have been rasterized. Any file submitted other than TIFF or EPS, PDF or JPG may not print correctly and are being used as at the customer’s own risk. (GIF’s, PNG’s, etc…may not print correctly.)
All type is 1/8” from the trim line. All bleeds are 1/8” outside the trim line, any object that does not have sufficient bleed may show a white border when it is cut to size.
Crutch.Cards is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs or graphics (RGB images). Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission.
Our prepress department checks most artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to proofread all files carefully before submitting to Crutch.Cards.
