Guidelines

Please contact us directly for specific die lines or questions about setting up artwork.

General customer service line: 800-365-4080

Note, we do recommend the use of an Eye Mark for proper tube sealing when crimping your tubes with your centered artwork. Also take into consideration the use of a barcode on your physical tube. If you would like assistance with this do not hesitate to ask your Sales Rep for direction or testing of the barcode you have chosen to make sure it scans properly.

All art files received must be .ai or .eps, Text Outlined, Vector and sized properly for your specific tube dimensions.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Rep!

Printing

We have three different print methods you can choose from depending on the design of your artwork and the way you would like it displayed on your tubes. We are able to print with all three methods on one tube so do not feel like you have choose just one for your design.

  1. Offset Print: Up to 6 colors. Use of CMYK/4-Color Process. Gradient screens are acceptable. Feels like the ink is impregnated on the tubes and takes on the finish you have chosen for your tubes.

  2. Silk Screen: Up to 3 colors. When you run your fingers over the art on the tube it is raised up and will always remain glossy, even on a matte finish tube.

  3. Hot Stamping of Foils: Up to 2 colors.  Slight feel to the touch.  Finish remains glossy with a metallic sheen.
