Durable Product Labels | Core Surf

Core Surf has been a DCS customer for several years and in that time they’ve been able to explore the depth of applications for stickers.

A perfect example: these Digital Die-cut Sticker with Matte Laminate created for the sole purpose of product labels. Heavy-duty, stickable, no glare, and ready to write on with a Sharpie (or similar marker).

How To Outline Your Type

See that message above?

The Font in your design has gone missing. In order to make your stickers, we’re going to need to get it back.

A lengthy hunt of the Font file isn’t completely out of the question, but if you really want tackle the issue at it’s source just convert your Font to outlines.

Here’s how to in Adobe Illustrator:

1. Select all live type.
2. Click Type Menu > Create Outlines
3. Save your file.

This turns the letterforms into shapes, preserving the type on any platfrom and also avoiding a common misstep in the process of ordering your stickers.

Image Resolution | Looking Your Best

Have a seat. Let’s take a minute to talk about Image Resolution.

If you send us an image file, like a .jpg or .psd file, that image was created with a fixed quality resolution that is measured in pixels (or dots) per inch. This determines not only the visual quality on-screen, but also print quality.

Ideally you want your Image Resolution to be 300 dpi or more at actual size for the image to look crisp and clean. Anything below that may appear blurry, blocky, fuzzy, or low-quality when printed as you can see in the example comparison above.

For Best Results: build your original artwork or capture your image at 300 dpi. Or opt for creating your art out of vector graphics in Adobe Illustrator to stay extra crispy at all times.
