Newspaper ADvantage Labels Art Requirements

We can accept artwork in the form of an .ai (illustrator) file, EPS, PDF or PSD. If you are submitting a photoshop PSD file, leave the layers unflattened. If you build the job Indesign, export the art to a PDF and send both files. Include all support graphics and photos. Since the resolution of an embedded pr linked image is critical to a high quality final product, it needs to be at least 300dpi, in CMYK, saved as a TIFF or EPS and included in the same folder with your artwork. If you are unsure whether sending a file is necessary or not, go ahead and send it.

Dieline Templates

Please create your artwork using our dieline templates. If you do not want the artwork to bleed, keep it within 1/8" from the edge of the label. If you want the label to bleed, it should extend 1/8" past the edges of the label. 

Colors & Fonts

We ask that you specify all PMS colors used in the design. We can print any color from the PMS Solid Coated book except metallic colors and colors in the 800's. Outline all fonts prior to saving and sending files. Minimum font size is 4 points for positive and 6 points for reverse copy. All black elements should be 100% black rather than a combination of CMYK (Rich Black). There is a maximum of 6 colors, including the 4-color process, except in Coin Reactive Reveal.

If your design requires a graduated screen (gradient), 2% is the minimum dot percentage rather than graduating from 0%. Please be aware that this affects drop shadows as well.

Craft beer labeling technology demo

As this video shows, we design labels that adhere to anything: even a cold, wet can. If you have a product that needs a label, we'll find a solution that sticks.

Century Printing helped us bring our bottle labeling up to current industry standards. We wouldn't work with any other label printer!

All of my customers are using labels from Century Printing and Packaging. They look amazing, are made with high quality materials, and stick on great even when the bottles are wet.

We were having huge issues labeling our bottles given the extreme humidity in Hong Kong. Century solved our problem after months of trying other company labels. Not only that, the labels look great, stay on despite the Hong Kong heat and humidity and customer service at Century is excellent.


Simon PeschBrewmaster, Hong Kong Beer Co.

We were very pleased with the labels you provided for our  Toad the Wet Hop Ale  project. The color, size and feel were right on our specs. Additionally, they performed flawlessly in regards to adhesion and durability. Thanks for help in making the project work!
