Where do I send my artwork?

While you are placing an order, an option is provided to immediately upload your art files. If you don’t have your art files at that time, your order confirmation email will include instructions on how to send us your artwork when it’s ready.

Our prepress department checks all submitted 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 Sure Lock Packaging is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted artwork. It is solely the customer’s responsibility to obtain the advice of an attorney regarding whether any image, mark, logo name or design is legally available for use and does not infringe on another party’s rights.

Do you keep my artwork on file?

Yes! We keep your artwork on file for easy reordering and using your art on new products!

What kind of artwork can I send? And, what if I don’t have artwork?

Preferred file types include: Ai, PDF, SVG. Please send files with fonts outlined, and/or packaged to include fonts and links. Do not send flattened files.

Don’t have the preferred file types? Don’t worry. Send us what you have. Our graphics department will work with what you have to create exactly what you need. Don’t have art? Just tell our graphics department what you’re thinking of, and we’ll bring your ideas to life.


All printed artwork files need to be uploaded in CMYK. Print files uploaded in RGB are not guaranteed to print as displayed on screen.

Can I specify a PMS color for my print?

For Cartons, Labels and Shrink Sleeves we are able to print PMS colors for an additional fee.  PMS colors are not avaible for direct print, but we can hit some PMS colors with this process. Because of differences in equipment, processing, proofing substrates, paper, inks, pigments, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job will constitute acceptability.

Sure Lock Packaging will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth). Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing an order with Sure Lock Packaging, you agree to this limitation. We will try our best to match the gradient density of each color.

What is the optimal DPI for printing?

300 dpi is optimal for printing. Images with less than 200 dpi resolution are considered low resolution, and will exhibit blurring/pixilation in the final printed product. Web images are often 72 dpi; this low resolution results in poor quality printing.

Vector vs. Raster?

Vector files are preferred for printing because they have unlimited scalability without distortion. Not only will your artwork print crystal clear, your artwork files can be reformatted to fit future needs!

How can I correct my artwork after uploading and placing an order?

If you realized there was an error with your uploaded file(s) shortly after placing your order, please call us at (651) 202-3275 AND email us at to let us know, as timing is critical and your order can go into print before changes are made. Once “printing turnaround time” commences, we may be unable to make any changes to your order.

Artwork can be corrected/revised up until the point of printing. Simply contact (ASAP!) and explain the situation. Include your order #, the new artwork file, and a description of what has changed (or needs changing). Our design team can also help make any changes to art files. Please review our Terms & Conditions for more information on orders and production schedules.
