Sizing: The recommended minimum font size is 6pt. Positive ; 7pt. reversed.

Optional Extras

White/Silver Disc: By default, a white-base is applied to disc before printing. For a silver base instead, submit a 2nd file indicating where you DON’T want silver base.

100% Recycled: is more absorbent which can make colours duller. So if using 100% recycled, make colours brighter. Also don’t use too much fine detail (e.g. tiny fonts).

Stickers, Spot UV etc:  If you require Spot UV or stickers, please include a 2nd file indicating in black the exact size/shape where the effect is to be applied.
