Label Design

We need to print your design and then trim the outer edge and the center hole to the right size. That means the designs need to go a little bit over the inside and outside edges so we can make the cuts without leaving any blank paper. However, we also need to mount the images on a template, so please send just the circular and rectangular image(s) with no background, so we can paste them straight in.

If in doubt, just provide the images you want printed, plus a "bleed" (a continuation of your design that we can trim off) but please don't include any bleed markers, because they will get in the way, and might end up being left on the label (see details below). Do not include any extra background apart from the bleed area.

For best results, its a good idea to keep all important details (that you definitely don't want to lose) a little way in from the edge so they don't get trimmed.


Record Label design: 102mm in diameter (trimmed to 100mm)

Sleeve Sticker design: 77mm wide x 52mm high (trimmed to 75mm x 50mm)

Each trimmed record label is 100mm in diameter and each trimmed sleeve sticker is 75mm x 50mm (see grey areas below).

Your designs must be larger to allow them to be trimmed (see green guidelines below).

Because the labels are trimmed, any text or important details must be kept a little in from the edge to ensure nothing is lost.

The center hole will also be trimmed, so the design must have a bleed into the center hole.
