For contour cut orders, two separate files must be uploaded: one regular artwork file, and one cut mask file. The cut mask file must be an all vector, PDF file uploaded at the same time as the artwork file.
We cannot accept any cut mask files that are made using a raster based program (e.g. Photoshop).
- When being cut, the blade will follow the cut mask line you’ve created. It is recommended that you keep your perimeter cut line slightly inside the border of the image you are trying to cut out. This will avoid any obvious edges showing from your background once it is cut.
- Do not use small/thin cut areas, or have perimeter cut lines that are too close together. At least 0.5" must separate your perimeter cut lines from each other. 4over will not reprint any order with perimeter cut lines that are too close to one another.
- Your contour cut line should be a smooth fully closed path. No disconnected lines or open paths will cut. If your cut line is ragged or has any imperfections, they will show up in the final piece
Only one cut per order will be allowed. Please do not add multiple cuts in a single file.
Print for Change will not reprint any order attributed to improper file setup or layout.
