ART SUBMISSION GUIDELINE
MSC Gaming strives to fulfill all of your gaming needs with the highest quality products. Proper artwork can be the defining aspect in a product's final outcome and the amount of time required to complete production. Please refer here when preparing and submitting your artwork to ensure accurate production and efficient turn around.
Our production software may not be compatible with all file formats and design software. Within the software listed in this guide are further instructions on the individual file types and how they can be better created for the absolute best outcome.
Playing Card Example
If providing your own card back design, please follow these measurements for proper printing. For full bleed, artwork must have a total size specified by the "Bleed" area shown.
NOTE: All plastic playing cards must be printed within the safe zone.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your artwork or the criteria for submission, please contact your MSC Gaming representative for consultation to best keep your production on schedule and to ensure a quality final result. We can provide high quality image substitution, file reformatting or complete recreation of artwork as necessary (fees apply).
We hope this guide proves useful in your design process and we thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Please supply a composite print/file with submitted art (.JPG or other compressed file type for color representation). Files may be submitted via email, CD or thumb drive.
Printing to the edge of a product requires a "bleed" which is excess printable area that will be trimmed away in the final production steps. This will prevent white unfinished edges.
Not all files are created equal!
Please note that we have listed several file types that are acceptable/unacceptable. However, it IS possible that low quality art may be saved in other formats (e.g. saving a PhotoShop file as a .EPS). Saving a file in a different format will NOT increase the resolution. Additionally, simply changing a 72 DPI file to 300 DPI will NOT make the file high resolution.
