  • See Art Guidelines at this site before starting new shopping bag or flat handle sack designs.
  • Find the bag size being designed for, in the appropriate process.
  • It is not an error that height of the bag is shorter than the bag's height dimension on In-line templates. The height must be designed shorter for flexographic plate making and printing. It will print the full height.
  • The top and bottom bleed areas are always .25".
  • The left bleed area is always .375".
  • The right bleed area is always .125".
  • Design elements in a panel that should not be cut off at the top, or folded into the bottom, should be cut back at least .25" from the cut off and/or fold line.
  • Design elements that print to a side-to-side fold line must be extended at least .0625" beyond fold line, except at left gusset fold, .375", which folds under the seam on back side of bag.
  • Design elements that should not appear in an adjacent panel must be cut back from the fold line at least .0625".
  • Design elements should not end exactly on fold lines or top cutoff - they should bleed or be cut back as indicated above.
  • These notes, the templates and the Art Guidelines at this site should allow any artist to start a new shopping bag right away.
