Duro-Lenz produce digitally printed full colour images or screen printed spot colours matched to exact PMS colour requirements.

You will need to provide all artwork files as vector art in Adobe Illustrator, EPS, PDF or Corel Draw file formats.

If the domed label is for long term, outdoor use (say 5 years plus) we would prefer to screen print the graphics in spot colours only.

Digitally printed full colour graphics, with the Duro-Lenz polyurethane surface coating, will last up to 5 years outdoors. Therefore, the complexity of the artwork is determined by the environment in which the domed label is going.

At the design stage, leave a minimum of 2mm from the edge of the label to the graphic. This avoids distortion of the image at the edges caused by the ā€œ3 ā€“Dā€ lens effect.

Also, when printing red graphics on a white background, be aware that the light refraction caused by the colour within the lens will distort the white background colour to a pink hue.

Other than those considerations, there are no problems printing your requirements.
