USB Flash Drive Image Artwork Examples:

GOOD:



In these examples of good USB Flash drive logo images:

  1. The images are rectangular and basic, which is appropriate for a logo sized image.
  2. There is not a lot of text or complicated artwork since the final print size is 1" wide by 1/2" in height.
  3. Anything white is treated as clear/transparent (not printed) so the background color of the USB flash drive will be shown.
  4. The same image will be printed on BOTH sides of the USB Drive.
  5. Your artwork may look brighter on your computer monitor than what actually gets printed. This is mainly because your screen is much brighter, and there are some limitations in the logo printing process and the surface and color of the USB drive itself.
  6. Try to use solid colors and large block text where possible.

USB Jewel Case 2 Panel Folded Artwork Examples:

In this example of a good USB Jewel case 2 Panel folded artwork image, the background goes smoothly to all edges including the center. There is nothing important near the edges (at least 1/4 inch). There are no bleed or crop marks.
good
The image contains a border. Do NOT use borders, crop, or bleed marks. It's a bad idea since we trim the packaging after we print. Trimming is never perfectly centered, so a border near the edge makes it easy to see when trimming is off center.

It's best if your artwork:

  1. Is continuous from edge to edge.
  2. The image placed on the USB Flash drive is only 1 inch wide so use a small logo type image. Only a small amount of text will be readable so focus on a logo rather than a complex artwork.
  3. Nothing is too close to an edge or it may get cut off or not printed. We recommend you do not place text or anything important within 1/4 inch of any printed 2 panel artwork edge. This will ensure it will still look good after trimming.
  4. Do NOT put borders near the edges of the artwork in case printing or trimming is slightly off center.

These same "best practices" still apply for all types of artwork printing including CD/Jewel cases.
