At MB print we make every effort to provide you with a high quality product. As a company specializing in low-volume printing, a significant part of the work on orders, for technological reasons, is done manually. The way you prepare your files has therefore a significant impact on what the game we make will look like. Below we present a few guidelines on how to professionally prepare a file for printing.
|1. Cardboard boxes|
- Small and standard boxes (up to the dimensions of 30 x 30 x 7 cm) – please prepare the design following the publicly available templates (e.g.: https://pandagm.com/tools/templates).
Please send us three files:
- file grid used to design graphics
- graphic file with a grid of the punching die
- graphic file without a grid.
The entire area inside the blue area (Bleed) should be filled with graphics.
- 2. Large boxes, with dimensions above the standard board game box (30 x 30 x 7 cm) – please send pdf files of each side of the box separately. In the name of the file, please put the markings of which side the file refers to (bottom, top, bottom-right, bottom-left, bottom-up, bottom-down, top-right, top-left, top-up, top-down). All files with graphics on each side should be prepared with a minimum printing bleed of 18 mm on each side of the graphics (More about printing bleed).
|2. Paper box “for cards”|
For small card games, paper boxes (cardboard boxes), such as those on the right, are most often used.
These boxes are made of paperboard additionally covered with glossy or matt foil.
Due to the necessity of making a dedicated die-cut for each box, we produce such boxes from a run of 100 copies.
If you are interested in this type of box, please contact us by e-mail. We will send you a grid of die-cut that matches the dimensions of the card deck. On this grid you can design graphics for the box that we can make.
