File Preparation and Troubleshooting

A bleed is when an image extends beyond the trim edge of the product. If your image is not white on all four sides, you will want to include bleeds in your files. Add 1/8” (.125”) to each side of the file. For example, for a 2” x 3.5” business card with full bleed, the image size should be submitted at 2.25” x 3.75”

We cannot print from these files as they do not provide a file that is print-ready, which will cause a low-quality printed piece. You may try using FREE utilities such as PrimoPDF, which allow you to create a PDF document from these applications (or ANY other application). When creating the PDF, please adhere to Print Runners PDF guidelines. You may then upload this PDF to us for printing.

Safe area is the 1/8” margin that we require between the trim line and the text closest to the trim line.

UV coating cannot be written on. However, we do offer a matte or aqueous coating on several products which is writeable with most pens.

The only way to be certain you’ve uploaded the correct file is by double checking the file name prior to uploading the artwork. If you upload a PDF you will be able to see a preview of your file before placing your order.

Although it is not required, we encourage you to use our templates as this may prevent delays in processing your files. These templates include guidelines for bleed and safe area.

We do not. However, uploading files can be accomplished through our website before placing your order.

You must upload artwork so that the finished piece backs up correctly. On two sided work, the head of one side backs up to the head of the other side. The head of a page is defined by the top of the rendered proof and the bottom is called the foot.

For folded products, we create a mock-up prior to approving the job to ensure the artwork is set up correctly. On jobs where the orientation is not so obvious, please describe how it should back up in the order notes.

For animated examples of how to rotate and orient your artwork, please refer to our:
Artwork Orientation Instructions

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (Black). This is the industry standard process colors used in full-color offset printing. The combination of these four colors can produce a wide spectrum of colors. Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow combine to create the color, while Black is used to change the shade of the color.

Additional information about color can be found on the following page: Template Guidelines Explained    Converting your Colors for Print

RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue. These are most commonly used with web design, television screens and computer monitors but are not used in offset printing. RGB files should be converted to CMYK prior to uploading. Colors may need to be adjusted after the conversion and may not appear correct on your monitor.

Additional information about color can be found on the following page: Template Guidelines Explained    Converting your Colors for Print

Although Print Runner does not enforce a specific file size limit, we recommend uploading files no larger than 50MB. To reduce your file size, you can “zip” or “stuff” them.

Although we cannot guarantee your files will be archived for more than 90 days, we do make an attempt to store all client files on our servers. Print Runner may, at its discretion remove any files from our servers at any time. It is recommended that you maintain a copy of all our files. If you wish to re-order a specific project, please use our “re-order” tool available through Print Runner’s “My Account” section. A preview of your previous files may be available through this tool.

If your job has been placed on “Hold”, and a message states that your file is missing fonts, it may be possible to provide us the font file you used in your design. However, in most cases we require that you convert your text to outlines before uploading your files.

For more information about submitting your files, please visit our File Preperation Help Center.

Converting your text to outlines is the most effective way to ensure your typefaces look exactly as you designed them. Once text has been converted to outlines, it can no longer be typeset like standard text layers, so be sure to save your source files accordingly.

For detailed instructions on converting your text to outlines, or to find out if it is necessary for your file type please visit our File Preperation Help Center.

Print-ready files are files that contain adhere to Print Runner’s file submission requirements.

The difference between the 2 is that the cover stock is twice as thick as the book stock. 100# gloss book measures at .005 inches thick whereas 100# gloss cover measures .010 inches thick.

With Matte coating you will get a dull finish without gloss or luster. With UV Gloss coating you will get a high gloss finish that will have a nice shine and protection for your paper. Please note that you can write on the surface of a matte finished product with a ball point pen, but not on a surface coated with UV.

Glossy cards are not lower quality. The reason for this is that the manufacturing process to produce a matte finish costs a little more to produce. Also we run more UV gangs which help keep the UV costs low.

14pt C2S is a type of board stock that is coated on both sides and has a thickness of .014 inches. This stock is highly durable and is well suited for a variety of print products.

Yes we do. Most of our products have downloadable template for you to use free of charge. Please visit the product templates section of our website.

Shipping and Turnaround Time

Turnaround time for a print job where a PDF or Hard Copy proof is selected begins once the proof has been approved by you. If you did not select a PDF or a Hard Copy proof, turnaround time begins once your file is uploaded. If you approve your job by 4 P.M. Pacific Standard Time, turnaround time begins that business day. Also note that if we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to Print Runner’s file requirements, your job status will be put “On Hold” and your turnaround time will be reset.

Please visit our Turnaround page for more information.

Turnaround time varies with each product and begins once the submitted artwork has been approved. If no proof was requested, turnaround time begins the next business day if ordered before 2 PM Pacific Standard Time. For additional information visit the turnaround section on our website.

Turnaround time represents the business days required to produce the approved artwork. Shipping is based off the method selected at the time the order was placed, and is not included in the turnaround estimate.

Our primary method of shipping is via UPS. If you have an account with UPS or with a different shipper, you may provide Print Runner with your account number and we will arrange a pick up to fulfill your order.

Please note that business card orders under one pound are shipped using UPS Mail Innovations which takes 4-7 days to delivery and will be dropped off by the USPS.

Print Runner, Inc. is a commercial printer located in the city of Chatsworth in Southern California. We specialize in affordable high quality printing all of which is done in-house.

Our address is:
8000 Haskell ave.
Van Nuys, CA 91406.

Get Directions

We do ship to Canada using UPS. Along with the shipping costs there will be an additional expense paid to the brokering company to cover taxes and duties applied to goods shipped from US to Canada.

We will email your tracking number to you once your job is ready for shipping. If you selected customer pick-up you will receive an email stating your job is ready.

I am sorry but no. We do not ship our products using USPS at this time.

UPS will not require a signature but the decision to leave a package without one is made by the UPS driver. The only way to make sure UPS does not leave the package at the door step will be to put a note on the door explaining that you do not want the package left outside.

Payment Options

Yes, we can accept payment by check. However, this process takes much longer than a credit card transaction. If you prefer to pay by check, you must mail in a completed order form including payment and print ready artwork. Once we receive the order it will be submitted but remain “On Hold” until the check clears with the bank. After the check has cleared, the standard turnaround time will apply.

If you are producing a product for resale and would like to provide us with your resale number, you will need to fax us a copy of your California Resale Certificate.

I am sorry but we are currently not offering terms to our customers at this time.

Your Order

You can check your order status by going to our website and clicking on the order status link on the home page of our website. You will be asked to enter your order/job number and order billing zip code or the email address and password that is listed on the account.

As a customer, you are responsible for the accuracy of your artwork. You are encouraged to carefully inspect the positioning, copy, and design elements in your art files before submitting them to us. Ordering a PDF or Hard Copy Proof affords you the opportunity to check for errors you wish to correct in your files prior to production.

Yes, you can upload files before placing your order.

Yes. We’ve provided a tool that allows your designer to upload files to your order/job using only the order/job number and billing zip code. Simply have your designer visit our website and click the green “Order Status” button.

If you use an address with an email filter that requires each sender to fill out a form, you may not receive our automatic email notifications regarding the status of your order. Print Runner is not responsible for automated email notifications that are redirected due to a customer’s email filter settings. It is the customer’s responsibility to check their “My Account” page or contact their sales person for the status of their order.

A request to cancel should be done by phone to prevent the job from moving forward in the production process. Cancelled orders require compensation for incurred costs and related obligations at the time of cancellation. Due to our company procedures, you may only cancel an order without incurring additional fees prior to preflighting of the artwork. All requests for cancellations after preflighting, or the approval of the artwork are subject to a minimum cancellation fee of 15%. No refunds will be given for orders cancelled after your job has been added to a Press Sheet.

If you have uploaded a PDF to the job an instant preview will be available. With the other file formats we apologize but the software we currently use does not support instant preview. For all copy critical jobs we suggest an electronic PDF proof be purchased. PDF proofs are sent out within 24 hours of the file being uploaded and is sent to the email address provided with the order.

Color copies do not print to the edge. There will be about a ¼" around the edge of the paper that will not include printing. If printing letter-sized copies you can print on a larger sheet of paper with bleeds and then trim off the edges.

You may go online and find the job you would like to re-order. Once you have found it you can click on the re-order button which will add that project into your shopping cart. From there you can follow your normal check out process.

PDF proofs are usually sent out within several hours but during certain circumstances it may take up to 24 hours.

The production process to produce round stickers is a lot more labor intensive and takes longer to produce. Rectangle stickers are gang-able items that can be printed and cut out quickly.

Yes, we do require payment prior to processing your order.

The lines on the corner of your PDF proof are crop marks. These show where the cutting will take place. These will not be on the finished material.

Once your files have passed our preflight file check you will receive an automated email letting you know your files are ok and ready for print. If the files are not print ready you will receive an email explaining what needs to be done to correct them.

This is due to the mail server that you currently use. From time to time a provider may mark something as junk even though our emails are not. You will want to contact your Internet Service Provider and explain to them that you do want to receive our emails. If you use a web based email service like Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail you will need to contact them and explain the situation. Please note that you will also want to verify that we have the correct email address on file.

Restaurant Signs FAQs

You can use our website’s online design tool to create a design for your custom restaurant signs. The tool offers the same basic editing features available in professional design software: you can add images, text, shapes, lines, and colors to your custom signs.

The most popular restaurant signs that you often see in a restaurant include door signs, wall menus, promotional posters, sidewalk signs, among others

It depends on your needs and preferences. If you want to ramp up your promotions to your existing customers, displaying posters inside your restaurant could be an effective solution. If you want to drive more foot traffic, you can create custom sidewalk signs that call the attention of passersby and nearby pedestrians.

No, we don’t. Most of our custom restaurant signs, however, let you order as few as one (1) sign.

Packaging Stickers

Yes, we offer downloadable templates you can use for your label designs. These files can be found on the product page Templates tab. These are blank templates, but they come with the correct trim and folding lines to help you design according to print guidelines.

Yes. We offer free file reviews and can send a PDF proof file for approval. This helps you see if there are any errors or revisions to make before your order prints.

This depends on your selected product specs. You can use our order calculator to get an instant quote. Choose your preferred sticker size, shape, quantity, and material from the dropdown options and our website automatically generates the estimated cost.

Bulk Labels

You can order as few as 25 pieces on our custom bulk labels. If you require a specific amount that is not in the options that we’ve provided in our product calculator, don’t hesitate to reach out to us via email ( or phone (1-888-296-5760).

Yes, they do. You can get these custom labels printed in white vinyl sticker, which is water-resistant and ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Our standard turnaround time is three (3) business days. However, if you are in a rush, our printing services can expedite the production to two (2) business days or next business day for an additional charge. Remember that business days do not include weekends or holidays.

Reviewing every submitted artwork is standard operating procedure for us. This is to make sure that we can spot any technical errors and correct them before printing.

Free ground shipping at PrintRunner is limited to qualified orders and only within mainland U.S. For shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada, additional charges may apply. Keep in mind that we only offer ground shipping and not freight shipping.

Business Labels

Yes, you can. The production time of our cut-to-size business labels can be expedited to 1 to 2 business days. For our roll business labels, rush orders are typically ready for shipping around 2 to 4 business days.

You can either upload your print-ready artwork on our website or use our intuitive online 3D design tool to create the design of your label. These options can be found just below the product calculator.

Yes, we do. Our prepress team reviews every uploaded artwork to ensure that any technical errors can be fixed before printing.

When uploading your artwork, you can request for a free PDF proof by clicking the I need a PDF proof option. You need to approve your PDF proof in your PrintRunner account if you find everything in order and there are no changes that need to be made. We cannot proceed with production without your approval.

It depends on the label format. Cut-to-size business labels have a minimum order quantity of 25 pieces while it’s at least 250 pieces for our roll business labels.

Custom Shape Stickers and Labels

Stickers and labels printed on cut-to-size format are individually cut and shipped in stacks. They are suitable for giveaways and for labelling a small number of items. Roll stickers and labels are made for fast and easy application since they fit most standard label dispensers. Sheet format lets you print multiple stickers in one sheet. The main advantage of this format is that the stickers can come in different shapes and designs.

Yes, we do. Depending on your chosen sticker and label format, you may opt for the following water-resistant materials: white vinyl sticker and BOPP. BOPP comes in white, clear, and silver metallic variants and can also withstand oil, moisture, and refrigeration.

You can use our website’s online design tool to create your own sticker and label design. Just click Design Your File Online once you are done selecting the specifications of your stickers or labels. We also offer blank templates that you can download for free. These templates are available in various sizes and have the correct bleed and trim lines. They are also compatible with most professional design software.

Yes. Just upload your artwork on our website and you can get a free file proof upon checkout.

It depends on which type of sticker or label that you are going to purchase. But most of our stickers and labels have a standard turnaround time of three (3) or six (6) business days. Some of them can also be expedited to next-day printing for an additional fee.

Medical Labels

White paper is not water-resistant so it’s more suitable for indoor application. If you want to label items that are kept in a dry place and won’t be exposed to moisture and refrigeration, then medical labels made from white paper will suit your needs. White vinyl, on the other hand, is durable and can withstand exposure to the sun’s UV light and water. Use them for items that need to be refrigerated or for equipment that is kept outdoors.

The standard printing time for both our cut-to-size and roll medical labels is five (5) business days. If you want to expedite the production, cut-to-size medical labels can be printed in 1-3 business days while it’s 2-3 business days for roll medical labels.

Yes, you can. Just select I need a PDF proof when uploading your artwork on our website. Take note that your file won’t be queued for printing until you have approved the proof in your PrintRunner account.

Check out this page for our complete contact details.

Color Coded Labels FAQs

These are the available label printing formats. They both vary in application and materials. Cut-to-size labels, also known as singles, means that each piece is already individually trimmed according to their size and shape. They are shipped in stacks and highly suitable for smaller quantity orders. Roll labels come wrapped around a spool so you can stick them using dispensers. They are much faster to apply with a machine or by hand, so they are recommended for bigger orders.

Yes, aside from standard shapes like circles and squares, we also offer heart, starburst, and hexagon shapes. If you have a unique design and you’d like us to trim it according to its exact size and shape, try Custom Shape when you make your order.

PDF proofs are ready within 6 hours to 24 hours after you place your order. You will receive an email notification once your proof is ready.

Yes, you can. There are no rules restricting the size of your food labels as long as they have all the necessary information.

Label Maker

If you want your labels to last even when exposed to outdoor elements like water and the sun’s UV rays, select the white vinyl material. It is our thickest and most durable material, making it suitable for outdoor exposure.

Yes. As long as the surface is smooth, clean, and dry, you can apply your custom label on it and expect it to stick firmly.

Yes, we offer free file proof for all our products. The PDF proof should be ready 6 hours after you place your order. You will receive an email notification once it’s ready. You can review the PDF proof by going to Your Account.

Shop Labels by Type

Both cut-to-size and kiss-cut labels can come in any shape and design you want. The difference is the way they are printed and trimmed. Cut-to-size labels are trimmed through the sticker and paper backing. For kiss-cut labels, we only cut through the sticker adhesive, leaving the paper backing intact. Kiss-cut stickers have a border around your design which makes them easier to peel off and apply.

This depends on the size and quantity of your sticker order. We use a 3” diameter core and for most roll sticker orders the total diameter ranges from 4” to 8” per roll. The quantity of stickers per roll decreases as the dimensions get bigger.

This depends on your chosen sheet size and label size. The smaller the label size, the more pieces you can print on a single sheet. As a reference, you can print 30 pieces of 2.685” x 1” labels on an 8.5” x 11” sheet. If you choose 5” x 4” sized labels, you can print a maximum of 4 labels per sheet.

Yes. Be sure to select Multiple Designs on the Sheet in the order calculator as you make your order.

If you’re not sure what type of label to order, you can request a free sample kit and we’ll deliver it to your address. This kit includes our popular print products, a swatch kit for materials, and information about sizing and folding.

Spice Labels

Yes, our prepress team will e-mail you a PDF document for your review. You can check for any design errors and make necessary changes before it goes to print. This process is free of charge and will be ready within 6 hours after you place your order.

This depends on your selected label format. You can check the minimum order quantity for each type using the order calculator. Select your preferred label format using the dropdown options, and the calculator automatically shows the amounts you can choose from.

If you have a unique design and want us to trim it according to its exact size and shape, try Custom Shape when making your order.

Yes, we offer free blank guideline templates that you can edit using your preferred design software like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, and Microsoft Publisher. You can find them below the order calculator in the Templates tab.

Yes. In printing, the more quantities you print, the lower the cost per piece. Bulk printing is cheaper because it saves on ink, material, and shipping costs. If you order enough labels, you may also qualify for our free shipping discount.

School Labels

The quantity of labels per sheet depends on the size of your labels. Our smallest size (2.685" x 1") fits thirty (30) labels per 8.5" x 11" sheet. If you choose the largest size, 5" x 4", you can fit four (4) labels per sheet.

If you need something suitable for indoor use, we recommend white sticker paper. These are not waterproof, but you can add protective gloss or matte laminate for extra protection.  

For outdoor use, white vinyl is the best option. It comes with a high-gloss, UV-resistant coating that protects your stickers and labels from external elements.  

If you need something oil- and water-resistant, BOPP is similar to plastic film and safe to use for products that need to be stored in refrigeration. 

Yes, we offer free blank guideline templates you can download and edit using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator or Microsoft Publisher. You can find them below the order calculator in the Templates tab.

Bulk printing saves more money on shipping costs and material waste, which allows us to offer cheaper rates for larger orders. The more labels you order, the lower the price per unit.

Yes, our prepress team can check your design for any technical errors before it goes to print, free of charge. We will e-mail you a PDF document for your approval.

Bulk Labels

It depends on the number of labels you order, plus the size, material, and format. For example, 1,000 pieces of cut-to-size 3” x 3” circle labels printed on matte white paper sticker cost 14¢ each or $137.07 in total. If you order 5,000 pieces, each piece drops to 6¢. You can use the order calculator to check your labels total cost and price per unit.

Cut-to-size labels are individually cut according to your shape and size and delivered in stacks. This option is recommended for small quantity orders and when giving away stickers as freebies.

Roll labels are applied using a label dispenser. If you need many labels or if you will use them on bottled products, this is the best option.

Sheet labels are printed on an 8.5” x 11” sheet with permanent adhesive backing. Depending on the size of your labels, a single sheet can fit at least 4 and up to 30 labels.

Kiss-cut labels are like cut-to-size labels in the sense that they are both individually cut; however, the former is surrounded by a border that prevents intricate shapes from tearing.

Our most durable material for labels is white vinyl. This is the best option for outdoor use because it is UV-resistant and weather-proof.
