500pts: Label Design: Alighing printable fields on printer?
Posted on 2005-03-14
I am just creating a label, its a simple label that has 3 fields that need to be printed on at a later stage.
I will be passing the label to a professional print house to produce the labels, currently i believe that they will be 3 labels across and 14 down on 1 A4 paper.
My question being is that where should i put the fields on the label, i.e. Do inkjet printers print each 1cm down the page or it doesn't matter? Because when the labels are produced i will be printing on the labels using an inkjet printer and filling in the fields..
Ermm, let me see if i can explain better, in simple terms if the first field starts 1 cm down the first label and then second field is some silly number like 1.33 cm after the first field... will home printers have a problem printing in specific positions remebering that the labels will be on a sheet of A4 so as the printer progresses down the page is it going to slowly go out of line.. i.e. label 2 is ok, label 3 is move .001 cm .. label 3 is moved .003 cm etc.
I am designing the labels in photoshop, but will be only designing 1 .. and the professional print house will be placing them on the a4 before doing a large print run of the labels..
Hope someone can help
