  • Hi UmutAta! I would like to pick you as the winner ..just a few things... to make sure all the shadows go in the same direction. When do you think you can deliver the file - and please make sure the people are in EPS format :) #36
  • Are you still after die cut or brief change again?
  • No marijuana imagery, as per brief, background cover area is a simply sunburst, foreground(die-cut) is all connected and well supported. I left the top open so the logo shows through. #107
  • Canabis Design. #106
  • @aderasmo Hello contest holder please see entry #105 thanks
  • A few questions. Will the die-cut cover be printed, and if so do you want your header logo on that on the lower cover? On the die-cut, what are the minimum interior angles/how tight of a curve(radius)? Also you've got a raster template in a Photoshop format, but I assume the die cut path will need to be a vector?
