Shipping Label Art – Faded borders

When designing artwork for shipping labels, you might want to consider faded borders. Sharp borders on artwork can cause problems. If the labels are not lined up exactly on the label layout the uneven spacing can be unsightly. The closer the artwork to the edge of the label, the worse the problem can become. One solution to this problem would be to make the artwork near the edges of the label to be faded. Below is an example of faded edge artwork created in the Gimp. It’s in Gimp format, so you’ll need Gimp to view it.

And you can stick that directly into Microsoft Word. The faded borders make it a little easier to line up on the label. The mistakes are harder to see than if you had hard edges.
