In a packaging label/ artwork management life cycle, the team requires / creates several documents that support the final artwork. How does the team manage all the documents?
To answer this, ManageArtworks provides a central library that helps the team to store and manage all the required documents.
When a user uploads the file which, say, might be in pdf format, out of several other metadata details, document type is one of them. The different document types which are used to support the final label artwork file can be classified as follows –
The typical document types that are managed are as follows:
|S. No.||Document Type||What do we mean?||File Extensions|
|1||Approved Copy||Some Companies do not have the digital copy of the Label Artwork with them and so they can upload the scanned copy of the file. This can be used as a reference file (in a workflow) for revising the artwork||Pdf, jpeg|
|2||Artwork||The PDF Label Artwork|
|3||Artwork Approval Report||Some Companies take a print of the artwork, then get the signature from all approvers, scan the file and store as Artwork Approval Report||Pdf, , jpeg|
|4||Key Line Drawing||Key Line Diagram / Cutter Guide||Pdf, AI, DWG|
|5||Mock||Pharma & CPG (FMCG) companies use Mock Files in different contexts. Pharma Companies are required to submit the Mock file to the regulator for drug approval. So, they upload the file that they sent to the regulator into ManageArtworks as a Mock File. CPG (FMCG) companies upload the Packaging Design Mock as a Mock File||Pdf, jpeg|
|6||Printer File||This is the same as Vendor Proof·||Pdf, xlsx, jpeg|
|7||Proof Approval Report||Same as Artwork Approval Report but for Proofs||Pdf, jpeg|
|8||Source file||Source (AI / CDR) file||AI, CDR|
