Document Types in ManageArtworks

August 20, 2016


During the lifecycle of a packaging artwork, 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.

The typical document types that are managed are as follows:


S. No. Document Type What does that mean? Typical File Formats
1. Artwork Brief Details of the text that should go into the Artwork Word, Excel, XML
2. Approved Copy Some Companies do not have the digital copy of the 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
3. Artwork The PDF Artwork. Pdf
4. 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
5. Key Line Drawing Key Line Diagram / Cutter Guide Pdf, AI, DWG
6. 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
