Ahhh yes. My covers had been rejected due to having center 'holes'. I thought this was a little harsh, as the full picture is there - I simply applied a transparent mask, giving a faint outline of the non printable parts of the disc, including a transparent center hole,
As I mentioned in the "upload rejected" thread - Nice labels, unfortunately with holes".
As the rules state - we do not accept labels with holes. This is simply due to the fact that, when printing "full face", printer registration errors can cause part of the "hole" to be printed. This turns an excellent label into a very amateurish one. Personally, I dislike radial writing on labels for the same reason - but that is a separate argument.
By all means, when you are producing labels, use a mask to guide you as to where the centre hole will lie - but please - simply remove it before uploading. The label paper will remove the bits it doesn't need!
I have been away over the weekend, so perhaps my colleagues were less ardent than me in their approvals. But I, I have to tell you, will ALWAYS disallow labels with holes. And I will remove labels that have slipped through. (There are some older labels that were upped before the rule was implemented - it would, I feel, be unfair to remove those).
The reason I put the note in the "reject" thread, is because they ARE excellent labels, and I do hope I will see them again without the "hole" (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif
