  1. Let a text be a text.

If you want to place a text then let it be a text. It means that your text should not be converted to an image. In such way it will remain sharp and precise on a 3D packaging mock-up as well.

  1. Convert to CMYK colors.

If you color are set in RGB then it might show up on a 3D slightly differently. Therefore, make sure you always convert to CMYK.

  1. Save design as PDF 1.3 for complicated cases.

In case your design colors still look differently and you cannot figure out why then save your design as PDF 1.3. This file format helps to preserve the colors and make them show up the way you have created them on your design. Using this format might also help in case you are using other programs then Adobe illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign.
