Image formats - your artwork should be a high quality image file, eg. tif, cpt, psd, high quality jpg (uncompressed jpg and .psd files recommended) at least 300dpi (600dpi recommended). If in doubt, download the business card template from our templates page. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any problems.

We do not print from Microsoft Word documents but we may be able to redraw your design from this at no additional charge, however we need to see your file before we can give you a decision on whether we can print your design. We cannot print from Microsoft Publisher documents. We can only accept pdf files if they fit the exact dimensions specified below. NB - if you are sending a layered image format (e.g. a Photoshop .psd) with embedded fonts, please also supply a jpg version so that we can check that there are no problems with font subsitution.

If you have a simple design (eg. text on plain background, text with image alongside) you can send us the text/images along with information on the layout, font, colour etc. and we will set up the design for you. This will normally be included in the card price.
If you are sending a ready-to-print design please ensure that it matches our design specifications below.
If you need us to set up a more complicated layout or design then there may be an additional charge.

Design Specifications - if you want to send a full design ready for printing the specifications are as follows:

Standard Silk and Silk laminated Business Cards - trimmed size 85mm x 55mm (1004 x 650 pixels at 300dpi)

Silk Finish Multi-Option Business Cards - trimmed size 89mm x 51mm (2150 x 1254 pixels at 600dpi)

All Cards - Bleed and trim area - there should be a 3mm bleed area on your cards, ie. your design should extend 3mm outside the card edge. Please ensure that you leave a safe trim area for your images and text these should be at least 3mm inside the cut dimensions of your design.

Resolution - 300-600dpi (600dpi recommended)

Optimum file size - not more than 6MB

Colour - CMYK four colour printing (please note that if your card is designed in RGB rather than CMYK colour there may be some difference in the print colours, especially bright blues).

Downloadable templates - we have templates in different formats that you can download and use to set up your cards or to check that your images are the correct size. You can find these on our templates page.

We can design cards to match your website or compliment your existing stationery designs, as a stand alone design and print service, or set and print cards of your own design.
