Artwork and PDF requirements for Business Cards

  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished job, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a "quiet area" to ensure nothing important is too near to the edge of the finished item; so please leave a 5mm inner margin for anything other than backgrounds
  • We recommend that any Digital Embossing stops 1mm from the trimmed edge
  • Supply files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • Image resolution should be 300dpi or more
