Here are some helpful tips when uploading your own design or using our template editor for any of our products for print.
WHAT ARE SAFE AREA, TRIM AND BLEED AREA?
Make sure any text or sensitive information is contained in the box, otherwise it could get cut off.
This is where we aim to cut your cards.
We cut the bleed area off your cards to avoid white strips on the edge. Make sure any images or colours fill this area.
TIP 1 - SAFE AREA
Make sure any sensitive design or information is contained within the safe area otherwise they may get cut off in the final product. 1/4″ from the edges is recommended.
TIP 2 - BLEED
Make sure your design is the right size.
TIP 3 - SIZE
Please set-up correct size ! It is common mistake that delays turnaround because job can start print only after proof confirmed.
TIP 4 - RESOLUTION
You can use image and save as PDF with over 300dpi
BUT still the best file format is VECTOR BASED PDF created from Adobe Illustrator.
TIP 5 - BORDER
Border design is not recommended. If you really wanna print, please make the border as thick as possible.
