  • WHAT ARE SAFE AREA, TRIM AND BLEED AREA?

    SAFE AREAMake sure any text or sensitive information is contained in the box, otherwise it could get cut off.

    TRIMThis is where we aim to cut your cards.

    BLEED AREAWe cut the bleed area off your cards to avoid white strips on the edge. Make sure any images or colours fill this area.

     

    Safe Area, Trim, Bleed

  • 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.

    Size Tip

  • TIP 4 - RESOLUTION

    If your design looks blocky on the screen, you will need to get an image with higher resolution. 400dpi is recommended. (*We recommend to save your artwork as vector based PDF format.)

  • TIP 5 - BORDER

    If your design has a border thinner than 0.25″, it may result in an uneven border thickness when printed and cut, so please avoid them where possible.
