IMPORTANT: Along with our standard business card printing guidelines as seen below, we also have special requirements for cards with Spot UV on them:

  • Please supply in your artwork PDF an extra page named 'Spot UV' that contains ONLY the elements that require the application of Spot UV. These elements must be done as a 100% Spot Colour (example: 100% Cyan or Magenta)

Please remember to follow these specifications when creating your artwork:

  • Set up your file with 3mm bleed and 6mm margins on each side
  • Save the file as PDF with 3 mm of bleed and crop-marks (we do not require other printers' marks)
  • Please ensure that the background images or colours extend right to the bleed margins
  • Please ensure that your text and other important images, details etc are situated within the margins
  • Ensure all images are set to a maximum of 300dpi with 150dpi being the lowest acceptable resolution, CMYK colour only, with all fonts and images embedded or converted to outline.

This will help us to ensure the quality of the final product and complete them quickly. Please notice that if your files don't meet the above requirements, they will be rejected.

The images below are examples of how you MUST have your file set up before uploading.
