How to Print Your Business Cards

How to upload your print files

We encourage you to upload your files for your business card in whatever way best suits you, whether as individual files or a single, combined file for multiple business card designs. To ensure a sharper image, we also advise uploading print files at 300dpi. Images lower than 100dpi may appear pixelated.

Bleed

Please leave a 3mm bleed and 5mm quiet area on all business cards.

Spot colour inks

You must supply your business card print file set with spot colour inks. Ensure the file is a PDF with Pantone or HKS colour set to spot colour ink and labelled with the relevant reference number (e.g. Pantone 287C). We cannot print multiple spot colour inks; only a single spot colour ink is available per business card print file. We also recommend setting the spot colour ink to ‘Knockout’ instead of overprinting a background colour.

Completing your order

We require you to fill all placeholders before completing your order. If you do not have enough content to fill them all, you must add blank pages.

If you are intending to order a longer run of art prints, but would like digital colour reproduction, please contact us.
