Card Design Tips

While you should feel free to be very creative with your card, card designs are generally:

  • Full color on the front and black text on the back — but we can print full color on the back, if desired.
  • Include the company logo on the front to build brand awareness.
  • Place a disclaimer, company contact information, and magstripe/barcode (if applicable) on the back.

Design File Preparation

Bleed Settings
  • Prepare your design file at 300+ dpi in the CMYK color mode
  • For a rich black in CMYK, use: 80C, 80M, 80Y, 100K
  • Convert all fonts to outlines
  • Please send "layered files" when possible
  • Please make sure all “placed images” are embedded
  • All text and critical imagery MUST stay within the Live Area (card cutting can vary 1/16th of an inch from this line)

Accepted File Formats

Illustrator(.ai) Photoshop(.psd) PDF(.pdf) InDesign(.indd) JPEG(.jpeg) Quark
