Business card Print Specification

  1. Color Mode: All files must be in CMYK color mode. No exception. If the file contains RGB colors you may get unexpected color shift print results.
  2. Document size:  Always set the document size to 3.625″x2.125″ at the beginning. The actual business card size is 3.5″x2″.
  3. Set the bleed: All print requires setting or adding the bleed of 1/8″ inch around the 3.5″x2″  business card size so avoid white edges after cutting the card. Some designer uses 3.75″x2.25″ as their bleed size. That’s fine with us.
  4. Use of types: Outline all the text to graphics to overcome the possible type/font incompatibility and text flow issues.
  5. File Type: We accept the following file types.  .pdf .ai, .psd .eps .jpeg, or .jpg .tiff .svg file types. Make sure texts are outlined in .ai and .psd file types.
  6. Color Matching: Be cautious with certain colors. ie. Reflex Blue, Pink, default black, and Turquoise.
  7. Print Safe zone: Position all the text and important graphics 1/16″ away from the edge of the paper so does not cut off during the cutting process.
  8. File resolution: We recommend a 300 dpi resolution file and the use of vector graphic image files wherever possible to get smoother text and exact graphic positioning where required.

  1. Set the document size to 3.5 x2″, set the print resolution to 300 dpi, and make sure to set the color mode to CMYK color.
  2. Make sure all the text is inside the Safe Zone.
  3. Now, change the document size to 3.625″x2.125″. This adds 1/16″ (.0625″) around the business card by setting the bleed. Do not reposition the text or any of the graphical elements on the business card afterward, yet.
  4. Finally, if you have a background color other than white color extend out the background color to the new document size edge. Do the same for any graphical element that needs to extend out the to edge of the business card.
  5. Save the file as .pdf or jpg. Although other file types are acceptable we recommend these two types.

Our recommendation on 16pt glossy business card with UV coating

When your business card design has a dark background color that bleeds to the edges of the card, we recommend selecting a glossy finish business card to prevent the edges from flaking off. Additionally, the glossy finish coating prevents the card from getting mutilated and maintains its color for longer.
