Card Design Specifications

For pre-pay orders of 500+ cards we are happy to provide custom printed cards at no additional charge. All cards are printed on thick, 120lb cover vellum stock.  We can provide templates or you can start from scratch.

Please follow the instructions below for creating and submitting your card design.  See the Templates section to download pre-made templates.

Design Specifications

No matter what the card size or orientation, please make sure your design includes the following:

Resolution: 300 PPI (pixels per inch)

Bleed: 1/4″ Do NOT include trim marks.
Example: If you are designing a 5″ x 7″ card, the final dimensions will be 5.25″x7.25″ and the outer 1/8″ will be trimmed from each side.

Color Space: CMYK (CMYK vs. RGB)

Final File Type: PDF or *Design File

*If you provide a design file (Ai, PSD, etc.) please include or embed all linked files and outline any text.

Text & Graphics

Keep all text and important design elements 1/8″ away from the trim line so as to not have anything get cut off in the trimming process.

Design elements on the writing side of your card are optional and the pricing may vary. Please leave plenty of room for the Handwrytten message.  The less room you leave, the shorter your message will be.

Note: The pricing of two-sided cards may vary from one-sided cards.
