Please review the information below to ensure your files have been set up correctly. Incorrectly setup files will delay your job and may incur a $35 re-proofing fee or an additional $30 setup fee.

  • File format: We only accept PDF file formats.
  • Bleed/Edge-to-Edge Printing: All business cards, regardless of size, require a 1/16" bleed on all four sides. See more.
  • Safety zone: We highly recommend having at least a 1/4" clear area on all four sides and placing all text at least 1/4" away from all edges. 
  • Fonts: Ensure all fonts have been outlined in your artwork, so they don't change on the final print. See more.
  • Color setting: Your files must be created in CMYK format; we print in CMYK ONLY. Make sure you set up your artwork or convert to CMYK format before uploading files; this will enable you to view the best color representation on your final printed piece.  See more.
  • Resolution: Your photos and graphics should have at least a 300 DPI to have high-quality print. See more.
  • Small borders: We highly discourage outer borders smaller than 1/8"; see more. We cut several stacks of sheets at a time, and the slightest imperfection in the cut with jobs with very thin borders becomes obvious and can appear incorrect on the final piece.
  • Rich black ink: If you'd like your final printed piece to have the deepest black color, use the formula C=60, M=40, Y=40, and K=100. If you leave K=100, it will still be black but not as deep. See more
