DESIGN NOTES:

Your artwork should be a high quality image file, eg. tif, cpt, psd, high quality jpg, large enough to be printed at a size of at least 1825 x 1311 pixels (A6), 2516x1819 (A5) or 2516x1240 (DL) pixels for good results. We do not print images from Microsoft Word documents. We may be able to redraw your design from this at no additional charge, however we need to see your file before we can give you a decision on whether we can print your design. We cannot print from Microsoft Publisher documents. We can only accept pdf files if they fit the exact dimensions specified below.

If you have a simple design (eg. a single photo, text on plain background, text with image alongside) you can send us the text/images along with information on the layout, font, colour etc. and we will set up the design for you. This will normally be included in the card price.
If you are sending a ready-to-print design please ensure that it matches our design specifications below.
If you need us to set up a more complicated layout or design then there may be an additional charge.

Design Specifications - if you want to send a full design ready for printing the specifications are as follows:

  • Cut greetings card size (folded):
    A6 Cards - 148mm x 105mm (1748 x 1240 pixels at 300dpi)
    A5
    Cards - 210mm x 148mm (2480 x 1748 pixels at 300dpi)
    DL Cards - 210mm x 99mm (2480 x 1169 pixels at 300dpi)
  • Trim and bleed areas - please ensure that images and text are at least 3mm inside the cut dimensions of your design. Background photos and other background images or colours should extend to the outer edges of the document 3mm outside the trimmed size.
  • Resolution - 300-600dpi
  • Optimum file size - not more than 10MB
  • Colour - CMYK four colour printing

Downloadable templates - we have templates in different formats that you can download and use to set up your cards or to check that your images are the correct size. You can find these on our templates page.

Please note that because of the time and work involved we can only supply a layout proof by email once you have placed an order. We do not supply one-off printed proofs.

Any questions? Please email us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

CHRISTMAS CARDS:

Our cards are perfect for business or personal Christmas greetings. You can send us your own festive image and text for printing, or choose one our designs and we'll print your greeting inside. If you'd like a seasonal message or your logo printed on the front of the cards anywhere on the image we can print those too, most of the cards have space for your text on the front - just let us know what and where. (We don't print our own logo or details anywhere on your cards.)
