Business Card Design Information & Guidelines
This is the portion of your design that will be trimmed off when the card is cut to the final size. Its purpose is to make sure your design or image reaches right to the very edge of the cards, leaving no unsightly white edges.
If you’re designing cards before you upload, you’ll need to make your artwork ‘Full Bleed’ size to account for this. You’ll find a list of ‘Full Bleed’ recommended sizes here, or we have a range of templates available for every product.
This is the final size of your cards, after the ‘bleed’ has been cut off.Safe area
This is an area inside the ‘Trim’. Being smaller than your final card, the safe area is kept well away from blades and cutting machines, and so this is where you should place your most important information or sections of your design. Anything outside of this area runs a risk of being cut off!

Images from digital cameras by default are set to RGB colours. In order to maintain the printing quality, we would suggest converting the image or graphic into CMYK base colours. This is because CMYK is commonly used for high quality printing purpose and gives the final print a more realistic view. You may also need to adjust color level, brightness and contrast of your image or graphic to suit your preferences.
The standard format for graphic or image required is JPEG, PDF or PNG file type. Images from digital cameras are by default in JPEG format.
The most important part of image and graphic will be the size or resolution of the image. If the resolution is too low, when enlarging for prints, the image may be pixelated. Our minimum requirement is 300dpi.
For typography, please ensure that the text size required is at least at 6pt. It is recommended for you to create outline with at least 0.5pt and above thickness for your text. This is to prevent the text from blurry and unclear after the final print.
If you are uncertain or unclear of the requirement and guideline, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance and clarification.
