What are the file specifications for all products?
For a complete list of available products and their file specifications, refer to our Quick Specs. To submit at the proper dimensions, please design your artboard to the specified resolution and guidelines.
At Overnight Prints, we allow printing to the edge of the products and we take pride in having the tightest cutting margins available. These margins are 1/8" to 1/16" in between the Safe Zone (red) and Full Bleed line (green) as illustrated in our previews. Please see Guidelines & Cutting for a more comprehensive explanation or download a Start File.
SAFE ZONEIllustrates the cutting margin. We can potentially cut the product up to this point. By our policy, anything extending outside of this area risks being trimmed.
FULL BLEEDIf you wish to have colored backgrounds or images continue to the edge of the product, they must be extended past the Safe Zone to the Full Bleed margin. If they do not continue to the Full Bleed line, you will most likely end up with white strips along the edge of the product due to the cutting tolerance.
What do your two colored lines mean in the preview?
Overnight Prints shows two color guidelines to ensure the submitted design meets our specifications. Please view GUIDELINES & CUTTING for a more comprehensive explanation.
We allow printing to the edge of the products and we take pride in having the tightest cutting margins available. These margins are 1/8" to 1/16" in between the Safe Zone (red) and Full Bleed line (green) as illustrated in our previews.
Safe Zone (Red): Place all important text and images well within the Safe Zone. The innermost line illustrates the cutting margin. We can potentially cut the cards up to this point. Anything extending outside this area risks being trimmed.
Bleed Edge (Green): Extend your background image past the Bleed Edge. Unless designing with a border, it is highly recommended to size image files all the way to this outer line to ensure the background fully extends to the edge of the card.
