Do you have guidelines for file creation?
Yes, both our online designer and Start Files for external programs contain guidelines for preparing artwork.
ONLINE DESIGNER Our online designer contains two (2) guidelines:
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.
EXTERNAL PROGRAM Download one of our START FILES in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, JPEG or PDF. Each file contains pre-formatted guidelines with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare your artwork using an external program. Be sure to verify the correct Product Specifications prior to uploading your design.
Do you have Start Files for each product?
Yes, download our START FILES in PSD, AI (Version 9 or newer), JPEG or PDF format to begin designing.
Follow the step-by-step guidelines on how to prepare your artwork (files), setup instructions, save instructions and PDF export settings.
