If you will be mailing your artwork:
For logos and artwork provide large, clean art to insure the highest quality plastic card. We scan images/photographs sent by mail up to 8.5" wide X 11" high.

If you are scanning your artwork yourself and sending a digital copy by email:
Images should be scanned at 600 dpi or greater at a minimum size of 3.6" wide X 2.1" high and saved in CMYK format as high-quality .psd, .jpg, .jpeg, .cdr, .ai, .pdf

If submitting a complete pre-produced card layout via the web, your design must meet these guidelines:

SEND US YOUR PDF

The preffered format is CMYK mode PDF with embedded fonts. We do not accept QuarkXpress or Indesign files with your fonts as attached files. If using these page layout programs, please send us a "Print Quality" PDF of your design with your fonts "embedded". We will accept files as an EPS where all the text is made into outlines. If submitting as an EPS, Please create OUTLINES of ALL TEXT and save as an Adobe Illustrator .EPS file. This will insure that there are no problems imaging your file.

SEND US YOUR PHOTOSHOP FILE

The layout should be sized to 3.6" wide X 2.1" high for business cards and 3.475" wide X 2.225" High for Credit(Gift or Loyalty Cards) size X 300 dpi with all text within a 3/16" border to allow for cropping. Please see our Photoshop® design template for these specifics. For best results, sending us your original "layered" Photoshop file is recommended. However a "flattened" image should also be provided at 300 dpi or greater and saved in CMYK format as a high-quality .psd, .jpg, .jpeg, .cdr, .ai, .pdf .

DIE CUTTING AND BLEEDS

Due to cutting variances, card designs with a "framed border" are not recommended. A possible slight shift in cutting will cause the printed frame border to appear off center or uneven.

Image "bleed" is where you want the image to fill a background completely to the edges of the card. The image must extend beyond the trim area so that color will go edge to edge if there is a slight variance in the trim cuts. Image bleed is defined in each template. Please setup your image bleed to the specifications outlined within the template for the plastic card product you are going to be ordering.
