Design guidelines
Add 3 mm bleed.

To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.

Keep 4 mm safety margin.

Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.

Use the PMS colour code(s).

Use uncoated PMS colours for products printed on uncoated paper (offset paper, Biotop and Conqueror Vergé), and use coated PMS colours for products printed on machine coated papers (gloss and silk), and every other product printed with PMS colours (gifts, textiles etc.).

Resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Force Colour Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Colour Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats.

Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.

Frequently asked questions
What is this product? And what can I use it for?
  • A business card is a card that has your company information and contact details printed on it. Business cards are the best way to make a positive first impression on potential customers or business partners. Make sure to stick in their minds and provide them with a way of contacting you!

  • This product can be used:

  • • Exchange company/contact information

  • • To represent your company's identity or brand

What is pantone printing?
  • Pantone colours are often used when a design only contains 1 to 4 colours. Pantone colours have a unique code within the Pantone Matching System (PMS), so that the result of colours used is always the same. PMS is mainly used for: Letterheads, envelopes, business cards and compliment cards.

What materials can I choose from?

  • 400gr silk MC: This paper is the thickest out of our range of materials and are 4x as thick as printing paper. This material is mainly used for unique and exclusive affairs. Thickness: 0,4mm.

What is the fastest possible turnaround?
  • The fastest possible turnaround varies depending on the specifications you select, and will always be stated at the bottom of the page. To make sure that your order is delivered at the indicated time, it is important that we receive your file with your design for the product by the stated cut-off time. This way, the product can be moved into production promptly.
    Please note: The delivery date shifts a day every time the deadline for submission has passed. This is also the case if the file is rejected by us and corrected artwork isn't submitted before the next cut-off time.

Which production techniques do we use?
  • For the production of Business Cards (PMS), we use the following technique(s):


  • Offset Lithography/Litho printing: This technique uses wet ink and aluminium and rubber plates to transfer images and text onto paper sheets, resulting in sharp, vibrant, and consistent prints. While this method may require slightly more setup than digital printing, it's the most cost-effective option for larger print runs.

Which carriers are used for the delivery?
  • For the delivery of Business Cards (PMS), we use our most reliable carriers which, in most cases, are UPS or DPD.

  • UPS

  • We also use DHL and our own courier service. However, these carriers are only used for certain products (depending on the size, the turnaround and the quantity).

  • The Business Cards (PMS) chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.

  • Depending on the complexity, this can take a bit longer.

What is cutting deviation?
  • Business Cards (PMS) are printed on large sheets, which are then cropped to the final size. To maximize efficiency, the sheets are stacked and cut in large quantities at the same time. It is possible that the stack of paper shifts slightly, resulting in a cutting deviation. In order to limit the possibility of this, please pay attention to the bleed and safety margins when submitting your artwork.

Will my Business Cards (PMS) be folded upon delivery?
  • No, the Business Cards (PMS) will be delivered unfolded. The Business Cards (PMS) has folding creases so you can fold them very easily.
