Submission specifications for PVC Cards LoCo Magnetic Strip

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. Exclusive finishes need to be within the safety margin
Use CMYK as the color mode.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the color mode, not RGB. Use colormode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colormode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.
Resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Force Color Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Color 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.
Use the right values for full color black.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black color. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full color printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Check line thickness
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
Check your artwork on overprint.
Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint. Unless you want this effect in your design. The degree of transparency in printing depends on the ink, paper, and printing method used.

  • PVC: choose PVC if you are looking for solid material, which is comparable to a credit card.
  • PVC-transparent: the see-through effect gives this PVC cards something special. Because the cards are translucent, the are only printed on one side.
    What is this product exactly? And what can I use it for?
    • A business card is a card that contains your company / contact information and can be printed completely according to your wishes. It's the best way to make a lasting first impression on prospective customers / business partners.

    • This product is used to / as:
    • Introduce people to your business
    • Exchange company/contact information
      What is the fastest possible turnaround?
      • The fastest possible turnaround for PVC Cards LoCo Magnetic Strip is:
      • 7 working days
      • Note only applicable for products which require your design: 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, on time (also called cut-off time). In this way the product can be moved into production on time. The deadline is always communicated in the final step when putting your product together and in the box on the right which details your entire order.
      • The cut-off time for your printed item may vary. This depends on the combination you choose. This has to do with the manufacturing technique and / or the order quantities.
      • NOTE: The product delivery 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 supplied before the next cut off time.
        Which production techniques do you use?
        • For the production of your PVC Cards LoCo Magnetic Strip we use the following production technique(s):
        • Digital (up to 250 pieces): printed on professional HP Indigo printers, directly after your order is received. Digital printing is cheaper in lower order quantities.

        • Offset Lithography printing or Litho printing makes it possible to provide larger quantities at unbeatable prices. This technique creates images and text with wet ink and transferred to each paper sheet with aluminium and rubber plates. This method is more extensive than its 'digital’ counterpart because of the different printing materials that are used. Still, it is the most cost-effective option when you order bigger printed batches.

            Although I use Helloprint all the time my latest order was something very different and it was nicer than I expected! I am thrilled with it all.

            I ordered 3 pvc banners from Helloprint. The proof was sent back within 2 hours. I made a couple of adjustments and after approving the final proof I received the banners 3 days later. Fantastic service and delighted with the final result.....and good value. Would not hesitate to recommend them for any printing work.

            Very Very Good John Beverley 10.04.2021

            We are now in a world where poor service, late deliveries and poor quality seem to be the norm, it has been a refreshing change to do business with you. I really do not understand how you are able to do what you do. Placed an order on Wednesday and delivered to perfection the following day. That is outstanding service that deserves mentioning. Thank you very much!

            Number 1 print company :) Giulia Coppola 4.04.2021

            Number 1 print company :) I have used HelloPrint many times for myself and for the business I work for. A professional site I can rely on as provide good quality products in a very short space of time. I usually print posters & business cards from this site and it is my number 1 site so far. :)

            Love my Recycled Flyers RajyPajy 2.04.2021

            Loved the fact that my flyers were made from recycled paper. Easy online process. Plus I had choices of different recycled paper. They also checked it manually for me as I wasn't sure.. nice touch! Delivery was free and very quick. Definitely use them again!

            High Quality-Great Service Bill Shaw 30.03.2021

            Two years ago, I was finding it increasingly difficult to find high quality printing at an affordable price. Since changing to Helloprint all my printing problems are sorted. As the Editor and Business Manager of a popular Community magazine I need a consistent, reliable service. This is by far the best company for printing, price and delivery, even through a pandemic!

            I have used them twice for two different banners. The website is easy to use, quick turn around time and customer service I received was great, very helpful and changed an order with no problems or hesitations. The products I’ve bought are well worth the money and are a really great price.

            PVC Cards LoCo Magnetic Strip

            This LoCo PVC card is great for data that is often changed, or has a shorter life span than the HiCo magnetic strip. Since they are appropriate for different systems, check with your system manager before ordering. But as this option is often used for hotel passes, you will be sure to wow your guests, especially when you customise this card with your unique design.
