Submission specifications for Business Cards Recycled paper

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 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.

Frequently asked questions for Business Cards Recycled paper

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
    Which production techniques do you use?

    • Digital printing uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to large home printer, and is cheaper than ‘litho’ printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, less components involved, and no ink drying time necessary.
      What is the fastest possible turnaround?
      • The fastest possible turnaround for Business Cards Recycled paper is:
      • 3 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 yellow bar on the product page, above the "Add to shopping cart" button.
      • 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.
        I can't find the product I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
        • The Business Cards Recycled paper that is chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.
        • If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. We will send you our offer within 1 working day.
        • Depending on the complexity this can take a bit longer.

        This company is absolutely amazing!!! Amy W 2.08.2020

        This company is absolutely amazing!!! After dealing with all the UK printers as I am a graphic designer, HelloPrint impresses me again and again. Nothing is too much trouble, they really go above and beyond for all their customers from checking files, proofing and helping answer all my questions when needed. All my customers are super happy with their print. If I could give this company a 10/5 stars I sure would as they deserve it. Thanks to Ben & the team for being amazing as always.

        Posters using Etsy downloads Miriam Baguley 1.08.2020

        I ordered three custom sized posters for a birthday present using downloads from Etsy. They arrived promptly and are perfectly sized and of a very high quality (much better than I was expecting). They look amazing and I will use this service again and would highly recommend to others. Thanks!

        Local print shop expensive Hello came to my rescue excellent staff service and quality and it was on a small order of 50 flyers Highly recommended Edward

        Placed a small order for flyers to the… Frank Barr 28.07.2020

        Placed a small order for flyers to the value of £39 for 1000 units after having received a quote from my normal local branch of a large franchised chain of printers who quoted £137 for the identical items. I have no doubt that these chains do not in fact do their own printing but simply subcontract the orders out to other printers such as Helloprint so I decide to give Helloprint a go. I found the service and assistance I received to be second to none,I am so pleased with the results and service that I am about to place a second repeat order with in the next few days and given the cost savings, intend placing all future printing requirements with HELLOPRINT.

        Excellent quality and very quick… David Million 23.07.2020

        Excellent quality and very quick delivery - very impressed with service provided.

        Excellent quality Paula 23.07.2020

        Excellent quality, really good price, thoroughly checked before printing. Speedy turn around. Highly recommended

        I couldn't be more impressed! Matt Smith 18.07.2020

        First time using HelloPrint and I couldn't be more impressed. I ordered a PVC banner which was very competitively priced based on my research of other UK companies and gave a good range of options for how you wanted it to be finished. The design details gave me all the guidance needed to get my design right and the final product has come out exactly as I had hoped. Add in that it actually was delivered a few days earlier than estimated and I couldn't fault it at all. I've already put in a follow-up order and I'm sure it won't be the last time I use HelloPrint. Definitely recommend highly based on my experience.

        It was really easy to order Oscar 18.07.2020
