Design guidelines
We recommend using our templates and guides for preparing your print-ready PDF.

You can download our guides and templates in the template section. Remember to delete the template layers before exporting your design to PDF.

If you already have a design, no worries; we accept other file formats, including JPEG, PNG, or EPS.

For photographic content, high-resolution JPEGs are recommended, preferably without compression. For graphics or text-based content, we recommend print-ready, vector-based PDFs. For content that is a combination of graphics and photography, we suggest using print-ready PDFs to ensure the best quality.

Use CMYK as the colour mode.

Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2). 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.

Add 3 mm bleed and keep 4 mm safety margin

During production, there might be a slight cut deviation. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Add a 3 mm bleed around all edges of your design.
  • Keep important elements 4 mm away from the edge or folding lines.
  • Avoid using borders or frames on smaller formats like labels or business cards.
Text and fonts specifications (Min. font size is 6 pt)

For this product, the minimum font size is 6 pt. To avoid any issues, we recommend the following:

  • Fonts must be embedded or outlined.
  • If your design contains small black text, make sure it is 100 % black (Cyan: 0 Magenta: 0 Yellow: 0 Black: 100).

Note that we don't check spelling or typographical errors.

Check line thickness.

Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.

Check your artwork for overprint.

Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Centre.

Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.

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%.

Using a border/frame is not recommended

It is recommended to count with a margin of error when stacks of copies are trimmed during the production process. This slight cutting deviation is usually not noticeable, nevertheless, we recommend avoiding adding borders smaller than 20 mm in your design for any product smaller than an A4 (210 x 297 mm). Otherwise, the design might end up looking off-centre.

  • Please 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). This way, the product can be moved into production on time. The deadline is always communicated at 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.

  • Please 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 we use?
  • For the production of Compliment Slips, we use the following technique(s):

  • Digital printing: Uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to a large home printer, and is cheaper than Litho printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are fewer starting costs, fewer components involved, and no ink drying time required.

Will the envelopes that come with the compliment cards also be printed?
  • No, the matching envelopes are not being printed. These are blank envelopes. Would you like envelopes with a personal design? Please have a look at our envelopes.

What materials can I choose from?
  • 290gr pearl: choose pearl paper if you want your cards to have a real glamour look. The shimmering effect of the cards fits perfectly.

  • 340 gsm offset: This paper usually gets chosen because it is writable and has a robust quality. This paper is also qualified to stamp on.

  • 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.

From which papertype are the matching envelopes made?
  • The matching envelopes are made of 90 grams offset paper.

Which carriers are used for the delivery?
  • For the delivery of your Compliment Slips we use multiple carriers. We use our most reliable carriers, which in most cases are UPS or DPD.
    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).

I can't find the product I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
  • If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. It is also possible to request binding in another colour. We will send you our offer within 1 working day. Depending on the complexity, this can take a bit longer.

Paper Type

What is the difference between full colour and PMS colours?

    • Full colour printing is the more cost-effective option and entails the use of four colours: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK). It involves combining multiple print orders onto a single printing sheet to optimise efficiency and reduce costs. With full colour printing, you can enjoy a diverse palette of colours, shades, and gradients.
      Choose between single-sided or double-sided full colour printing and create eye-catching letterheads!
      Keep in mind that slight colour variations may arise between different print runs due to disparities in printing equipment, materials, and environmental factors.

    • PMS stands for Pantone Matching System, in which colours are identified by numbering. As a result, a PMS colour is exactly the same at every printer. When opting for PMS printing, your order is specifically set, printed, and finished to provide the utmost accuracy in representing your colours.
      You can choose to print your letterhead paper with one, two, or three PMS colours on one or both sides.
      If your design has more than three colours, full colour printing is the ideal choice.

Lamination types:

    • Single-sided UV Glossy

      UV-varnish: The UV-varnish finish gives your flyer an ultra glossy appearance, making it look quite luxurious.

      Single-sided UV Glossy
    • Single-sided Gloss lamination

      Gloss lamination: The glossy lamination adds an extra layer to your paper. Similar to the glossy finish, this also gives your design a sheen and is perfect for photographs as the colours show up quite vivid. The added layer also acts as extra protection.

      Single-sided Gloss lamination
    • Single-sided Matte lamination

      Matte lamination: The matte lamination finish adds an extra layer to your paper. Similar to the matte finish, this is also subtle and is perfect if your design is text heavy. The added layer also acts as extra protection.

      Single-sided Matte lamination
    • Single-sided Velvet lamination

      Velvet touch: This material is composed of coated paper with an extra velvet lamination. With this finishing, your product has a velvet soft finish, extremely smooth to the touch for a premium look and feel. Ideal for a luxury brand wanting to make the first impression right.
