Submission specifications for classic business cards

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, material, and printing method used.

Frequently asked questions for classic business cards

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 classic business cards is:
    • Next Day
    • 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 classic business cards 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.
        Which carriers are used for the delivery?
        • For the delivery of your classic business cards we use multiple carriers. Because of the highest reliability, in most cases we use UPS or DPD.
        • UPS
        • Other carriers we use are DHL and even our own courier service. These carriers are 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?
          • The classic business cards 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.

          Excellent First Order Paul Boddy 16.09.2021

          Nice prompt delivery by UPs, which was unexpected. Really pleased with the finished article. The materials, finish and colour match are excellent. For the price paid, I am seriously impressed.

          Good price. Good product. DH Griffith 9.09.2021

          Good price. Good product. Good value. Final agreement on product needed before going to print. Needs to be clearer about when and how to upload.

          Excellent customers service Paulina 8.09.2021

          Excellent customers service! We have been using helloprint for a few years now and their customer service is excellent. There are occasional hickups with the orders but they are quickly resolved. Special thanks to Angela who dealt with 2 of our last issues - one was our fault. You are a great asset to the team!

          Hello Print really are the best Matt Canning 3.09.2021

          We use Hello Print for alot of our outdoor event marketing products. In my opinion, Hello Print go above and beyond the call of duty every single time. Their customer service representatives get back to you almost instantly with any help you may need and their products really stand out from their competition. In a time where not many get credit for what they do. I would just like to say that I cannot recommend Hello Print and their staff enough. Thank you all for what you do. I will be back soon :)

          Very happy with our experience Jodie Fleck 31.08.2021

          Very happy with our experience. We paid extra for quick delivery which they were unable to fulfil so they refunded the extra, gave us a 10% discount for a future order and then we got the delivery only 1 day late. Also, the product is great - very happy customer :)

          Beautiful orders of service Kerry 28.08.2021

          I contacted HelloPrint via their chat service with queries about printing the order of service for my late Aunts funeral , I was pointed in the right direction and placed my order a few days later , I was nervous because they were for such an important day for my family. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and know my family will keep the orders of service for years to come. It was a very easy process , very reasonably priced with a great turnaround time. Thank you.

          An excellent print company Alan Smith. Earth Wool & Fire. 20.08.2021

          An excellent print company. Pricing is very competetive. Turnaround is fast. Quality of print and a wide portfolio of products. I am a published illustrator/author and this is my go to print business every time.

          If I could give more than 5 stars I… Sms 20.08.2021

          If I could give more than 5 stars I would!! The quality and packaging for our brochures were outstanding - completely exceeded expectations for the price we paid. Fast delivery with good communication from DPD. Danielle from the online help chat function made the process seamless - she addressed my concerns and helped ensure the design was uploaded correctly to prevent any delays. I will not hesitate to use this service again - please pass on my absolute gratitude to all members of the team involved. Thank you again

          Really good quality Iona Mackenzie 16.08.2021

          Really good quality, good customer service and easy to use website! They also have good prices in comparison with rest of competitors :)

          Helloprint great service every time! Mrs Hamilton 16.08.2021

          I have used HelloPrint many times now. Having compared prices they are the cheapest I have found. Website is really easy to use. Customer service are quick to respond. Importantly the quality of the print is great and the delivery is fast. I cannot fault the product and service and would highly recommend them.

          Very satisfied with Helloprint Graham Shemmans 15.08.2021

          I cannot speak highly enough of Helloprint. I was first attracted by their pricing and delivery times. I was given a quote and after an initial follow up call I was not constantly badgered from that time until placing the final order some months later. Their original price was held. I was able to speak to a helpful and clearly spoken adviser on a UK landline which was answered promptly. The product arrived on the precise date and time promised and I was given a tracking and redirect option in advance. The quality of the final product was excellent and as good if not better than that which I have received from the "market leaders" and private printers whom I have used over the last ten years for a similar product which was a 24 page A5 colour booklet. The only minor criticism I can level is that one of the boxes was damaged in transit by the carrier and had burst open but this is probably to be expected given the weght of boxes and the volume of freight these people handle. Overall I was thoroughly satisfied with the service I received from Helloprint

          Great company greg toogood 13.08.2021

          Great company - Very easy to use website - fast delivery - great prices - great service and fantastic product! Thanks to the team at Hello Print :-)
