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 all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colourmode 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.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
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 (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.
Fonts should be at least 6 pt.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black colour. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full colour printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
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.
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the fold.
Make sure the alignment and the sequence of the sides are recognizable (we do not check your document in terms of content).
Please be aware that when printing photos there is a tendency for images to be darker and faces to be redder than intended
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.
Does your design contain multiple pages? Ensure that all pages of your design are included in the same file. Similarly, if your design requires printing on both sides, submit the designs in the same file.

Greeting Cards are cards that can be designed according to your wishes. Choose from various shapes, sizes and materials and create a unique product that will stand out in the minds of customers, colleagues, friends and family!
The fastest possible turnaround for Greeting Cards is:
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.
For the production of Greeting Cards, 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.
For the delivery of Greeting Cards, 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).
If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. We aim to get back to you within 2 working days.
No, your Greeting Cards are not automatically printed on both sides. We offer three possibilities for your Greeting Cards:
Blank backside: Your Greeting Cards will be printed on one side only. If you choose this option, you only need to send us the file for the front side.
Personalised backside: Your Greeting Cards will be printed on both sides. You can print different designs on each side.
Standard backside: Your Greeting Cards will be printed on both sides. The front will have your design, and the back will have a standard postcard design. If you choose this option, you only need to send us the file for the front side.
The Metallic Materials, which are gold, silver and white, have a lovely glittery look.
Kraft Material is made from 15 % recycled pulp with visible fibres and has a natural brown colour. If you go for this material, keep in mind that white and unprinted are will appear as the background.
Pearl Marble is 300 gsm with a lovely fine glittery look and sparkles on an off-white background. This material is often used for extra special memories, messages or events.
Biotop is 300gsm, environmentally friendly paper that has a classic look.
Standard is 280 gsm thick and has a perfectly white colour. It is the best universal option as it is suitable for every design.
Glossy material is 300 gsm thick and comes with an extra layer of glossy lamination, which is great for a design with photos as it will bring the memory to life.
Note: Please keep in mind that due to the specificity of these materials, your design may appear slightly different when printed and the material texture may show through.
Everything up to 170 grams will be delivered folded. From and above 250 gsm, your Greeting Cards will be creased, but not folded. This is done to prevent the Greeting Cards from cracking or tearing.
What you see on your screen is backlit by computer monitors and is made up of RBG colours. Print uses the CMYK colour space, and the physical product is light absorbing, so may appear darker than we see on our screens.
