Submission specifications for Laminated 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.
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.
Here you can find the customized submission specifications for Spot-UV or Foil printing.
We have customized submission specifications for Spot-UV printing. You can find them here.
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.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt.
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.
Keep 4 mm safety margin from the fold.
Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the fold.

  • 400gr silk MC + matt + Spot UV: the spot UV gives an extra dimension to your business card. The glossy accents makes your design extra vivid. PLEASE NOTE: for business cards with spot UV there are different guidelines.
  • 400gsm silk MC + velvet laminate: With this material your product looks and feels very solid and professional, plus it has a velvet soft finish. Thickness: 0,41mm.
    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 Laminated 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 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.
        Which production techniques do you use?
        • For the production of your Laminated 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 laminated 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 Laminated Business Cards that is chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.

            • Depending on the complexity this can take a bit longer.

            Super and superior service from start… Timothy Miles 27.05.2020

            Super and superior service from start to finish. Helped me with drafting, design and technical stuff re downloading and reproducing logos and pics. Result was just how I’d envisaged the poster to be but totally in the dark as to how to produce it. A special shout out to Sanne for all the help, guidance and abundance of patience and professionalism.

            Quality Service - first class Dr Chris Perry 27.05.2020

            When I uploaded my business card design, the logo was not good enough quality. They let me know and replaced that logo with higher spec. They saved me a waste of money. It shows their commitment to excellence and ensuring a great result for their customers. Cannot recommend they more highly.

            Great company jennie cook 25.05.2020

            Great service, even better communication. Product arrived on time and is perfect. Will use again.

            Quick and high quality service Jenny Hosty 25.05.2020

            Quick and high quality service, for a very good price! Helloprint printed our wedding invites and they looked exactly as we had hoped. Would certainly use again and recommend to friends.

            Ordered 1 flag for a birthday and was perfect for that anon 24.05.2020

            Easy to use as I wanted to create a fast for a birthday (although I have graphic design as part of my job so it all made sense). But it was approved quickly and delivered on time - I did pay for faster delivery as had a deadline.

            Recommended printer Genevieve 23.05.2020

            I have ordered a booklet for promoting my work. As artist I have very precise requirement. I am most happy with the final result. The photos are printed in very good quality. Their prices are quite reasonable too.

            Thanks guys John Cooper 18.05.2020

            Thanks guys, my bit of fun booklets will be great to make a few pounds for the local nature reserve. You were far to professional for my project, but helped throughout never the less. Hope I need to order more... Best wishes and stay safe John

            Putting their customers first! Mr David C 13.05.2020

            These guys are a fantastic company - I will definitely use them again. Print quality is much better than other online printers and the prices are brilliant. There was a slight issue with my order when it arrived (out of Helloprint's control, not their fault) but they were quick to rectify. 100% recommended!!

            Small roller display. Neil Gregory 8.05.2020

            I ordered this to aid me with teaching online, the order process was easy. After submitting my image in jpg form it did initially place it the wrong way on the blind, but a quick message to Hello print about the correct layout and a proof was sent. From ordering to it arriving on my door step was less than a week. Well done everyone an excellent product.

            Service was very prompt K Akin 7.05.2020

            Service was very prompt. Customer service was brilliant, will definitely use again.

            Lovely stickers at a good price! Hoping to get more of them to stock on my etsy store /TaitGalleryArt

            Brilliant! Natalie Cannell 6.05.2020

            The quality and speediness of my orders was amazing, I was thrilled to bits when I received my them yesterday, two days earlier than expected. The print and paper quality are second to none and they were packaged really well and securely. The cost for my orders was fantastic too! I also found uploading my artwork really easy and it's great that you can see a proof to approve straight away. I will definitely place further orders at HelloPrint Manchester and will recommend you to all my friends.
