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.

Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 30% per side

Can I write on my card?

Yes, it is possible to write on the Plantable Postcards. We cannot assure that it will look as smooth as when writing on uncoated paper, as the card is made of coarser material. Please note that the seeds inside the card are visible as little black dots.

Tip: Use a pen, fineliner or marker with water-based ink and preferably with a soft point for easiest writing on seed paper.

Will my Plantable Postcards be delivered folded?

No, your Plantable Postcards will not be folded.

How does 'seed paper' work?

  1. Moist the card or paper;
  2. Place in a pot or garden in a sunny place and cover with a small layer of soil;
  3. Water every day to keep moist, the seeds will sprout and start growing;
  4. Take good care of the small sprouts, for the best result, good luck!

Growing tips

The seeds within the paper thrive when planted during the sunny days of early spring to summer. Once you've tucked them into the soil, expect sprouts to pop up in just 5-10 days. Give them plenty of water, sunshine, and a little TLC, and you'll soon have a lovely patch of flowers, herbs, or veggies to enjoy.
