Online Ordering,

Step 1 - Check & Upload your file
     You can now order your simple business cards online. All of the business cards are printed on our ultra thick 14 point cardstock with a UV Gloss coating on both sides. You have the option for the UV Gloss coating on both sides, one side, or not at all. We have many other options available (Spot ink, Spot UV, Different Cardstocks) just contact us for more information on them.

     Refer to our Business Card Pricing Page to find the quantity and printing configurations that fit your needs. If you don't see something that you want on that page, please contact us so we can custom quote your job.

     File Preparation - The only acceptable file formats for business card online ordering at this time is .jpg, .ai, or .eps at 300 dpi at actual size in CMYK format.

  • We prefer the jpg format if your fonts are bigger than 1/8"
  • The reason we like .jpg over bmp or tiff is because there is very little quality loss from the compression and the loss is made up for with the 300dpi Image.
  • If you have small text use a an "eps" file or an "ai" (Adobe Illustrator files). Just make sure to convert fonts to outlines and include all linked files.
  • CMYK is also a must because there is a loss of color gamut from your screen colors (RGB) to actual printed colors (CMYK). To make it easy to understand some bright reds, greens and blues are shaded down when converted from RGB to CMYK.

     When designing your business card design it at a 3.75" x 2.25" area. The extra 1/8" border will be cut off so you want to extend your backgrounds to the edge. Remember to leave another 1/8" internal bleed (nothing important like text) around the inside of the actual card dimensions (3.5" x 2").

     Uploading your files - If you have just one side it is fine to send as one .jpg file. If you have 2 sides to your job you need to submit your artwork in a compressed .zip format. If you are unfamiliar with the .zip format winzip.com (PC) or stuffit.com (MAC) should be able to help you out. We recommend sending all larger files as .zip because it helps to compress the files even more for transfer across the internet.
