How Your Bespoke business Cards Are Made
Incredibly high quality and beautifully coloured prints are created using a professional level printing process. Your design will be reproduced with vibrant colours and a consistent tone, which will be enhanced by the quality of the fine art paper. A 300 gsm heavyweight paper is used to create durable and high quality personalised business cards. Your cards are finished with a soft satin texture to give the cards a contemporary feel.
Your business cards will be sent to you in a tear-out textured card case to keep them safe. You can easily wipe your cards clean with a dry tissue or cloth.
Create a stylish and contemporary card by emphasising your artwork or design. Opt for a minimalist backing featuring your contact information, but make a statement on the front with a bright and bold piece of art. The contrast will create a beautifully bold business card, and you can choose a different design for all 20 of your cards to share different elements of your artwork.

Frequently asked questions:
Can I Use Different Designs?
One of the best features of your new business cards is that you can choose to have different designs on every card, or keep them all the same. If you want just a handful of different designs, click the 'All Different' option and you can repeat some of your designs. You can have different images or text on both the front and back of every card.
Is the Case Re-usable?
The textured paper case that your cards come in is a booklet, and each card must be gently pulled out. Once the card is out, you cannot add it back into the booklet so be sure when you want to take one out.
Are the cards printed in colour?
The cards are printed in full colour, with your exact design and images reproduced using the highest quality printing processes and heavyweight paper.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
