Product Description

For the best business card printing, use professional design software such as Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator. Make sure that your final artwork file adheres to all the guidelines on our checklist. If you are uncomfortable using the respective design software, give our professional design services a try. Our graphic designer here at Printulu is always happy to assist with any design issues you may have for your business card printing.

MINIMUM ARTWORK REQUIREMENTS FOR BUSINESS CARDS: • Font Size: 5pt • 300dpi image quality • CMYK Colour Mode • Safe Text Size: Size of product ordered -6mm • Remember to convert text to paths OR Convert artwork to Jpeg • Bleed: Product size +6mm.

To lay out business cards for printing, you need to use the size of the business card ordered and add your bleed to the artwork. You should only supply one artwork. For example, if you ordered a 90mm x 50mm business card, your print-ready artwork will be 96mm x 56mm with trim marks.

The predecessors of business cards were already used around the 17th century by the upper class to announce important events or as an invitation. Back then, the cards only stated the name, while the card's back was kept blank for notes. By the 19th century, the cards had spread to the middle classes and also contained a person's background, profession, and status. They were also customized with portraits, crests, and sometimes even photographs.

Yes, we do! We call them PVC cards. These special business cards can be found here.

Absolutely! Our design services come at an additional cost, depending on whether you want both sides designed or one side designed. Simply click on the “Design Services” option when placing your order and select the type of design service you would like.

We define a design as an artwork. We have a strict policy of one artwork per order. This artwork can be both sides of the business card if you are ordering with full colour on both sides. In the case of multiple artwork, there are 2 scenarios: Scenario 1: Black changes only - this is where details such as names, contact details and email addresses change but the colour scheme, logo and other imagery remain the same. In these cases you can send a query to support@printulu.co.za to get a special quote. Scenario 2: Imagery changes. These would be separate orders and you would have to make a unique order for each unique artwork.

Your submitted file must be given a bleed (border) of 3-5mm relative. Essentially this means you get the size of the print with an added 3-5mm on all sides, giving us room to cut your custom print without worrying about annoying white borders. For example: If you order an A5 flyer, the size is 148 x 210mm, so therefore the A5 file you send us would be 154mm x 216mm. (148mm +3mm + 3mm {3mm per side}: 154mm) - Paper/Traditional Printing If you order an A5 Chromdek Board, the size is 148 x 210mm, so therefore the A5 file you send us would be 158mm x 220mm. (148mm +5mm + 5mm {5mm per side}: 158mm) - Large Format Printing.
