When preparing your artwork for Business Cards printed in full colour one side only or both sides onto Silk Board, it is important to add 3mm bleed all round the edge of the finished size, which means that the overall artwork size should be 61mm x 91mm including bleed. It is easy to set up bleed in desktop publishing programs such as Adobe InDesign, CorelDraw or Microsoft Publisher, but is much more difficult in Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Word. Another important artwork consideration is the need to keep any important information away from the edge of the Business Cards printed in full colour one side only or both sides onto Silk Board. This area without any important text is known as a Quiet Area. The Quiet Area should be at least 3mm wide and if possible 5mm wide.

All artwork is always checked very carefully by our studio before your Business Cards printed in full colour one side only or both sides are printed onto 400gsm silk or gloss Board.
