Our uncoated business cards are the perfect option to promote your business or product, or even why not use as a small thank you card. If you may need to write on the cards, these are the best solution due to thier uncoated surface.

We will print your fantastic design in vibrant full colour onto our premium 350gsm uncoated board, with a smooth bright white surface for that luxury look and feel. Choose from one or two sides, the price is the same.

Due to the nature of our printing process, the printed ink will have a slight satin finish, even on these uncoated card stocks. As our products are custom made to order, we need to allow a small tolerance of 1-2mm of movement during printing and cutting, so please keep this in mind when creating your design. We are happy to check your artwork over before ordering to give you that extra piece of mind, so drop us an email to info@captivatingprint.co.uk and we will have a look.

Download PDF Template

We want to ensure your printed product is as captivating as it can be. This starts with a good quality, high resolution design file from you. There are product templates available for download on each product page which can be used to help set up your design file.

The best format to send your design to us is a PDF. However, you can also supply in the following formats:

FILE FORMATS

PDF

PDFs are the best way to provide your artwork to us. You can export PDFs from all design software (try File>Save or File>Export) or you can use software called a PDF Printer (File>print>select-PDF Printer), or there are various online PDF converters.

When creating the PDF, there will be a PDF options box. In this window you may have to specify the CMYK colour and image resolution of High or 300dpi.

EPS

When supplying as EPS make sure that all fonts are embedded, and that you include document thumbnails. Transparency resolution should be set to High. All files should also be in CMYK colour mode and have all relevant bleeds included.

JPEG / TIFF

If you are sending us a JPEG or TIFF, it is vital that each time you save the image, you select MAXIMUM quality.

Please ensure that these file types are created at high resolution (300 dpi) and are in CMYK colour mode and have all relevant bleeds included.

ILLUSTRATOR FILES (.AI)

If supplying as Ai files, please ensure that all images are embedded (you will be prompted when importing images) and all text is converted to outlines. Please bear in mind though that there is no advantage to supplying in this format and PDF is always preferable.

Please ensure that all images you use are at high resolution (300 dpi) and that the document is in CMYK colour mode and has all relevant bleeds included.

MICROSOFT OFFICE or APPLE PAGES

We do not accept artwork in any Microsoft format or Apple Pages, this includes:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Publisher
  • Works
  • Pages

If you are using one of these software’s, you can can convert these files into a PDF, by using the FREE conversion tool at: https://www.zamzar.com/

It is important when supplying a PDF from a Microsoft or Apple documents, that care is taken to ensure the size of your document is as per the specific product size including bleeds.

ARTWORK BLEED

It is essential that there is a minimum of 3mm bleed on all sides around your artwork. When you have background images or colour in your design, bleed is to ensure that no white appears around your product when cut to size. We print on larger sheets then cut down to the finish size of the product, so the ‘bleed’ is a must. For example: A6 size is 148mm x 105mm, with bleed the file size would be 154mm x 111mm. Please note that there is a 1-2mm tolerance of movement for cutting on all jobs.

IMPOSITION

Please ensure that you sent all artworks as single pages and not as page spreads.
