Resolution

The minimum resolution we recommend for print is 300 DPI. Please note that if your image or text is a lower dpi, converting it in a design program to 300 dpi won’t actually increase the resolution, you will want to make sure that the actual image or graphic was originally created at 300 dpi. Some designs may require a higher DPI.

Bleed

The very edges of the document are called the bleed area. To prevent an unwanted border from showing at the edge of your document and ruining your business cards, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements past the trim line, all the way to the edge. Make sure no graphics or texts that are not to be cut off are out of this area and within the (blue) safe zone.

Trim:

Trim lines are the finished size of the product. The document is cut close to the trim line, but because of the mechanical tolerances involved in printing, the actual cut can happen anywhere between the bleeds and the safe margin. This is why it is important to keep your text and important images within the safe margin.

Safe Area / Safe Margins

You will want to make sure all text and graphics that are not intended to be cut off are within the safe zone. The safe zone is an area that is a safe distance away from the trim line where the cut will take place. Text and graphics within the safe zone are guaranteed to not be cut off.

Borders:

Borders within your design are not recommended as cuts can shift anywhere from 1-2mm due to processing.

CMYK VS. RGB

MorningPrint does not guarantee color will match the preview on customer’s monitor, as we cannot compensate for the color variance on each customer’s monitor set-up.
The color you see in your monitor is in RGB Color scheme which consists of three colors; Red, Green and Blue. These are the primary colors of light, which computer monitors use to display images on your screen.

The color to be printed on your business card is in CMYK color scheme, which consists of four colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. In full-color process printing, CMYK is the standard method of offset printing.

Therefore, the printed color will never perfectly match the on-screen color. Colors vary from monitor to monitor, and different printers produce different color results.

The best you can do is use a CMYK chart as a reference but if using offset gang printing you have to leave room for slight shifts. This is not just MorningPrint but an industry standard. The advantage of gang printing is that printing in the 4 color process in large quantities, it reduces the cost but there is less control of color than if you are dealing with a standardized system like PMS.

Black VS. Rich Black

Rich black in CMYK offset printing is a ink mixture of solid black over one or more of the other CMYK colors, resulting in a darker tone than black ink alone can generate in the printing process. Rich black is recommended for large, solid black areas and text over 36 points.

For regular text, do not use rich black- use 100% black (C0,M0,Y0,K100).

Recommended Values:

Rich Black for Paper stocks - C30%M30%Y20%K100%
Rich Black for White Plastic, opaque plastic, clear plastic - C20%M20%Y20%K100%
Rich Black for Silver plastic, gold plastic, silver pearl, gold pearl - K 100%
Rich Black for PVC -C30% M30% Y20% K100%

Converting Fonts to Outlines

By converting fonts to outlines in programs like Illustrator and Photoshop, you will avoid font issues such as missing fonts or missing text. When converting text to outlines, the font becomes a "shape" and will look no different than its original font. If your fonts are not converted to outlines or rasterized, your design may not be viewed the way it was meant to be seen. Illustrator - Select All text - Type - Create Outlines / Photoshop - Select text layer - rasterize
*note this does not mean to literally create outlines

    There is no WHITE in Clear P!! I didn't know that!! Well... that's my fault I guess, but i like the OPAQUE W!! This is actually better. they are like frosted cards. You can read better and see the colors better than in Clear P. I'm wondering I can print white on Clear not entire card but just some part on the card. I hope they do..

    Got my business cards today. Black with embossed print and logo and bronze foil finish. I could not be happier! They look, have a nice weight and your customer service helped me work out the details, perfectly. Great product and a very happy customer.

    I am extremely disappointed in this company. I received my business cards and realized half of them were misprinted and completely unusable. I emailed them multiple times until I realized they were pretending to not get them anymore. I have warned every person at my college to avoid this company. Horrible horrible customer service!!!!!! I have never had a company blatantly ignore my issue and refuse to correct it.

    I ordered 200 of the 5x7 cards on 14pt matte with a spot gloss. They are GORGEOUS!!!! Exactly what I had envisioned only on better quality paper! Thank you! This is my second product I have ordered from you and both have exceeded my expectations. Will definitely be ordering again and continue referring you to my friends and colleagues.
