Our 450gsm stock is thicker than standard boards, adding to the luxury feel and finish of the cards. There are is also an opptional extra!

Printing

A combination of digital and litho printing is used depending on the quantity being ordered. All printing is done using CMYK, we're unable to offer pantone printing.


Printed Proofs

Printed colour proofs are available for £8+VAT. Please note, that this is not an actual sample of the finished product, it is a printed proof on an A4 sheet for colour approval. The reason we offer this is that, people often view proofs on mobile or tablet devices which show bright vibrant RGB colours. Printing is done using CMYK so colours often appear differently. A printed colour proof is a great way to ensure you're happy with the colour prior to running your order. Please note that, without a printed proof, we are unable to offer reprints due to colour variation as there is nothing to match to during production.

Foil Colour Choices

Simply let us know which foil colours you'd like from the selection below when you upload your artwork. Remember to clearly indicate foil colours on your artwork. We'll send you a proof to confirm everything is correct prior to printing.

Artwork Templates

All artwork files for business cards must be supplied at a minimum resolution of 300dpi for full colour printing and 1200dpi for foil blocking. Artwork for foil blocking can supplied on a different layer or as a separate foil. Please clearly indicate the layer or file, so we can send you a digital proof prior to production.

Artwork Guidelines & Blank Templates

We recommend creating your artwork for foil blocking as vector files using Adobe Illustrator. Layered Adobe Photoshop (PSD) files with all fonts rasterised can also be supplied at 1200dpi for foil blocking (our templates are set at 1200dpi for you). Artwork for full colour printing can be 300dpi. If you're supplying JPEG or TIFF files for foil blocking, we require your artwork in solid black on a white background in order to manufacture the foil blocking dies/blocks. Once we have received your files, we will send you a digital proof and confirm all job specs. Once you approve your proof, production will begin.

If you need artwork advice, please email our art department directly at artwork(at)afterhourscreativestudio.com.
