CMYK vs RGB
- A common issue we see is that the file that was submitted is in RGB format.
- RGB is a format designed specifically for digital formats, whereas CMYK is designed for print.
- We do print in CMYK, so there is a color shift if we have to convert your file from RGB to CMYK.
- If the file that was submitted is heavily pixelated, we are not able to use it for print.
- If you are submitting a raster file such as .jpg or .png, please make sure that the resolution is at least 300dpi.
- For vector files, there's no need to worry about the resolution! Vector files will always have the best resolution.
My File Isn’t Uploading
- If you are unable to upload your file, it may be too large to upload.
- The best way to submit your file in this case would be to email the files to us at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your order number.
- Another way to submit your file would be to send a dropbox or wetransfer link in your order notes when placing the order.
Bleed and Text Too Close to Edge
- If your card has any text on it, we recommend keeping it at least 3/16" away from the border. Any closer to the edge and the text may be cut off.
