Turnaround time can sometimes become confusing. Here are some helpful tips that would help you understand Turnaround Time better:
  • Turnaround Time is the time that takes us to print your item and make it ready for pickup or shipping.
  • Shipping time is NOT included in Turnaround Time.
  • You have the option to select from multiple Turnaround Time options when placing your order. This option is sometimes titled “Ready to Ship In” on our website.

File Specifications

File Formats The preferred file format for printing is PDF. We also accept JPG, JPEG, PSD, PNG, TIF, TIFF, EPS, AI, Publisher, DOCX, DOC, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, TXT and CSV files Artwork Requirements We require artworks to be in CMYK color space and have a minimum resolution of 300dpi. A 0.125″ bleed from each side of artwork is required for most products. Element Sizes We recommend to keep small texts at 8pt and thin lines at 0.5pt to avoid problems during printing. Bleed Area A bleed area is when an image extends beyond the cut line of the printed product. If your image is not white on all four sides, you MUST include an extra 1/8″ (0.125″) on each side of the card to be trimmed after the printing is complete. For example, if you are ordering a 3.5″ x 2″ business cards, you would set your artwork size to 3.75″ x 2.25″. Cut Line The cut line is where your product will be trimmed to, once the bleed area is removed. But please remember, due to cutting tolerances of printing, the cut may shift up to 1/16 of an inch in any direction. Safe Area ​A safe area is a margin within the cut line which will prevent text or type from being cut off. It is imperative that no text or essential parts of your artwork come within 1/8″ of the trim line. Due to mechanical tolerance during the cutting process, any content within 1/8″ of the trim line may be cut off.
