  • The competition is tough, stand out with one of the heaviest Business Cards Stocks out there!  Our 18PT full color business cards will leave that impressive impact that you need for your company.

  • Our business cards are printed on 18PT card stock which is much thicker than what your traditional printer will use.

    Example: Traditional printers will use 70LB or 100LB card stock which is 0.007" and 0.01" in thickness. Cutting Edge Business Card's standard stock is 14PT (0.014" - 100% thicker than 70LB) and 16PT (0.016" - 60% thicker than 100LB).

    Does it Matter? Yes. Think of your card as you would a handshake. Have a strong handshake and be remembered.

  • Color: All colors should be converted to CYMK process. If you send us an RGB file, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job.

    File Types: We recommend saving as a .PDF. You may also send the file in the following types: jpg, jpeg, tif, tiff, eps, and png. We prefer that you send .PDF with embedded or outlined fonts. .PDF's are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around.

    File Size: Supplied file size should not contain crop marks and if the finished card contains bleeds it should be supplied with 3.75" width by 2.25" in height.

    File Resolution: We only accept 300 dpi files and no less.

    Rotation: Print Ready files with proper rotation should be HEAD to HEAD. Files submitted are printed HEAD to HEAD as-is based off your files.

    Ink Cracks on Edges: Cracking of the edges of a business card sometimes occurs when the card contains high values of ink, as in dark colors. This usually happens on a small amount of cards in the run. To prevent this, use lighter colors or if you must use dark colors, use as little ink as possible.

  • Typesetting: If you have an existing card, but don't have the ability to update the text in-house our talented desktop publishing team will be able to update most artwork without issue.

    Design: Need a custom design? Great! Our graphic design professionals will be able to assist with creating an unique look to represent you and your business.

  • Production Time: Print Production is 3 - 6 Business Days*
