Greetings Card Printing
We offer both digitally printed and fine art giclee printed greetings cards and postcards. For fine art cards there is no minimum order, for digital cards there is a minimum order of 400 cards, but this can be for upto 20 designs. Please see below for prices, for quantities over 1000 cards please contact us for a quote as discounts are available, depending on the number of cards ordered. Fine art cards are usually delivered within five working days. Digitally printed cards are usually dispatched within two weeks, if you need a faster turnaround time then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note fine art cards are only available to customers ordering printing or framing products at the same time. We offer these as a convenient option to customers who would otherwise struggle to meet min orders for a lot of traditional printing companies offering greetings cards. However due to the high cost of materials required and the time each card takes it is not commercially viable to offer these as a standalone product using our fine art printers. If you require just cards and no other printing please check out our digitally printed options.
Our digitally printed greetings cards are printed onto heavy 350 gsm card. Greetings cards can be supplied as the card only or we can also supply them with white gummed envelopes and cellophane bags ready for retail. The cards are supplied ready folded. Prints must be press ready in CMYK colour space and supplied as PDF files. Please leave a 3mm border all around for printing. You can also design the card to have details on the back as well as the front. If you are unsure on how to deign the cards we can usually talk you through it or are happy to lay them out for you without extra cost, providing the back of the card does not change with each image design. We offer cards at A5, 5 x 7 inchs ot A6, but other sizes are also available upon request, including square format cards.
With the Fine Art option your greetings cards are printed using Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks. Your image will be printed on the front with a small 15mm white border all the way around the image. To ensure the border is equal all around your image it should be in the 3 by 2 format. Greetings cards for the fine art option are supplied with white gummed envelopes and cellophane bags ready for retail. Our standard paper weight is 250gsm. The cards are supplied ready folded. The print finish is very high for detail and colour, although the cards do scratch easier than the digital cards and are not as thick. With the fine art cards there is no minimum order. We can print just one card if required.
We are now offering the chance to have your images printed on postcards. We can supply the images blank on the reverse, you can supply your own design for the back or we can use our standard postcard templates with space for stamp and the address all marked out. The price quoted is for colour one side and black and a black and white postcard template or similar on the back.
