Advantages of Flat Greeting Cards
Flat greeting cards and ideal way to show off your artwork or share a photograph and save money at the same time. Because there is no fold or creasing, flat greeting cards use less paper, are lighter weight to send in the mail, and can be printed on heavier 16 point card stocks.
Customers seem to like the 5″ x 7″ flat greeting card, printed in colour on both sides, on 14 or 16 pt matte card stock. The cards look great, and the matte stock is easy to write on if they want to add a personal note.
The 4.25″ x 5.5″ size is a popular choice for save the date notices and invitations. Businesses also use this size, without envelopes, to add a thank you message or promotion with each order.
If you want cheap invitations, flat greeting cards are a more affordable option than folded greeting cards.
Flat greeting card artwork should be made in the correct size and proportions for your print project. Pdf files are preferred, though high resolution jpg, tif, or even png can work. A .125″ bleed is required on each side of the card.
If you send a photo for one side of the card, please understand that some of the image may have to be cropped t0 fit. It is recommended that you request a proof to see the layout before printing.
Full bleed printing is NOT available for envelopes. Content should allow at least a .125″ margin around the edges.
If you want to have each flat greeting card envelope printed with a recipient’s address as well as your return address, upload a spreadsheet (.csv preferred) with the addresses for the print merge. Contact us if you need help with setting that up.
