Folded Greeting Cards Printed Your Way
Print Placement for Folded Cards
The termination for folded greeting card printing can be confusing. Normally, we talk about 2 sided for printing. For folded greeting cards, those two sides are called "inside" and "outside". The front and back panels of the folded cards are both on the outside, as in the adjacent image.
Given that, you can select to have a colour "outside" (4/0 Full-colour front only) with a blank inside, a colour outside with black and white print inside, or full colour inside and outside.
With all the colour choices, the outside is in full colour. That means you can use full colour for both the front and the back of the card, if you want to include something on the back.
Folded greeting cards can be printed in portrait or landscape orientation.

Creasing creates a weak point, making the card stock easier to fold. It is crucial for high quality greeting card printing. In addition to making folding easier, the crease prevents the toner that is baked onto the surface of the paper through digital printing from cracking. Card stock that is printed and then crease will allow a perfectly straight fold, without damaging the printed surface.
