Print Shops and Ordering Cards Online

Printing in the print shop makes sense if you need to print a large amount of business cards (100 or more) or achieve the best possible quality.

Print shops usually accept graphic files in TIFF or PDF format.

To export your card, select File > Export from the menu and choose TIFF or PDF format. To set up bleeds, cut marks and image resolution, click the Options button. Each print shop may have specific requirements as to the bleed size. Check this in advance.

To open on-line directions on how to prepare your design for a commercial printer, select File > Order Cards Online.

Note: Print shops require cards that are easy to cut. So, for best results don't position text too close to the edges of the cards. If you're using images, check that they either don't reach the edge of the card or go over it.
