Description

1 & 2-color printing uses only those specific ink colors that you choose (black and PMS ink colors.) With 4-color offset printing (the most cost efficient printing method) and digital printing a combination of 4 ink colors are used on the press to give you most ink colors and can be used to simulate PMS ink colors.

Business Cards provide contact information in a convenient, standardized size. While much of the information is the same from one Business Card to another, font, style, substrate, and imagery set you apart and make your impression unique.

To place a single order for the same Business Card design with different names or contact information, use the Versions section in the pricing calculator. For example, if you would like to order the same design for 4 different people, type "4" under Versions. When you choose "place order," you will be able to upload 4 files. Up to 4 versions can be uploaded in a single PDF, which means only 1 proof would be necessary.

1&2 Color printing does not allow for bleeds. For more information, see the "File Setup" tab.

  • What is Pantone?

2/2

Two colors on both sides of the sheet, including Pantone Ink colors. This option can reproduce exact Pantone colors. A typical example of this is brochures with specific corporate or team colors.

Please note:
In order to reproduce Pantone colors, we will use ink of that specific color number. Pantone colors in your file must be specified as the Pantone color number you desire. Do not convert the Pantone color to CMYK (also known as full color or 4-color) for 1 & 2-color printing. While many Pantone colors can be reproduced using blends of CMYK inks, this approach is only available when you order 4-Color Offset or Digital printintg. This is because our 1 & 2 color presses have a maximum of two ink stations.

While many colors can be built as a blend of other colors (for example, red and yellow combined create orange), our 1 & 2 Color printing requires that your files specify that you want orange (Pantone #165) and not a mix of red and yellow.

We get rave reviews for our 1 & 2 Color printing. Following the guidelines above will make it easy for you to get what you want. If you don't know the Pantone color number for the ink color you want, you can find a Pantone sample book at most art and design stores.
