Description

Standard Sizes

Our standard sizes, listed below, are the most popular in the industry:

  • 8.5" x 5.5" Scored
  • 8.5" x 11" Scored
  • 10" x 7" Scored
  • Each size (above) indicates the size of the flat sheet, so the final size of your Greeting Card changes to half this size once folded.
    • 14 Pt Gloss Cover
    • 12 Pt Gloss Cover
    • 100# White Linen Cover
    • 100# Uncoated Cover
    • 4/4 (Full Color Both Sides)
    • 4/1 (Full Color Front / B&W Back)
    • 4/0 (Full Color Front Side Only)

    4/4

    Note: Full color (also known as 4-color or CMYK) consists of professionally printing combinations of 4 ink colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK) to produce most colors. The correct ink mix is automatically calculated with our Design Online software as you create the piece. When you design and upload your own graphic/photo files be sure they are created as CMYK color format rather than RGB color format.

    4/4 is printed in sull color on both sides of the sheet. This option can reproduce the range of colors you see in a typical photograph out of the standard 4 printing colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Typical examples of this are magazine covers and high-end catalogs.

    • No Coating

    Digital Greeting Cards are printed with a professional finish without a coating.
