Preparing Your Artwork

If you decide to hire a designer or design your business card yourself – please make sure to follow the instructions on this page.

TWINSPRINT requires a high-definition (300dpi) file, in CMYK mode, with a .25″ bleed.

Getting the colors right

If you send us an RGB file, there is a chance that a color shift may occur and you may not be satisfied with your job.

These colors are in RGB

These are the same colors but in CMYK

You should always start and finish your designs in CMYK mode.


72 dpi files or images may come out low res or pixilated. This may result in a printed product that you may not be satisfied with. We require that you send us your own artwork in 300 dpi files or images.

Size Matters

Use the image below of a standard 3.5×2 inch business card, as an example when creating your design. All artwork that is submitted should be designed with a .25 inch bleed (everything outside the blue line). All your text and anything you do not want cut should be inside the blue line. Everything in the grey area will be cut off.


Your card may have borders, however, if the border is too close to the cutline, it may be cut off-center slightly. We cut through many sheets at a time, so watch your borders to avoid an unwanted mistake. TWINSPRINT is not responsible for issues regarding this subject.
