Bleed Area
All file must have bleed. In other words, if you are designing the files, graphics, text or borders shouldn't be placed too near to the cut line. It must be at least 3mm from the edge. For instance, your actual size for your namecards is 90mm x 54mm. The bleed should have 96mm x 60mm on your artwork. All graphics, text or borders should be place inside the safe area.
Safe Area
Graphics, Text or borders should be placed inside the safe area. If the objects are placed too close to the Actual Size Area, it may be easily cut off. It must be at least 5mm from the edge of the actual size.
Outlining the file
All files must be outlined (Adobe Illustrator). This is to prevent from missing text or objects when sending over the file for printing. Different PC might have different font types.

Colors
All files must be submitted in CMYK Mode. If you are submitting RGB mode files, there will be color difference between RGB and CMYK. If your files are submitted using any other color mode, such as RGB or Pantone code, we will convert the files to CMYK mode. The result of the colors will vary.

Bare in mind that the colors you see in your PC doesn mean to be the color of the final printing. Every PCs view colors differently. Different printing will produce different result. Color displayed on your computer monitor is created by RGB. Printed colors are created from CMYK.
Resolution
Images in artwork submitted for printing must be at least 300dpi or higher. Take note that images initially put in MS Word / Excel Document, or photos saved from the Internet might not be able to use for printing as the images were resized to a lower resolution. As a result of using lower resolution images for printing, the quality of printing will be poor.
