Die Cut Business Cards - Overview

Die-cut business cards are printed in full color on both sides of a silk matte laminated paper stock, available in 18 pt and 32 pt thicknesses.

We can die-cut any custom shape you can imagine and even offer laser die-cutting for the more complex designs.

If you need help with a design or setting up your file correctly, our designers are happy to help create your die-files at no cost.

About the Paper Stock

What is silk matte laminated paper?

A silk matte laminated paper is a type of paper coated with a matte film that makes it durable yet smooth to the touch. The material is neither 100% shiny nor 100% matte. Even with a silky suede-like texture, you should be able to write on its surface with a permanent marker or a standard ballpoint pen.

This durable and subtly textured finish is achieved through a process called silk lamination. While it’s pretty similar to traditional lamination, it produces classier and more durable paper products.

Silk lamination creates a unique coating that protects the paper from creases, scratches, rips, stains, sun damage, and smudges. It even provides a rather high level of water resistance. That means you can wipe down a card with a damp cloth without ruining its print or the paper itself. Even when a potential client uses your card as a coaster, your contact details should remain undamaged.

Artwork Guidelines

FontSize_image-01
  • Bleeds: all files must have a 1/8″ bleed on each side
  • Live Area: keep all critical text and artwork inside the trim
  • Colors: supply your files in CMYK color mode (not Pantone)
  • Resolution: 300 dpi
  • Fonts: fonts must be converted to curves/outlines
  • Transparencies: flatten all transparencies
  • File Types: PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPEG

Special Finish Guidelines

PP_Applying_A_Mask_Image_01_1_

If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.
