About Black & White business cards
By itself, two layers of black and one layer of white card stock makes a minimalistic impact. For more? You can print the white layer with a CMYK design of your choice. Or add a white foil (or color of your choice) to the black side for a stunning impression.
- Hotfoil: Foil is applied to the black layer of paper by pressure and heat.
- Submit: 1 PDF document.
- Page 1 = Recto (black side) with your design in foil. No variable designs are possible. All elements are vector-elements and they have a spotcolor (100% Black), named: "hotfoil".
- Page 2 = Verso (white side) with a design that can be printed in CMYK. Foil is not possible on this side of the card.
- Would you like to have different verso-designs on 1 rectodesign? That's possible. Just add more pages to your document.
How to add foil to the black side of your business card
Add a spot color swatch (100% Black) for all the foil design elements. Give this swatch a logical name. (for example: Foil).
Make sure all your design elements are vector elements. Make sure your text is set to 'Outlines' (Select all text and go to: Type > Create Outlines).
Be aware that the black side of your business cards can not be printed with CMYK and the white side of your business cards can not be pressed with foil.
Before exporting files:
- Remove all objects from the artboard that are not intended to be printed, including any extra swatches, links or extra objects.
- Your artwork should be in CMYK color mode.
- Images should be at least 200 dpi (we prefer 300 dpi).
- Delete the guidelines layer if you used a template.
Extend the background of your design to fill the full “bleed area”. This way you don’t end up with white edges when your business cards are trimmed.
Keep all the important stuff for your design (like the text, logo, graphic elements, etc.) inside this area. Don’t add your background – that still needs to run to the edges of the “bleed area”.
This shows where the design will be cut off in the end. Make sure you add crop marks to your document when you save or export to pdf.
So this will be the actual size of your business card.
