DIY Supplies – Print Shop

• Welcome to the PRINT SHOP •

When creating a layered invite, or a card that will fit in a pocket fold or envelope, please contact us and we can help you determine the correct size for each piece/layer. We suggest a minimum size difference of ¼” between each layer. Sizes with corresponding envelopes are indicated on the order forms. Click here to view print file requirements→

• YOUR DESIGN FILES MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS •


→ Flatten all layers and embed/outline all fonts
→ Send as a PDF or JPEG file
→ Color mode: CMYK, not RGB
→ Resolution should be a minimum of 300 pixels or dots per inch
→ Add 0.125 inch bleed to accommodate trimming on borderless designs. For example, a 5×7″ card with a borderless design should have a total file size of 5.125 x 7.125″ with the outer 0.0625″ on each edge being trimmed off. Keep all important text or info at least 1/8″ to 1/4″ away from the edge of the card to allow for trim tolerances. Files with incorrect bleeds may result in having a white border around the edge.
→ For folded cards, submit a single file for each side of the card as though it were flat. Do not submit separate files for each side of the fold. For example, a tri-fold brochure will only have 2 files: one for the entire outside/front, and one for the entire inside/back.
