Flat Greeting Card Printing
Greeting Card Printing
PrintFirm offers flat ting card printing services at a low price. We have 10 sizes available for our flat greeting cards, ranging in size from 4” X 6” all the way up to 6” X 11”. Printing can be on the front or both sides. There is an option for a glossy UV coating that offers protection from dirt and moisture, or a non-glossy matte finish.
The following flat greeting card printing tips should help you achieve success with your greeting card campaign.
Direct mail marketing
If the greeting cards will be involved with direct mail marketing, it’s a good idea to use a printing company such as PrintFirm that can address the cards as they are being printed. This will save you time and money. If you don’t have a targeted mailing list, you can get one from a list broker and send that to us in the form of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, or you can email your list requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will obtain a list for you. Be certain to include your geographic and demographic requirements in your email.
High resolution for the win
Use high-resolution images for flat greeting card printing. We recommend a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch). Lower resolutions may appear as good quality on your screen, but the printed result will be fuzzy or pixelated. Use caution when adapting images found online because they are typically low resolution. To check the DPI of an image file, open it in a reputable graphic design program and view the file details.
Gang printing saves you money
PrintFirm will often use gang printing techniques with flat greeting card printing. This saves you money because we can combine different types of orders in the same printing job. That being said, we still recommend that you order as many copies as you can afford as opposed to making several smaller orders. PrintFirm’s offset printing requires initial resources for job setup, but once your design is loaded and ready for flat greeting card printing, the cost per copy decreases as the number of copies increases.
