  • Greeting cards are ubiquitous in our society. They can be purchased from many places, including department stores, gift shops and supermarkets. PrintFirm offers greeting card printing services at a reasonable price. We offer flat greeting cards that can be printed on the front or both sides, and folded greeting cards that allow for printing on the front and back or all four sides.

    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”. Our folded greeting cards have 5 sizes available, ranging from 4” by 6” up to 6” X 9”. Greeting card printing is on our durable 14-point card stock. There is an option for a glossy water resistant UV coating or a non-UV coating with a matte appearance that is easier to write on with a pen or pencil. PrintFirm’s flat greeting cards have an option for rounded corners with radiuses of 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch and the folded cards can be printed and inserted in a blank envelope.

    You can design your own greeting card and upload the file to us. We support all the major file types such as PDF, AI, JPEG and TIFF. We also have pre-designed greeting card templates that include a basic background style, saving you time in the design process. If nobody in your organization has enough graphic design skill, you can ask our team of talented in-house graphic artists to create a design.

    PrintFirm recommends against using low resolution images for greeting card printing. All images added to your design should have a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch). While low resolution graphics may look fine on your computer screen, the printed result will be a blurry mess. To check the DPI of an image, open it in your favorite graphics program and make a note of the file details.

    Whitespace is very important for greeting card design. Basically, whitespace is the area of the greeting card where no design exists. If there is not enough whitespace, the design looks cluttered and it could result in eye fatigue for some people. Additionally, more whitespace should be designed for greeting cards that allow space for signatures and other written text, as in the case of a “get well” card or birthday card. If you find that there is not enough space to comfortably fit your design, you may want to choose a larger greeting card.

    Proofread your greeting card carefully. One small text mistake can ruin an otherwise good card. Before the greeting card printing phase, show the design to multiple people for proofreading. At least one of those people should be a skilled editor because he/she could catch mistakes that others miss. If you don’t know a skilled editor, consider hiring a professional.

    Please consider greeting card printing with PrintFirm. We achieve quality, consistent full color results. Our customer service department is top-notch and ready to answer any questions you may have.

     

  • PrintFirm offers greeting card printing services at a low price. We have 10 sizes available for our 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 greeting card design tips should help you achieve success with your greeting card campaign.

    1. Choose the design options You can upload your own greeting card design to PrintFirm. We recommend that you download free design templates. This ensures that your design is as compatible as possible with our printing equipment. You can select by product, then size, and finally the graphics file type (such as PDF). Then you can initiate the download. If nobody in your organization is skilled at graphic design, you can hit the “custom design” button when you place an order. PrintFirm’s team of talented graphic artists will create a unique design.
       
    2. Avoid clutter It’s not a good idea to clutter the greeting card design. There should be enough whitespace (area without design) to create separation between images and text so that a design balance is achieved. If you must include more text than will comfortably fit on a medium-sized postcard, you may want to consider selecting a larger postcard size.
       
    3. Focus on fonts Large main cover fonts attract attention, especially if you are using the greeting cards for direct mail marketing. Your mail piece should stand out from other mail items and get noticed. Avoid overly fancy fonts because they can be difficult for the average reader to read quickly
  • The folded greeting card is a common sight in various retail outlets. People enjoy opening them to see how the interior compares to what they have viewed on the cover, and many cards have enough whitespace (area without design) to include plenty of room for signatures and hand-written personal messages. Office managers will often purchase them for employees that have major events in their life and ask each employee who works with the recipient to add a hand-written brief statement that is meant to personalize the main folded greeting card message.

    PrintFirm’s folded greeting cards have 5 sizes available, ranging from 4” by 6” up to 6” X 9”. Greeting card printing is on our durable 14-point card stock. There is an option for a glossy water resistant UV coating or a non-UV coating with a matte appearance that is easier to write on with a pen or pencil. We can insert each folded greeting card into a blank envelope if you choose that option from PrintFirm.com’s drop-down menu.

    Direct mail marketing can be used with folded greeting cards. Typically, the direct mail business use refers to a folded postcard, but the two products are identical at PrintFirm. Ideas for direct mail marketing that have more in common with traditional greeting cards include holiday mailings that give significant discounts on your products or services. We can address your folded greeting cards as they are being printed and give you a low bulk mail rate. Need a mailing list? No problem. Send your list requirements to mailinglist@printfirm.com and include your desired geographic and demographic information.
