Paper and Envelopes For 5x7 Folded Cards
Envelopes With Color
Add white envelopes to each folded card for only one dollar more. Or pick one of ten stellar envelope colors available for select 5" x 7" finishes. You can choose Natural and Kraft envelopes for smaller sizes such as 4.25" x 5.5" and 3.5" x 5".
The thinner card options, 70/80# covers, are excellent choices for distributing 5x7 Folded Cards to large mailing lists, sending personal thank you cards, and writing to a friend.
We recommend the 100/110# card options if you are selling on Etsy, selling retail card sets, or need to maintain a higher-end service or brand. The most popular choice of 5x7 Folded Cards belongs to the "Matte Card (100# Cover)" selection.

Four Convenient Card Choices
We offer four beautiful, sustainably sourced card stocks for custom 5x7 folded cards and invitations. Two are less expensive for handing out, and two are more durable for high-end circumstances.
- Gloss Card (80# Cover) - This media is the most economical card choice for greeting cards.
- Matte Card (70# Cover) - The matte solution is exceptional for elegant cards requiring less shine.
- Gloss Card (110# Cover) - A more premium and durable card, this gloss stock enhances color vibrancy.

Art Specifications for Custom 5x7 Folded Cards
If the following specs seem like Klingon language to you, don't let that deter you from ordering custom 5x7 folded cards. Our experienced professionals analyze all artwork before printing begins. If we cannot resolve the difficulties we discover, one of our friendly staff members will reach out to you.
- Try to prepare your art files with 10.25" x 7.25" (spread) or 5.127" x 7.25" dimensions. If needed, we can make adjustments, so concentrate on keeping valuable components at least 0.25 inches away from the four edges.
- Review the quality settings to recognize if you are operating in a 300dpi space. Many popular graphics apps default to a web-quality 72dpi (Adobe Photoshop) or a modest-quality 132dpi (Procreate). Increasing the quality setting to 300dpi or higher before you start working is an enormous step in the right direction for quality.
- We prefer PDF or JPG files types. Don't worry; our artists accept other files such as PNG, EPS, and TIF. We do not open DOC, PUB, or PPT files. Thankfully, most Microsoft products allow you to export your file as a PDF.
- Try visualizing your digital art in CMYK color mode. We convert all artwork for cards to CMYK. Many designers inadvertently work in RGB, but this color mode is primarily for digital media. The CMYK conversion can lead to softened colors or various color shifts. If this is your first time printing cards with us, we recommend ordering a PDF proof.
- You do not need to provide trim or crop marks with your artwork. Designers will sometimes leave this information present, and we will ask you to remove them before moving forward.

Further Details About Printing 5x7 Folded Cards
5x7 folded cards are 10x7 (or 7x10) cards folded in half. Single-sided cards include the front and back of the card. A double-sided card adds the inside area. Orders 100 cards and under are shipped pre-folded. We carefully score each piece, but only hand-fold orders under 100 quantity. All 5x7 cards are considered "full bleed" or "borderless." We only provide a margin if that area is present in the original artwork.
Our 5x7 folded cards are ideal for printing greeting cards, photo cards, holiday cards, custom art cards, DIY cards, and so much more.
Single or Double?
- Single-Sided - Art can be on the front and very back of the card.
- Double-Sided - This includes printing on the inside of the card as well.
Digital Proofs Might Be Useful
If you would like to see a digital sample, please indicate this in the "digital proof" options. A digital proof may delay an order by one business day but may prove useful for proofreading purposes.
Digital proof is usually not required for most artwork. Don't worry; we briefly review and inspect all art files for quality purposes. If we see obvious problems, we will contact you before production to ensure fabulous results!
Folding and Scoring
We score all folded cards and invitations, but we only fold orders of 100 cards or less.
