- 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.
- Matte Card (100# Cover) - Our favorite choice is a smooth media conducive for writing on and perfect for note cards and art cards.

Art Specifications for Custom 5x7 Folded Cards
If the following specs seem like Klingon language, 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 file 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.
This 5x7 Folded Card Template is Helpful.
This downloadable template offers a better way to visualize the bleed area for each printed side. Your file should be 7.25 x 10.25." You will need a program like Adobe Photoshop to use this template,
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 quantities. All 5x7 cards are considered "full bleed" or "borderless." We only provide a margin if that area is +in the original artwork.
Our 5x7 folded cards are ideal for printing greeting cards, photo cards, holiday cards, custom art cards, and DIY cards.
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 prefer a digital sample, please indicate this in the "digital proof" options. A digital proof may delay an order by one business day but may be helpful for proofreading.
A 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 only fold orders of 100 cards or less.
Pick a Colorful Envelope
Ten smooth A7 envelope choices are available with our 5x7 folded cards: Ivory White, Natural, Dark Red, Gamma Green, Blast-Off Blue, Eclipse Black, Lift-off Lemon, Pulsar Pink, Gravity Grape, and Grocer Kraft. Envelopes may appear slightly darker/lighter in person than you see on the screen. Sometimes we must make variant substitutions.
Dark Red, Gamma Green, Blast-Off Blue, Eclipse Black, Lift-off Lemon, Pulsar Pink, and Gravity Grape are only available for 5x7 card sizes (A7).

Will My Artwork Fit 5" x 7" Folded Cards?
Our Designers Help Convert Your Art Into Amazing Cards.
We can ordinarily make nearly any picture work as folded cards. Our staff is here to help. Some art may better fit the 5" x 7" space than the 4.25" x 5.5" work canvas. The following dimensions play friendly with the 5" x 7" space.
- 8.5" x 11"
- 9" x 12"
- 11" x 14"
- 12" x 18"
If your image fits another dimension better, our designers will contact you. We extend this advice to avoid uneven borders, undesired clipping, and yucky stretching.
