Custom Greeting Cards (Bulk)
Custom Greeting Cards (Bulk)
Custom greeting cards are shiny and UV coated on the front and backside, yet uncoated on the interior specifically for writing purposes. Our production crew individually scores them for folding perfection. Partnering each card with an opaque 70# premium white uncoated envelope is optional. We've seen greeting cards utilized for almost every occasion imaginable, including holiday cards, thanksgiving cards, art cards, thank you cards, birthday cards, and much more.
The actual print area for greeting cards is 10" x 7" or 10.25" x 7.25" if accounting for the bleed area.

Five Convenient Card Choices
For custom greeting cards, we offer an exclusive stock.
- CS1 Card (18pt, Glossy Exterior, Uncoated Interior)
The 18pt Card stock is best for instances where you desire the exterior to be shiny and the interior to be uncoated for writing purposes. However, we also offer four beautiful, sustainably sourced card stocks for folded cards and invitations. Two are less expensive for handing out, and two are more durable for high-end circumstances and retail.
- Gloss Card (80# Cover) - This media is an economical card choice for smaller quantities.
- 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.
- Metallic Pearl (14pt) - Enjoy a novel stock that glistens in light when viewed from different angles.
When Do We Start Printing?
Once your order is received, turnaround time requires 5 to 7 business days for all quantities of custom greeting cards. The turnaround time does not include shipping days. That time decreases to 2 to 3 days for most other folded card projects 250 and under.
Greeting Card Template
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."
Further Details About Printing 5x7 Folded Cards
Greeting cards are 10" x 7" (or 7" x 10") cards folded in half. We thoughtfully score each piece, but only hand-fold orders under 100 quantities. We print all greeting cards edge-to-edge (considered full bleed or borderless). We only provide a margin if that area is present in the original artwork.
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.
Greeting cards can be single or double-sided since the price is the same.
Digital Proofs Might Be Useful
If you want 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 helpful for proofreading purposes.
A PDF 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 do not fold them.
A white 70# A7 envelope can accompany greeting cards. If you want colorful envelopes, you need to order from our 5x7 folded cards page.
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).

18pt CS1 CardLearn More
For greeting cards, you may be searching for an ultra-shiny exterior and uncoated interior. The extra UV coating on the outside adds durability to an already thick 18pt card stock. Yet, the uncoated interior provides a good surface for writing on.
Metallic Pearl CardsLearn More
14pt Metallic Pearl paper sparkles in light when viewed from different angles. We embed the card itself with Pearl fibers that give the medium an overall smooth, metallic, and unique appearance.
100% Recycled Kraft CardsLearn More
Kraft paper has natural fibers and subtle visible flecks promoting an organic look and feel. The stock is 100% recycled, advancing its rustic, eco-friendly appeal. Additionally, you can white ink for added "pop" to your designs.

The thinner card options, 70/80# covers, are excellent choices for distributing folded cards to large mailing lists, sending personal thank you cards, and writing to a friend.
Media Intended For RetailView All Cards
We recommend the 100/110# or 120#/130# card options if you are selling on Etsy, selling retail, or need to maintain a higher-end brand. The most popular choice belongs to the "Matte Card (100# Cover)" selection.
