Art Guidelines for Custom 4.25x5.5 Folded Cards
If the following guidelines seem like Dovahzul language to you, don't let it be game over. Our skilled professionals analyze all artwork before printing begins. If we cannot resolve difficulties, we discover that one of our courteous staff members will be in touch quickly.
- The most important thing we need from you is the bleed area. Try to prepare your art files with 5.8" x 8.8" (spread format) or 5.75" x 4.375" (individual sides) dimensions. If needed, we can make adjustments, so concentrate on keeping valuable components at least 0.25 inches away from the edges.
- Carefully study the quality settings to identify if you produce in a 300dpi space. Many conventional 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 a tremendous step in the right direction toward quality.
- We cherish PDF or JPG files. Don't worry; our artists accept other files such as PNG, EPS, PSD, AI, and TIF. We do not open DOC, PUB, or PPT files. Thankfully, most Microsoft programs allow you to export your file as a PDF.
- Try examining your digital artwork in CMYK color mode. We convert all files to CMYK. Many designers casually work in RGB, but this color mode is fundamentally for digital media. The CMYK conversion process can lead to softened colors or various color shifts. If this is your first time printing cards with a commercial printer, we recommend ordering a PDF proof.
- Please remove trim or crop marks from your artwork. We use our cutlines. Sometimes, designers leave these marks on the art, but we will ask you to remove them before production.

Extra 4.25x5.5 Folded Card Details
4.25x5.5 single or double-sided cards are available. Single-sided cards include the front and back of the card. A double-sided card adds the inside area.
We carefully score each card for folding perfection. Orders 100 cards and under are shipped already folded. Large orders remain flat when sent for safe transportation. All 4.25x5.5 cards are considered "full bleed" or "borderless." We only provide a white margin if present in the original artwork.
Single or Double-Sided 4.25x5.5 Cards?
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 for Folded Cards
Don't worry; we briefly review all files for quality purposes. If we see obvious problems, we will still send you a preview ensuring your prints look correct! If you need a digital sample, please select the appropriate proof option. A digital PDF proof may delay an order by a single business day but save us all from unexpected mistakes.
Folding Your Cards
We score all 4.25x5 custom-printed folded cards. However, please note we only fold orders under 100.
Three Envelope Choices
Three envelope choices are available for 4.25.5x5.5 folded cards: Vellum White, Kraft, and Natural. Please note that the natural envelope is a bit darker in person than you may see on the screen.
Will My Art Fit With 4.25" x 5.5" Folded Cards?
Printing Art as 4.25" x 5.5" Folded Cards.
First, we can usually make almost any picture work as folded cards. Our team is here to help. Some art may fit the 4.25" x 5.5" space better than the 5" x 7" workspace. These dimensions place nice with the 4.25" x 5.5" area.
- 8" x 10"
- 8.5" x 11"
- 11" x 14"
- 16" x 20"
We will let you know if your artwork fits the 5" x 7" dimension better. We offer this advice to avoid uneven margins, unwanted clipping, and yucky stretching.
