Design Cropping

It's not widely recognised but business card sizes can vary slightly in size from country to country - and even business to business. For this reason, your cards may not fit our templates perfectly.

When you upload your old artwork and start to position it, you’ll see an indication of the 'bleed' and 'safe area'. Make sure any colour in your design fills the bleed edge-to-edge, and check that your important information is inside the safe area.

We've put together a dedicated FAQ, which explains the 'bleed', 'trim' and ‘safe area’ more clearly. It also shows common mistakes and how to avoid them.

If you need to alter the design of your card, our artwork guidelines and templates should help.
