FAQs - Matt Laminated Business Cards
Why do you only offer 400gsm board?
Flexpress only offer a 400gsm board because it offers the perfect compromise between a 450gsm board that many see as too rigid and a 350gsm board that can be seen as flimsy and cheap. Offering just one board thickness helps us keep costs down, avoid errors and improves turnaround times.
What is laminating?
Laminating is the application of an extremely thin layer of plastic over the surface of the card which serves to both protect the print and add a luxurious feel to the surface of the board. Laminating protects the card and adds to it's longevity which, considering you really want people to keep your card, is no bad thing.
What is the best laminate?
The best is subjective, however Matt Laminate is definitely the most popular. It offers extremely good value as a decent balance between protection, tactility and price.
How thick is the laminate?
Each different type of laminate varies slightly from just 24 microns thick (0.024mm) for gloss laminate to 50 microns (0.05mm) for our linen embossed laminate. Even the thickest laminate doesn't noticeably add a difference to the thickness of the card.
Can you write onto a laminated card?
Lamination doesn't accept normal writing ink well. Ideally you'd use a permanent marker. If you're looking for a card you can write on, choose our unlaminated cards, or appointment cards which can be laminated on once side only.
Is there any such thing as a plastic laminate that can be recycled?
A new starch-based laminate is being developed which is the first truly environmentally friendly laminate on the market and as soon as it's commercially available it will be an option on our site. However, as your intention is to get people to keep your card and not dispose of it, maybe considering it's recyclability is missing the point?
Supplied Artwork Specifications – Business Cards
All business card artwork must be supplied in the correct format that has been ordered. For example, if the order has been placed at 85mm x 55mm, the trim box on the supplied file should be set at 85mm x 55mm.
The artwork must be supplied with the correct amount of pages per PDF. For example, a single-sided business card order (Full colour printing to one side) must only have 1 page within the supplied PDF. A double-sided business card (Full colour printing to both sides) must have only 2 pages within the PDF.
Please select a template from the options below. Templates are available in Adobe InDesign, Adobe PDF and Adobe Illustrator formats.
For an excellent job, that's right first time...
Please ensure all artwork is created in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). When creating artwork for print, it's important to use CMYK because it's specifically designed to work with the four color inks used in the printing process (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black). If you use RGB (which is best for digital displays), the printed result may not match what you see on the screen. Therefore, designing artwork in CMYK ensures that the final printed product looks just as you intended.
All Business Card artwork must be supplied with 3mm bleed, and a safe zone of at least 5mm. Please avoid placing thin borders, text or important images within this safe zone.
Please ensure any white text is set to knock-out, and not overprint, as this will result in the white text not appearing on the finished job.
For the best results, Flexpress would always recommend using Adobe InDesign, or Adobe Illustrator to create your artwork. With the best option to download one of our FREE artwork templates (as above) and using that as your base. However, please remember to remove the artwork template when supplying the artwork to us.
All raster images must 300 dpi to ensure your printed image is clear and sharp on your finished job.
When exporting your PDF files, please ensure you select ‘Press Quality' in the output settings to ensure all resolution settings and colour settings are all saved within the final PDF that you will submit to Flexpress. Please also ensure you are also exporting with 3mm bleed and crop marks.
