Greeting Cards - More Info


A beautifully printed greetings card is worth a hundred e-cards so bring a bit of seasonal cheer this year to someone you know. All our greetings cards are printed using our HP Indigo 100K onto your choice of coated, uncoated or coated one side boards and come with a wide choice of finishes including laminating, spot UV and foiling.


Whether or not you request a proof, all supplied artwork files undertake our rigorous 10 point file check to ensure your printed job turns out exactly as you intend. Files are automatically impositioned ready for printing in the most effective way to minimise waste. 


Choose from our premium range of coated, uncoated or coated one side board (coated one side is a traditional greeting card board with excellent printing characteristics to the coated side but but can be written on inside without any fear of smudging).

High Definition Printing:

HP Indigo technology colour printing easily matches lithographic printing for quality and because Flexpress never gangs jobs together you can be sure your card will be individually printed to look it's very best. You wont receive any products printed on beefed-up photocopiers from us - another reason we back everything with our total satisfaction guarantee.


Lamination adheres a protective Matt, Soft Touch or Glossy plastic film over the outside of the greetings cards. This helps to prevent the outside from marking, scuffing or tearing and adds durability to the finished product.

Precision Finishing:

Greeting cards are cut and finished using precision finishing equipment. Our cards are always creased or creased before folding to reduce the risk of cracking. Flexpress have one of the widest choices of special finishes available anywhere online and you can specify your greeting cards with lamination, spot UV or even metallic foiling.

FAQs - Greeting Cards

Are envelopes included with the printed greeting cards?

If you select the 'Supplied with suitable envelopes' option when building your product above, then we will supply envelopes with your order that will match the size of the greetings cards that you order.

Can you print addresses on the envelopes and mail them out for me?

Yes of course, please request a custom quote and we'd be happy to send you a bespoke price.

I'd like to be able to write on the inside of the greeting cards, what material should I select?

We'd recommend selecting 'Coated 1 Side (300gsm)'. This is a bulky, one-sided board, that has an uncoated inside, which is perfect for writing using a ballpoint pen.

Can I have a custom size greeting card?

Yes you can, however we'd need to do a custom quote as we cannot guarantee to be able to supply envelopes that match.

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 folder artwork must be supplied with 3mm bleed, and a safe zone of at least 10mm. Please avoid placing thin borders, text or important images within this safe zone or close the edge.

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 a FREE artwork template (as above) and use that as your base. When creating folders, please remember to leave the artwork template on the file 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.
