Your questions answered.

Q. Where do you deliver to?
A. The following delivery prices apply to all the pure black cards, kraft business cards, cotton and pulp cards: UK Mainland delivery is £15, Europe is £25 , United Sates & Middle East £40.
Q. What are the artwork requirements?
A. Our 'Exquisite' cards are printed using Letterpress. This traditional method produces absolutely stunning results but is completely different from the pin point accurate lithographic process and customers should be aware of its limitations. If in doubt we would be pleased to advice on the suitability of a particular design. Alternatively we would be pleased to design your cards for a fixed fee of £40+VAT

Artwork
Should be supplied as vector based pdf artwork only with all fonts converted to outlines/curves

Colours
Use solid not process colours only. Letterpress does not work on the pantone colour range but we will use the closest match.

Fonts
Font size should not be smaller than 6 pt. One should not use very thin fonts or fonts which have a tight letter spacing. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Line Widths and fine graphic elements
Please keep line sizes at .5 pt or above and avoid very fine graphics

Reverse Type
Type and other elements can be reversed out of a solid colour area but please keep in mind that the smaller the image or font size the more likely that parts may "fill in" and merge into the background colour

Choosing the right ink colour and card
Letterpress inks for the most part are translucent in nature, meaning they don't completely cover the surface they are printed on. We therefore always advise to use darker colour inks on lighter colour business cards.
Q. Can we order sample cards?
A. Yes. Please send us an email with your address, contact telephone number and details of the card you are interested in.
Q. How much for full colour print on the exquisite range?
A. Our'exquiste' cards are printed using letterpress which can only facilitate single colour printing. If you required full colour cards or your artwork is very intricate we recommend ordering our HD digitally embossed cards
Q. What are pulp cards?
A. Pulp cards are on average 2-3 times thicker than regualr cards so the edges will be more visable even though their weight is the same
