Once, you have figured out the design for your die cut business card you will need to submit your artwork to a custom printing company to produce your cards.

When submitting artwork you will need to submit three files. A front and back print file and a mask file.

The mask file will be in black and white only. All black areas should be 100k or only 100% black with no other colors added.

The black areas of the file will be the areas where your business cards will be trimmed.

The submitted files must be Vector files, either Adobe Illustrator files or PDF vector files.

Be aware that there may be a 1/16″ shift on the placement of the die cut. Keep this in mind if you are trying to align your die cut with other printed artwork on the card.
