Satisfying our customers with high quality printing results of their plastic cards is a very serious matter to us. To realize this matter in the most successful way, we have some minimum requirements regarding the printing data of our clients.
The standard plastic cards have the size of 86 x 54 x 0,76 mm with rounded edges (radius 3mm). Your plastic card layout must stick out at least 2 mm beyond that shape – This helps avoiding the development of a white margin around your plastic cards, when they are being produced. Please use the CMYK color space while preparing your layout. RGB colors are not realizable and converting them afterwards from RGB to CMYK color space, may cause an intense change of colors. The printing resolution must be at least 300 dpi. We also suggest you to use vectorized instead of pixel-based data in your layout to maximize the printing quality (company logo i.e.). Fonts must be converted into paths at any case.
We accept following file formats:
- .pdf – printable PDF
- .psd – Adobe Photoshop v.7 or lower for PC
- .ai or .eps – Adobe Illustrator v.10 or lower for PC
