Printing Your Pre-Designed Cards

Print your own wedding designs

Are you a graphic designer or have a loved one who has already designed something just for you? Did you already download an invitation design from a maketplace site like Etsy, but need it professionally printed on high end papers? You can easily upload your own completed files and have us print them for you. You will have access to our full range of paper options and printing processes. Please follow our guide to ordering your Self Designed Cards.

Need a unique custom quote? In addition to flat and folded cards on our many paper stocks, we offer printing with white ink and the ability to add foil to our printed invitations. We can also custom order special stocks as needed. Request a Custom Quote - we would love to make your design come to life!

INVITATION BLEED

Printing invitations with a bleed

WHAT IS A BLEED?

Full-bleed printing means that you want your piece to be printed without borders from edge to edge. Bleed is that ink that goes beyond the edge of the paper after we trim it to the final size. By extending the ink beyond the trim, it helps compensate for any mechanical tolerances of the printing process, preventing an unwanted white border from showing at the edge.

If you want a background color or image to print to the edge of your page you will need to design your file with a 1/8" bleed on all 4 sides. As an example, if you want a 5x7 full bleed postcard you will need to send us a 5.25x7.25 file. We also require a 1/8" safety margin on all 4 sides. We recommend uploading high resolution PDF files to ensure the best printing quality. Since we cannot be responsible for files we did not design, we recommend ordering a printed proof. See our FAQ for more details.
