Here are our design tips for effective rack cards:
BusinessPrinting.com specializes in high-quality, custom print products, not basic template designs.
Configure your product and our dynamic template generator gives you a blank template with the correct size, bleed, and trim. To try other specifications, simply change your options and generate a new template. The changes will be reflected in the new template.
Download the file, import it to a design program, and start creating. For existing designs, just copy it to the template and adjust as needed.
With Perfect ProofTM, you have total control of your project. No more guesswork. No more anxiety. No more limitations. All specifications - paper, folding, finishes and more - are included, so you know exactly what to expect when you receive your finished product.
Here is a typical turnaround scenario for requesting Perfect ProofTM
Your file set up will depend on if your rack cards print on one side or two sides. Please use our press-ready template to ensure correct margins, bleeds, and crop lines.
If your rack cards are for Front Only Printing, we will need a one-page PDF of the artwork, or a single JPG.
If you are printing on the Front & Back of your rack cards, we will need a two-page PDF, one page for the front and one page for the back, or you can send us two single-page PDFs — one for the front and one for the back. Likewise, you can upload two JPG files.
If your rack cards have options like folding or perforations, you’ll be able to check the placement and design on both your template and your digital proof. If your cards have perforations, ensure your artwork, both in the tear-off perforation section and the main section, aligns properly so parts of your design are not accidentally torn off.
If you are unsure of how to upload your rack card artwork so it prints correctly, please call our customer support team — we’re happy to help!
