Printing with Borders

The cutting process for printed materials has a mechanical tolerance of about .0625 or 1/16 of an inch. When using a border in your artwork, it is essential that your design use at least .25 or 1/4 of an inch of white space from your border to the cut line to maintain a symmetric appearance.

If the border is solid, and bleeds to the edge of the card, be sure to include bleeds with your file. See printing with bleeds for bleed instructions.

If you are using a line border, be sure to make the line at least .25 pt thick to assure the line prints correctly.
