Have birthday cards printed − you have the ideas, we take care of the printing
Of course, the gift is the most important thing when it comes to a birthday. But aren’t lovingly designed details important as well? After all, who wants to receive just a gift on its own, without an individual inscription or any sort of personal touch? This has always been the function of birthday cards. But when you go to the shop to choose a birthday card, the selection is not exactly inviting. It’s always the same old designs and lettering styles.
How about simply getting creative and designing your own birthday cards? For example, with a great photo from your holiday or of the garden? Or use your expertise in image editing and create your own very individual design? Your friends and acquaintances are sure to particularly enjoy this kind of custom-made card. Of course, these birthday cards can also be designed to serve as personalised birth announcements, exciting wedding cards, customised postcards or greeting cards!
Birthday card printing for your business
In addition to private clients, our printed birthday cards are also aimed at businesses. After all, it is a part of meaningful and efficient customer relationship management to pay a little attention to your customers on their birthdays. How about a personal birthday card in your corporate design with a small voucher for your business? Or, alternatively, a custom-printed birthday card for your employees? Take advantage of the wide range of design and configuration options at print24.com and start creating your birthday cards right here online.
That little bit extra − print birthday cards with custom colours
As standard, we offer the 4/0 CMYK four-colour process for birthday card printing. This allows the perfect realisation of photos, texts, logos and graphics. However, a very simple print in black is also possible. If you want to make a little more of your birthday cards, we at print24.com can also offer you the choice of Pantone or HKS spot colours. This option is useful if, for instance, you want to use custom colours for your corporate design. If you would like to print your birthday cards with HKS or Pantone, simply select the desired spot colour from the configuration menu. Combining this with CMYK printing gives you unlimited colour options. The use of gold and silver is part of the classic birthday card look. At print24.com, you can stylishly supplement your designs with lettering in gold or silver.
Do you want to know beforehand how your folded cards will look? Then, for a small surcharge, we can create a screen proof for you. This is a digital preview of your print job. We send the image file to your customer account and you can see the result on-screen. If you are happy with it, you can then continue with the print job. If you decide to cancel, there is no additional cost to you apart from the charge for the screen proof.
Print birthday cards in standard and special formats
Make more of your birthday cards and choose, for example, an unusual format. At print24.com, you can specify special formats, for example, square cards. You just need to make sure that you stay within the size range of 74 x 74 mm to 125 x 235 mm. If you want to send your birthday cards by post, you should bear in mind when choosing the dimensions of your special format that the card will need to fit into an appropriate envelope. In addition to the special formats, you can also have your birthday cards printed in five standard formats. With folded cards in A7, you can opt for a very small format. These cards can, for example, be perfectly placed in a bouquet or attached to a small present. In addition, you have the choice between the DL, A4 and A6 formats.
Please note when choosing your format that the dimensions given always refer to the closed birthday card. Cards can be printed in either landscape or portrait format. Simply select the option you would prefer from the menu. Do you have any further questions about printing or format choice? Or can we help you with the configuration of your birthday cards? Then give us a call or get in touch via online messaging.
Seven paper choices
We can print your birthday cards on high-quality premium coated printing paper in a weight of either 170 gsm, 250 gsm or 350 gsm. Additionally, you also have the option of a 400-gsm premium card or a 300-gsm chromo board with an uncoated reverse side. The advantage of this board is that you can write on the back. If you select offset paper for printing your cards, you can custom-edit the products later on your own printer or copier. Printing on white recycled paper is also possible; the paper is “Blue Angel” certified.
Please note that, depending on the paper selected, not all finishing options may be available.
Tips on creating the print file for your birthday cards
Birthday cards from print24.com are four-sided printable folded cards. For this reason, you must specify the page numbers precisely in your print file. The first page corresponds to the front of the card, pages two and three are the inside and page four is the back of the card. It is important that you create a bleed of at least 2 mm on every edge that is going to be trimmed. We recommend a print resolution of 300 dpi for optimum birthday card printing. You can save the print file as a PDF, JPEG or TIFF. After printing, your cards will be delivered to you folded. If you select a paper with a weight of more than 300 gsm, we will deliver your folded cards unfolded. For all other print specifications and tips for creating the print file, please refer to the datasheet. This can be found in the “Product” section of the menu.
Finishing and additional processing options
At print24.com, there are several ways to make your birthday cards even more appealing. For example, almost all the cards can be given cellophane finishing, with which you have a choice of a soft-touch, gloss, matt or linen finish. If you opt for printing on chromo board or premium card, then you have a great many more finishing options to choose from, such as UV spot varnish or UV coating, hot foil flat or relief embossing, relief varnish and blind embossing.
In addition, creasing or perforating the cards is also possible. We recommend a crease for cards with a weight of 170 gsm or more. A perforation is very useful if, for example, you want to send your customers a birthday card that comes with a coupon for your shop. Then the birthday boy or girl can tear off the voucher to redeem it and not have to bring the whole birthday card with them.
