Have sympathy cards printed − respectful folded cards for dignified compassion
Even in the digital age, there are areas that can manage without digitization. This includes messages of condolence. While the birthday card has already been widely replaced by email or WhatsApp messages, when it comes to a bereavement, the sympathy card is still the most dignified option for expressing condolences to relatives. It makes no difference whether it is a preprinted card with a message appropriate to the circumstances or if the sender has handwritten the card themselves. What is important is the personal expression of sympathy, showing the family members that they are not alone in their grief. At print24.com, you can have high-quality and respectful sympathy cards printed with your own personal design.

You can choose from these formats for your sympathy cards
We can print your sympathy cards in several classic standard formats. You can choose from folded cards in A5, A6 or A7. With the DL format, you have a wide format that is particularly suitable for sending by post in a long envelope. All standard sizes can be printed in landscape or portrait format. One very special card size is the maxi card format. This offers 125 x 235 mm of space for your messages of sympathy, mourning poems and any words of your own. You also have the option of having sympathy cards printed in customised or square formats. You just need to make sure that you stay between the minimum size of 74 x 74 mm and the maximum size of 125 x 235 mm.
Please bear in mind when creating your print file that our cards are folded cards. The information on card size always refers to the closed sympathy card.
Print sympathy cards in standard and custom colours
You have a great many printing options for your sympathy cards. If you opt for the classic 4/0 CMYK four-colour process, you can easily have photos, graphics and texts printed. This means that you can be very flexible in your choice of print design. If, however, the sympathy cards should be kept very simple, you can also have them printed just in black. Furthermore, we also offer the choice of spot colours such as HKS or Pantone. We combine these colours with CMYK printing. In this way, even more colour options are created. One very stylish alternative is the printing of lettering in gold or silver. These two special colours are also combined with CMYK printing at print24.com. In this way, you could, for example, have a beautiful picture of the deceased printed on the thank-you card and then add text in silver.
Sympathy card printing on high-quality paper and premium card
At print24.com, we offer three premium coated printing papers for your sympathy thank-you cards or sympathy cards. You can choose from thicknesses of 170 gsm, 250 gsm and 350 gsm. One very fine and high-quality option is to print on premium card or chromo board. The back of the chromo board is uncoated and so offers space for some handwritten words. If you select premium card, you then also have a great many finishing options for your sympathy cards. It is also possible to print on plain offset paper or white recycled paper. Offset paper has the advantage that it can be further edited using a copier or printer. Our recycled paper is ideal for environmentally conscious customers. The paper is “Blue Angel” certified.
Please note that sympathy cards with a weight of 300 gsm or more are delivered unfolded.
Your finishing options for sympathy cards
You have the greatest choice of finishing options if you have your folded cards printed on premium card or chromo board. Then you can, for example, select cellophane finishing, which will give the cards a very special feel. Here you can choose between a soft-touch, linen, matt or gloss finish. Individual lettering or whole surfaces can be coated with UV varnish. One very elegant option is hot foil flat embossing. Hot foil relief embossing is also possible. And finally, blind embossing is available as well.
We would be happy to help you with your choice of finish, either over the phone or via online messaging. Please note that there are fewer finishing options available for coated printing papers and offset papers.
Important details for creating the print file for your sympathy cards
Your sympathy cards are folded cards that have four printable sides. Therefore, it is important to number the pages in your print file in the correct order. Page one is the front and page four the back. Pages two and three are the inner sides. So that your design is not cropped during the processing of the printed cards, please create a bleed of at least 2 mm on every side that is going to be trimmed. Also, a minimum resolution of 300 dpi is recommended for a well-balanced printing result. We can work with print files in PDF, TIFF or JPEG format.
You have the option of checking in advance how your sympathy cards will look after printing. Simply order a screen proof via the configuration menu. We will then create a digital preview of your sympathy card and send it to your customer account. You can view the result on-screen and decide whether to continue with or cancel the print job. If you decide to cancel, there is no additional cost to you apart from the charge for the screen proof.
