Pre Cut Card



HOW TO PRINT WITH YOUR HOME PRINTER


    Printer Types

Inkjet printers usually have a straight through paper path. This means you can print heavier card as its not having to wind its way around rollers. For best results, use the highest print quality setting available.

Laser or LED printers generally require heat to set the toner, so they tend to wind through the machine. This makes printing on card or board stock trickier. However, some printers have a straighter print path design, which will make printing heavier stocks more achievable.

TIP: Always print a test sheet

THE LAYERED LOOK

To use Pre-Cuts as a bottom layer, youll need to print a top layer and trim it to the right size.

So you can have the most options available, weve created text or paper weight options (140gsm or less) in A5 size from stocks easily printed on. This is so you can print bleed - printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming click here for a deeper explanation of bleed.

An A5 sheet can accommodate a design with bleed for any of our Pre-Cut sizes.
The way the page is set up depends upon the software youre using (MS Word, Publisher, Adobe InDesign etc,).


HOW TO PRINT A TOP LAYER

2. Create/Add trim marks to show you where to cut
3. Allow for at least 3mm bleed all the way around
