If you need an out of the box method of branding; one that will not feel too salesy, you ought to consider magnetic notepads. They are just notepads, but better because you can place them on fridges, filing cabinets, and any magnetic surface around. Having them at eye level will be effective in putting your brand or product right in front of people's faces, and the professional printing will be a plus.
All files must incorporate a 1/8" bleed on all four sides.
"Bleed" is a printing term used to indicate the area that will be trimmed off after the job is printed and cut down to the finished size. Since the bleed extends 1/8" all around the card, your document set-up should be 1/4" taller (1/8" on top and 1/8" on the bottom) and 1/4" wider (1/8" on the left and 1/8" on the right) than the finished size of the card. The chart below indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size.
