"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.
Be aware that text or images too close to the TRIM LINE (shown in SOLID PINK) will be cut off. Make sure that your background image extends 1/8" past the TRIM LINE.
In the above illustration, the background image needs to extend to the BLUE LINE. Be sure to extend the background image to bleed or the white of the paper may show in the final cut down product. The chart above indicates what the document set-up should be for a particular finished size

Stand Out - the right way!
What drives most consumers to choose one brand over another? With so many strong competitors popping up every day, business owners spend countless hours trying to figure just how the be ‘chose one'. And many of those times the way they choose to stand out is far more detrimental to their image than doing nothing at all. Velvet greeting cards are a risk-free way to get noticed: there's nothing regrettable about coming across as sophisticated, exclusive or elegant.
There are many companies offering nearly identical products, what sets one business apart from the other often times comes down to an emotional connection that comes from experiences, give them just that with a custom printed greeting card that's a journey for the senses.
There are many ways to foster customer loyalty, but at the heart of it is working hard to ensure that each customer feels as though they are number one. A simple way to accomplish this is by sending customized velvet greeting cards to customers big and small, add a special touch making sure their addressed to them specifically.
On the other hand if you want to send your regards to friends and relatives, you can stand out with greeting cards made out of a thick and delicate cardstock that shows you do pay attention to detail and don't mind the occasional splurge (the fact that they're actually affordable, will be your little secret).
Business greeting card rules to live by
Sending out business greeting cards is not at all like sending out cards to friends and family. Although you want to make them personal, you do not want them to offend or appear unprofessional in nature. For holiday greetings, remember to avoid any religious sentiments.
Steer clear of humor since it is difficult to predict what others find funny. The last thing you want is to upset your customers.
We suggest creating a general pre-printed message for your cards and then hand writing personal notes inside each one. Whether you are sending your velvet greeting cards to existing customers, potential customers or suppliers, adding a handwritten note with a personal message regarding a specific occurrence demonstrates your appreciation for their business.
Remember to make every effort to leave a signed signature on each card; a pre-printed signature leaves your greeting card feeling cold and impersonal.
By going out of your way to write a personal note, recipients of your cards will appreciate that you took time out of your busy schedule to recognize their loyalty to your products and services. It's simply another way to enhance your professional relationship.
When it comes time to send out your one of a kind velvet greeting cards, make sure to confirm the spelling and proper title for each customer. To make your life easier, purchase matching envelopes professionally printed with your company name and address. Printing your logo on the envelope is also a nice touch.
If you haven't already, you should update your mailing list to ensure that you aren't leaving anyone out. Also review each address on your list to confirm that there are no errors.
The best time to mail holiday greeting cards is right after Thanksgiving. By doing so, you will guarantee that everyone on your holiday card list will receive theirs before all those holiday parties begin.
Greeting Cards - Not just for holidays
Have you ever wanted to go the extra mile with your loyal clients? Of course, that's why it's not only a nice but smart business move to send them birthday greetings. Design a velvet custom greeting card that is non-gender specific. Remember to keep the printed message simple and neutral in order to not insult anyone.
Keep a record of everyone's birthday and send yourself a reminder at least a week in advance in order for them to be received on time. Before sending them off in the mail, sit down and take a moment to write a kind message and personally sign it.
Is a customer or long time supplier commemorating an anniversary? Expanding? Celebrating a personal accomplishment? Why not send them a congratulatory greeting card! Since the majority of consumers patronize establishments that they feel a personal connection with, sending out special greetings and recognizing their achievements only strengthens your relations. Buy them in bulk and have them ready when you need them.
Best Business Practices for Greeting Cards:
We understand the urge to sell is always in your bones, but at all costs avoid turning your personalized velvet greeting cards into a marketing campaign. Do not add coupons or announce upcoming events or products. Doing this will diminish the effectiveness of the greeting card and transform what should be a genuine note of thanks into a ploy for more business.
Although the majority of your daily correspondence is done via email, this is not the way to go during the holidays or for occasions that require a note of congratulations. The good old US postal service is still the preferred method of sending greeting cards. It's just proper etiquette.
