  • Does my custom design meet the specifications?

    Uploaded files must fill the entire area to the full bleed dimensions. Please view our GUIDELINES. What you see on the preview is what will be printed. Please view our MOST COMMON MISTAKES on what is considered a correct upload versus an incorrect upload. Keep in mind the preview does not represent the actual size of the card after print.

  • What are the file specifications I should design to?

    For better understanding of our cutting marks and safe zones please click at Guidelines & Cutting Explained.

    At Overnight Prints we allow printing to the edge of the products and we take pride in having the tightest cutting margins available. These margins are 1,61mm and are named full-bleed (green line) and safe zone (red line).

    Trim Marks (Blue Line)
    The product will be cut on the trim mark (blue line), however the cut may shift up to 1mm in any direction. Due to this shift Overnight Prints does not recommend borders of any type.

    Full Bleed (Green Line)
    If you wish to have coloured backgrounds or images continue to the edge of the product they must continue past the trim marks to the full bleed margin. If they do not continue to the full bleed margin you most likely will end up with white strips along the edge of the product due to our cutting tolerance.

    Safe Zone (Red Line)
    Text or any other elements you don't want to be trimmed off must be placed within the safe zone. If they are placed directly next to the trim mark and the cutting is off but within tolerance, the text will be chopped off. Due to our cutting process and tolerance we do not recommend borders of any kind. By our policy we are protected to cut 1,61mm outside or inside the Trim Marks.
