If you are ordering Shaped Business Cards, your design may contain rounded corners on all edges.
In order to ensure that our automated guillotines don't trim into your corner radius, we recommmend that you keep your cutter guide 3mm from the page edge. This will mean that your final Shaped Business Cards will be slightly smaller than our standard 55 x 85mm.
If you need to order a set of Shaped Business Cards that are 53 x 83mm or larger then we'd recommend ordering some A7 shaped thick flyers instead.
You will need to supply us with a cutter guide, to do this place your cut shape onto a 3rd page in your PDF and follow our die-cut guidelines.
Nicks to hold your cut-outs
To prevent a cut out shape from ‘falling out’ of the sheet, we will place small nicks in the cut lines. These nicks are made with a grinding wheel. We will always use the minimum number of nicks required to keep the required shape intact until it is packed.
Waste and Pushing-Out
It is more difficult to push out shapes with no guillotined edges, therefore an additional cost is provided to remove the attached waste. Please ask for a price.
