Business Cards – Instructions


If you are thinking about or have purchased one of our business card packs, please follow the following steps to complete your order:

Step 1

Design your business cards (front and back!). We can print in full CMYK colour (but please note we don't offer Pantone or any special inks as standard - please get in touch if you want something extra special!).

You can download our business card .AI template here:

Step 2

Once you have set up your AI file with your artwork, please save your file as an Adobe PDF. Go to File > Save As and select PDF from the drop-down menu. When saving, select the 'Marks and Bleeds' tab and tick the 'Trim Marks' checkbox. Make sure it is saved as a high-quality PDF suitable for printing. If you have any problems, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

You should purchase your business cards now if you haven't already.

Step 3

Once you have saved your PDF and purchased your business cards, you're all set to go! Just send your PDF file to us at hello[at]dotgrid.co. If it is a big file, we recommend sending us a link to download the PDF from the internet (we recommend Dropbox or Google Drive). Please let us know your order number in this email and give us a suitable subject heading!
