What kinds of varnish (coating) do you use?

When preparing press-ready digital files, what size should I build my file to?
Please build your press-ready digital files to bleed size by adding 0 .1" dimension for any product that is printed on 14- point cardstock (for example: business cards and postcards) and 0.125" for all other products (for example: brochures and flyers).
What is the required bleed?
Our bleeds vary depending on the product. Please refer to our Download Templates page or our Preparing Files page for more information on the specific bleed for your product. Keep in mind that any files that do not have the proper bleed may delay the order, and add costs.
What if my cards don't bleed?
We require ALL files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size. We automatically trim the bleed off of each side, which will result in the desired trim size.
