    Hi everyone,


    I just wondered if it's possible to have border for printed cards? I thought I'd give it a go on my latest order but it looks like the printing was a little off and it's made the the borders very off centre on most of the cards. I guessed it was becasue I set the border along the outer proof line on the template but does this mean neat borders around the edges arent really possible or is there another way around this?

    Hi

    Borders are possible, but we recommend a minimum of 5mm.

    Making cards is a very mechanical process that has many steps so some variation is always possible.

    The border on your cards is 1mm. 0.25mm variation (which is common) of your border means one side is 0.75mm and 1.25mm the other side.
    That is very noticeable, where as the same variation on a 5mm border is almost imperceptible.

    I hope that clears thing up a bit.
