Greeting Card Printing
KainosPrint offers greeting cards in the popular 125x175mm format when folded and the popular ‘Double DL’ format.
The unfolded size for the 125x175mm cards is 250x175mm. We trim and score the cards in the middle so they can be folded, but supply them to you flat.
The unfolded size for the Double DL cards is 210x198mm. Folded brings them back to DL size — 210x99mm. We trim and score the cards in the middle so they can be folded, but supply them to you flat.
We offer greeting cards in your choice of three heavy card stocks — 300gsm satin or gloss, and 310gsm single sided super gloss. Greeting cards are always printed in full colour on the front, but can be full colour, black and white, or blank on the reverse side. If your greeting cards have full colour images on both sides, we recommend the 300gsm gloss or satin stock. If you want your greeting cards to be printed in black and white on the reverse side and if you want to be able to write on them, consider using our single sided super gloss although there is no problem writing on the less expensive 300gsm gloss or satin stocks.
Multiple designs for the cost of the total ordered
If your order is for 1000 cards or less, you can have up to eight different greeting card designs for the cost of the total number of cards (two, four, six, or eight designs). For orders of over 1000 cards we will print two designs for the cost of the total number of cards. You could order 125 each of eight designs, and pay the 1000 greeting card rate plus a small surcharge. Orders of more than 1000 cards would be printed offset where the same flexibility as to the number of designs does not apply. This does not mean we can’t print multiple designs, but you should obtain a quote from us. Click here to go to our custom quote request form.
