New File Submission Guidelines for Card Decks
These new file submission guidelines apply to all our card deck sizes, Poker, Bridge, Square, Tarot, and Question size cards.
The preferred file format is PDF. The cards should be submitted as single cards in reader format so that each page is an individual card. The individual card should be the overall canvas size based on the single card template for that card size (this can be found in our template database on the website).Please watch and manage the safe zone area!
We are giving the example of a 54 card poker deck but you can make the deck any size by adding more cards, just follow the ordering we provide.
What ever size your deck, group all your faces first and then your backs. So pages 1-54 will be the faces and pages 55-108 will be the backs.
If you have a common back you only need submit a 55 page PDF with the last card the back card.
If your cards are set up to our press sheet template files (18 up on a page for Poker for example) then we still require only one file to be submitted and the page ordering should be as follows:
Face Sheet 1
Back Sheet 1
Face Sheet 2
Back Sheet 2
Face Sheet 3
Back Sheet 3
You would be submitting a 6 page PDF for a 54 card deck.
If you do not have the ability to submit Multi-page PDFs than you can submit your cards as individual cards or set up to our press sheet templates as in the past. Preferred file format is PNG or TIF. We can no longer accept PSD files. The one change here is that you must submit a compressed or zipped file for each product that you order. So if you order 3 different card decks you must submit 3 different files (one with each deck order) and they must be either PDF or ZIP/RAR files.
