How to download my files for an online printer or a print shop?
If you are printing with an online professional printer or a professional brick and mortar printer (like uprinting.com, Shutterfly or Staples professional printing services), you should choose the JPEG file with “Add bleed” option under download>JPEG, you will be able to download a single JPEG file with bleed margin (standard 1/8″ bleed) for professional printing.
If you are printing with a photo printer (like Walgreens or Walmart), you should choose the JPEG file without any bleed under download>JPEG. These printers don’t offer back printing but are more budget-friendly.
If you are printing with a document printer (like Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, FedEx etc.), you should choose the lettersize PDF file under download>PDF. These print shops will have a self-service Office Printer. You will be able to print your PDF and then trim your cards.
How to download my files for double-sided front & back card printing?
For front & back printing with a professional printer, we recommend downloading individual front & back JPEG files with bleed under Download>JPEG. You will then be able to upload the JPEGs on your printer’s website or email them to your printer.
For front & back printing at home, we recommend downloading individual front & back JPEG files under download>JPEG. Using pre-cut 5×7″ cards (or another size that fits your card’s size), print the front JPEG first, then turn the card over, put it back in the printer and print the back JPEG. It’s more time consuming and less practical to print at home and you will need some practice to align the cards correctly with your printer.
How to download my files for front & back fan program printing?
You will also be able to print the front and back of the fan program one next to each other on a PDF page. Then trim around them before folding the page in the middle around a stick. We recommend to use the ‘Leaflet’ printing mode in the PDF Download menu in that case.
