What is a Silk Laminated Greeting Card Print?

Silk laminated greeting card printing involves applying a thin layer of silk laminate to the surface of the greeting card, creating a smooth and elegant finish that enhances both the look and feel of the card. Here’s a breakdown of what a silk laminated greeting card print entails:

  1. Silk Laminate Coating:
    • The silk laminate is a thin layer of plastic coating applied to the surface of the greeting card.
    • It has a smooth and silky texture, similar to the feel of a soft-touch matte finish.
    • The laminate adds a layer of protection to the card, making it more durable and resistant to scratches, fingerprints, and moisture.
  2. Enhanced Visual Appeal:
    • The silk laminate enhances the visual appeal of the greeting card by adding depth and richness to the colors and design.
    • It creates a subtle sheen that makes colors appear more vibrant and images more vivid.
    • The smooth finish of the laminate provides a clean and professional look that elevates the overall aesthetic of the card.
  3. Tactile Experience:
    • In addition to its visual benefits, the silk laminate also enhances the tactile experience of the greeting card.
    • The smooth and silky texture invites recipients to touch and feel the card, creating a more engaging and memorable interaction.
    • The luxurious feel of the laminate adds a sense of quality and sophistication to the card, making it stand out from standard paper cards.
  4. Customization Options:
    • Silk laminated greeting cards offer various customization options to suit your preferences and design needs.
    • You can choose from different cardstock options, including thickness and finishes, to achieve the desired look and feel.
    • Additionally, you can incorporate additional embellishments such as foil stamping, embossing, or spot UV coating to further enhance the design and make the card truly unique.
  5. Versatility and Usability:
    • Silk laminated greeting cards are versatile and suitable for a wide range of occasions, including holidays, birthdays, weddings, and more.
    • They can be used for personal or professional purposes, such as sending heartfelt messages to friends and family or promoting business services and products.
    • The durability of the laminate ensures that the greeting card will maintain its pristine appearance over time, making it a cherished keepsake for recipients.

In summary, silk laminated greeting card printing offers a combination of visual appeal, tactile experience, and durability, making it an excellent choice for creating elegant and memorable cards for any occasion.

File Setup

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

If you are uploading PDF files created in Photoshop, please be sure all layers are flattened.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
