Spot Color Short Fold Business Cards

Short Fold business cards finish at a flat size of 3.5 X 3.6875, and are designed to fold down to a standard business card size, leaving a show area of 5/16". When the fold is closed, 5/16" of the bottom of the inside of the card will show. Short Fold cards are scored and ship flat.

You can specify up to two ink colors for the outside, and up to two ink colors for the inside. Choose from our 18 standard ink colors, or upgrade to other PMS ink(s) (Fluorescent Inks not available).

Raised ink on the outside of the card is the standard, and by default the inside prints as all flat ink. You can, however, choose other options. On the outside, you may change to flat print, or upgrade to a combination of raised and flat printing. On the inside, you may change to all raised ink. (Mixing flat and raised ink is not available on the inside.)

As an upgrade, foil or embossing can be added. You may select foil on the outside, the inside, or on both sides of the card. Embossing may be added to the outside only.

Choose from many paper stock options, or supply your stock to us (see details under "Card Stocks" below).

If the ink in your art bleeds (if a background or graphic element is designed to print to the edge of the piece, or is closer to the edge than the standard 1/8" margin), a charge of $6 per edge is added. (Note that foil cannot bleed.)

Other features affecting your order can include:

  • PMS ink color other than our standard colors - Add $25/color (Fluorescent Inks not available)
  • Heavy ink coverage (solid areas covering 50% or more of the card) - Add $12
