Which papers can you choose for custom card printing?

We have two categories of papers, Standard and Premium, offering a total of 11 papers for you to choose from. Our standard papers include a matt-coated paper, a gloss-coated paper and a brilliant white uncoated paper. Our premium papers are perfect for a more sophisticated look and feel and they have a variety of effects, ranging from recycled paper, orange-peel-effect paper to pearl paper, to name just a few. Click on the information button next to each one to see a brief description and select the ideal paper for your custom card printing.

Custom card printing - Folding options

Our online form allows you to choose the paper size, orientation, folds and a myriad of printing options such as black and white or four-colour printing. We also recommend the ideal paper types and weights to ensure optimal printing and customer satisfaction. For example, some thicker types of paper are not suitable if your project will contain a large number of folds. The website will guide you to the best choices but if you’re still unsure, why not order our Paper Sample Pack first and get a better feel for the various options. The variety of paper choices available ensures your bespoke printing project will have the tailor-made look and feel which is essential for ensuring your brand comes across in the desired manner.

When it comes to choosing the folding method for your folded leaflet or brochure, some of our most popular folding options are as follows:

  • No fold – A great option if simplicity is key to your project and you can fit all the information on one page. Ideal for flyers, postcards and invitation cards.
  • Z-fold – Contains two folds creating six sides. Great if you have large images that will overlap several sides and make an impact, but also suitable for a different design and text on each side.
  • Tri-fold – A convenient option as there is plenty of space for text and graphics but it folds up neatly to make distribution less expensive and cumbersome. Ideal for cheap brochure printing.
  • Gate fold – Grabs the reader’s attention by revealing information gradually and is again cost-effective as it can contain plenty of information but then folds up to a smaller size for easy distribution.

Other options available include:

  • Half-fold
  • French fold
  • Accordion fold
  • Roll fold
  • 1 fold
  • A combination of folds

Your artwork options for custom card printing

If you already have your artwork ready, you can simply click the “upload your file” option. Don’t worry if you have not created your print file yet, though, because we have options to help you. You can use our Designer tool to create your file online or you can choose one of our Design services for a fee. We can either edit your artwork for you if you need to change a few things and would like some help or we can create the design for you based on your ideas. Custom card printing has never been easier!

Custom card printing and delivery

Ease of use is of the utmost importance at Pixartprinting, which is why our online form has been created with this in mind. A downloadable Instructions Manual and template is also available so that each client can optimise their graphic file prior to submission. Once complete, graphic files can be uploaded to the Pixartprinting website or sent via post.

Each bespoke printing order requires a minimum of 50 units.

For those with a stringent turnaround time, orders can be delivered in as little as 48 hours. Those that order in advance will benefit from a reduced cost, however Pixartprinting offers competitive prices for all delivery options. Professional Graphic Designers can also verify your design for optimal printing for a negligible surcharge.
