We’re experienced.

With over 1 billion Z-CARD®s produced for a variety of clients and applications, we know production.

Quality printing is our thing.  We can produce as few as 100 and as many as 5 million cards during the production process.  Z-CARD® printing is done with web, sheets or digital presses of all sizes.  Our designers are experienced and will give you their best advice on paper selection, inks and coatings, and a wide range of special material options.  At Z-CARD, we specialize in micro folding and specialty binding for our pocket media.  No design?  No worries.  We provide assistance with design and layout of your card.  If you already created a design, we have listed certain guidelines to follow.  Our full pre-press service includes templates, digital proofs, and ink drawdowns on actual stock.  We also provide you with special color matches and production mock-ups for card and brochure printing.  Here is our production process:

Our Production Process

Design templates
Once you decide on a size, we email you the design templates, which include your design and pre-press checklists, the outer card template and the inner sheet template.

Preflight + Proofing
Once we receive your artwork we will then take your files and create pre-proofs for your review. The following outlines our Design Guidelines and Pre-press checklists (PDF Format).

Manufacturing
Upon final sign-off of proofs we will then begin the printing, folding and binding process.

Materials + Stocks
Our standard outer card stocks are 10pt or 18pt C1S (coated 1 side) board. Our standard inner sheet stock ranges from 40lb to 60lb uncoated and coated.

Turn around times
Schedules are dependant on unit volumes. In general: one week is a “rush” (not including shipping). Two weeks is standard (not including shipping) and three to four weeks are required for orders that exceed 250,000 pieces.
