Round (diameter)

You can specify the diameter, from small to large. Enter the final size which remains after cropping, without bleed.

Single sided printing

The paper will be printed on 1 side

Double sided printing

The paper will be printed on both sides. When you submit multiple files, they will be merged and printed as a whole.

Pre-printed to send

The back will be pre-printed, so you can send it as a post card. We will place our name very small on the back of this card.

Borderless printing

The standard print margin is 5mm, do images or texts extend to the edge? Then choose this option. We will then produce your document in a way where the print margin does not apply (if you do not provide bleed, your document will be enlarged all around by 1mm, we will cut the document back to the correct size).

If you do not choose this option then the outer 5mm (around) will remain unprinted / white (see picture on the right). The "borderless" option is not possible in all combinations.
Tip: Use the preview to see if this option is necessary.

For the experts: 3mm / 5mm bleed persists, crop marks are allowed. With a bleed, we do not enlarge the document.

Warm (off-white) paper of which the structure is slightly visible through the print. The surface is not very rough, but absolutely not smooth either, it feels a bit soft. Color prints and texts come out well, but due to the broken structure prints are less sharp than on smooth paper types.

Eco fiber paper (beige 295 grams)

This ecological paper (almost cardboard) is made from agricultural waste and therefore has a very low 'footprint'. You can slightly feel the fibers of the paper type and due to the production method the surface is not homogeneously constructed. This is not disturbing and gives it a contemporary character. The color is beige and both sides are the same, but the shade does have an effect on the color & readability (we do not print white as the background color). Due to its robustness and structure, this material can also be assessed as cardboard. Excellent writable paper type. Note:It is possible that surface effects are visible through the print.

Suitable for:
cards, business cards, certificates, posters

Not possible with:
binding, coating

Environment: Made from agricultural waste, unbleached compostable, wood free ECF, ISO 14001 (strengthening & controlling environmental conservation)

Basic cut out

The document will be cut out on the chosen size

Pattern cut out

The outer edge of the card is cut out with a pattern. The pattern edge is applied using a robot cutter. These cutters are fast and precise, therefore all cards will be produced the same. You can choose from 6 different variants.

Contour cut out

Your document will be cut on the contour lines. Please note, this is an "expert" option: it is fairly complex to provide this properly in your file. Deliver your document with a separate layer for the contour lines. Look here for instructions.

The contour lines are visible as a blue line in the preview. If the contour lines have not been delivered correctly, a message will appear. Don't see an error? Then you did well!

Complex figures (many sharp corners/very small forms) are difficult to produce and therefore this is not possible.

Folded in the middle (creased)

The card will be delivered unfolded, but with a crease that makes it easy to fold. The chosen size is the final size (possibly after folding). Example: you choose A5 size in combination with middle fold, after folding the card will have the final size A5.

Short sided binding

The document will be folded on the short edge

Round corners

The corners are rounded with a machine in a radius of 3/8" - 9.5mm (a small corner may still be visible).


The coating is a transparent top layer that provides extra shine and protection. This also provides (limited) protection against water (for example, spilling a cup of coffee). You should not compare this to laminate, because the coating is formed by transparent toner that seals the paper and the print.


The print is provided with a protective plastic layer (125um). This layer provides protection while the structure of the paper is preserved.

This laminate is unsuitable for the use of whiteboard markers, this leaves a permanent impression.

Coating front

The front will be coated. With a folded card this only applies to the outside (the inside is not possible)

Coating front and back

The front and back will be coated.

Single sided mat-laminated

The prints are provided with a matt lamination layer of 125um on one side. So every sheet is laminated on the front.

Laminate on both sides

The prints will be provided with a mat laminate layer of 125um on both sides.

We deliver envelopes in high quality (120 grams). We provide them for different card sizes: A5, A6, Square (135x135mm) and Din large (210x99mm). All sizes are available in diverse colors: basic, powerful, dark, pastel and metallic.
