Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality.They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.

What’s the difference between rack cards and postcards?Both products are printed on cardstock; however whereas postcards come in many different sizes, rack cards traditionally are 4" x 9" as this size fits into standard rack displays.
Why the size limitation? 4” x 9” is the proper size for rack display.
What is UV coating? UV coating is a glossy finish added to your rack cards that provides a layer of protection to the paper and also adds shine. You cannot write on products that have UV coating.
