Why our print shop & print team is awesome

Pre-Press

 

We do not use robots or ai or cookie-cutter prepress software. We use human eyes to preview every file you send us, making sure they are sized correctly for the products you order, and making adjustments when necessary to ensure your files will print perfectly. Edge-to-edge printing (called "Bleed" artwork) requires extra special setup, and we take care of this for you too.

 

Believe it or not, 90% of the files we receive need some sort of adjustments to get them press-ready, and we offer this file-checking & editing service at no extra cost. In most cases you won't even know we fixed something. We only reach out to request additional information or formatting fees if tweaking your sizing or bleeds will take longer than the standard 5-10 minutes, or if we are not able to edit them because of an unsupported file format, low image resolution or other complications that make edits impossible.

 

Our pre-press team truly cares about your finished product, and may even reach out offering to adjust your artwork, borders, or other elements in a way that may improve or balance your overall design, offering suggestions along the way.

 

Printing

 

Our Print Operators are experts at knowing how your unique designs will print best and make adjustments to printers, color codes and paper profiles depending on the image type, ink coverage, ink colors and paper you have selected. They take pride in every print that comes through the press and have mastered how to get the best results on over 120 specialty paper stocks.

Acrylic prints are handled with extra care, and each blank is carefully inspected for scratches or scuffs, and polished with microfiber before printing to remove any dust or particles that could cause chipping or skipping during the print process.

 

Post-Press

 

Last but not least, our finshing & quality team put the finishing touches on your print job, precisely measuring (not once but twice), cutting and inspecting your final pieces to ensure your files printed perfectly, were cut perfectly and are ready to get into your hands.

Why people love our envelopes

Cards & Pockets envelopes have been a favorite of calligraphers and lettering artists all around the world for quite some time now. We have heard people raving about how much they love the look, quality and performance of our envelopes over the years and with good reason. It has always been important to us that the materials and shapes we use to produce our stationery products are thoughtful and unique. We designed the original shape of our European Flap envelopes to be refined and distinct, appealing to anyone and everyone who gets the opportunity to hold one in their hands or embellish one with ink.


Beautiful envelopes begin with beautiful papers, and our papers are sourced from the finest and most historic mills--primarily in Europe. We are extremely selective when it comes to our paper offering, which is why our envelopes are heavier in weight/thickness than most. We work closely with our local envelope manufacturers while also supplementing with our own short-run envelopes in house, giving us the unique ability to carefully monitor and perfect our product every step of the manufacturing process.

Our Hospitality Promise

When you work with Cards & Pockets you will find a passionate team of people who are here to work alongside you to make your project perfect. One of our core values--hospitality--is at the core of everything we do. We want you to feel at home when you are browsing our site, working with our friendly customer service team or tackling your challenging projects with us. Our desire is to make your stationery dreams come true and for you to feel comfortable and confident in the process.
