DAP44-CU – Plus One Postcard With Imprinting

(Plus One Card) (4-Color) (Bleed)

(With Imprinting)

Paper: 82#, 9pt coated card stock

Size / Design – Specifications:

  • Live Image Area: 8.1667 inches x 4.667 inches (588 points x 336 points)
  • Trim: (where the paper will be cut – Do not build to this size): 8.5 inches x 5 inches (612 pts x 360 pts)
  • Bleed Area: 8.75 inches x 5.25 inches (630 points x 378 points)

Plus One:  Is a Bleed** product, so background images and art elements can extend into the Bleed area of the template. Keep all layout elements that you don’t want to be trimmed or cropped, inside of the Live Image Area of the template. The Imprinting Area and Address Area must be clear of all backgrounds, images, artwork or text.

** IMPORTANT Note about Bleed Products: Valpak’s templates are intentionally built without bleed settings applied. If using a Valpak template and your product calls for a bleed, do not enter any bleed settings. Instead, simply build your layout according to the bleed margins designated on the template.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO DESIGNERS: Valpak requires designating a 3 inch x .6 inch area of white space for the imprinting code. Click the link below for more details of the imprinting area.

Example of a properly built Plus One Imprinting product:


Side 1 (Postcard Side) layout visual showing where the Bleed Area and Live Image Area are located.

Side 2 (Address Side) layout visual showing where the Bleed Area, Live Image Area, and Address Area are located. The Imprinting Area can reside anywhere inside of the Live Area, providing that it does not interfere with the Address Area. There are two options for the Imprinting Area (Code Left) & (Code Above).

 CRITICAL DESIGN NOTE:  The Imprinting Area and Address Area must be clear of all backgrounds, images, artwork or text.


How to build a Plus One Imprinting Product:

Background images and art elements can extend into the Bleed Area of the template. Keep all other text, logo, and important layout elements inside of the Live Image Area of the template. The Imprinting Area and Address Area must be clear of all backgrounds, images, artwork or text.

!!! INCORRECT:

Visual showing an incorrectly built Plus One with imprinting product. Notice that the disclaimer is extending into the Imprinting Area. This does not meet Valpak guidelines for a Plus One Imprinting product.

CORRECT:

Visual showing a correctly built Plus One with imprinting product. Only the background is extending into the Bleed Area, and all the important layout elements are completely within the Live Image Area. The Imprinting Area and Address Area are also clear of all backgrounds, images, artwork or text.
