What is your refund, exchange or reprint policy?
If you are not satisfied with your business cards due to flaws, bad workmanship, or any other problem with the printing process, your business card products will be re-printed at no additional charge.
Of course, we cannot be held responsible in the event of human errors such as spelling, misalignments, or inaccurate information printed on your products. We ask that you double check your designs for these common errors before ordering.
Please note that we require all the colors in your files to be of the CMYK variety, as spot / pantone colors could produce unexpected results. Additionally, certain colors may appear slightly different in print compared to on-screen, and the same color may not come out 100% the same every time it is printed. These are industry-accepted standards and therefore any color issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
What forms of payments are accepted and how do I pay?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover credit cards are accepted as well as PayPal. No checks, cashier’s checks, or money orders are accepted at this time. All business card orders must be paid in full before production can begin.

What type of printing process do you use?
Most of our business card products are printed and cut by the highest quality Heidelberg printing presses using a ” 4 color” aka “CMYK” printing process with full bleed. The four color process is an industry standard whose results can be seen at any news or magazine stand. During this procedure, small dots of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black are printed on the paper in a precise fashion forming a full spectrum of colors. The end result is high quality, photo realistic printing at an affordable price. We also print in spot color (e.g., if you specify a particular Pantone color) or using digital presses when needed.
What does the term CMYK mean?
NexCards.com utilizes high quality Heidelberg CMYK printing presses. CMYK is an industry standard printing process that refers to the printing inks used in 4-color process printing:
“C” = Cyan
“M” = Magenta
“Y” = Yellow
“K” = Black
These are the only four colors used to produce full-color photographs and designs. These colors can be combined in various percentages to emulate a wide number of other colors. If you look carefully at a printed color photograph in any magazine or book, you’ll see that it’s made up of rows of tiny dots of each of the four colors called a halftone screen. The dots work together, at different angles, to fool your eye into seeing a full spectrum of colors.
The mixture of ideal CMYK colors is subtractive (cyan, magenta, and yellow printed together on white result in black). CMYK works through light absorption. The colors that are seen are from the part of light that is not absorbed. In CMYK, magenta plus yellow produces red, magenta plus cyan makes blue and cyan plus yellow generates green.
For a graphics file to be printed correctly in a CMYK printing environment, it must be created and printed in that color mode. That is why we require all colors in customer files to be CMYK (i.e., no spot or pantone colors). Pantone colors may not print as expected in a CMYK printing environment.
Customers uploading their own design files are responsible for ensuring that all colors in their files are CMYK, as we are often not able to determine the specific color-mode on our end. We cannot be held responsible for color shifts resulting from the inclusion of pantone colors in customer files.
What is full bleed and do you use it?
Full bleed is printing from edge to edge. This may cost extra depending on your printing for other printers. All our business cards are printed in full bleed. Full bleed ensures that ink covers the entire area of the final product. In this process the image is printed larger than normal. After printing is complete, the excess area is trimmed away. This area is about 1/16th of an inch from the edges.
What does Spot UV treatment do for business cards?
Spot UV is just an exact spot where you would like your printed piece to have an area of Ultra-Violet Coating. Creating a piece with Spot UV will enhance your marketing piece immensely. So that we can better your service we recommend that you send us your files flattened and with an extra file which graphically displays where the SPOT UV will be in black and white where it will have gloss as shown in Figure 1 and 2
This service comes standard with our Luxury Business Cards and Spot UV Business Cards.
