Centreprint create the layout and greeting card artwork for you if you wish, with no extra charge, so you only need to supply the image(s) for the front of the greeting cards. You can supply a drawing or painting (up to A4), a photograph, a digital file - anything. We have even made greeting cards from a piece of embroidery. Our studio take your image(s), add any wording to the front and the back of the card, add your website or contact details, the title of the image and any other wording that you may require. We can add your logo, a thumbnail copy of the front image - anything. Our studio then post out a hard-copy proof to you for your approval - before we print. If you are not happy then we will reproof until you are! We want you to be delighted.
Our prices assume that all the cards are printed to ONE design. If you require extra versions (i.e. 250 off each of two designs, making 500 in total or 50 off each of four designs, making 200 in total) we only charge an extra £10 (plus VAT) for each extra design. For example, 500 cards off two designs (250 off each) would only cost an extra £10 (plus VAT). This option is available on the order form after you have uploaded your images. The extra £10 for each extra design is only charged once. Future orders do not attract the surcharge.
Single-sided printing means that your design will feature on the front AND on the outside back of your greeting card. Double-sided means that your design or wording will also will feature on the inside of your greeting card, when folded, as well as the front and reverse. Most people order single sided greeting cards. These will then have your image on the front and can also carry your information on the outside back, together with your logo, your contact details and even a thumbnail of the front image if you wish - all at NO EXTRA CHARGE
All the paper and board that Centreprint buy is carefully sourced from responsibly managed forests, where at least two trees are replanted for every one that is felled. Trees for making paper are a crop, like any other crop, but grown over a longer timescale. Trees are the lungs of our planet and they absorb pollution and carbon dioxide as they grow, giving us oxygen in return. Centreprint proudly support The Woodland Trust and every time we buy paper or board we make a separate payment to the Woodland Trust Carbon Capture Scheme. This scheme spends the money raised from us and other print companies on planting woodlands in the UK, for leisure and wildlife use. These woodlands will never be felled for making paper or board and hopefully will still be being enjoyed by our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will, unless you ask us not to, include the Woodland Trust logo on your printed greeting cards to show your customers that the choice of the board used is also supporting The Woodland Trust.

"Cello" bags are commonly used throughout the greeting card trade to keep the greeting cards clean, while awaiting sale. They are no longer made from cellophane though. They are made from "glass-clear" superior polycarbonate, rather that cellophane. The "cello" bags have a peel off self-adhesive strip for sealing. Many shops insist upon the cards being packed in cello bags to avoid the stock quickly becoming unsaleable. As they are so inexpensive it makes sense to use them if you are retailing your greeting cards.
All cello bags take one folded greeting card and one envelope. Most people put the envelope inside the folded card so that the front and back of the greeting card can be seen. All greeting cards are supplied flat and creased to fold accurately.
Cello bags are available at the checkout. The prices assume that the cello bags are despatched with the printed greeting cards. A separate carriage charge will be applied if this is not the case. Prices are plus VAT.
Most people pack their own cards, but we can do it for you if you prefer. We pack one greeting card, with the free envelope into one paid for cello bag as above. This packing price is IN ADDITION to the price of the cello bags. This service adds a few days to the order time. Prices are plus VAT.
Cards may be printed just one side (i.e. the outside front and the outside back of the card) or both sides (the outside front, the outside back and either or both of the insides). Printing the inside as well as the outside costs more, naturally. However, there is no extra charge to add your imprint and website details on the back, together with your logo and a thumbnail of the front of the card if required. Many people prefer to sell cards that are blank inside and if this is the case, you may want us to print "This card is blank inside" on the outside back of the card
We do not despatch or deliver at weekends. Diamond flap envelopes are FREE with every order. GB mainland delivery is also free. We also supply crystal clear Cello bags, ideal if you wish to resell your greetings cards. Cello bags are available at the checkout. Despatch takes a little longer if we pack the cards for you.
