Rack Cards

Rack Card; a special and commonly used 4x9 marketing material that carries all the important messages of you business, service and products. If you are managing a travel agency or a tour guide, if you are priest and managing a church, if you are a sales person working in retail probably you know how the rack card can work for your business or organization. A little piece, easy to carry and the most importantly high quality; 14pt gloss cover stock with UV coated paper catches the attention and a very nice graphical design can help you to achieve your goal.

Some printing companies who claim to be professional in rack card printing, print the rack card on 80lb or 100lb cover paper which are not as thick as 14pt gloss cover paper. The UV coating gives the card more thickness as well, that’s how we do it at HikePrint.

Rack cards can be printed full color one side only, full color front and black & white back, or full color both sides. Rack cards are great marketing tools for business willing to sale more and earn more.

The available paper stocks for rack cards are:

  • 14pt gloss coated cover with UV (C2S)
  • 14pt Premium Uncoated Cover
  • 16pt Dull Cover with Matte Finish
  • Recycled 100lb Dull Cover with Matte Finish

To order Rack cards at hikeprint.com you need print ready artwork.

If you have the artwork ready just make sure it meets our requirement:

  1. Size is right (ex: 4”x9”)
  2. It includes bleed (ex: 4.1”x9.1”)
  3. It is designed in CMYK mode
  4. It has 300-350 dpi resolution
  5. It is in right format: TIF, TIFF, JPG, EPS, PNG, AI, PSD, and PDF

The required bleed for rackcard is 0.05” for each edge or 0.1 for each dimension. So the total size for rackcard with full bleed should be 4.1” x 9.1”.

If you are not sure what is this requirement you can download the right template from our template page and start designing your card or place your card into our rackcard template to make sure it’s in right size and resolution.
