Frequently Asked Questions


How quickly will I receive my business cards?
A waiting period of 5-7 days can be expected for business cards as multiple orders are required before we can go to print. Please contact us if you have a deadline in place so we can try to accommodate your needs.

Can I split my 500 business cards into 2 or more different sets?
SA Flyers specialises in printing for multiple clients at the same time in quantities of 500 so the minimum amount per design is 500.

How much would it cost to print 200 business cards?
Because the print run is shared amongst various clients the machine and plate costs are reduced which means it will be cheaper to print 500 business cards than it would cost to print 200 business cards on a private print run.

Can I have flyers printed on a different weight board?
All business cards are printed on 400gsm matt because this is the most popular choice in board for business cards.

Can you send me a sample of the business cards you print?
Due to cost and time wasting implications SA Flyers does not send sample business cards to clients. Our board weight is 400gsm matt which is a good quality, popular choice of business card board and our printer is an award winner with the South African Printing Association. SA Flyers offers a 100% money back guarantee on our print quality.

When do I pay?
Proof of payment is required in full before any work will commence. Payment by EFT is required to avoid additional banking charges.

How do you want the artwork provided?
All completed artwork must:
• have a 3mm bleed throughout
• be CMYK. Black 100K
• be saved as a PDF or JPG
• be a minimum of 300dpi
• have all text converted to paths

What is bleed?
Bleed is a printing expression that refers to the area around the design that is trimmed off, allowing the design to look as though the printing went to the edge of the paper.


What is CMYK and Black 100K
Most design programs (Photoshop, InDesign etc) have an option to design in Print/CMYK or Web/RGB. For the most accurate results design that is intended for print media should be designed in the Print/CMYK settings. The black text etc should also be set to 100%K in order to print a true black.

Can I send a design made in Publisher, Word or Excel?
These programs were not intended for print design so you will find that the colours will not look exactly the same as you see them on your screen. If you only have these programs as an option you must save the documant as a pdf - we do not accept them as .pub, .doc or .xls files as fonts and sizes change.
