Where is my order?
depending on what exactly you ordered, the time frame required to receive your order takes anywhere from 2-7 business days. If you have questions, you can always send us an email.
What paper stock do you print on?
Our Business Cards are printed on 14-point glossy card stock with UV coating on the color side(s).
Postcards and door hangers are also available in either 14-point glossy stock or 12-point glossy card stock with optional UV coating.
Other products are available in 100# gloss text paper stock with overall aqueous coating on both sides.
What kind of press do you use?
For most jobs we use a Komori Lithrone 5-color sheet fed press with inline Aqueous coater and infra red drying.
Wet ink takes hours to dry.
Printers without inline coating and drying have to wait for the ink to fully dry before the job gets turned over and printed on the second side.
The benefit of 640MediaSolutions.com inline AQ coating process means faster turn times and higher quality for our customers.
While our competitors are waiting for the ink to dry, we’ve already trimmed, folder and shipped most of our customer’s orders.
What kind of inks do you use?

When preparing press-ready digital files, what size should I build my file to?
Please build your press-ready digital files to either the trim size (if it does not bleed) or to the bleed size (by adding 1/16″‘ beyond the trim on each edge).
Can I put a border on my card?
You can have a border around the edge of your card, but for best results, we recommend that you allow a minimum of 1/8″ from border to edge of card.
Also, keep in mind that we cannot guarantee perfectly even margins on all sides.
Due to slight variances in either press or cutting equipment, some borders may appear unequal.
For best appearance you may want eliminate borders or use wide ones that bleed.
What is the required bleed?
Our bleed is 0.0625″ or 1/16′. All products available are listed at their trim size.
You should build your document to allow 1/6″ beyond the trim on each edge.
Example: A job with a trim size of 8-1/2″x11″ with bleeds would need a document size of 8-5/8″x11-1/8″.
What if my cards don’t bleed?
We require ALL files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size.
We automatically trim 0.1″ or 0.125″ off of each edge, which will result in the desired trim size.
How do I prepare files for trim?
Simply add 0.0625” (or 1/16”) to each edge of document.
Example: a 4”x6” would have a bleed size of 4.125”x6.125”.
