How you use the GP Templates

You can find all templates for our products this springdropbox.

Submit files

We offer our own designed printing on some of our products. Either you upload the files directly when you order the product. Or you send it in to us in any way you choose. The easiest way is then via a dropbox link or some form of file transmitter such as sprend or wetransfer.


Make sure you remove the template before sending us the files and do not resize the files.

If you are not sure if you have done it right, you can always send us samples and we can check them for you. You can also email us with questions when you design your components. Of course, we want you to get the best products possible and that you are satisfied!

Files that do not follow the templates take longer for us to process and may result in an inferior final product. We can help you edit these for a fee depending on the number and size of the files.

It is important that you follow the instructions to get the best results!

Remove the template before submitting the files!

Prepare the files

Make sure all lines and colors from the template are gone when you save the files. Save the files in the same size as the templates and also make sure they are in 300 dpi. Higher dpi is unnecessary and takes more space to manage.


We accept pdf or png files. If you have several different files, please sort them into folders and name them according to what kind of product you want it to be.

  • If you are going to have several copies of a product, you can write the number in the name of the folder. example:


Poker cards 300gsm x4


Then we interpret it as you want four decks of the cards in the folder.

  • If you have duplicates of a card, you send as many cards of the type you want. This is to make it easier for us and to minimize the risk of the wrong number being made.

Example: how you name the files

Deck with different backs:






Decks where all cards have the same back, the back must be first or last in the list:

Basic terms

Cutting line (red)

The red line shows the outer boundary of the component. That is where the cut will take place in theory. In practice, however, the cut does not always come exactly on the line. Since the cut rarely happens precisely, a lunge is needed, see below.

Big line (black)

Big lines show where it will fold, illustrated with black lines. (Not included in the illustration to the right). As a rule, it is good not to have any important information near the big line, for example. putting a text right in the Big line is a bad idea.

Safe zone/surface (blue)

The blue surface of the template shows where it is safe to have important information and graphics. What is inside the blue area is guaranteed to be included on the component when printed.

Background (yellow)

The yellow area shows where it is appropriate to fill in with a background color or graphic. Notice that the yellow area is on both sides of the cut line. Make sure to fill in the entire yellow area with the graphics you want.


Outcome, bleed in English, means that you make the graphics so that it spills over to the other side of the cutting line. If you have no fallout but only white on the other side of the cutting line, your cards and components will have at least one white surface on one of the edges when they are cut.


The margin is the background (yellow) inside the cut line. It is the yellow area between the cut line and and the safe zone (blue). This surface is also needed as the cutting does not take place exactly where it says it will take place.

Avoid frames

Frames can be nice but can make the component look crooked as the cut very rarely happens exactly where it says. The narrower the frame, the more crooked the component risks looking.


If you want a frame on the component, make sure you make it strong.

Most people sit with brighter screens in relation to the printer's settings.


Therefore, it is important to keep this in mind when choosing colors. The colors are usually a little darker than what the screen shows.


Remember to make the contrasts between the colors clear for best results.

Make sure important text is easy to read. Therefore, avoid any too squiggly font.


Also make sure that the text contrasts well with the background so that it stands out. Bright colors, such as yellow, are therefore bad against white or other light backgrounds.
