Template Instructions For Scratch Cards

Frames in the templates indicate the different areas to follow when creating your files for print. Do not move these as bluepöle can’t be held responsible if the end result is effected by this. Please hide these before supplying your final file.

Blue box: ‘Bleed area’

When an element is meant to run to the edge of the page it should reach this frame edge.

Black frame: ‘Finished size’

This frame defines the dimensions of your card after it has been cut.

Pink Frame: ‘Quiet Zone’

This is the inner margin of your document where you should avoid placing text or logos. It is essential to provide an allowance to accommodate for slight tolerances in the finishing process. We recommend a 3mm safety margin.
