Greeting cards are printed in various standard sizes. These are the most popular sizes:
A6 greeting cards are 148mm x 105mm when folded. They are available in portrait or landscape format and may also be produced as 'Tent' Format in landscape style. This is approx 6" x 4" in inches. A6 greeting cards are convenient small size greeting cards at low cost. | See A6 Satin finish greeting card prices | See A6 Gloss finish greeting card prices |
Larger square greeting cards are becoming increasingly popular and our 150mm square greeting cards are a very attractive size. They are only available in landscape format. 150mm square greeting cards are approximately 6 inches square. | See Satin finish 150mm square greeting card prices | See Gloss finish 150mm square greeting card prices |
5" x 7" greeting cards are a standard size and are still very popular. They are available in portrait or landscape format. The cards are 127mm x 178mm when folded. | See Satin finish 5 x 7 greeting card prices | See Gloss finish 5 x 7 greeting card prices |
DL size greeting cards are 99mm high x 210mm wide. They suit wide "landscape" style subjects and are not suitable for every design. The cards are roughly 4" high x 8.25" wide.
DL greeting cards are only available in landscape format (like a letterbox) and often only suit very wide images, such as landscapes and seascapes. | See Satin finish DL greeting card prices| See Gloss finish greeting card prices |
Not all greeting card sizes will suit every design. Square cards are naturally more suited to square images, whether they are photographs or paintings. A6 and A5 cards are the same ratio as each other, which is the same as A4. A6, A5 and 5 x 7 cards can all be printed as Landscape or Portrait formats, although we do not recommend 'tent' format for these cards as they tend to slump down on the mantlepiece.

People usually only buy greeting cards in ones or twos. For this reason most people are not especially price-conscious, so will not mind paying £2.49 or even £2.99 for a greeting card that takes their fancy.When you start off it is easy to introduce your ranges to local gift shops, garages and garden centres who are always looking for new design. As you get larger you may want to sell your greeting cards in other areas of the country, so this is where you may consider employing one or more sales agents. Agents work on a self-emplyed basis and usually receive 10-15% commission on the wholesale price of the cards.See Satin Prices See Gloss Prices
