Taste of Ink designed and printed tear-off cards in early 2009 and spent the rest of the year perfecting the process. In 2010, Taste of Ink opened the door for everyone to enjoy the incredible printed piece. Tear-off cards are created by combining two card stocks together with adhesive. One of the card stocks is die-cut (perforated) to allow for the tear. This marketing product is completely custom and can be upgraded with decorative color foil, spot gloss highlights, and metallic inks.

How to setup tear-off cards for print:

Tear-off card print files are divided into to parts: "card 1" (top card) and "card 2" (bottom card). You will most likely have a front print file for "card 1", a front die cut file for "card 1", a front print file for "card 2", and a back print file for "card 2". You may also have foil and/or spot gloss files for each side of "card 1" and "card 2". Please see diagram below showing the files for the "Sniff" business card.
