I'm hoping to find an accurate image template to use on Artscow. Everyone seems to be just winging it on choosing an image resolution, bleed amounts, etc. Has anyone actually ordered test cards to measure how their image scales, etc? I'd love to start with a template instead of just guessing.

I have a template set up in Photoshop that I use for ArtsCow. I've printed these and others many times, and never had a problem with anything getting cut off. If you stay inside the active area here, you'll be fine:



The image is at actual size, ready to be uploaded.

Here's an example with rounded edges:

You may find the templates in MPC first.
It provides you the templates with different playing cards size.

It should be same with the size in Artscow.
I ordered on MPC before, but didn't try on Artscow.
Are the service and product quality good?
