Printing Wavy Edge Cards at Home

Can you print side wave cards at home? The answer is maybe, since they do have a substantial flat edge to feed through the printer.


However, not all printing equipment is able to handle small card sizes, thick paper, and custom cut edges. As with any of our pre-cut cards (laser cut or not), we recommend ordering a sample to test print at home or to bring to your printer prior to purchasing a full pack.


If you do want to try printing side wave shape cards, we recommend the following tips:


Shaped Cards Home Printing Tips

      • Consult your printer manual to be sure it can print heavy card stock and custom sizes.
      • Set the custom paper size in your print driver prior to printing (5.5 x 4.25 for A2s, 7 x 5 for A7s)
      • Feed the cards into your printer flat (non-wavy) edge first (the 5.5 inch flat side for A2s or the 7 inch flat side for A7s)*

*Depending on your design, you may have to rotate your file for it to print correctly on your cards.
