Scratch Off Cards FAQ

What color is the scratch off?
By default, our scratch offs are silver.

Do these products work like lottery tickets?
Yes! Recipients can scratch the cards with a key or coin.

Can custom graphics be printed on top of the scratch offs?
At this time, we cannot print any graphics on top of our scratch offs. Any graphics must be placed underneath the scratch layer.

Can the prize be different on each card?
Yes, our scratch offs included variable data printing, which means each recipient can receive a different prize. You will need to submit an Excel spreadsheet designating what each prize will be and the quantity you want printed of each variable prize.

Do you offer any other sizes or shapes for scratch offs?
We currently offer 1" round, 1" square, and 2" x 1" rectangular silver scratch offs. Custom scratch offs can be made for large volume orders over 5,000 pieces. If you're looking for a custom scratch off for a quantity over 5,000, please submit a custom quote request and we will be happy to assist you.

Scratch off cards are printed on 130# gloss cover. 130# gloss cover is a heavy weight cover stock that will give your promotional cards a premium feel.

Document size: Same size as final trim size of piece

Bleed: Set your bleed to .125" on all sides

Safe Area: Set your margins to .125" and keep all important elements (logos, text, and images that do not bleed) within these margins

Scratch Area: Scratch off cards require additional space around the scratch area in order to provide a safe zone for its placement and ensure critical elements are not covered by the scratch off. Please use the following guidelines when creating your artwork:

  • 1" Square Scratch Off: 1.25" Square Safe Area
  • 1" Round Scratch Off: 1.25" Round Safe Area
  • 2" x 1" Rectangle Scratch Off: 2.25" x 1.25" Safe Area

Prize Area: To ensure your prize area is completely covered by the scratch off, you will need to size your prize area smaller than the scratch off. Please use the following guidelines when creating your artwork:

  • 1" Square Scratch Off: .75" Square Prize Area
  • 1" Round Scratch Off: .75" Round Prize Area
  • 2" x 1" Rectangle Scratch Off: 1.75" x .75" Prize Area
  • Resolution: 300 PPI for all images is strongly recommended for best print quality

    If you need any help with creating your print ready artwork, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 or email us at info@uspress.com.

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
