Hi! I am going to make a rounded corner Business Card with Illustrator. But how can I round it's corner where it's background appears till the bleed mark? And also how to apply mock up as rounded corner?

Try selecting the background, then Object>Path>Offset Path... then type 0.125 inches (or 3mm). Is that what you are looking for?

Do you mean those Photoshop mockups?

Another thing to remember

When making this check with the the print company you may need to submit the card with normal corners and the print company themselves cut the card with rounded corners. It is ALWAYS important to check print specs from the print comapny

Sorry this process makes my bleed rounded. But not the bleed, I want to round the corner that will remain till the last after printing. Most likely this Print Templates - Sleek Rounded Corner Business Card | GraphicRiver .
And mock up also with PS. Thank you for reply.

I think there is an special thing which will bear the command to cut this card with rounded corners. If not then only say how to extract my card from bleed which can I use to aply mock up.

So you want to create mockup and your question is NOT about the actual printing....

One method is to use the square rounded marquee shape on the bleed, click on inverse under "select " menu and click delete you should then have a the shape you want with full bleed

Or am I still not understanding what your question is?

On illustrator there's a "rounded rectangle tool" select it and double click on the canvas, a window appears and you can input the size you want and the radius of the corners, you can import the rectangle to photoshop and mask your card design

Yes. I am following this process. After mocking up my card I release the mask. Thank you for a helpful mind

Its the same process for having just one sided corner or two sided corners as well.

P.S: Use pathfinder
