Business Card Print Overview

Business cards are vital

What a wealth of options there are to show your credentials! These days your business card is probably the most important piece of stationery you’ll have printed. You carry them round, you give them out, you send them out, they get passed on and the unit price each can be quite cheap. However they tell a whole story about you and your business. Are you credible? Are you reliable? What can you do?

Think about the design of your business card

The cost of printing your business cards is the same whether you have a poor design and or a great one, so do think about how much you want to spend on getting the design right. Experiment, doodle, collect other people’s cards and decide what image you want to convey and what information you want to include. How much is your card merely a signpost to point to your website, and how much should it stand alone to tell your story.

Traditional business cards or funky ones?

As well as the traditional bank card size (55mm x 85mm) and variations on that (60mm or 90mm) have you thought about something different? All types of card can by laminated (gloss or matt) and printed in any colours including metallics and fluorescents, but there is more you can do.

Folded business cards

Cards which fold e.g. 170mm wide x 55mm tall fold down to the standard size to fit people’s wallets but can convey a lot more information abut you and it shows you’ve thought about your card. Alternatively an off-centre crease (e.g. 140mm x 55mm folded to 85mm x 55m with a 55mm cover and 30mm always-visible area) can provide a nice twist on this idea.

Shaped business cards

At Fulprint we die-cut shapes and so you can have a circular business card, or one cut to almost any shape you can think of, either as a single piece or a folded (creased item). How about one with rounded corners, or an oval or diamond shape? Or one with a shape removed from its centre! The recipient will remember your card if it’s different.

Textured business cards

As well as these techniques it may be that a really nice and distinctive textured card will suit your needs best. Hammer embossed, linen finish, leather grain and, indeed 25 different embossed finishes are available is many more colours, so there’s no need to be boring! These can be simply printed or combined with cutting and creasing as described above.
