You can say it all with a classic business card and it won't cost a fortune. Started a business? Gone out on your own as a consultant? Had a promotion? Classic business cards offer the easiest way to get that message out and network. Simplicity is key with marketing, even when marketing ourselves. You can connect on social platforms and go to networking events and mixers but offering a card creates an instant connection.
We offer affordable business cards in a standard size of 85mm x 55mm in quantities from 50 – 50,000
We can print these cards on a wide range of materials using creative finishes.
For details on how to set up your design files for our classic business cards see the Artwork Guide below.
Choose the card type, one side or double sided print, quantity and rounded or straight corners, place the order and upload artwork at the basket stage of the checkout process.
Standard business cards are 85mm x 55mm.
You will need to allow a 3mm bleed on all sides, and supply as a CMYK PDF with all fonts outlined or embedded and with a resolution of 300dpi.
We have templates below for creating business cards in Photoshop and Illustrator. There is also an Adobe pdf with how to set up your print ready artwork for standard business cards.
Our unbeatable range of affordable printed business cards can be printed on a variety of different card stocks, including soft touch and spot UV to offer a creative solution for every brand - even if that brand is just you.
Need it fast? Same day printing is available on our 350gsm Silk and 400gsm matt laminated cards! Simply select the Same Day option. This will only be visible on the website as an option on weekdays before 11 am. If you choose this service, we will print your business cards that day and send on a next day courier service.
Whilst these classic little business cards make a great means of introduction, we also see them printed for other uses. We have seen them go out as jewellery backing cards, as thank you notes and as save-the-date cards. The restriction on their limitations is simply how creative you want to get with them. They can make fantastic loyalty cards but you'll need to consider the paper type for these as they might need to be written on or stamped. If you want to create a mini experience for the recipient, try using a folded business card that opens up like a book. Square business cards are lovely and will physically stand out from the stack of cards in a drawer or wallet because they are a different size. Magnetic cards will ensure your message sticks and doesn't fester in a wallet anywhere.
