Business Cards

One of the biggest worries when designing a business card is 'will my card get noticed?'. The truth is, with all the competition out there, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.

That's where we come in. If you've got a design, we offer a wide range of printing options to ensure your business cards leave a stronger impression and better represent your brand. With our printing, we can make your cards stand out by the way they feel. We offer a variety of surface texture finishes that will make sure your card won't get lost in the pile of business cards.

Here are some of our favourite finishes. For the full range, see the table below.

Velvet Touch

As the name suggests, this finish feels so good, it's hard to put them down. Velvet business cards are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. They endure longer than your average business cards and they bring a touch of elegance that will reflect well on your business. The Velvet Touch is so smooth you'll want to drape yourself in it, if it were socially acceptable.

Gold Foil

For thousands of years, gold has been a symbol of wealth and downright fanciness. Why not add a bit of that elegance to your business card. Even a touch of gold foil can take your card to the next level and will be sure to catch people's eyes. 

(Also available in silver foil)

Raised Spot UV

This is the next level of style and elegance both visual and tactile. The raised effect expresses itself in different ways depending on lighting. These reflections captivate the interest of your client. It's almost difficult not to run your fingers over the raised spot. Technically, raised UV varnish is not really a ‘printing’ technique, rather a coating that is applied after the printing process. 

When used strategically over targeted areas, it is sure to attract attention and make your product pop out from the crowd.

Round Corners

Do you like standard-size business cards but still want something a little different? Try rounded corners. 

When it comes to first impressions, small details can make a big difference. Rounded corner business cards have a unique feel that sets them apart from other cards.

If you want to stand out, this is the one time to cut corners.
