Our business cards are available in 3.5” x 2” (Horizontal) or 2” x 3.5” (Vertical).
You can choose to add 1/4“ rounded corners for a card that is slightly different from the standard.
When choosing a template or creating your own design, make sure to include a “bleed area”, which is additional space for images, or design elements that extend beyond the edges of the final size, so you can avoid having white edges on your finished product.
Here are sizes based on various measurements:
Business card size in inches: 3.5" x 2"
Business card size in cm/mm: 85 x 55 mm
Business card size in Photoshop: 1050 x 600 pixels
Our business cards are measured in “points”. The higher the number of points (pts), the heavier weight of the card.
Our business cards come in range of thicknesses, from 13pt and up. Specialty cards that have a lamination (ie. Soft Touch, Silk Laminated) have an additional layer of thickness, resulting in a thickness of 18pts.
Suede business cards start with printing on our 16pt matte stock, and then laminated with a soft touch (suede) lamination. The suede lamination will create more of a dull finish, and some brighter colours will naturally become more muted. We recommend increasing the brightness of your colours as much as possible to increase the contrast in the finished product.
