BUSINESS CARDS CARD STOCKS
SILK BUSINESS CARDS
Single sided or double sided, our standard silk business cards are made with a durable silk coated 400gsm weight cardstock. Substantial and smooth to the touch, our economy business card option is professional and ever popular.
UNCOATED BUSINESS CARDS
An uncoated cardstock gives a slightly softer colour hue than silk. It’s also ideal for writing on. If you’re looking for a slightly softer feeling business card with a more tactile feel, an uncoated cardstock could be the best option for you.
POPULAR SIZE & SHAPE OPTIONS
STANDARD UK BUSINESS CARDS
All business cards are the same, especially if you’re ordering online.
To ensure your card fits into a wallet, business card holder or folder, you need standard UK business card size; 85 x 55 mm.
Rounded corners have a softer look than the standard square-cut business cards. They add a touch of personality and could make a big difference when it comes to making the perfect first impression and standing out from the crowd.
Like to be different? Measuring just 26 x 85mm, these slim business cards are just less then half the height of a standard UK business card. They’re a great conversation starter when you hand them out and can be used for a variety of purposes.
FOLDED BUSINESS CARDS
Sometimes a standard size business card just isn’t enough and you need more space. Our folded business cards give you double or even triple the impact, by adding two or even three panels to your business card design.
POPULAR BUSINESS CARD FINISHES
Laminated business cards are more durable due to the additional coating on the cardstock. They also feel more upmarket than a basic card print. Gloss, matt, soft-touch & velvet lamination options are all available on our business cards, on one or both sides.
If you want a business card with decadence, foiling is a great finishing option. Foiling adds metallic shine and suggests luxury. We have a range of foil colours, with gold, silver, rose gold and copper being most popular.
Wow your customers with these business cards. Spot UV gloss adds shine and relief to specific elements of your design, which really catch the eye. Looks great on logo motifs or larger images where a small details are highlighted.
Embossing gives a premium, tactile feel to your business card. More subtle than foiling, embossing is a premium finish that indicates quality and class without the bling of foil! Works best on single-sided designs.
We’re here to help and advise you on the finishing options that will suit your business best.

Should I get a single or double-sided business card?
The next time you are handed a business card or a piece of marketing material, try and take note of what you do. We’re willing to bet you look at the front, then flip it over to see what is on the back. Us humans are naturally curious beings.
You’ll find that most of our double sided business cards are either the same cost (or only slightly more) than our single sided business cards. We can produce whatever you feel is right for your business, but we prefer not to see a side go to waste. Whether its to attract the eye, provide re-assurance or promote, if you have the space, why not use it?
Should I create my own artwork or get a designer to do it?
Maybe you’re a design whizz and can do a perfectly good job, but we highly recommend getting a graphic designer to produce your business card artwork. A business card is very often one of the first impressions you give and its therefore vital that it shows you and your business at it’s best.
We have a fabulous design team who can produce some fantastic designs no matter what your budget. Please ask for details.
What should my business card say?
Put simply, your card can say anything you want it to, but most importantly, business cards ensure your contact can reach out to you whenever they want or need to. Some businesses prefer to have comprehensive information and contact details, leaving nothing to chance. Whereas other businesses look for a more minimalistic design, directing contacts to their website. It really depends on your business and how you want people to engage with you.
How much information you include entirely depends on you. As a general rule, we’d recommend your name, your telephone numbers, your email address, your website and your social media details. Postal address details are also popular, especially if you want potential clients to visit or send physical items to you.
