Whether you’ve bought business cards before, or not, our purchasing guide answers common questions and lets you know how to best put together your artwork.
Thickness & Dimensions
Our business cards can be printed on a variety of cardstock. 14 and 16 point cardstock provide durable thick business cards that are great for political campaigns.
We also offer luxury cards that can be printed on stocks as thick as 44 pt cardstock.
Finish (Matte or Glossy) & Bundling
Matte or Glossy options are both available – there is no difference in cost. Most campaigns opt for a glossy finish. Luxury finishes are also available, please contact us for more information.
We print postcards full colour double-sided.
Your artwork should ideally be delivered in a PDF with a 0.125″ bleed and crop marks. Business cards are 3.5″ by 2″ but we can print other dimensions if you’d like.
If you are unsure if your design has bleed, simply e-mail us the artwork and we will advise you. In some cases we can add bleed to a design, in others we need your graphic designer to make the adjustments.
We print the card a little larger so that when we cut it there is no white edge and the finished product is 3.5″ x 2″. Since the bleed area is going to be cut, there should be no important graphics or text in that space.
Business Cards take 1-2 business days to print on 14 & 16 point cardstock. The quantity ordered has no effect on production time. Luxury cards take 4-5 business days to produce.
We can design your campaign material for an additional cost. Please contact us to receive an estimate.
Please refer to the pricing table on the homepage for a list of cardstock and their prices.
