Everything about the
Standard Business Card Size

What is the standard size for business cards?

In many cases, a standard business card in the United Kingdom measures 88 x 55 mm. Business cards are a way for you to expand your network, which can open up more business opportunities for you. With the advent of digital communication, business cards have improved, showcasing eye-catching design and content.

Dimensions in Centimeters: 8.5 x 5.5 cm
Dimensions in Inches: 3.35 x 2.17 in

When should I use standard business cards?

Most standard business cards are used to connect to other businesses. Make sure to include the company you represent or work for so your business card’s recipient knows who you are affiliated with. You can also include your e-mail address and phone number so they can get in touch with you easily for potential business transactions.

A vital role of business cards is to offer an easy way to share contact information with someone such as a client, prospect, or potential business partner. For example, you can give your business card to a prospect which your potential client can use for future communications. Handing out business cards is also much easier than writing down your contact information on a piece of paper.

Additionally, presenting your business card to a prospect gives an impression of professionalism, which can boost your and your brand’s image. For instance, we have standard business cards available in different kinds of paper type and finish. We have our classic bestseller 400 gsm silk, matt laminated 400 gsm, uncoated writable bright white 340 gsm, gloss 400 gsm, and finally, our 400 gsm velvet touch lamination. With these features, you can certainly be sure to make a good impression on your prospects.

If you are not looking for anything too fancy and just want a simple and yet reliable way to network, then you can never go wrong using standard business cards.

Printing tips for standard business cards

For your standard business card to have a high-quality image, set the resolution to 85 x 55 at 300 dpi. It is also vital to add bleed to ensure your product does not end up with undesirable white borders. You can also use InDesign’s bleed function conveniently. When using Photoshop, however, you need to add the bleed manually. You also have the option to use our free templates on the product page of the product you are ordering.

Great work and faster than said

Fantastic prices, quality and service SS 18.09.2020

Ordered three large 80 x 60 prints on Forex. Service was brilliant from the start when I wasn't happy with their digital proof for one of my images. They adjusted it and reuploaded the proof and went even further to show me comparisons in Adobe Print Inspector for the colour values between my original image and their digital proof. Given a delivery date for a week later, prints turned up within three days which was a nice surprise. The quality of the prints was great. Really happy with everything.
