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.
