You’re looking for a company that specializes in suede business card printing but you have no idea where to start. Which steps are you supposed to take? How can you make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth? How can you ensure that you are on your way towards having an effective print marketing campaign? It all boils down to the printing company that you will choose.
There are many digital printing companies out there that use desktop printers but if you want to have a batch of premium business cards printed out, it’s better to go for offset printing. These make use of huge Heidelberg printing presses which produce high-quality prints that will impress the heck out of your customers. It may cost a bit more, but the investment is well worth it in the end.
Should You Go for Standard or Non-Traditional Sized Business Cards?
Next, which size should you go for when printing suede or silk business cards? Should you go for standard-sized ones or one that are a bit non-traditional? First, here are your options:
- 5” x 2”
If you already have a stack of business cards, you will notice that majority are sized 3.5’ x 2” – with landscape orientation. If you want to stick to the standard, you can have silk or suede business cards printed out with these sizes. But you can make them stand out by ordering for a round-edged set, or designing cards with a portrait instead of a landscape orientation.
- 375” x 2.125”
In Europe, business cards are a bit larger than standard-sized cards. If you’re running your business in this part of the world, you might want to consider having a set printed out in this size.
- 2” x 2” or 2.5” x 2.5”
Another way to make your business cards stand out is by going for square business cards, which measure either two or two and a half inches on all sides. If your business is on the creative side, this is an excellent choice.
- 5” x 3.5” or 1.75” x 3.5”
There are also mini business cards which are a lot smaller than the standard-sized cards. When going for these sizes, however, keep in mind that you will have an even smaller space to work with – and you don’t want to overcrowd the card with too much information. At most, you can indicate your business name and contact number – there might not be enough space for your address and a marketing tagline, unless you decide to also use the back.
Although standard sized cards are always popular, it’s good to know that there are other sizes available for those who want to make their business stand out.
