Cotton Business Cards


Go Natural with Cotton Business Cards


Card stock may be the base material of business cards but did you know that you can actually have them made to have the look and feel of fabrics like suede, linen, silk, and cotton? These are considered soft touch business cards because they do feel soft to the touch. What makes them fabric-like is the application of a special coating, or the lamination process used as finishing. Whichever industry it is that your business is in, you must consider going with natural-looking cotton business cards.

Merging Print with Digital Advertising through Business Cards

Before going deeper into the benefits of cotton business cards, let us first take a quick look at why it still pays to print business cards. Since everything is digital these days, why should you even bother printing out these 3.5” x 2” cards which only contain your contact information, and perhaps a short marketing tagline?

First, there are still old school customers out there who prefer something tangible when doing business with you. If you’re in the legal industry, for example, handing over simple business cards to potential clients would legitimize your practice in their eyes. One glimpse at the card will give them an idea about your specialization, where your office is located, how you can be contacted over the phone, etc. It will be so much better if you will keep the back of the card blank because they can scribble notes in it. Once they look up their stack of cards in case they need legal services in the future, there will be a note at the back of the card which will trigger memory of your interaction.

Second, business cards should be part of your overall print marketing campaign. If you already have a business logo, you should make sure that your business cards have the same logo incorporated in the design. The same thing holds true for all your other print marketing materials: brochures, letterheads, flyers, postcards, posters, notepads, etc.

Third, you can use printed promotional materials alongside an interactive digital marketing campaign. This way, you can target both tech-savvy and old school customers. If you’re ordering uncoated business cards, you can print your contact information in front and a QR code at the back. When scanned, the QR code can lead the user to your website, or give them a discount code that they can use when purchasing your products or services.

Whether your customer is old school or tech-savvy, handing out a piece of business card helps them remember your brand name more distinctly. Aside from easy recall, there is just that touch of human connection associated with handing out business cards which is why it’s still an in thing these days – despite everything going digital. Another good thing about keeping business cards is that they can be scanned and stored digitally, so there really is a merging between the traditional and the digital.

Cotton Business Cards: Minimalist & Cost-Effective

If you are looking for business cards to print, there are many options available for you. Uncoated business cards can be printed at really cost-effective rates. If you want to add that extra oomph to your brand, go for extreme gloss, foil stamped, metallic ink, ultra-thick or spot UV gloss cards. For something that sets you apart from the rest, rounded corner business cards are a great option. Soft touch cards are ones laminated to mimic the feel of fabrics like cotton, silk, suede, and linen.

If you only want simple business cards that will plainly but effectively sell your brand, go for cotton business cards. Here are some of the reasons why it pays to go with this option: 

  • Cotton business  cards are minimalist yet classy.

For most business owners, plain and simple is the way to go. But just because a design is plain and simple doesn’t mean that it has to look boring or inelegant. When you go for cotton plain business cards, the material used is a blend of paper and cotton. The combination of material makes the card look balanced and elegant. The texture also makes the look a bit more distinct than smoother cardboard business cards. 

  • They are a cost-effective printing option.

Since there is no extra laminating material used, uncoated business cards are probably the most cost-effective option. Still, make sure that the sharpness of the print is good so that the card will not look cheap.

  • They are thick enough to be considered luxury business cards.

For uncoated business cards to look premium, make sure that to choose a thick-enough paper stock. An above average 18-pt. thickness should be good enough. When combined with the uncoated natural cotton and paper blend, even a seemingly plain-looking design will look ultra classy and expensive.

Simple Business Cards Printing Tips

Next, how can you look for the best printing company to create high-quality uncoated business cards for you? Here are some of the questions that you need to ask:

  • How long have you been in business?

Go online and look for printing companies that specialize in creating simple business cards. One factor that you should consider in the selection process is the length of time that the company has been in business. The more experience they have, the better their quality of service usually is. Also check on client testimonials to see how they fare when it comes to offering good quality customer service.

  • What printing process do you use?

Since plain business cards do not require special lamination, digital printing companies might do a good job of printing cotton business cards. But you still need to check if they do deliver sharp prints and if they pay close attention to details, especially considering the fact that you have very limited space to work with when it comes to business cards.

If you want professional-looking results, however, go with companies that use the offset printing method. For this, they will utilize huge printing presses for simple business cards that have a cotton or uncoated finish. Offset printing delivers sharper colours, and once the printing process is set, the machine can churn out dozens, hundreds or even thousands of prints quickly and with smooth precision. 

  • Can I see samples of your work?

Whether you’re ordering uncoated business cards or ones with a more complex business process like foil stamping or silk laminate, always ask if you can see samples of their work. Most printing companies should be able to send you samples in the mail but for others, you would need to place a minimum order before you can get your hands on the actual card.

  • Can you help me design my business card?

One way that printing companies set their businesses apart from their direct competitors is by offering additional tools. For instance, you can go for a DIY or do-it-yourself method of designing a business card. You will save a lot of money designing simple business cards this way because you don’t need to hire the services of a professional graphic designer. You can either use the downloadable business card templates or use an online design tool. Before doing so, make sure that you have a solid design for the logo that you can use in all your printed promotional materials.

  • What if I make mistakes in the design? Can you help me fix art issues?

This is another way of offering good customer service. Even if you are just ordering 100 pieces of plain business cards, a good printing company should be able to help you fix art issues for tree – especially minor ones.

  • What is the price for the minimum order?

The minimum order for most companies is 100 pieces. However, if you need just a small number of cotton business cards, digital printing companies might be able to offer you good deals since digital printing is suitable for small batches. For offset printing, the more simple business cards you order, the lower the per piece price would be.

  • What is the order process like?

Some printing companies have a fully online ordering process. You can select the product, size, quantity, print options (whether you want to use the back or not), and other features like paper type and rounded corners. If you are uploading the design yourself, you also have the option to have a designer examine the file and fix any issues that may come up. This is highly recommended, especially if you did not have a professional graphic designer lay out the card for you.

  • How long can I get my hands on a batch of plain business cards?

Depending on the type, volume, and finish of the business cards, you can select from different printing speeds. For an additional fee, you can have the order rushed and wait for the cards to be delivered to your address within 24 hours. The most popular options are 3 to 5 or 5 to 7 business days. If you’re in no rush, go for the 7 to 10 business days option to give the printing company plenty of time to go over the design of your card.

What Else Do I Need to Know when Printing Cotton Business Cards?

Whether it’s plain business cards or laminated business cards that you decide to go with, it is important to distribute them properly. Remember that print advertising materials must be distributed to your target audience. Even if they are made from ultra-thick cards, they will not leave a lasting impression to your customers if they do not leave your office desk.

As such, it’s important to bring along with you a stack of business cards when going out. You might run into a possible client or prospective customer. Handing over a thick, elegantly designed business card will make you leave a lasting impression.

You can also include business cards in client or supplier receipts. If you have a physical store, leave a stack of business cards near the cashier or counter for customers to collect and give out to their friends and family. If you are participating in trade shows, you should definitely bring a good amount of business cards for distribution.

Make sure that the information is accurate and updated. If you must include photos or illustrations in the design of the card, make sure that its overall design does not look too crowded against the very small space. Pay attention to details. Again, you have a very small space to work with so you need to make sure that there are no spelling errors. Choose a font style and size that works well with the size of the card.

The US standard size is 3.5” x 2”, but you can go for European, square, or slim skinny. Square business cards measure 2.5” on all sides, European cards measure 2.125” x 3.375”, while slim skinny business cards measure 1.75” x 3.5”. Another way for you to stand out is by using the portrait instead of the landscape orientation. Just make sure that the overall design of the portrait-oriented business card does not distract from the image that you are trying to create for your brand.

All in all, cotton business cards are an elegant printed promotional material. They may look plain and uninteresting from afar but upon closer look, you will see just how elegant and classy the minimalist card actually is. Giving out these cards will make customers equate the classiness of your card with the quality of products or services that you are offering as a brand.


How to Pick The Right Paper Feature
Our lead setup technician of 14 years, Angela Moskal, speaks on picking the right paper features. Hint: Raised spot uv gloss on suede material.


ANGELA MOSKAL: Hey guys! I am so delighted to help you with picking the best paper finish. As a designer myself, i often go back and forth on paper features such as gold foil, spot uv or rounded corners. My go-to always is the raised spot uv on the soft touch suede 19pt business cards. It is simply perfect for anyone looking to impress.


• GOLD FOIL STAMPED BUSINESS CARDS (the ultimate wow card): I absolutely LOVE the look of our gold foil stamped business cards - offered on our 17pt silk laminated business cards, 19pt soft touch business cards and our 32pt business cards. Nothing impresses more than gold. May it be on jewelry, watches, business cards or any luxurious trimmings. Like all things in life, the time and place has to call for it. Gold has inspired civilizations for thousands of years, stemming back to Ancient Greece and Egypt. For business cards, the industry you are in has to call for it. It has to represent you and must be done tastefully. An all-black or all-white business cards with minimal gold foil in areas such as your name or web address whispers elegance. If you are looking to dominate an image, gold foil stamped business cards will get compliments 10 out of 10 times. You cannot ever go wrong with it but your company theme and your personality must support it. Flat foil stamping is available for our 17pt silk laminated business cards and our 32pt business cards. We also have a raised gold foil business cards on our 19pt soft touch business cards which is my personal favorite. The perfect feature that applies to all industries is the raised spot uv gloss which i discuss next. Our foil stamping also comes in many other colors such as red foil, blue foil, copper foil, or silver foil.

• SPOT UV GLOSS BUSINESS CARDS (the perfect all-around feature for all industries): There is the flat spot uv gloss and the raised spot gloss effect that we offer. The raised spot gloss is a feature that allows you to add gloss only to desired areas in a heightened feel, such as a logo outline while leaving the rest of the card a natural matte finish. The flat spot uv gloss is the same effect but without the added height to the gloss. The names self describe them. Many clients do not want much flash on their card and the absolute best business card feature to always go with is the spot uv gloss. It adds a major wow effect without going overboard. It makes your logos pop much nicer. The flat spot uv is very neat but the raised spot gloss business cards are in a class of their own. You will always get the best compliments on raised gloss no matter your industry. Raised spot gloss is available on our soft touch business cards, also known as suede business cards.

• ROUNDED CORNER BUSINESS CARDS: Rounded business cards have been around forever and are very popular among clients that want to show a more playful side without getting into complex features such as gold, silver, spot uv or metallic inks. You can say it is the easiest and simplest feature to a business card. The rounded edge business cards are available for most of our paper finishes such as our 14pt, 16pt, 17pt, and 19pt card stocks.

• THE PERFECT BUSINESS CARD FEATURE (for all above average occasions): If I was going with just one feature it would no doubt be the raised spot uv on the soft touch business cards that have the 19pt thickness. I have yet to hear a client say they do not like them. Many call them the best business cards they have ever printed or felt. Pairing both soft touch suede and raised gloss makes it subtle but ultra-unique to the fingertips. You have to try it to appreciate it. Even clients who had no interested in anything impressive end up sticking with it on all their reprints. It does not disappoint!

I hope i have helped share some of my insight and experience on my personal favorite, our staff's favorites and our client favorites which universally seems to be our soft touch suede with option raised spot uv gloss.

Dream big,

Angela Moskal



How to Design The Perfect Business Card
Our lead graphic designer of 11 years, Michael Parker, speaks on picking the perfect design. Hint: Perfection is what represents you!


MICHAEL PARKER: My dear friends! A pleasure to share my lifes work with you. I have designed for clients such as NASA, Lego Toys, Whole Foods, Arm & Hammer and Warner Brothers Studios to share a few of my projects.


• BEST COLORS TO USE: Colors undoubtedly play a big role in human psychology. Red says urgency, blue says safe and calm, black purs luxury, shades of green speak peacefully, orange and yellows are friendly and optimistic while gray says balance and neutrality. The colors to choose depend on the emotion to wish to evoke. Restaurant owners should always stick to black, reds, and yellows as those are warm colors that tie into food. A banker or real estate agent tends to do well with blues or greens. If you are in a creative or fun line of work, you can incorporate any color that you personally desire. There is no right or wrong, purely preference but if you are looking to add color to business cards that you wish to be safe with, it is best to follow the color emotion rules that are proven in psychology that i share above. Muted colors show a calmer tone to your business. Neon colors show excitement. If you are in any professional business the colors you choose also fall into the personality of your business. What i like to do when designing the perfect business cards is i create 2-3 very different versions and i ask the opinion of 10 people. I ask them how they feel or percieve the business based on the look. I like to stay nuetral to my work and not fall in love with it so asking others for their option in the end will be the ultimate guide to knowing if you have chosen the perfect colors.

• HOW BIG TEXT SIZE SHOULD BE: TThere is no right or wrong text size but there is certainly the rule of never going below the 11pt size. Big text can always be seen as fun or creative but very small text can be frustrating and be seen as poor design work. Small text is certainly creative and modern. Small text is subtle but too small of text is a failed attempt at a modern look. The perfect font size for people of all ages, young or mature is around 12pt. If you wish to get creative you can always pair a large font at around 22pt but you should always stick to no more than 2 font suizes in one design. If you have 7 lines of text and all 7 have different sizes your business cards can look very cluttered.

• WHAT CRUCIAL INFO SHOULD BE PRESENT: All contact method of your choice shall be added on there. If you do not wish to have clients call you at random hours of the day, its best to leave operation hours or an email only. Some of our clients leave just a web address as they want to drive traffic to their site and not to a phone rep. One thing for certain is you should always add your logo, the rest is purly up to you and how you wish to operate your business contacts.

• WHEN TO ADD PHOTOS: Real estate agents and sales agents tend to always add photos of themselves to their color business cards as the service provided is branded to them personally. Photographers also add a landscape photo to their business card printing. Rarely ever does a photograph belong on a professional business card but if you choose to add a photograph it is always best to add it to only one side.

• OVERALL PERFECTION: The perfect business card feedback i receive from clients is always one with neatly organized text that is minimal in colors (2 colors max). The best business cards tend to be simple, minimalistic but with add on features such as spot uv gloss or enhanced paper such as silk laminated business cards or soft touch business cards with suede laminate. A simple business card design can become many times more impressive just by boosting the paper thickness and feel.

In all my years of designing business cards, i have found one thing that works best - when in doubt, keep it simple and go with a nicer paper.

To be creative is to be truly alive,

Michael Parker
