Outsmart Your Competition by Designing Silk Business Cards!


Unforgettable should be one word to describe your business card. No matter which industry it is your business is in, these 3.5” x 2” cards will say a lot about your brand and image. This is just one of the many reasons why you should opt for luxurious fancy business cards that are silk-laminated. Here, we will learn about silk lamination and find out how you can outsmart your competition by designing silk business cards.

Silk Business Cards: Luxurious & Durable

First, if you need to have business cards printed out, what options can you choose from? When it comes to finish, you can take your pick from the following:

  • Cotton
  • Cheap
  • Extreme Gloss
  • Foil Stamped
  • Linen
  • Metallic Ink
  • Pearl
  • Premium
  • Rounded Corner
  • Silk
  • Suede
  • Spot UV Gloss
  • Ultra Thick

As you can see, there are options where paper is laminated in such a way that the texture turns into linen, cotton, silk, or suede. How can such effect be achieved? When it comes to silk business cards, a special lamination process is used to achieve the fabric-like effect. Some examples of silk-laminated paper are the ultra-smooth packaging of mobile phone and other electronic gadgets. When you touch the surface of these packages, they feel smooth and silky to the touch, but they are made from paper and not wrapped in plastic. The same principle is applied in silk lamination.

Depending on the thickness of the card stock, uncoated paper is first used – which has a cardboard, rough texture. Once the silk lamination is applied onto the thick paper stock, the end result is a business card with a silky-smooth, matte finish.

Here are the distinct advantages of using silk business cards:

  • You will stand out from the competition.

Let’s say that you are in a trade show and your direct competitors are in another booth, giving out ultra-thick business cards to people milling around. Just imagine the impression that potential customers will have if you will distribute business cards made from thin paper, which looks like they came straight out of a desktop computer printer. If you want to stand out from the competition, you should definitely invest in professionally-printed silk business cards. Doing so will make your brand leave a lasting impression in the minds of your customers. This is especially true if you will do the same thing with all the other items included in your print promotional campaign. When printing postcards, brochures, flyers, banners, notepads, and letterheads – make sure that they are high-quality and has a consistent look and feel as your company logo.

  • Silk lamination enhances the look and feel of traditional business cards.

There is absolutely nothing wrong in using linen business cards – as long as the paper stock feels thick and solid to the hand. However, there is just a world of difference when you’re distributing silk laminated business cards. As compared to cardboard or linen cards, they simply feel more luxurious and expensive. The silk lamination process enhances the look and feel of the base cardboard material, so it’s a finish that you’d want to consider using for your stack of business cards.

  • The lamination process improves the durability and longevity of the business card.

On a more practical standpoint, silk lamination adds durability and longevity to traditional cardboard materials. Once the silk lamination process is applied to cardboard or thick paper stock, the extra material makes the business card more resistant to wear and tear. The smooth surface of silk-laminated cards also helps with water resistance.  Luxurious and durable, silk business cards will last you for practically a lifetime.

Add-On Features for Silk Business Cards

Next, when looking for a business card printing company, what are the factors that you need to consider? The number one thing that you need to check is the printing process that they use. Are they a digital printing company or an offset printing company? Digital printing is probably good for small printing jobs but if you need hundreds of business cards printed within the next 24 hours, for example, offset printing is the better choice. Complex lamination processes for business cards are also better handled by offset printers. Quality-wise, the results look more professional and the colours are more vivid. This is because offset printing uses state-of-the-art printing presses which are huge – and these can churn out hundreds or even thousands of printed materials in a short span of time – something that digital printers simply cannot do.

If you contacted a business cards printing company which specializes in silk laminated business cards, these are the other add-on features that you can go for: 

  • Matte Silk Business Cards

Matte silk business cards have a matte or non-shiny surface, although the silky texture of the material is retained. When choosing this option, make sure that the colours you will use will stand out on matte silk laminated paper.

  • Foil Stamped Business Cards

If you want extra-luxurious fancy business cards, go for the foil stamped option. If your logo is in an elaborate, elegant font, for example, you can ask to have the letters foil-stamped in different colors:

  • Blue
  • Red
  • Black
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Copper

Think of how impressed a customer will be when you hand over a foil stamped silk business card. This is a great option for those who are in the events planning, bridal, fashion, and similar industries.

  • Silk Spot UV Business Cards

If you have a black-and-white or a grey, silver, black or any dark colour scheme for the logo, you might want to go with the silk spot UV option. For this, a flat layer of gloss is added to a specific area of the business card. If you’re a real estate broker and you want to highlight your name, for example, a layer of gloss will be added to the box circumscribing your name. This works best if you have a dark colour theme and you want to create a contrast to still make the letters on the card pop.

  • Unique-Sized Business Cards

In the United States, the standard size of a business card is 2” x 3.5”. These can be made in plain, painted edge, or foil stamped options. But if you want to veer away from the traditional, you can go for European size business cards which measure 2.125” x 3.375” or square  business cards which measure 2.5”  all around. Those who are in the creative industry can make their business cards stand out by going for non-traditional sizes.

Deciding on the Content of Your Soft Business Cards

Whether you’re a small start-up company or have been in the business for a long time, your business card serves as your first introduction to a potential customer, client, or business partner. Business cards have very limited space, so you need to be strategic when writing the content and deciding which elements to include.

To make sure that you are maximizing the marketing potential of your business with the help of business cards, here are a few tips on how you can write the content:

  • Traditional business cards contain the business name or your name and job title; the name of the company; the office address; telephone number; and email address. These days, you don’t necessarily need to include all these. If you don’t have a brick-and-mortar store, for example, there is no need for you to include an office address. If you have a fully operational online store, you can include your website, social media accounts, and maybe a QR code which can be scanned. This code will lead your customers to your website once they use your mobile phone to read it. This is a great way of merging your digital with your print promotional campaign.
  • If you must include a marketing tagline, keep it short but memorable. Use language that customers can relate to. If you’re a law firm, for example, you won’t use terms that only millennials might know. If you have a younger clientele, you can attract them using language and marketing lingo that they are already familiar with. If you’re a business who is targeting other business owners, you have to be strategic with what language to use.
  • Lastly, include a call to action. What is your purpose in printing out the business cards in the first place? Do you want customers to visit your website? Do you want them to purchase from your online store? If you’re a boutique business, would you like them to visit your physical store? If you’re a real estate agent, do you want clients to call you so that you can gain leads and conversions?

Again, you have a very limited space to “talk” to your customers if you have a business card. As such, you need to make sure that the language used is something that they can relate to. The information should be accurate and include only what’s necessary. More importantly, let them know immediately what you have to offer as a business, which is something that you can do with the tagline printed in the front or in another area of the card.

Other Design Elements of Silk Laminated Business Cards

You do have the option to print silk laminated business cards which are one-sided or two-sided. With two-sided business cards, you will include another set of information at the back – it could be a discount code, a QR code, or information about your social media accounts like your Instagram or Facebook name, or your Twitter handle.

Should you decide to use the second page of the business card, make sure that you are not occupying the full space. The text should not look too crowded. Remember that there are people who may want to scribble notes at the back of your card but if there is no space left, they might simply forget about what you have to offer. If you are printing soft business cards which you will distribute in trade shows, you might want to leave the second page completely blank.

There are no right or wrong choices here. As long as you will use the space effectively, you can either leave the back page free or write something on it. If you must use the back page of a business card, make sure that it includes information that is beneficial to the customer. As mentioned earlier, you can print QR codes or discount codes that customers can use when purchasing something from your store.

If you have a complex set of services offered, you can use the back page to list it all down. If you have a physical store, you can print your office address and hours of operation. You can also include a longer marketing message at the back of the card. Another thing to remember when using the back page of the card is that it has to look and feel the same as the front page, so your print promotional campaign is consistent across the board. Finally, the front of the card should contain pertinent information – and don’t forget to incorporate your business logo.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can maximize the use of silk laminated business cards and enjoy its full marketing benefits for your business.

 

 
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.

PAPER FEATURES:

• 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.

GRAPHIC DESIGN TIPS AND ADVICE:

• 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
