Description

Turn every introduction into your chance to impress with personalised business cards.

A high quality business card sets the tone for your business, not just making a great impression but creating a lasting connection too. That’s where we can help. We use only premium quality 350gsm thick card as standard. The standard size and most commonly used size in Ireland is 85mm x 55mm.

Cards can be printed portrait or landscape single sided or double sided. Select from uncoated paper or a silk or gloss coated paper . What’s the difference? Uncoated paper is more absorbent so the ink sinks in more and appears flatter; silk-coated paper has a low sheen and gloss coated paper has a high sheen.

Our high quality business cards are printed on paper grades ranging from 300gsm up to 350gsm silk. Finally, to further enhance your cards, you can choose whether to have a matt or gloss lamination finish. Matt lamination gives a soft, contemporary effect. Gloss lamination gives a higher quality shine finish than gloss card.

2 Corner options: Standard Square for a sharp and stylish look or Rounded for a smooth, fresh and modern look.
