There’s always room for improvement in the world of print, and this especially applies to business cards. Our standard range is high-calibre already, but if you really want to turn some heads, you’ll want to take a look at some of our deluxe options and finishes. Here are a few examples to get you thinking:
Textured stocks give your cards that extra impact when in your customers’ hands. Ask us about our wide range including linen, cotton, canvas, fibrous, or recycled blends. Something to suit everybody.
Raised Gloss Varnish (Scodix)
Make your cards literally stand out from the rest of your competition with our raised gloss varnish cards (referred to in the industry as Scodix). It is only suited over the top of our 450gsm premium artboard with velvet lamination. Scodix technology allows us to ‘3D print’ a layer of raised gloss varnish over your already printed/laminated cards to produce an added aesthetic or textured dimension to your cards. Endless possibilities.
Raised Metallic (Scodix)
Scodix technology can get even fancier! After the raised gloss is applied, we can add metallic colouring including silver, gold, holographic, and much more!
Spot UV is the same as Scodix but without the ‘raised’ element. You can add sleek gloss to certain sections of your card’s design while keeping them subtle. A very professional finish used across all industries.
We have a few standard templates when it comes to rounding the corners of business cards, or we can create a completely customised corner radius just for you. You can also select the amount of corners you want it applied to. Get creative with it.
Perhaps you want a hole drilled in your cards as a part of the design, or for practical reasons such as swing tags. Either way, let us know exactly your specs and we’ll get drilling.
Embossing / Debossing / Letterpress
Embossing and debossing are basically the reverse of each other. We can press a logo or design so that it protrudes outwards (embossing) or so that it is sunk below the cardstock (debossing). It can also be done on blank cardstock with no printing (blind embossing), or even with metallic foil added. Countless elegant options!
Double / Triple Layer
These are all the rage at the moment. We stack multiple layers of coloured card together to add extra weight and a strip of edge colouring. Many colour combinations to choose from.
Foiling / Edge Foiling
We can apply dozens of different foil finishes to your cards. These can be applied over the face of your cards to help elevate your design, or even to the edge of your cards for that really prestigious look.
Need something more durable? We have tonnes of options when it comes to plastic business cards. There are lots of different weights and plastic stocks to choose from, and you can also further improve your plastic cards with laminations and spot UV. Why not have your logo over a completely transparent plastic card for something truly jaw-dropping?
Perhaps you have a design that would benefit from specific shapes cut out of the physical card. We can laser cut even the smallest of details into cards to really make them stand out from the rest of the herd.
The Right Choice
Now that you’ve seen the endless possibilities in the world of business cards, it’s also important to know the limitations. Some of the options above are not compatible with each other, so it’s best to get in touch with us to see what combinations are possible.
