Different business card sizes

Standard

The old favourite, the standard business card, is the same size as a credit card at 85 x 55mm, designed to slot easily into your purse or wallet. Standard size business cards are a long-established and popular choice, fulfilling the needs of most business types. Printed on 400gsm silk, this traditional style comes with the option to print either single or double-sided and is an affordable solution to help you confidently connect with your customers. If you want your own take on a traditional look, opt for a gloss or matt laminated finish and choose rounded corners to add that stand-out touch.

Mini

Capture the attention of your customers with an ultra-modern mini business card. A great eco-conscious choice, this half size alternative to standard size business cards delivers just as much punch but still with plenty of space to get your message across. A mini business card’s dimensions are a quaint 85 x 25mm, but with the use of clever design, you can make every millimetre count. Create eye-catching visuals to make your design pop or simply boost your artwork with one of our wide range of finishes, including textured tweed or a stunning iridescent metallic effect.

Square

Business cards just got cool and contemporary in an elegant square style. A break away from the norm, this distinctive and sophisticated take on the traditional business card will help you stand out against the competition. Take the opportunity to do something striking with your design and make your unique square business card a conversation-starter. At 55 x 55mm, it reflects the modern world of Instagram and is designed to deliver an impact. Consider on-trend recycled uncoated papers such as brown kraft or choose a spot UV laminated finish to draw attention to key elements.

American

Make an impact at your next event by choosing an American business card to share your company credentials. The US business card is sized at 89 x 51mm making it a handy wallet-sized card for easy networking. With plenty of room to display your company logo and contact details, it’s perfectly designed to keep you in the forefront of customers’ minds. Raise your card to a new level with a portrait style design and luxury quality thick stock to make that first impression count.

Long

Stand out among the competition with a long business card sized at 90 x 55mm. Slightly oversized compared to a standard business card, this option will make an impact while still delivering the feel of a traditional style. Maximise the amount of information you want to share with double-sided printing and deliver an impressive introduction with bold visuals and a crisp, sleek design. Matt, gloss or soft-touch velvet lamination are great for enhancing colour and adding durability, plus the tactile finish will let your prospects know that you mean business.  

Rounded corner

For a stand-out touch, choose rounded corner business cards. Modern and memorable, this type is the same size as a standard business card at 85 x 55mm but differs with its softer look. Available in various paper types, including silk, textured tweed and brown kraft, it gives you the perfect opportunity to play with the design and get creative.
