Business card types

Standard

Our standard cards are the most common chosen cards. They can be coated, uncoated and laminated cards.

Spot UV

Spot UV is a premium print application that provides a shiny UV coating to a specific area of the business card. A high gloss Spot UV over a matte finish provides great contrast to make your card stand out.

Scodix

Scodix or raised UV is an eye-catching, premium print finish which delivers a raised UV look to instil a sense of quality while making a statement that you are different from the rest.
This can be raised clear (most common) or you can also choose from metal silver and gold.

Business Cards with Foiling

Foiling is a fantastic way to convey premium and quality. It is a metallic foil which is applied to the surface of the business cards to deliver a high quality, shiny metallic shade. Email us for a quote on foiled business cards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the easiest way to order the most popular business cards?

At The Print Company, we make it easy to order the most popular business cards. Simply 'Select most popular' button on the product page to auto select the most common options.

Alternatively you can do it yourself by going through the following 10 steps:

5. Stock weight - Select either '350gsm' (for matt or gloss laminated cards) or '450gsm' (for velvet or gloss laminated cards). Lamination is a thin plastic coating to protect your cards and give a nice professional finish. Matt is a smooth matt silky look and feel, whereas Velvet is similar but has a more velvety touch to it (sometimes referred to as 'Soft touch'), and gloss is a high gloss finish.
6 Printed sides - Select whether your card needs to be printed in colour or black and white and if its 1 or 2 sided printed.
7. Lamination type - Select preferred option (Matt and Velvet are the 2 most popular).
8. Laminated sides - choose if you want the cards laminated on 1 or both sides (some options may only be available for 2 sided)
9. Kinds - This is where you can have multiple card names printed, say if you had 3 employees needing cards printed, you can select 3 kinds here, if its just the 1 name, select 1 kind.
10. Quantity - how many cards do you require of each kind.

Then simply add to cart and order or email the quote if you want to decide later.
