  • Business cards are a primary marketing tool and an essential factor in business networking. Make your first impression to a potential customer count with high quality, full color business card printing from PrintFirm.

    Our business cards are printed in full color on premium 14-point card stock with a choice of UV coating on one or both sides, or a non-UV coating that is less reflective and easier to write on. Our 14-point card stock is known for its thickness and durability. Adding UV coating provides a high gloss finish that offers protection from scratches and dirt, whereas the non-UV finish offers a flat professional appearance. We use a four-color printing system on top-notch equipment that achieves a superior result.

    Folded business cards are available for business card printing. They allow printing on all four sides. If you have more information to convey than will fit on a standard business card, the folded card is your best option. Folded cards will stand up on a desk or shelf, adding a decorative use to the networking one.

    Nano business cards are another option for business card printing. They are smaller than standard cards, measuring 3.5” X 1.25” or 2” X 2”. The unusual size will attract the attention of potential customers who might be bored with the standard card. PrintFirm can round the corners of your business cards, giving them a non-standard appearance. Two radiuses are available for the rounded corner: 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch. The smaller measurement will result in a more pointed corner.

    Need your business cards in a hurry? We have you covered. Next day turnaround is available if your design is ready to print by 10 a.m. PST.

    You can upload your own business card design to our website, choose from many pre-designed templates to reduce your design cost, or let one of our talented graphic artists design your card. Regardless of the options you choose, PrintFirm delivers high quality business cards at a reasonable price. We believe that business card printing quality is just as important as giving discounts for quantity.

    Convert RGB graphics to CMYK graphics before sending the graphic files to the business card printing company. The RGB system is additive in nature, whereas CMYK system is subtractive. Because of this, the intended colors may change during the format transition. You may need to adjust CMYK colors in order to match the intent of your original concept. Typically, reputable graphic design programs can handle this conversion without any trouble.

    When designing a business card, it’s a good idea to flatten transparences. Vector design programs like Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign can create transparency problems. Transparencies are caused by shadows and transparent objects. If a file containing transparency problems is printed, the result will probably be an unprofessional disaster. It is the designer’s responsibility to flatten transparencies and avoid this complication. If you do not feel comfortable designing the business card yourself, PrintFirm has a talented team of graphic artists that can design your card.

    Please consider PrintFirm for all your business card printing needs. We believe that quality is just as important as giving discounts for quantity.

    The following business card design tips may help to improve your business card campaign strategy.

    1. You can upload your print-ready design to PrintFirm. We recommend that you download free business card design templates from our website that include specifications such as bleed and design borders. Select the product, then the size, and finally the graphic design file format (such as PDF). Then you can initiate the download. If nobody in your organization is skilled enough at graphic design, hit the “custom design” button when you place your order. PrintFirm’s team of talented graphic artists will create a unique design.
       
    2. Avoid clutter. A crowded business card design looks unprofessional and can be tricky to read. Include plenty of whitespace (area without design or with minimal design) so that there is enough separation between artwork and text.
       
    3. Focus on contrast. Dark-colored text on a dark background is typically a bad idea because it reduces text readability. Similarly, light-colored text on a light background is rarely a wise decision.
       
    4. Proofread your business card design carefully. A small text mistake in a business card design can ruin an otherwise promising business card campaign. Ideally, multiple people should proofread the design who have a good grasp on grammar and word use. You can hire a professional editor to check your text, if desired.
  • Great for placing on a desk, folded business cards give the added advantage of increased visibility to any office visitors. Folded business cards can also be used for decorative purposes in a home or office setting. PrintFirm is here to provide you with the best folded business cards for your needs.

    Here are some design tips for folded business cards.

    1. Choose your physical options. You have the option of printing all four sides of a folded business card, or just two sides. Ideas for a four-sided business card include extra space to describe products, website information, photos of team members, and additional phone numbers or email addresses.
       
    2. Choose your design options. You can upload your own print-ready design to PrintFirm. We recommend that you download free business card templates that include info on card specifications. This will ensure that your folded business card design is as compatible with our printing equipment as possible. Select the product, then size, and finally the graphic design file type (such as PDF). If nobody in your organization is skilled at graphic design, hit the “custom design” button when you place your order. PrintFirm’s talented team of graphic artists will create a unique design for you.
       
    3. Avoid design clutter. Too much text or artwork in a small space will appear unprofessional. Add enough whitespace (area with no design or minimal design) so that the design is clean and attractive.
       
    4. Proofread your folded business card design carefully. A small text mistake can ruin an otherwise promising business card campaign. Ideally, multiple people should proofread the folded business card design who have a good grasp on grammar and word use. You can hire a professional editor to check your text, if desired.
  • If you are looking for a business card that is exotic or unusual, you are ready for mini business cards. They are smaller than standard business cards. A standard card measures 3.5” X 2”. With mini business cards at PrintFirm, you have two measurement options: 3.5” X 1.25” or 2” X 2”. You can round the corners of the card with corner radius options of 1/8” and 1/4”. Mini business cards offer a unique way to design your next batch of business cards.

    The following design tips for mini business cards should help to improve your business card strategy.

    1. You can upload your print-ready mini business card design to PrintFirm. We accept many popular graphic design file formats such as PDF, PSD, and TIF. If nobody in your organization has enough graphic design skill, hit the “custom design” button when you place your order. PrintFirm’s team of talented in-house graphic artists will create the design.
       
    2. It’s not a good idea to clutter the mini business card design. There should be enough whitespace (area without design or with minimal design) to create separation between images and text so that a design balance is achieved.
       
    3. Leave room for bleed. Offset printers such as PrintFirm require a margin of error during the card cutting process to ensure that the results have a consistent quality. This allowance for error is also known as bleed space. Extend your design about 1/8” from the mini business card design borders.
       
    4. Include all your contact info. Be certain to list your office phone extension if you have one, and any social media information that is relevant to your enterprise. If you have a business-related website, don’t forget to include the internet address.
