Business Cards

Here at, we understand the importance of standing out from the crowd. Often, our business cards play a key role in our initial introductions, so it’s crucial that they grab people’s attention and leave a lasting impression. With high quality printing and the option to design online, it’s never been easier to create a statement with your business cards.

So how can you create a design that stands out from the crowd? Here are three ideas to get you going…

Use a portrait design

Traditionally, business cards are designed with a landscape orientation. This is often chosen because it’s easy to space the components across the width of the card. However, easy isn’t everything. To create a design that stands out, consider designing your cards with a portrait layout. At we have stunning portrait templates, which you can use to ensure your information looks appealing and is easy to read. Then have fun watching your business contacts double-take as your card reaches the top of the pile.

Experiment with textures

Once upon a time, matt and gloss were the only options for texturing your business cards. Thankfully, those days are gone and there is now a wide range of options available to creative business owners. How about creating an embossed or Spot UV business card? Or you could catch the light with one of our reflective, foil business cards. The beauty of these textures is that not only do they look fantastic, they also feel different, making them even easier to locate amongst a pile of traditional cards.

Pick an unusual shape

Most business cards are rectangular and for a good reason – they fit nicely in the palm of your hand or inside your wallet. However, as long as your cards are the appropriate size, you can actually use any shape you choose. At, we offer bespoke designs, so your cards can take a completely unique shape. Depending on your business, recognisable shapes like a car or a house can be fun and attention-grabbing. Alternatively, add another layer of branding by using the shape of your logo.
