THE BASICS

A business card’s look can be divided into four elements: Size, Colour, Finish and Stock. Additionally, you can add some optional extras (as detailed below) and customised choices of one of the elements above.

First of all, lets us explain what each of the elements of the cards means to you.

CHOOSE YOUR SIZE

Business Card Dimensions With Bleed

Standard: We offer two choices of standard sizes: 90mm x 54mm and 90mm x 55mm

The standard dimensions of a printed business card are 90mm x 54 mm. That’s the finished card size.

Many printed designs include bleed. This is a business card design that gives the impression that the printing “bleeds” off the edge of the card, rather than having white borders.

This is done by printing the cards slightly oversized. An extra 2mm of space is added to each side of the chosen size for design elements or backgrounds that extend beyond the finished edges of your card and then the card is printed and cut back to standard size.

Die-cut rounded corners:

Die-Cut Rounded Corners

A ‘Die’ (in printing) is a very thin, extremely-sharp steel blade that has a particular shape or pattern.

So, Die-Cutting is using this die to cut business cards into a non-standard shape, in this case with rounded edges.

Business cards with rounded corner have a distinctive look that is a little different to the normal cards you see. They can look more stylish and modern – a little ‘edgy’, but not on the corners!

CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR

Full Colour Front and Back

Did you know that not only does using colour make your business cards stand out, but experts say certain colours tell your customer something about you and can have an impact on them.

Think about what reaction you want your business cards to create. Do you want your potential customers to feel enthused, restful, or appreciated? Think about this small guide to colours and emotions.

Red: Picked mostly by extroverts, red is a spirited and impassioned colour. Some say it increases willingness and interest. Red on a business card can stimulate your customers and prompt them to follow you.

Pink: Pink can give a sense of caring and approval. You might pick pink for your card if your business is about making people feel considerate and supportive, such as a charity etc.

Brown: Brown often conveys feelings of convention and tidiness. On a business card brown will make a professional impact, and says you are serious and steady.

Orange: This colour is generally appreciated by those who are genuine and considerate, even though the colour, itself, has connotations of innovations and a zest for life. Orange might look good on a card for a more artistic professional.

Yellow: Yellow represents wisdom, as well as happiness. Experts say that it sharpens memory and concentration. Use this on your cards if you want to give the impression of making decision-making easier and relieving anxiety.

Green: Natures ideal place – green is equitable and secure. It is also the colour of progression and liberty. Green also has connotations of the environment and wealth.

Blue: Blue is traditional and soothing. When you want to give the impression of calm, use blue. Blue is the colour that begins communication and innovation.

White: White represents virtue and new starts. Use this colour to declutter the mind and to communicate transparency.

Black: There are times when no colour can be a relaxing thing. Black can also pique interest and boost readiness for new and exciting things to come.

Above all, pick the colour or colours that complement your business and character. Your business cards represent you and your company, and are part of your brand identity.

Black and White / Grey Scale Back or Unprinted

We also offer cards in black and white or grey scale (a range of shades of grey with no colour).

You can also choose whether you would like one of our colour choices on the back of your business card or you can leave it plain. Talk to us about any options you are unsure of.

CHOOSE YOUR FINISH

Celloglaze in Matt or Gloss

Celloglazing will give your business cards a professional look and feel. A thin sheet of film is added to the entire surface area of the card under heat and pressure. This gives your business card a smooth, silky feel and offers added protection and durability, especially from moisture.

Cello glazing comes in matt and gloss options.

Matt celloglaze is non-reflective and is good if you’re one of those people who like to write on your business card.

Gloss celloglaze gives your cards a clear and shiny finish that brightens and enriches your card’s colours.

We can celloglaze your cards on just one or both sides.

Cards are also available without Celloglaze

CHOOSE YOUR STOCK

In printing ‘stock’ means the type of paper you would like to use for your business cards. You might think this is not that important, but stop a moment to consider that these small tactile business tools are going to be passed between people, so how it is important how they feel.

This means choosing the right paper for your cards can make the world of difference when it comes to first impressions. We offer choices between:

  • 400gsm & 310gsm LEP Deluxe Artboard OFFSET
  • 350gsm & 310gsm Deluxe Artboard DIGITAL
  • 350gsm Loyalty Card
  • 400gsm (0.4ums) Plastic
  • 350gsm
  • Recycled is also available

Talk to us about your final wording and art. We offer some guidelines on the next tab or, if you need more personalized help, our team is ready to discuss this with you and to help as much (or as little) as you would like.

A brochure or flyer’s look can be divided into four elements: Size, Colour, Finish and Stock. Additionally, you can add some optional extras (as detailed below) and customised choices of one of the elements above.

CHOOSE YOUR SIZE

When we talk about a brochure or flyer’s size, we are describing the size of the paper that it will be printed on. It is an important aspect to consider when designing your brochure or flyer. The size of pages you decide to use will have an impact on what you can include in your brochure, so it’s important that you decide this before you start designing your brochure or flyer. That way you’ll know how much room you have to work with.

A bigger page gives you more space to work with and allows you to be creative but it can also be more expensive. Opting for a smaller page size can help you save money but can also reduce the amount of space you have to get your message across. Smaller page sizes can, however, lend themselves to making an impact and can work particularly well in providing support information for products

The table at the bottom of the page details all the choices but a quick explanation of some of the sizes we use and what they mean.

A2 –A6: The A paper size system was formally adopted in Europe in the 19th century and has since spread around the world. It is now used in nearly every country apart from the USA and Canada. A4 is the most common standard business letter size used in English speaking countries.

A0 – 841 x 1189mm

A1 – 594 x 841mm

A2 – 420 x 594mm

A3 – 297 x 420mm

A4 – 210 x 297mm

A5 – 148 x 210mm

A6 – 105 x 148mm

A7 – 74 x 105mm

A8 – 52 x 74mm

CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR

We can print your brochures & flyers in full or in greyscale or black and white. It all depends on how you want it to look, what you need to convey and, of course, your budget.

Full Colour One or Both Sides

Using colour makes your brochures & flyers stand out, and experts say that certain colours tell your customer something about you and can have an impact on them. Think about what reaction you want your brochures & flyers to have. Do you want your readers to feel enthused, restful, or appreciated? Think about this small guide to colours and emotions.

Red: Picked mostly by extroverts, red is a spirited and impassioned colour. Some say it increases willingness and interest. Red on a poster or flyer can stimulate your customers and prompt them to follow you.

Pink: Pink can give a sense of caring and approval. You might pick pink for your poster or flyer if your business is about making people feel considerate and supportive, such as a charity etc.

Brown: Brown often conveys feelings of convention and tidiness. On a poster or flyer, brown will make a professional impact, and says you are serious and steady.

Orange: This colour is generally appreciated by those who are genuine and considerate, even though the colour, itself, has connotations of innovations and a zest for life. Orange might look good on a poster or flyer for a more artistic professional.

Yellow: Yellow represents wisdom, as well as happiness. Experts say that it sharpens memory and concentration. Use this on your poster or flyers if you want to give the impression of making decision-making easier and relieving anxiety.

Green: Natures ideal place – green is equitable and secure. It is also the colour of progression and liberty. Green also has connotations of the environment and wealth.

Blue: Blue is traditional and soothing. When you want to give the impression of calm, use blue. Blue is the colour that begins communication and innovation.

Black and White / Grey Scale Back or Unprinted

We also offer brochures & flyers in black and white or grey scale (a range of shades of grey with no colour).

You can also choose whether you would like one of our colour choices on the back of your document or you can leave it plain. Talk to us about any options you are unsure of.

CHOOSE YOUR FINISH

Celloglaze in Matt or Gloss

Celloglazing will give your brochures & flyers a professional look and feel. A thin sheet of film is added to the entire surface area of the paper under heat and pressure. This gives it a smooth, silky feel and offers added protection and durability, especially from moisture.

Cello glazing comes in matt and gloss options.

Matt celloglaze is non-reflective and is good if you’d like to add personal message or signature to your documents or if you simply prefer this finish.

Gloss celloglaze gives your brochures & flyers a clear and shiny finish that brightens and enriches their colours.

We can celloglaze your brochures & flyers on one or as many sides as you choose.

We can also produce brochures & flyers without Celloglaze

CHOOSE YOUR STOCK

In printing ‘stock’ means the type of paper you would like to use for your brochures and flyers. You might think this is not that important, but stop a moment to consider that these documents are going to be used – passed around and perhaps hung or pinned on walls . . . so it is important how they feel and last.

This means choosing the right paper can make the world of difference when it comes to first impressions. We offer choices between:

  • 80gsm through to 350gsm
  • Gloss, Bond and Matt (Satin) stock
  • Not all stock types are available in every gsm

The look of your envelopes and NCR book can be divided into four elements: Size, Colour, Finish and Stock. Additionally, you can add some optional extras (as detailed below).

CHOOSE YOUR SIZE

When we talk about an envelope or NCR book’s size, we are describing the size of the paper that they will be printed on.

Envelopes: For envelopes, don’t forget to consider what you will be using them for and the size of the pages you want to put in them. The standard sizes are 11b, C6, DL, DLX, C5 and C4- if you do require other sizes please check if we are able to do them

NCR Books: A6, DL, A5, A4 all available as portrait or landscape and A3 available as landscape only.

CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR

We can print your envelopes and NCR books in black, PMS (Pantone Matching System) or CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black: also called the 4-color, or process). It all depends on how you want it to look, what you need to convey and, of course, your budget.

Using colour makes your envelopes and NCR books stand out, and experts say that certain colours tell your customer something about you and can have an impact on them. Think about what reaction you want your envelopes and NCR books to have. Do you want your customers to feel enthused, restful, or appreciated? Think about this small guide to colours and emotions.

Red: Picked mostly by extroverts, red is a spirited and impassioned colour. Some say it increases willingness and interest. Red can stimulate your customers and prompt them to follow you.

Pink: Pink can give a sense of caring and approval. You might pick pink if your business is about making people feel considerate and supportive, such as a charity etc.

Brown: Brown often conveys feelings of convention and tidiness. Brown will make a professional impact, and says you are serious and steady.

Orange: This colour is generally appreciated by those who are genuine and considerate, even though the colour, itself, has connotations of innovations and a zest for life. Orange might look good for a more artistic professional.

Yellow: Yellow represents wisdom, as well as happiness. Experts say that it sharpens memory and concentration. Use this colour if you want to give the impression of making decision-making easier and relieving anxiety.

Green: Natures ideal place – green is equitable and secure. It is also the colour of progression and liberty. Green also has connotations of the environment and wealth.

Blue: Blue is traditional and soothing. When you want to give the impression of calm, use blue. Blue is the colour that begins communication and innovation.

CHOOSE YOUR FINISH

Envelopes:  Our sealing finishes include self seal, peel and seal/ strip seal or lick n stick and we can do plain face or a range of window options depending on size, as well as secretive or non-secretive options.

NCR Books: Standard finish includes numbering, perforate top copies and wrap around writing plate. Additional charge finishes include additional perforations, printing on back or additional PMS colours.

CHOOSE YOUR STOCK

In printing ‘stock’ means the type of paper you would like to use for your envelopes and NCR books. You might think this is not that important, but stop a moment to consider that these documents are going to be used – passed around (envelopes) and used often and kept in briefcases and on sites (NCR books). . . so it is important how they feel and last.

This means choosing the right paper can make the world of difference when it comes to first impressions. We offer choices between:

  • Envelopes – Standard stock is 80gsm bond for sizes up to DL, 100gsm is standard for C5 and larger
  • NCR Books – 60gsm NCR paper for internals with Crocboard cover and 1000gsm backing board as standard

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

Now you’ve got the basic printing decisions made you are ready to go ahead and add the artwork and then order your envelopes and NCR books!

Talk to us about your final wording and art. We offer some guidelines on the next tab or, if you need more personalized help, our team is ready to discuss this with you and to help as much (or as little) as you would like.

OPTIONAL EXTRAS

Is there something you would like to your envelope or NCR books that is a little different? Talk to us about this. We have a range of extras that we can include, as below.

Custom Size options:

Envelopes – generally no custom sizing available except for orders of 20, 000 or more
