For all the information you can get online about a business and its whereabouts, nothing can replace the goodwill the right business card creates. The right business card can enhance the image of your business. Your business card can either entice the receiver to approach your company or ignore you completely. Here are our top tips to design the perfect business card.
Professional business cards give out the right information about your business. Discuss with your design team about what you want to include – logo, address, email, phone numbers.
Business cards do not have to be just dull looking pieces of paper. You can create impressive business cards by choosing the right type of paper.
Uncoated paper, being more absorbent, allows the ink to sink in more and appear flatter. Silk-coated paper offers a lower sheen whereas gloss-coated paper comes with a high sheen. You can also opt for a matt or gloss lamination for your business cards for extra protection.
You can opt for business cards in a standard size (55x85mm) or opt for a bigger or smaller size. Special print finishes such as metallic foiling, rounded corners, spot UV and soft-touch velvet lamination can give your business cards an enhanced look.
Your business card represents you to the world. One look at your business card and people will judge what your business or organisation is all about.
Avoid designs that clutter and use legible fonts. You can print your business information on one side or both sides of the card, in either portrait or landscape. Use creative card design ideas to make your business card unique.

“On behalf of the Hostmen’s Company of Freemen of Newcastle upon Tyne, over the past two years I have arranged to have printing, photocopying and books printed and perfect bound by Metro Repro. Some of the work related to important historical documents that were to be archived as well as personal documents. I have always been very pleased with the service, the quality of the work and the price charged. I thought that they could not have been better, but this week at 10am on Monday morning I passed them five pdf books amounting to almost 8,000 pages to be printed. About 1.15pm the same day, they were delivered to my home printed. I was thrilled with their achievement as I expected to wait at least one week before I received the prints. I have checked their work within the week I thought I would be waiting to start. Very satisfied. They surpassed all my expectations, from giving the work to Graham at the front desk I received the best of help and advice, the background staff must have pulled out all the stops to complete the work. They have saved me months of work with their efforts and professionalism. Congratulations to all concerned and I highly recommend if you want printing go to this company, they are simply the best.”
“Fast, friendly service with an easy to use website. We had an urgent print job and our printer wasn't working. Linda turned the job around in under an hour! We only needed normal documents of the kind you would usually print at work/home but we were very impressed at the high quality print/paper used too - a nice touch and good value for money. I especially liked how you can simply upload your job to their website, then they send you email confirmation when the job is complete. Fantastic service! Metro Repro is well-located close to the city centre (two minute walk from city library, Northumberland St. etc.) but there is also parking nearby if you need to drive there. Highly recommended!”
“Excellent printing service! Great quality print for a really decent price. The fact that they print for you while you wait is really great and comes in handy when you are in a pinch over deadlines. They have saved my life more than once! Lovely staff who are kind, friendly and do whatever they can to help you out. Wonderful customer service! I would highly recommend everyone come here for your printing needs! 10/10 Great service!”
“Fantastic service and quality of print, I have worked in the design industry for twenty years and yet to find a better or more friendly printer. They printed my portfolio for me and made it look incredible. Massive thanks to the team for their patience and expertise. Would highly recommend them, especially for their quick turn around time and the excellent quality. Thanks again for your amazing work.”
“These guys did a great job of printing out double sided and binding my Microsoft Word 10 draft novels using a black plastic binder and transparent covers. They lent me a memory stick to transfer my files to them. The prices for each job was very reasonable and the job was done while I waited in the Flat Cap Cafe round the corner - several times for several different books. I will definitely use their services again. Very impressed.”
“Have been using Metro Repro for over 3 years and I will never go anywhere else. The print quality is always perfect, and I can't believe how quick they are at everything. They are always so helpful, they always go the extra mile and I can't thank them enough for everything. Would recommend to anyone!”
