Business Cards & Name Cards
Business or name cards originated in China in the 15th century,
were used in Europe soon after, and then became mainstream world
wide. Even in todays digital age business cards are used almost
everywhere due to their communication effectiveness, and satisfying
Business cards communicate through their printed words &
images, as well as through their tactile properties - weight,
texture, stiffness, and any special standout treatments.
Quality Quickly - No Tricks, and Plenty of Standout Options
Some printers use various 'tricks' to try and make their
products appear low cost. These tricks include adding their
brand name to the cards, using low grade, low weight or incorrect
grain stock (card), retaining ownership of any artwork, charging
extra for a protective box, using colour photocopiers instead of
colour managed digital printers, etc.
