Frequently asked questions

Business card thickness is usually measured in ‘grams per square metre’, abbreviated as ‘gsm’. The higher the number, the thicker the card. Standard business card thickness is 300 gsm, but weights can vary by paper type. For instance, our ultra-thick business cards are actually 650 gsm and our premium cards come in at 360 gsm.

Here’s a quick rundown of standard business card sizes:

  • Business card size in inches: 3.5" x 2"
  • Business card size in cm/mm: 85 x 55 mm
  • Business card size in Photoshop: 1050 x 600 pixels

We also offer square or rounded corner cards, which are a little different in size than typical business cards. Also, when you’re designing or choosing a template, remember that business card dimensions may include a ‘bleed area’, which is extra space for images, patterns or design elements that extend beyond the cut edges. This helps prevent having white edges around your finished card.

If the information is still mostly correct, you can keep them as backups by crossing out the out-of-date info and writing in new text. If the cards are mostly inaccurate, we’d recommend recycling them.
