A true classic never goes out of style – a point well proven by matte business cards. This paper stock continues to be among our most popular year after year, and it’s easy to see why: The shine-free paper absorbs more ink, making it a great option for big, colourful designs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Different paper stocks best complement certain kinds of designs. Matte paper is an especially good choice if your design features vibrant patterns with a lot of ink – the paper absorbs the ink especially well, so your design will look all the more vibrant and rich. If your design uses very crisp, fine lines, you may want to consider another paper stock, as fine lines can sometimes bleed.

Our matte cards come in two paper weights – standard (300 gsm) and premium (400 gsm). Each paper weight features a silk-coated front and back. We typically recommend standard matte cards for high-volume distribution – trade shows, events or package inserts. For more personal, one-on-one interactions, we’d recommend our premium paper.

For most people, choosing among our shapes – standard, square and slim – is a matter of preference. That said, there are a few things you can consider, such as picking a card size that matches your business personality. Standard cards (85 x 55 mm) are traditional and the most familiar and they complement timeless, classic card designs perfectly. Square cards (65 x 65 mm) are fresh and bold, especially popular among creative professionals interested in conveying an innovative, edgy style. Slim cards (85 x 40 mm) are sleeker, the middle ground between classic and contemporary – while this shape adds a unique touch of visual interest, it still fits in standard business card holders.

Our brilliant finishes are special upgrades that add more visual interest to your card design. Our metallic finish adds a foil effect to your design, while spot UV applies raised gloss to specific areas of your design. Please note that these finishes are applied to the front of card designs only.
