Frequently Asked Questions

If your card will use bright, contrasting colours and a simple design, metallic cards could be a great option for you. We find that lighter foil colours tend to work best – dark grey or black foil doesn’t really shimmer. If your design includes a lot of fine detail, you may want to consider another option – the finish can help catch the light, but the detail may look a little muddy.

Yes. It’s important to note that your design will be printed onto a white foil surface – so if you have anything in your design that is white, it won’t actually be printed onto the card. Instead, the white foil will shine through.

The difference between glossy or matte often comes down to a personal preference. For richer, more saturated designs, matte is a good choice. If your design involves vivid colours or photography, you may want to consider our glossy paper.

For most people, choosing between standard or square shapes is a matter of preference. That said, there are a few things you can consider pick a card size that matches your business personality. Standard cards (85 x 55 mm) are the traditional and most familiar, and well complement timeless, classic card designs. Square cards (65 x 65 mm) are fresh and bold, especially popular among creative professionals interested in conveying an innovative, edgy style.

Was practically illegible. There should be a process whereby you can receive 4/5 samples before having to order 250. Had to throw the 250 straight into the bin.
