Bigger isn’t always better. When it comes to standing out, particularly at trade shows, conferences and events, having slim business cards on hand is a particularly savvy move. Even though they’re just a fraction more narrow than a standard card, it’s just different enough to feel unique in the hand – and to stand out among more traditionally sized cards.

Bleed (Red Line): Your background should reach this line. This helps to prevent white lines from appearing along the edges.
Trim (Solid Blue Line): This line shows the expected edges.
Safe Area (Dotted Grey Line): Any text and images need to fit within this box.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are slim business cards right for me and my business?
A: For most people, choosing a card shape is a matter of personal 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. 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.
Q: Do you offer recycled paper options? I’m interested in eco-friendly business cards.
A: Yes. Our recycled matte and textured uncoated cards are made from 100% post-consumer reycled paper, while our kraft paper is made from 90% post-consumer recycled paper.
Q: Will my design look the same on any paper stock?
A: No. Different paper stocks absorb ink differently, and this may affect how your design looks when it’s printed. We recommend you consider the following when selecting your paper: Is your design predominantly dark or light? Does it feature all-over colour or simple lines and text? Then pick the paper that best suits your design and your general style.
Q: Will slim cards fit in standard business card holders?
Q: Can I get rounded corners?
A: No, not at this time.
Q: Can I print on the back of my card?
A: Yes. You can choose from our one- or two-sided printing options.
