LUXE business cards
Standout business cards
We offer a LUXE business card service for customers looking for a high-quality product with special design features. These cards use extra thick paper, hot foil printing technique, great colours, and a luxurious finish and feel to make your card stand out.
Duplex and triplex business cards
In our LUXE line we offer business cards that are printed onto duplex and triplex card. Duplex card is made of two different cards glued together, so the front can be made of different card than the back. Similarly, triplex card uses three layers of card glued together sandwich-style.
Thickness and finish of LUXE business cards
For our LUXE cards we offer a full range of GF Smiths COLORPLAN papers. Each layer is printed on 270gsm card, giving a 540gsm weight in the duplex version and over 700gsm in the triplex version. Often in the triplex version we use thinner outside layers so the total weight does not exceed 700gsm, making the card easier to store in a wallet.
In combination with the COLORPLAN range of papers we also offer premium CONQUEROR papers, both smooth and laid.
Hot foil printing
Our LUXE cards are created with a combination of digital printing and hot foil printing techniques.
- Eye-catching effects such as shiny metallic, satins, and gloss that stand out and add texture to the card
- Range of hot foil colours including gold, silver, white, and transparent gloss or matt
- If you would like a special colour, just let us know and we'll check availability
Size of business card
The most common printed business card size in the UK is 85 x 55mm (the same size as a debit or credit card). We can also print your LUXE business card using other standards such as Central European (90 x 50mm) or US (3 x 2.5in). If you require special (non UK) size please contact us before placing an order.
LUXE business cards design preparation
Please note that all elements which you want to have stamped with hot foil must be supplied as vector objects. We need a press-quality PDF file in order to create hot foil business cards.
Please see our blank templates. They use the most popular file formats: InDesign, EPS, PDF and Photoshop PSD. Using our printing templates will speed up the creative process and avoid any artwork printing errors (such as size or bleed).
For advice on the design of your LUXE business card, just give us a call or send us an e-mail. We would love to help!
Our LUXE business cards can normally be printed in 5-7 days. If you require a faster turnaround please contact us to check availability before placing your order.
