There are so many options for customizing your business cards that there’s just no excuse for handing over something bland and generic. Here’s some tips to make sure your design looks awesome:

These super cool cards feature both embossing and spot UV treatment.
  1. Be consistent with your branding; your business cards, stationery, brochures, and website should all use the same 2-3 fonts and colors.
  2. Don’t use COMIC SANS or PAPYRUS 😀
  3. Try unexpected type direction or card orientation, or maybe even a custom shape
  4. The things that should sing the loudest are your company name, then your name, then all your contact information
  5. Don’t clutter up your card with excessive information or qualifications. Your card should answer the questions 1) Who Are You? 2) What do you do? 3) How can I reach you? Conversation and a brief perusal of your flyer or website can do the rest.
  6. Take advantage of the many customization options offered at Global:
  • Rounded Corners
  • Extra thickkk stock
  • Plastic or Metal cards
  • Embossing/Debossing
  • Custom Shapes
  • Spot UV coating (makes only certain areas shiny)
  • Raised Spot UV coating
  • Metallic Foil (any color)
  • Raised Metallic Foil (Gold, Silver, Copper, or Holographic)
  • Special Cutouts
  • Painted Edges
  • and most importantly custom design!

We just designed and printed these business cards for Anna at Phillips Interiors, and we love how they came out.  Anna wanted to add some photography on the back of her cards to showcase her work, and she chose to add glossy UV coating in the shape of the “P” from her logo over top.  Way to drive your branding home Anna!  Spot UV can be applied to one or both sides of your product, in any shape or pattern you like.  Contact us about adding some well placed shine to your printed products today!

We often see metallic foils used to accent certain focal points on a card, but it’s not every day you see one that reverses the trend.  These business cards feature raised metallic foil on one side, lending an even more regal feel to the Villareal logo, and a metallic background with black printing on the other side.  C’est magnifique!  Contact us for pricing on your dream business cards today!
