While free business cards are nice, they do not have all the features of other versions. A business card has become much more than a small piece of paper. This miniature advertising dynamo now features linen and silk laminated textures that rival the finest stationery. Check these out because they are well worth the cost.
A business card makes an initial impression on prospects and associates. Free business cards do their job of advertising the company and the cardholder. Linen or silk-textured cards say, “I will go the extra mile for you.” Whoever receives these is impressed and the compliments quickly lead to a conversation about how the businessperson can help meet the recipient’s needs.
Linen business cards are textured and printed on 100LB white linen cover. The linen stock is made from 30 percent recycled material, reducing concerns regarding environmental impact. The card features such a unique texture and feel that it is left uncoated. Adding a lamination would only reduce its wow-factor. Full color printing adds to the appeal and can be used on both sides of the card.
Silk laminated business cards are made from 16 point thick stock and feature a silk laminated texture. These cards are elegant and when the rounded corner version is selected, style is elevated a few levels. Full color printing and optional spot UV coating on one or both sides make a great impression on recipients.
Both of these styles are available with a horizontal or vertical orientation. Silk laminated cards come in slim sizes in addition to the standard 2×3.5-inch dimensions. Short run printers can create quantities as small as 250 to as large as 100,000. Prices are extremely reasonable, with 500 linen cards costing under $40 and prices under $60 for the same quantity of silk laminated cards in standard or slim versions.
