Business cards, which used to be called calling cards, have come a long way. They used to be plain, black and white cards with basic information printed on the front in plain script. Today, clients are virtually unlimited as to the design of a business card. They can be photographic quality, featuring high resolution graphics, unique fonts, and a rainbow of background colors.
Business card suppliers often specialize in providing bulk quantities of cards to customers at a discount. Such designers and exporters often have contracts with retailers, business professionals, advertisement companies, and corporations. Online business card printers offer an added dimension of services for customers including online designs, templates, and free samples. Companies that make and print promotional business cards may also provide business envelopes, rubber stamps, letterheads, postcards, and labels.
Business card providers can print either large orders for bigger companies or small orders, around 50 business cards, for small business owners. Cards can be printed on one or both sides, contain photographs, bold colors, and embossed print. Alongside foil-printed letters, high-quality glossy finishes or plastic laminates are also available. Some online business card services even let customers upload their own artwork, or provide transparent business card designs.
