Classic Business Cards



Matt Finish is the most popular finish for business cards. This finish has the ability to apply a beautiful, soft, slightly de-saturated affect, so works best with lighter background colours and has a non-glare appearance so doesn’t leave a glossy or shiny look once printed. This card is printed on a 450gsm stock.

£15 for 100 copies



Gloss Finish is ultra-shiny and adds a high silk sheen. It also helps bring out vibrant colours making colours appear rich and punchy. Printed on a 450gsm stock, it works really well with designs featuring darker backgrounds as gloss lamination helps hide finger prints and scuff marks.

I can't think of any areas to improve. I even received a phone call to clarify my order. The quality has always been high, and everything just as I'd hoped. I find the website ordering easy to use. I've recommended to several people, and even posted a link on our website!
Thank you for your service - I'll definitely use you again next time.

Have use Instantprint a few times. The prices are always very competative. On one occasion there was problem with trimming of the final job back this was quickly resolved and I was given a full credit note. More recently I have experienced excellent quality and very fast service.
