How to design luxury business cards
Are you adopting your creative hat and designing your own business cards? Or perhaps you’re getting your in-house team on the case? However you’re producing the artwork for your premium business cards, we’ve compiled some quick tips to help get you started on your creative journey.
The finished size of your luxury business cards will be 85mm x 55mm, so you’ll have to set your artwork up at 91mm x 61mm when you begin designing to allow for a 3mm bleed. Your bleed area is a thin border around your artwork that helps make sure there are no unwanted borders left over after trimming.
You will also have to ensure your colour mode is set to CMYK and that you use high-resolution images only (at least 300dpi) on your artwork. Don’t forget to embed or flatten your fonts too, especially if you are using company specific or bespoke ones which we may not have in our arsenal.
What if I don’t have a premium business card design?
No design? That’s not a problem! We have a wealth of free luxury business card templates available in our library. Already have a design in mind? We offer blank templates too!
No matter if you’re a luxury furniture store, an event planner or a café owner, we have a premium business card design to suit everyone. Find the perfect template online and bring your artwork to life.

What paper are my luxury business cards printed on?
When you send your artwork into us it goes on an incredible journey here at our site. From passing through your personal artworker who will perform our 10 point quality check, all the way to the print room where we print your professional high-quality business cards on 450gsm silk. This paper is thick and card-like, making it a sturdy and high-quality option.
What finish should I choose for my custom premium business cards?
There are a number of different finishes you can choose from, and each depends on what you will be using them for.
Non-laminated is a great choice if you want to use your luxury business cards as appointment cards and want to write or stamp onto them. Choose matt if you want a smooth finish and the option to also add Spot UV to your design. Gloss creates a high-shine look that brightens your colours and really makes your design pop. Our velvet finish has a soft, luxurious touch.
How are my high-quality business cards printed?
We have a dedicated business card room in our production facility where all cards, including our premium business cards, are printed on our impressive Fujifilm Jetpress.
When will my custom luxury business cards be delivered?
