Is your regular business card not cutting it? Do you want to make an impact at your next business meeting? Do you want to be able to use your business card as a raft if you’re stranded on a desert island?

So long as you’ve got the space, we’ve got the perfect business card. At instantprint, we’re all about thinking big. So we’ve decided to take that literally.

With our supersized business card, 728 times bigger than an ordinary business card, you’re guaranteed to stand out from the crowd and ensures your clients, customers and colleagues will never forget how best to contact you.

Measuring in at an enormous 36.65 ft2, our business card is officially recognised by the Guinness World Records as the largest business card ever. We even have an official certificate to prove it.

And now you can get hold of one for yourself for when you really want to take your networking to the next level. With this larger than life business card you’re guaranteed to make an impression at any networking event, while at only £99.99 it could be the ultimate gift for a colleague in the office.

But how did the world’s largest business card come about?

“Really, we wanted to test ourselves. instantprint co-owner, James Kinsella, said: “What better way to celebrate our recent move to larger premises and investment in the very latest printing technology, than to demonstrate we can print just about anything!”

The business card was made out of a 5mm Westland foam centred board with a matt finish. Despite the ambitious nature of this, printing only took six seconds.

After the record had been confirmed by Guinness, the team had some fun, and sent a world’s biggest business card to two customers who had ordered normal sized cards. They were received by Kevin Harper, director at Leeds business iSourceIT and Doncaster based Red 10’s Head of Distribution, Emily McAnulty – much to the pair’s shock. You can see their reactions in the video below.

If you want to surprise your clients like we surprised some of our customers, it’s time to think big with the world’s largest business card!

In Numbers – the World's Largest Business Card

It measures a whopping 2293 X 1485mm, 728 times larger than a normal business card – In contrast the smallest card instantprint produce is The Mini Business Card at just 85x25mm.

Despite having a huge area of 3.40 metres squared, the card keeps its thinness and is just 5mm thick.

It costs the fantastic price of just £99.99 and was printed on the large format HP Scitex 11000 inkjet printer.
