Color Options

Once you are done with your details such as name, designation, logo, company and other contact details, the next part is to provide your business card printer with the color options for your business card. There are three possible choices:

4/0 Color Front, No Back
4/1 Color Front, Black & White Back
4/4 Color Both Sides

Card Stock

Now you need to select your card stock or what some people refer to as card paper. Mostly clients are presented with two options such as 14pt or 13pt with a 100% recycled paper. It is recommended that you select 14pt if you want professional looking business cards.

Coating and Finishing

Now you are left to give final touch to your business card. Most of the two coatings for business cards are matte and UV coating. For premium business cards, it is recommended to always select UV coating for high gloss effect plus it offers added durability and protection as compared to matte coating. You will also have the option to have either perfectly square or rounded corners for your business cards.
