Add dimension to your design with embossed business cards.

  • Standard or premium thickness
  • Rounded corner option
  • Spots of raised, glossy printing on a matte front
  • Easy-to-write-on matte on the back
  • Great for highlighting logos, names & more

A cut above
With our embossed business cards, you can add layers of thick, raised gloss to specific parts of your design. The special finish gives text and visuals a can’t-miss shine and 3D texture that stands out against the smooth, matte background. It’s a great option for almost any design, since you can use embossed gloss on up to 75% of the front of your card.

Stylish & smart
Embossed business cards give you a creative, professional look, and point customers towards the most important information and images. You choose where to use the special finish. Give your company name and contact info a little extra oomph. Emphasize your logo and branding. Or make sure a special offer gets extra attention.

Fast, easy design
You can upload your own design or browse a variety of templates created specifically for embossed cards (also known as 3D business cards or spot UV business cards). Then, you decide where to add the raised, glossy printing. You can go with our default suggestions, but you’ll typically be able to choose almost any piece of your design. You’ll always see a chat option if you need a hand, and if you’re looking for ideas or inspiration, check out our business card examples.

I purchased the same style of premium business card years ago through the Japanese Vistaprint website. The embossment was so impressive that it garnered praise from my coworkers who wanted me to order some for them as well. Sadly, the Vistaprint in my region (Southeast Asia) was shut down, so I decided to order some through the US website this time. Suffice it to say, it is a shadow of what I had previously ordered. The words appear to be embossed on a glossy paper, but the logo looks to be a plain sticker on the front of the card instead of being embossed. I'm rather disappointed in the extreme drop in quality - especially for the price that I paid (not including the cost to ship it to Japan after the matter). After this drop in quality it really makes me hesitant to order and/or try any other "premium" business cards.

Look great after an initial issue with the original order

Feb 24, 2024 | Sean | Verified Buyer

I had to have a reprint done since the original order had the logo printed off-center for some reason, but the replacements were sent out at no charge to me and look great!

Wonderful Experience!

The cards didn't come squared, I expected more

Response from Vistaprint Customer Care Team:

We are deeply sorry about the off-centered print of the Embossed Gloss Business Cards you received. Allow us to check this for you. Likewise, we appreciate the provided photo of the received product as a reference. Looking at your account, your artwork looks great and properly centered on the design edit page and product preview. However, we don't encourage borders on any printed item. Based on our production and cutting process, since we print these items on a large scale of paper and will be cut down into individual pieces once done then there's a tendency that the borders will not be even. This is what happened to your order. To resolve this, we recommend re-uploading a new artwork without a border and keeping all the important details within the safety area to avoid uneven print during the cutting process. In an effort to help and as a one-time courtesy, we have taken the necessary action on your order. You will receive a confirmation email with more details. Feel free to keep or recycle the item received. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us.
