Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s a quick rundown of standard business cards:
Business card size in inches: 3.5" x 2" Business card size in Photoshop: 1050 x 600 pixels
We also offer square cards or rounded corner cards, which are a little different than the typical business card size. Also, when you’re designing or choosing a template, remember that business card dimensions may include a “bleed area,” which is extra space for images, patterns or design elements that extend beyond the cut edges – this helps prevent having white edges around your finished card.
Business card thickness is usually measured in “points,” abbreviated as “pt.” The higher the number, the thicker the card. Standard business card thickness is 14pt, but weights can vary by paper type. For instance, our ultra thick business cards are actually 32pt, and our premium plus cards come in at 18pt.
FSC® is the abbreviation for the Forest Stewardship Council® – paper with this certification is sourced from healthy forests through responsible methods, helping protect trees for future generations.
You’ll see the FSC® logo on many of our business card options, since over 90% of them are FSC® certified.

Every business is different, but there are a few things anyone should have on their card. You’ll want to include your name, the name of your business, your contact info and your logo. Then, you can also add optional elements like photos, artwork, customer testimonials, a brand motto and more – whatever you think will connect with potential customers and business partners.
You don’t need to, but you certainly can. Some people put their logo or slogan on the backside of their card. Others will list their company website or hours of operation for quick reference at a glance. And there are lots of other options, too – coupons, photos, artwork and more.

You want to find something that matches up well with both your industry and your personality. Thicker, heavier stocks can work well for businesses trying to project strength and reliability. More textured, unique finishes are a great choice for craftspeople and artists. And finishes like embossed gloss and foil accents can help almost any design be extra eye-catching. In the end, it’s really a personal decision, and there are no wrong choices.
If the information is still mostly correct, you can keep them as backups by crossing out the out-of-date info and writing in new text. If the cards are mostly inaccurate, we’d recommend recycling them.
We’d recommend using one of our business card holders, available in an assortment of different materials and styles.
