Business Cards Printing Using Online Printing
Online Printing Services have come a very long way in the last couple of years. The technology
available to print anything from an online business – from leaflets and posters to business cards
and flyers – has developed at an almost incremental rate. These days, business cards printing
done online bring about the exact same results you would have got five years ago, if you had
gone into the best high street printing shop in the country and asked for your cards to be designed
and run off by their top employee.
As the technology required to perform online printing services well has become more advanced
and more widely available, the cost of professional standard printing has dropped. These days a
company can pretty much order its business cards directly on a website, have proof copies
mocked up and sent over and get the finished article confirmed and back within days of starting
the process. Most business cards printing services on the Internet employ excellent design teams,
who are able to offer suggestions or full designs where companies do not have their own ideas
There are some catch all design tips that companies using online printing services can use to
make the process even quicker and even easier. For a start: keep it simple. Do not include any
information other than the following: company name, person’s name, person’s email and phone
number, and if necessary the person’s position. Absolutely nothing else needs to be on any kind
of business card, no matter what kind of business your company is in.
Next: if you are using an online Business Cards printing service to make your cards, be sure to
get a proper colour sample sent to you. It is very difficult to tell what colour a physical ink will
look like printed on card, from a sample on a computer screen. Ask your online printing services
partner to send you an actual hard copy sample, so you know that what you get in the final
analysis is what you thought you would be getting.
Never use more than a couple of colours in your business cards unless you really have to. The
more colours you ask your online business cards printing service to include the more confusing
the overall design will be. The best business cards have one colour other than black, grey or
white on them.
Ask the employees at your online printing services partner what colours they would use, what
kind of card and so on. These people do this for a living – you are only doing it because you have
to. Get the advice of the people that do it every day and your finished business cards will look
Finally: order more than you think you will need, because you will always need more than you
have. And ordering in bulk from an online business cards printing service will get you much
better discounts. Go big, save money and never run out of cards.
