We’re excited to unveil our new company wide business card design! Our new cards feature a number of special finishes for a design that truly stands out. A great business card can help make a positive impression on customers and communicates a lot about your brand. One way to add a professional and elegant look to your design is by adding specialty finishing options such as a spot varnish or edge painting. Keep reading to see some of the awesome new features we’ve added to step up our business cards!
Features of our new design
Edge painting adds an unexpected pop of colour to your business cards and is available in a wide variety of shades to compliment your branding. A striking red was chosen for our cards, to reflect our corporate colours. Edge painting can be applied to different thicknesses of cards, depending on how dramatic you’d like the effect to be. While our cards are a standard 14pt thickness, edge painting can also be applied to triple thick card stock for a bolder appearance.
Spot varnish is a finishing process that adds a layer of shine to certain elements of your design, such as logos and text. This can help call attention to certain features of your design, or can be used to create a unique, eye catching effect. For our business cards, we added spot varnish to a motif of our TPH icon – the black on black design is subtle, yet captivating when it catches the light.
Soft touch lamination
Soft touch lamination adds a smooth, velvety texture to your cards for a truly luxurious feeling. When it comes to business cards, it’s important to remember that touch is an important design element in addition to how the design looks visually. Adding a unique texture or coating to your card can help make it more memorable. In our case, the soft touch lamination also adds a nice, matte contrast to the spot varnish icons.
Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an international certification and labelling system dedicated to promoting responsible forest management of the world’s forests. Our new business cards are FSC certified, printed on FSC MIX paper. It was important to us to print our cards on stock that was responsibly sourced, as we are a company that is committed to the environment and sustainable values.
