Artwork Guide

How to design cheap business cards

It’s quick and simple to design your own cheap custom business cards or for your in-house design team to do so. When setting up your template ready to turn your ideas into a creative masterpiece, there are a few things you’ll need to do.

Remember that the finished size of your cheap business cards will be 85mm x 55mm, so ensure you set your artwork up at 91mm x 61mm to add your all-important 3mm bleed to both sides. You’ll need to set your colour mode as CMYK and use high resolution images only (at least 300dpi) – this will make sure that your finished artwork looks crisp and high quality. When you create your cheap business cards you’ll also need to embed or flatten your fonts as you may be using bespoke ones that we don’t have in our arsenal.

What if I don’t have a business card design?

Don’t have a design? No problem! If you need a bit of inspiration or a blank canvas to get you started, we have a wealth of cheap business card designs available in our extensive template library. No matter if you’re a hairdresser, florist, small business owner or handyman, to create your own cheap custom business cards.

What is the smallest size font I can use on my design?

As your economy business card isn’t too big, we recommend using a font size no smaller than 7pt. This will ensure all of your important details and any information your existing and potential clients need to know is legible!

What paper are my cheap business cards printed on?

We print all our economy business cards on 350gsm silk. While this paper is slightly thinner than our premium range, it’s still high quality and has the feel of a business card, meaning you can make a fantastic first impression at less of a cost.

Whatever look and feel you would like to achieve, you can buy cheap business cards from instantprint with either standard corners or smooth rounded corners – all of which come in a standard 85mm x 55mm business card size.

Here’s a quick checklist for setting your artwork up for business card printing.

  • The finished size of our economy business cards is 85mm x 55mm, so set your artwork up at 91mm x 61mm to add 3mm bleed to both sides
  • Set your colour mode as CMYK
  • Use high resolution images (at least 300dpi)
  • Embed or flatten your fonts

Should I choose single or double sided cheap business cards?

Need to include extra information on your business cards? Want to have some imagery on there to show off the services you provide? If the answer’s yes, then double sided business cards will provide you with that extra space. Want to keep it short and sweet? A single sided cheap business card is perfect for you.

Your cheap business card design goes on an incredible journey once it reaches our team. From arriving with your personal artworker who will perform our 10 point quality check, all the way down to the team in the printing area. We have a dedicated business card room in our production facility where all cards are printed on our impressive Fujifilm Jet Press.
