Premium Business Cards
Premium Business cards are cards bearing business information about a company or individual. They are shared during formal introductions as a convenience and a memory aid. A business card typically includes the giver's name, company or business affiliation (usually with a logo) and contact information such as street addresses, telephone number(s), fax number, e-mail addresses and website. Before the advent of electronic communication business cards might also include telex details. Now they may include social media addresses such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Traditionally many cards were simple black text on white stock; today a professional business card will sometimes include one or more aspects of striking visual design.
Paper & size
The standard dimensions for a printed business card are 3.5 x 2 inches. That's the finished card size. Many printed designs include bleed.
The "bleed area" is an extra 1/8 inch of space for design elements or backgrounds that extend beyond the finished size of your piece.
