Thanks Alan,

Are you able to give us an idea of your business card prices?

A question to those who DIY - what paper do you print the cards on ?

For my double sided business cards, I use MX2's double-sided Glss/Matte paper (M220GM is their code.

For 'normal' business cards, I use whatever glossy paper I happen to have around (not the expensive stuff though) - again MX2 paper is good enough (and nice and cheap)

Hi Adam

we charge around 40 + VAT for 250 full colour cards on 250 gsm card (digital print) and approx 68 + VAT for 500.
But prices can be less depending on how many you require, whether or not not you want full colour or 1, 2, 3, colours, Litho or Digital, laminated etc. Hope this helps. We would need to know exactly what you are looking for so that we could quote you more accurately

We do a fair bit of Corp Id work, obviously including stationery & business cards etc. My advice would be to keep your design clean & simple, after all, the real purpose of a business card is to save someone having to write down your contact details, don't try & use one to showcase your work.

Personally I'd go for a matt finish, it's a personal thing but I always think that matt feels better, gloss is a bit too slimy for my liking. Paper wise we tend to use either a 250 or 300 gsm stock, again, makes them feel just a little bit nicer in your hand.

Hope this is of some help

I agree with Ben, keep it simple and clean and go for a matt finish

Thank you all for the advice I'm going to use a local printer for the cards they've been helpful and given me some good advice.

I've used as they start from 7.95. I have had a recent batch slightly off centre though..........
