Most Common Name Card Paper Types for Your Business Part One
Before we get to the list of the Most Common Name Card Paper Types. Let us first consider the significance of name cards. The way you use graphic features, font sizes, color variations, your company identity, the kind of details you exchange, and so on will make or break your brand.
It is a well-known fact in the corporate community that your business card serves as the company's doormat. This makes business cards, also known as identity cards or name cards, extremely important for the company. It is then worthwhile to invest time and money in designing a business card that best reflects the brand.
Creating the optimal card is all about having the best alignment to show the above information most powerfully and straightforwardly possible. Given the limited space on a small card, it is best not to clog it with too much data. If you need to list several goods or services, use the reverse page.
To ensure a flawless name card, you must integrate a few printing technicalities into the design process. It is used to describe cut points, protected margins, and bleed lines.
Split marks: As the name implies, these are the lines where the paper would be cut to create the exact business card. It denotes the finished size of your card.
Safe margins: In printing, the cutting process necessitates a 3MM error gap. As a result, it is important to ensure that all of the content on the business card, including text and graphics, is at least 3MM inwards from the cut marks.
Bleed Line: Certain versions have a colored patch that extends to the cut points. Keeping the same 3MM margin of error, these colored patches must be stretched or "bled" outwards from the cut points.
