Sizes of our Folded Business Cards

Our Folded Business Card Printing is available in three standard sizes.

85mm x 55mm is now widely accepted as the norm for all Business Card printing. It is a similar size to a credit card, so it fits easily into a wallet. Our Folded Business Cards are printed in double business card or triple business card sizes and creased in one or two positions:

  • Double business card – Portrait. This Folded Business Card is 110mm x 85mm when flat. It is creased in one position, so it can be folded in half to make a portrait business card size product.
  • Double business card – Landscape. This Folded Business Card is 170mm x 55mm when flat. It is creased in one position, so it can be folded in half to make a landscape business card size product.
  • Triple business card – Portrait. This Folded Business Card is 164mm x 85mm when flat. It is creased in two positions, so it can be roll folded to make a portrait business card size product.

Folded Business Card Printing Material

450gsm silk board. This card is very rigid and has a non-reflective silk rather than gloss surface. In recent years, this material has become the most widely used material for Folded Business Card printing


Lamination protects the printed surface of the Folded Business Card and reduces cracking along the creases on the outside of the card.

  • Gloss lamination creates a very glossy surface.
  • Matt lamination has a flat non-reflective look.
  • Soft Touch lamination is almost the same as matt lamination, but it resists scuffing and has a slightly velvety feel – a bit like the skin of a peach.

Artwork and PDF requirements for Folded Business Card Printing

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your Folded Business Card artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service of £20 plus VAT.
  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished Folded Business Card, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a “quiet area” to ensure nothing important is too near to the trimmed edge of the Folded Business Card; so please leave an inner margin of between 3mm and 5mm for anything other than backgrounds
  • Supply your Folded Business Card artwork files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • The image resolution should be 300dpi or more
  • Please embed fonts or convert all your text to shapes
