Top 6 Business Card Trends for 2020

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

Nothing says professional like having a well-designed business card!

39% of people argue that they would not do business with somebody who has a cheap, badly designed business card. Making it even more important to ensure that your business card is well-design and makes the right first impression.

For this reason, we have put together a list of our ‘Top 6 Business Card Trends’ to help you to create a lasting impression.

1. 400/450gsm Card

Using heavyweight business cardstock is a fantastic way to stand out from your competitors. Printing onto heavy cardstock not only gives the look and feel of a high end, premium business card, it also lasts a long time too.

As premium thick cardstock business cards are durable and maintain their original shape for a long time – they are sure to stand out against the tattered business cards of your competitors.

2. Die Cut Business Cards

Die-Cutting is a quick and easy way to make your creative business cards stand out within your industry. When you move away from the traditional form of a rectangular business card, your unique design is sure to make a lasting impression.

As custom cut business cards can be die-cut to almost any shape, you can be as creative as you like! Why not match your logo, experiment with rounded corners, shape your business cards to match the products your sell, or perhaps design your business card in an alternative square format? With infinite possibilities, you’re sure to stand out from your competitors.

3. Minimalism

Minimalist business cards are a great way to get your key information and contact details across to your potential clients.

Busy, congested business cards are much more likely to be thrown away as the message on the card is confusing and unclear. Confining your business cards, so that they just include the most important details, not only makes them look smarter, but also increases the visibility of your custom business cards above your competition!

4. Soft Touch Lamination

Make your professional business cards stand out with Soft Touch Lamination! Soft touch lamination is an excellent way to draw attention to your business cards due to their unique texture.

As colours appear richer on Soft Touch Laminated business cards, they’re a great way to stand out from your competitors!

5. Interactive Business Cards

Interactive business cards are a fantastic way to encourage your clients to keep your business cards on their desks for longer. The more creative your business cards are, the more likely you are to stand out and be unique!

You could create a business card that folds into an airplane, that doubles as a hair comb, that folds into a box or even one that contains a packet of seeds! Whatever your business is selling, there is plenty of scope to get creative and produce a business card

that your clients and potential clients will love!

6. Textured Business Cards

Textured Business Cards are becoming an increasingly popular option to promote businesses.

Raised Spot UV business cards are a fantastic way to add a personal touch. The texture adds a luxury finish to your card that ensures it is memorable. Why not make sure your logo stands out or use Spot UV to create subtle patterns?
