Cheap business cards – Are they any good?

In this article we aim to answer the question; Cheap business cards – are they any good?

There are many different factors that play a part in the print process. The quality of these factors adds up to produce your cheap business card. So, I guess the answer to the question is; it depends on which company prints the cards and on what type & quality of card they use.


Quality of Card: use a high quality 300gsm silk card it is 280μm (microns) thick. Other slightly more well known companies that have adverts on the TV, or sound like a farm yard animal use a 300gsm card as standard. They then call their 400gsm cards super. Our cheap business cards are really your industry standard card at a lower more competitive price!
