Ensuring the durability of your business cards is essential, as they often make the first impression in professional interactions. At Print Harbour, we believe in creating business cards that not only look great but also withstand the test of time. Here are some effective ways to enhance the durability of your business cards:
Opting for a thicker, high-quality paper stock is the first step towards a more durable business card. Heavier card stocks like 350-400 gsm (grams per square metre) provide a sturdy base and are less prone to bending or tearing.
Laminating your business cards adds a protective layer, making them more resistant to water, dirt, and wear and tear. You can choose between matte and glossy lamination, depending on the look and feel you prefer.
UV coating not only provides a high-gloss finish that enhances the card’s colours and design but also adds an extra layer of durability. This coating is resistant to smudging and scratching.
For maximum durability, consider materials like plastic or metal for your business cards. These materials are much more resilient than paper and can make a bold statement. They are ideal for businesses that want to stand out.
Rounded corners are not only aesthetically pleasing but also prevent the corners of the card from fraying or bending easily, which is a common issue with standard square-edged cards.
At Print Harbour, we’re dedicated to providing you with business cards that are both impressive and long-lasting. Our range of durable materials and finishes ensures that your business cards will maintain their professional appearance over time.
