Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing options, part of Designing a Business Card.
- Let's consider how you will print your business card…because how you print it will affect how you design it.…If you plan to print on a desktop printer,…you could buy perforated business card paper…from an office supply store.…Alternatively, you can gang up multiple business cards…on a single sheet and cut them yourself.…This is fast and flexible.…If you need business cards yesterday,…then it's a viable option.…The downside is that it can look cheap.…The paper probably won't be thick enough,…the inks might run, and it's difficult to print both sides.…
Digital printing is good for small to medium print runs.…Digital printing is good quality and it's affordable.…Because most digital presses are limited to CMYK colors,…you won't be able to print spot colors…without converting them to process or CMYK equivalents.…And the range of paper stocks may be limited…to keep costs down.…Digital printing is very flexible.…Moo Cards, one of the leading online providers…offers a service they call Printfinity,…where each card can be different.…
