Product: Large Postcard
8.5 x 11 large postcard printed in full color (4/4) on 14 pt C2S paper with overall UV coating. Custom die-cuts are applied to the postcard, creating business card slits for attaching business cards.
Product: Business Cards
Four business cards, all printed in full color (4/4) on durable 14 point C2S paper with overall Gloss coating (the most popular coating choice):
- Classic Business Card – the most popular style we produce. This sample is the common 3.5 x 2 size. Five other awesome sizes available.
- Even-Folded Business Card – also called a Tent Fold Business Card or Folded Business Card, this style gives you extra space to share more information or images on your business cards. They are 3.5 x 4 flat and, when folded, are 3.5 x 2. (They are scored and folded in half, and shipped flat to you.)
- Offset-Folded Business Card – this business card is very similar to the Even-Folded Business Card but with a unique feature that makes it a standout: the top panel is cut a bit shorter (a quarter inch) so a portion of your inside designs shows. They are 3.5 x 3.75 flat and, when folded, are 3.5 x 2.Some folks call this a Reveal Fold or a Reveal Folded Business Card. Whatever the name, it’s wicked cool!
- Classic Business Card with Rounded Corners – this is a sample of a 3.5 x 2 business card with shapely rounded corners, which is available to you as a small upgrade that packs a great impression. Rounded corners can be applied to any of of our business cards.
Steal this Idea: The postcard has multiple business card slits applied to it so that four business cards can be attached, transforming a postcard into a display device.
