Die Cut Business Cards - Overview

Die-cut business cards are printed in full color on both sides of a silk matte laminated paper stock, available in 18 pt and 32 pt thicknesses.

We can die-cut any custom shape you can imagine and even offer laser die-cutting for the more complex designs.

If you need help with a design or setting up your file correctly, our designers are happy to help create your die-files at no cost.

About the Paper Stock

What is silk matte laminated paper?

A silk matte laminated paper is a type of paper coated with a matte film that makes it durable yet smooth to the touch. The material is neither 100% shiny nor 100% matte. Even with a silky suede-like texture, you should be able to write on its surface with a permanent marker or a standard ballpoint pen.

This durable and subtly textured finish is achieved through a process called silk lamination. While it’s pretty similar to traditional lamination, it produces classier and more durable paper products.

Silk lamination creates a unique coating that protects the paper from creases, scratches, rips, stains, sun damage, and smudges. It even provides a rather high level of water resistance. That means you can wipe down a card with a damp cloth without ruining its print or the paper itself. Even when a potential client uses your card as a coaster, your contact details should remain undamaged.

Artwork Guidelines

  • Bleeds: all files must have a 1/8″ bleed on each side
  • Live Area: keep all critical text and artwork inside the trim
  • Colors: supply your files in CMYK color mode (not Pantone)
  • Resolution: 300 dpi
  • Fonts: fonts must be converted to curves/outlines
  • Transparencies: flatten all transparencies
  • File Types: PDF, EPS, TIFF or JPEG

Special Finish Guidelines


If your project includes foil stampingspot UV, embossing, or die cutting you will need to provide a mask file (per finish) alongside your design files.

  1. Create a black and white pdf file where all black areas have a color value of K = 100%  (C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100)
  2. Black areas represent where you want the finish to be located and white means no finish will be applied.
  3. If your project contains more than one finish, you must provide separate mask files for each finish.

    When my clients needed to order more business cards, I knew I wanted to convince them to try Print Peppermint. I had been using them for a while with other clients and was always pleased with the final product. Since this client was on a tight budget, I wanted to see the difference in cost between Print Peppermint and Vistaprint (the company they used for their last cards). With the new customer discount, we got the Print Peppermint cards for LESS than what we would have paid at Vistaprint. And let me just say, the product is SO much better and the clients were ecstatic. In case anyone is wondering, it's not just the product that is amazing but the people who work there and the customer service is TOP NOTCH.

    Fast shipping and the samples are great inspiration for future orders I would like to place. They show a nice range of print capabilities that you offer. The design and illustration work of Peppermint is always cool and respectable.

    The quality of the cards were great! We did embossing with a logo that had thinner lines. It looked amazing!
