Painted Edge Business Cards

Out of the 10 billion+ business cards printed per year, 88% end up being hooped into garbage in less than a week. Out of these, potential clients hold on to a color card 10 times longer than a standard white card.

Do you want your card to end up in that 88%, or do you want your potential clients to hold on to your card even longer than 10 times?

If you said yes to the second option, then work with us at Print Peppermint to pave the way to a winning business card design.

Why Hire Us?

Like everything else, the design of a stationary item is grounded in an idea. Fortunately, we know the tricks behind breathing life into an idea that turns heads. That’s what we call a ‘great design.’ 38% of people are drawn to brands that provide visually appealing marketing content. With only a small rectangular paper at your disposal to represent the entirety of your brand, there isn’t much space to go by. However, since our job is to turn your idea into a great one, we offer you colored-edge business cards which make a much bigger impact while respecting the laws of minimalism.

Painted Edges – The Halos around Your Cards

Hand out a business card with a painted edge and you’ll definitely turn glances twice—or even thrice—your card’s way. Imagine walking into an office and finding a stack of business cards forming a colored edge. THAT sort of wow you will feel is exactly the sort of reaction your potential clients will experience after being handed your colored-edge business card.

If your brand’s card is the body, its edges form its halo. And if halos come in colors, so should your card!

Design Specifications

39% of people choose not to do business with someone if they feel that their business’s card is ‘cheap looking.’ You can expect thin, ‘plastic-y’, and easily crushable business cards to come under the cheap category of business cards. That is why we print cards on colored-edge, 32pt, and double thick, silk matte laminated paper stock. This paper stock is ideal because it is thin enough to write on with a pen/pencil yet at the same time, thick enough to be twice the weight of a regular card.

For the color of your cards’ edges, you can select from an aesthetic range of more than 15 edge colors. They are: black, brown, metallic gold, metallic pink, metallic purple, pink, red, yellow, blue, metallic blue, metallic green, metallic orange, white, turquoise, orange and white. These colors are standard, but you can also choose from neon inks. If that does not suit your brand’s identity, we can help you find the right color from our custom PMS colors.

Furthermore, since the front and back of your card will be 4-color process printed, with the edges spot-colored PMS and hand-painted, the exact matching of colors between the front/back and edges isn’t ensured. However, you can use contrasting colors for your card and its edges. It’s all the more catchy.

You can also pick edge colors based on your brand’s logo color, the background color of your card, and/or typography color.

Additional Ad-ons and Services

Research shows almost 72% of people judge a company by the quality of their business card. Just because a card comes in a colored edge doesn’t mean the audience is going to pay more attention to the quality. There has to be more to it. That is why we are offering the following extra features for your painted edge business card:

We also offer discounts on specific numbers of card sets. So, if you are ordering card stacks in bulk for your whole team and/or company, these discounts will save your day. We offer one set of cards for a price of $145.00.

A Business Card that Makes the Right Impression

It is almost common knowledge these days that more and more energy and resources are being constantly invested in visual marketing. Card embossing, colored foils, die cuts…you name it. So, if visuals matter so much today, with people having stronger design opinions, are you sure you’ made the right choice designing that tiny rectangle that is such a powerful brand representative? If not, a painted edge business card might just be the final nail in the coffin.  

Do you think your business card will end up being one of those 88% that turns to garbage, or will it make it to the stack that people tend to hold on to 10 times stronger than another ‘ordinary’ looking cards? Does your business card capture the attention of the 72% who use the quality of your card as metric gauge for the professionalism of your entire brand?

Not sure about any of these? Stop by at our company and give painted edge business cards a shot.

Ensure your card will be memorable and catchy by having its edges color-printed.

Even if it’s stashed in a wall of wallets, it will still be visible owing to its colored edge. Make the color of your brand’s logo—a highly important element on your card—pop up with a complementary or contrasting edge color!

    Absolutely love my new cards. Quality is incredible. The 32pt cards always leave a lasting impression with clients. I’ve ordered edge print cards from another company, but I’m much more impressed with these. They just feel better, heavier, sharper. Most people will think you’ve accidentally handed them two cards. The look on their face as they realize it’s a single card is priceless. You’ve just made a lasting impression.

    If you want a card that will get you noticed, you can’t go wrong with these edge print cards!

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.

    Felt very over priced for how they came out. The foiling wasn’t what I expected. A bit dark.

      To be honest we have been slowly phasing out cold foil, as hot foil has much more consistent quality. Your design required many metallic colors (as I recall) which gets pretty pricey since hot foil is priced by color. But shoot me an email and let’s talk about how we can get another set going with alternative specs.
