Next Level Networking: Print Unique Business Cards

Business Cards do more than offer your contact information. They’re a prelude that promotes, an appetizer that advertises. And because they’re doing double marketing duty, they need a design that compels customer connections and potential business partnerships. Unique business cards printed at Smartpress do just that.

Something Different

Business Cards finished with gold, rose gold, silver or holographic foil puts the focus on your facts. Your name pops with the gleam and glint of gold or sophisticated shine of silver on Foil Business Cards, all of which feature Soft Touch laminate on Coated Semigloss paper stock to ensure a look and feel that’s as distinct as your business. And unlike stamping, the foil adheres only to the printed ink, not the paper, making it easily customizable and so much more affordable.

For details that are never dull, consider rose gold or holographic foil. Also known as unicorn, the iridescent holographic foil creates a luminous “rainbow” look far superior to metallic ink, while rose gold foil creates a warmth that radiates. They leave an indelible impression as you network, thanks to the tear-resistant Soft Touch lamination. Out-of-the-ordinary business card printing makes it easy to stay memorable long after the meetings, conferences and trade shows.

Offline Outreach

For a tried-and-tested design, our standard Business Cards do the trick. With a wide variety of paper stocks and inks to choose from, they offer your corporate contacts a look and feel they’ve come to know.

Mike Laing, partner and director of MAWBY Sparkling Wines, needed unique business cards that provided brand clarity for his audience. “We rebranded a year ago and launched MAWBY. We previously had three separate brands and that was confusing us and our customers,” he said. “The [new] logo echoes our former logo with a fresh look and clean design.” With the help of standard Business Cards, Laing created a simple, smart marketing message.


When it comes to promoting, your business cards do more heavy-lifting than you might think. Luckily, Business Card Magnets make an impression that sticks. Your card attracts attention on filing cabinets and refrigerators with our online printing services like black or full-color ink, custom sizes and UV coating options. Plus, they’re easy to share with customers, vendors and prospective clients or to include in sales kits and conference collateral.

Effective Ideas

Coating and lamination make an impact the second you hand out your card. Lamination offers tear-resistant protection while coatings like high-sheen Ultra Gloss UV and subtle Flat Matte UV grab all the attention. Our favorite? Soft Touch laminate. Its unbeatable look and feel is featured on all of our foil business cards and as an option for standard or Premium Business Cards.

Design details like this can affect engagement and result in customer growth. Take it from Rylan Hayes, co-founder of Element Ring Co. “We love the way our business cards turned out. We received a bunch of positive feedback regarding the texture and feel of the cards in person. Truly next level!”

Speaking of engagement, the digital laser cutting feature falls into the “Whoa, let me see that!” category. It adds dimension to your cards with custom logos, patterns and accents that truly leave a mark. You can also play with rounded corners, try a fold so you have more room for essential information and utilize Versions to incorporate different designs or names on cards with the same specs. And of course, all of our business cards can be designed in custom sizes – how often do you see one that’s square or circular? Talk about standing out.


As a small yet integral part of your marketing strategy, business cards need to make a statement about you and your brand or services. And since every business is different, Smartpress is the online printer offering a wide variety of formats that fit your needs, no matter which one you choose.
