How To Choose The Best Business Card For You

With so many different business card sizes out there, you want to make sure that whether you pick the standard business card size or small cards instead, you’re choosing the dimensions that’s best for your design requirements.


The first thing you will need to consider as a company or a business is how you want your business card to be oriented – do you want it to be vertical or horizontal?

Horizontal, or landscape, is much more common across business cards around the country here in Australia. Still, the vertical or portrait style is also one of the latest products that services choose to take.

The size of your branding

Another thing to consider when you’re choosing business card sizes is the actual size of the marketing content that your brand uses. This includes the design of the logo that will go on the card, the quality of the image when it is a certain size and ensuring that it does not lose any of its resolution quality.

Finally, the layout that you will have to consider to accommodate the size of the business cards themselves.

Traditional vs modern

Some can’t beat the traditional dimensions of standard business cards – their shape is perfectly optimised for a wallet and most business card stand products.

Some are less fond of the standard business card and instead opt for one of the more modern, contemporary business cards that offer a more up-to-date look.

Big vs small

Again, this is dependent on personal preference, but standard business cards are a medium size that not every business here in Australia is a fan of. All of our business card options are customisable, however, and you can create different printing sizes for your card up to 90x5mm.

How Thick Are Space Print Business Cards?

We have a range of cards options range from 280GSM up to 450GSM paper stock, our Space Print business cards are designed to be durable and withstand daily wear and tear, especially if you have a size that allows you to fit the cards into and out of your wallet.



How big should a business card be?

A business card should be big enough to be read clearly, and that brand information can be read without eye-straining. Ideally, it should not be too small so that it can be kept safe and identified clearly as well.

Essentially, a business card can be any size, so far as it is not oddly proportioned, causes any readability or legibility issues and functions well as a business card should. At the end of the day, you want a good-sized card that allows you to easily extend your service to customers.

What information should be on a business card?

This may differ due to people’s preferences, but your business name, your address and immediate contact information, as well as your personal name and job title, should make up the main content of your cards.

The space for information will obviously vary upon design, but overall, this is the kind of basic information we suggest printing onto your cards.

What sizes of business cards fit in standard business card holders?

As per their name, the standard business card holder usually only fist the standard business card size of 90mm by 55mm wide.
