Most business cards are paper, although there are lots of other options, from plastic and wood to metal and slate. Assuming you go with paper, you need to choose thickness, coating, color and weight. All of these can affect the price.

Special finishes can make your cards stand out. Metallic ink, foil blocking, and spot-UV are special finishes that are perfect for helping your cards stand out in a crowd. These details can maintain a simple, classic look but add a level of elegance and memorability to your business cards.
