It’s great to be square!
As unique and individual as you are, square business cards are not only eye-catching, but easy to store in a pocket, wallet or phone case.
Perfect for a big logo or business name on one side and logo plus details on the other, a custom square business card says you want your business to be seen.
Attract clients by communicating your business brand in style. Choose from hi-bulk or deluxe card stock and add a gloss, matt celloglaze or velvet laminate. Printing is full colour, single or double sided, with excellent colour reproduction and crisp detail.
You can order as few as 250 or as many as 5000, which makes them a great low-cost marketing tool.
Square business cards are a good match for businesses who service a niche and want to stand out from the crowd. Send us your print-ready artwork or talk to our designers who love bringing your unique business card ideas to life.
A good business card is a communication and marketing tool and helps convey the brand identity of your business. It is a point of contact and connection for new customers and clients, an appointment card and a catalyst for repeat business.
We know what makes a good business card, and want to make sure you get it right the first time with Print Storm’s professional business card printing, delivered Australia-wide.
Business card dimensions
Square business cards come in two sizes and shapes:
- 54mmm x 54mm
- 65mm x 65mm with rounded corners
Paper (or paper stock) used in commercial printing has a language all its own! The weight of paper is measured in gsm, or grams per square metre. As a guide, copy paper is 80gsm, gloss or matt brochure paper is commonly 150gsm and business cards are printed on 300gsm and upwards card stock or board.
We print our square business cards on 350gsm high bulk artboard or 450gsm deluxe artboard. These boards are premium quality, cost effective and provide the best result for full colour printing and specialised finishes. Matt or gloss celloglazing, the application of a type of thin film, gives the card a very smooth or glossy finish and protects the printed surface. Velvet laminate does the same and feels just like...velvet!
A well-designed good looking business card is much more likely to be kept. It will stand out from the crowd and communicate quality at a glance, making it a valuable promotional tool. This is also a smart reason for having a double sided card. A smaller logo and details on one side with a larger logo on the other means your business is communicating its brand, no matter which way up it is seen.
Just as important is to present a consistent look across all your stationery and other printed resources. Whether it’s time for an upgrade or a new look, we’re experts at design and can even help you come up with a branding statement for your business.
A brief history of the business card
In 17th century Europe and England, social ‘calling cards’ were all the rage. However, Chinese traders, merchants and businessmen had been using ‘trade cards’ since the 15th century. Over the 18th and 19th centuries in the West, calling cards tended more and more to be used for purely social purposes.
By the 1950s a commercially-focussed calling card had become what we now know as business cards. In all cases, small cards have been a way of communicating, keeping a record of contacts and setting up meetings for personal and professional opportunity.
