Business cards are an addition to the other quality printing services that LinxPrint offers. Providing a wide selection of stock and finishing options to meet all your needs, we are definitely not a one-size-fits-all facility. Everyone on the LinxPrint team treats each business card request as a unique and independent job. Below are a few examples of our printed work for your viewing pleasure!

Quick Specs

  • Standard Size: 3.5" x 2" (WxH). We would be glad to work with your custom sizing as well.
  • Quantity: 250, 500, 1,000, and up.
  • Turnaround Time: Within 48-hours (unless otherwise requested.)

Paper Stock Options

  • Coated

    When you are looking for a smooth finish, a coated stock gives you two looks to choose from: Gloss for a shiny look and Dull for a more matte presentation.

  • Uncoated

    A rough, porous type of paper for an extremely matte finish. There is an additional $15.00 fee to opt for this type of stock, but you have a choice between 100# weight or 130# heavier weight.

  • Single-sided Coating (C1S)

    When a completely coated or uncoated stock does not meet your needs, we offer a stock that is made of both - one side coated, the other side uncoated.

Additional custom finishing Options:

  • UV Varnish

    A surface treatment of liquid coating in which your cards are given an extreme gloss finish for a rich, luxurious look. UV Varnishing can be applied on one or both sides, but only on the entire surface.
  • Spot Gloss

    As the name suggests, gloss is applied to select spots of the business card design. This has the effect of highlighting and drawing attention to that part of the design, and also provides a neat texture variance on a single printed surface.
  • Embossing

    This technique creates a three-dimensional design. A custom die is used to push the paper up, leaving one side with raised texture and the other with an indent into the paper of the shape or form you have chosen to emboss.
  • Thermography (Raised Ink)

    A similar look to the embossing technique where it creates a three-dimensional design, but more subtle and without the result of one side being debossed (indented into the paper.)
  • Satin Lamination

    Provides a soft sheen and features glare-reducing qualities.
  • Round Corners

    A simple option to help you break away from common rectangular business cards. Opt to round from one to all four corners.


  • What is the difference between coated and uncoated stock?

    Coated stock has a thin layer of clay that provides a smooth (glossy or satin) finish, whereas the uncoated stock is a rougher, porous type of paper, displaying an extremely matte look.

  • What is your business card turnaround time?

    Business card printing goes through one of the fastest processes here, and upon receipt of a print-ready file, we could have your order ready within the same day. Please keep in mind that if your business cards go beyond printing, the timing for the additional finishing portion(s) of the job will extend the turnaround accordingly. We would also be happy to try to meet your specified turnaround upon request.

  • Can I order less than 250 cards?

    The setup and printing process allows us to print 250 cards efficiently. Anything less than 250 would still be priced the same.
