Business Card Buyer's Guide
Our inclusive comparison grid and our reviews of business card printing services will help you determine the business card printing service for your needs. Below, we listed the five simple steps you should take to ensure you get the most
1. Analyze Your Business Card Needs
Evaluate how many cards you need, how soon you need them and how much you’re willing to pay for card stock, card finish and other features. Business card printing services more or less work the same way: You design your card using their online tools (or have one designed by a graphic designer). You select your card size, stock, finish and/or special materials. You select your shipping and pay for the cards.
The only differences are what features/ options are available and what price you have to pay to get them. Also, you can typically receive your cards in 8-12 days, but some services have faster shipping options. It’s important to have a good idea of what you want before you buy.

For those who want to design and edit their own cards, business card printing services allow customers to use online design tools, which make building business cards a breeze. Some business card printing services even feature a full design team that can create a custom business card from scratch for customers who want unique, outside-the-box cards. The best part is that business cards created with these sites can cost as low as one penny per card.
Ordering business cards online offers more options than the average brick-and-mortar business card printer in terms of print materials, card finish and card stock, raised lettering and custom design. Plus, the turnaround on business cards designed online is typically much quicker. You’ll be able to get your cards in as few as three days.
Cheap business cards that are created using online printing services are used by a wide variety of people:
- Small business owners
- Conference/trade-show attendees
- Creative industries
- Retail industries
Online business card printing services are the best solution for entrepreneurs or small business owners who need quick, easy and low-cost way to create business cards in order to market themselves or their businesses.
