8 Unique Business Card Papers – Japan Print

Today’s printing industry is so well commercialized and efficient that seeing different business card papers is a bit complicated. In most cases, you see the same type of paper on everyone’s business cards. However, there are hundreds of different papers to choose from, and most of them are found in printing companies that offer personalized assistance. 

So, if you’d like to see some different and interesting papers, continue reading the blog!

Suede Business Cards

Suede Business Cards NYC

Elegant, sophisticated, and unforgettable. The words that best describe suede business cards. When touched, these cards make a perfect first impression, as their smooth texture is very distinctive. This card has a matte finish and looks great with any pattern or color.

However, appearance is not the only thing that makes them stand out from other papers and finishes. In addition, its lamination increases the thickness of the card, making it much more resistant and durable.

What to consider: Printing suede business cards is a delicate process. It takes longer than printing average business cards because they have to be laminated after printing the information.

Mohawk Superfine Eggshell Business Cards

Mohawk Eggshell Business Cards NYC

Our most preferred paper offers a time-honored look that is suitable for any person or corporation. The Mohawk Superfine Eggshell paper has excellent color absorbent capabilities and an unrivaled premium texture. We have a special bond with this paper because it resembles old Japanese papers.

In fact, this paper is one of the most popular ones in Japan, and many of our customers love it as well. One of the reasons this paper got so popular among our clients is because we can print same-day business cards with it because of its properties

What to consider: Since mohawk superfine eggshell paper is uncoated, you cannot print finishes like spot UV or Raised Foil on it. However, there are other printing finishes you can print like raised ink, letterpress, painted edges, and more.

Silk Business Cards

Silk business cards are one of our newer product offerings. These business cards are notable for their silky smooth feel and durability. In addition, they have a modern look to them that makes them popular within the tech community. An excellent way to describe a silk business card would be to imagine a business card wrapped in soft plastic. That description also happens to be an accurate depiction of their actual composition.

One of the greatest things about this business card is that we mean it when we say it is durable. These business cards can resist most conditions, and we have seen cases in which they get wet and look perfect afterwards. Please don’t do it, though.

What to consider: Like suede business cards, silk laminated business cards also take longer to produce than regular business cards because of their printing process. If you’re in a hurry, we recommend printing uncoated business cards like mohawk eggshell business cards or other ones we will disclose shortly.

Linen Business Cards

Linen Business Cards NYC

Linen Business Cards has a cross-striped texture that makes it look like woven linen. If you can’t find the right look for your business card, printing on linen paper can give your business cards an eye-catching, refined, and professional appearance. 

Linen business cards are uncoated paper, so that means you can get them printed a lot sooner than laminated options. You can print these business cards with three different finishes: painted edges, raised ink, and foil stamping.

What to consider: Unless you print these business cards in a thicker-than-average weight, you will find that they bend a lot easier than other options with the same weight due to their texture. Although this hasn’t been a problem for our clients, it is definitely something to consider.

Matte Coated Business Cards

Matte Coated Business Cards NYC

Our Matte Coated business card offers a clean and minimal look, as well as having the most affordable price of all our cards. Regardless of their price, our Matte Coated business cards are quite durable and of high quality.

Apart from being our most economical business card, they are a coated option that doesn’t require lamination after printing. This means you can also receive the business cards much sooner than other ones.

What to consider: As we stated at the beginning of the blog, commercial printing has popularized many papers, and the matte-coated one is the most common. Although it is a cost-effective, good, and durable paper, it might not be the best option if you want to stand out from the crowd.

Laid Business Cards

Laid Business Cards NYC

We are one of the few printing companies that can still offer laid business cards in NYC. Because this paper is very old and was primarily used for old printing techniques, many printers stopped offering it due to its complexity. However, we are happy to put in the extra effort so that you and your company can benefit from this unique paper.

Apart from their elegant and traditional look, one of the most significant benefits of laid business cards is that they are a rare sight to behold.

What to consider: When you print laid business cards, we recommend you ask your printer to position the laid marks vertically and not horizontally, as sometimes they get a little tilted and make the business card look unbalanced. 

Let’s look at the next paper.

Cotton Business Cards

Cotton Business Card NYC

If you want to stand out from your competition with a unique business card, our line of cotton business cards is the right choice. They are elegant, have an uncoated finish, and a texture that feels soft to the touch, making them genuinely memorable cards.

Cotton business cards offer many benefits. Among the most useful ones you can find that they are very good color retainers and that their soft texture is perfect for printing techniques like letterpress or embossing.

What to consider: Due to their softness, cotton business cards can be more fragile than the average card, so it isn’t the best option if you need your business card to be as durable as possible. Apart from that, these business cards are a perfect fit for many people and companies.

Plastic Business Cards

Plastic business cards are a relative newcomer to the business card scene. They are notable for their industrial durability and their multiple levels of transparencies. In addition, these unique business cards allow for some very unconventional designs, some of which would not be possible with other materials. Although most printing equipment cannot handle the thick plastic sheets, we’ve taken special care to calibrate our machinery to work with many types of plastics.

Apart from having a unique business card for your business, plastic business cards are the most durable ones in the market.

What to consider: Since plastic business cards are harder than any other cards, all of them will have rounded corners to prevent people from getting hurt with them. We’re sure there is going to be a company that will help you print these with straight corners if you really need to, but we don’t recommend it because they can really hurt your customers. And no one wants that. 

That would be all for this blog. And we hope you find the ideal business card for your company!
