Business Cards Brisbane – Printing & Graphic Design
Business Card Printing – Brisbane, Logan QLD Australia.
As part of our branding solution, we would love to design and print the business cards for your Brisbane based business. We can offer a range of different print options such as CMYK and spot colour PMS printing and a variety of paper stocks /finishing options.
Our product range includes all marketing material and business stationary products like Letterheads, Stickers, Magnets, Brochures, Calendars, Invoice books etc.
Our production team have the equipment for both digital and traditional offset printing, in CMYK full colour or PMS spot colour. We print regular group runs of CMYK business cards, which allows us to offer fantastic print quality, extremely competitive pricing and very fast production times. Choose whether your business card is gloss or matt cello glaze, on 1 or 2 sides.
We accept print ready artwork files or our creative team can take care of any artwork / graphic design requirements you may have. We can work with you to produce a creative brief for our designer and email a proof to you for review, or we can work with your existing logos or artwork files to make the required text or layout changes. We can re-create an artwork file from scratch to match your existing branding for brochures & flyers, even if you don’t have access to the print ready or working files.
Please only create your own print ready artwork if you have experience with pre-press file preparation and have the necessary software (The Adobe Illustrator suite is ideal in most cases). Most of the risk for potential production issues actually comes from the artwork file and the manner in which it was prepared for printing or was made ‘print ready’.
Please don’t scrimp on your design, as poorly madefiles can lead to print issues – we cannot take responsibility for any production issues that are caused by artwork we did not create ourselves. We prefer to create our own artwork files, so that we can guarantee piece of mind for our customers and ensure that your branding is consistent across all marketing platforms.
Our requirements for print ready artwork & design files:
- PDF file – 300dpi at true size
- Trim marks and 3mm bleed at all edges
- Convert all fonts to shapes/curves or outlines
- Flatten all effects and embed all images
- Standard size for business cards: 90 x 54mm
- Custom sizes are also available – let us know what size you need
Certain colours and designs are not appropriate for CMYK printing & will require PMS spot colour or a combination of CMYK and PMS. If you have existing artwork, please email our director Ryan Smith on [email protected] and attach a copy of your artwork file. Our artwork & design team will examine your artwork file and recommend which type of printing is most suitable. We can then provide a quotation clearly showing your different manufacturing options and give our advise on which may be most suitable for your requirements.
As fantastic as CMYK can be in most cases, it isn’t always suitable. There are certain types of designs and artwork files that will require PMS spot colour printing. CMYK does have it’s limitations – although it does offer an unlimited number of colours and vibrant full colour images. Full colour printing can not offer guaranteed colour matching, as can be offered with spot colour PMS printing.
There are also certain colours that can not be achieved with CMYK, such as deep blues, vibrant oranges, metallic colours (silver or gold etc) and fluro colours. Exact colour matching also can not be offered with CMYK – If you require an exact colour match, please let us know in your initial inquiry. In these cases we recommend that your order should be printed in spot colour.
Our manufacturing team also offer a full range of finishing options for business cards Logan, such as varnishing, cello glazing, die cutting, custom sizes, laminating, spot UV gloss, slimline cards etc. You can use these different finishing styles to make your business cards stand out from the crowd without breaking the bank.
Gloss cello glaze can be great to accentuate photos and images but matt cello has become a much more popular finishing options for business cards in Queensland. I have noticed this year that around 90% of the bus cards we printed have been finished with a matt cello glaze. The matt finish cuts out glare and provides a smooth and professional look, whilst also protecting the cards from moisture, wear & tear.
We have a library of existing die knives in a range of shapes and sizes, such as houses (magnet printing for real estate agents), teeth (for dentists), cars (for mechanics and car wash businesses), feet (for shoe shops), bullet shapes etc. We can create a custom die-knife in any size or shape and we can hold it in stock for future orders. Die-cutting can be a cost effective point of difference, especially if you are ordering a large quantity or making regular orders – Repeat orders become cheaper once the die form is held in stock.
Spot UV gloss coating can also be an effective way to make your cards more eye catching, when done properly. Simply spot UV varnishing over the top of your logo or image is not the most effective way to use this extra process – The effect is much more eye catching when you use the spot UV varnish to CREATE an image against a dark background. This method creates a much more subtle and eye catching effect. Remember when it comes to artwork and graphic design – Subtlety is the ultimate sophistication!
