We design and print business cards. One of the ‘interesting’ things about business cards is the how they’re printed and then cut. The most common size of a business card is 3.5 x 2 inches. Once the customer agrees on the set up, we print the business cards as multiple ‘ups’ on a sheet of card stock.
So you can get 8-12 business cards on a single 8.5 x 11 inch sheet. If a customer wants 500 cards, we print 50 sheets.
We use an industrial guillotine cutter to cut them down into individual business cards.
The business cards are cut into smaller and smaller increments until we get individual cards.
