5 Unique Alternatives for Perfecting a Business Card

A business card is a representative of your business. I like to look at a business card as a female company representative.

Dress it, makeup it, and put it in the reception. Who would want to meet a rep who is ill-dressed? No one.
Finishing gives your business card rewards you top-notch value.

Business card finishes are layers of designs applied on a business card to enhance the beauty and quality of a business card.


However, we are going to discuss several ways of finishing a business card.

1) Matte
Spice up your business card with matte finishing. Matte is a popular coat that graces a business card with a smooth layer. It is contemporary.
A matte coat is easy to write on. Nevertheless, matte coating is pricier than other coatings. Matte also protects business cards against external factors like rain.

3)Embossed/ debossed
Embossed creates stunning business cards. Embossing is applied by heat pressing without the use of ink.

Debossing is the opposite. Debossing is indenting the surface of the card.
It is tempting not to run your fingers through the finish because it feels good.
