One of the most commonly used finishes for a business card is varnish. Most of the business cards in this modern world are finished with a varnish which gives them a clear glow and also increases the life of the card by avoiding the dangers of water and tear.
Now days, people are bored with the typical rectangular shaped business cards. This is why die-cutting is becoming a famous technique in card finish. Die cutting refers to cutting of a card in a desired shape. This reflects the message and information more clearly. You can cut your card in any shape according to the need of your business.
Another type of finish is the folding and all of you might be familiar with the term “folding”. This helps in two ways. It gives you an extra space for content and it adds a little uniqueness to your final product.
The pressing of content or design into a card using heat without using any foil or ink is called as embossing. By this the print comes out of the card and gives a beautiful view. This gives your card a unique texture.
The opposite of embossing is e-bossing where the print is depressed. It gives the same feel as embossing. The only difference is that the content in this finish is pressed inside rather than popping out.
The finishing options mentioned above will give your cards an extra edge and will set your card and your business apart from others. Following are some examples of finishing touches in business cards.
