A true classic never goes out of style – a point well proven by matte business cards. This paper stock continues to be among our most popular year after year, and it’s easy to see why: The shine-free paper absorbs more ink, making it a great option for big, colourful designs.

Ready to create your matte card? Start by exploring our assortment of full-colour designs. (If you have your own design already, you can use our easy upload.) After you’ve found a favourite template, make it yours by adding all your custom details. Then pick your paper weight and let us take care of the rest. Your cards will arrive looking polished, professional and ready to get noticed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Different paper stocks best complement certain kinds of designs. Matte paper is an especially good choice if your design features vibrant designs with a lot of ink – the paper absorbs the ink especially well, so your design will look all the more vibrant and rich. If your design uses very crisp, fine lines, you may want to consider another paper stock, as fine lines can sometimes bleed.

Our matte cards come in two paper thicknesses – standard (300 gsm) and premium (360 gsm). Each paper thickness features a silk-coated front and back. We typically recommend standard matte cards for high-volume distribution – trade shows, events or package inserts. For more personal, one-on-one interactions, we’d recommend our premium paper.

Yes. When you choose our standard card shape, you have the option of crisp, 90-degree corners or 5 mm rounded corners.

For most people, choosing among our shapes – standard, square and slim – is a matter of preference. That said, there are a few things you can consider pick a card size that matches your business personality. Standard cards (91 x 55 mm) are the traditional and most familiar, and well complement timeless, classic card designs. Square cards (65 x 65 mm) are fresh and bold, especially popular among creative professionals interested in conveying an innovative, edgy style.

Yes. You can choose from our one or two-sided printing options.

Our brilliant finishes are special upgrades that add more visual interest to your card design. Our spot UV applies raised gloss to specific areas of your design. Please note that these finishes are applied to the front of card designs only.

Not happy

Submitted 8 Mar 2021 By Quel From Christchurch

want to use these as my business cards but because they are cut off on one side it looks silly. It is not like that in the template I uploaded or the example template printed.

We appreciate your review submission and sorry to hear that your business cards were printed in an unsatisfactory manner. We’ll be sure to have your feedback passed on to the appropriate team to be reviewed. - JS

Poor reading of instructions

Submitted 21 Jan 2021 By Gibbo From Christchurch

I ordered matte business cards and the have arrived glossy. This is not the first time this has happened and it took me 3 attempts and a phone call last time to get the correct cards. We use the cards for 6 stamp promo cards and they need to be matte. I have checked my order and it says we ordered matte. very dissapointing to happen again. all other work provided is always of a good standard
