What is a standard business card size?

By October 4, 2013 No Comments

We often get asked this question, and it does vary between different printing companies and even countries!

Unless otherwise requested, a standard business card from Creeds is sized at 85 mm wide x 55 mm high (see diagram below). This size is almost the same as a regular credit or debit card – meaning it will easily fit into a wallet or purse.


Business Card Preparation

If your design is to go up to the edge of the card, then we require an extra 3mm around the entire card, meaning your finished design must be supplied at 91 mm x 61 mm. This extra 3mm is commonly known as ‘bleed’ and is cut off to ensure a crisp, accurate edge once your card is finished.
