Name card finishing options are an integral part of your name card design. Since name card printing can be termed as an art in itself, there has been a wide variety of name card finishing options made available to the market since the beginning to now. It’s inevitable that clients can find themselves spoiled for choice, so here’s some recommendations for name card finishing options you can’t miss.
- Foil stamping
Foil stamped name cards are created by using a heated die to press different coloured foil onto the name card to create different patterns, enhance texture and draw emphasis on certain aspects of your card. If your name card design is focused heavily on typography or your logo, then this is the right finishing option for you.
- Die cutting
Apart from the conventional rectangular shape standard name cards come in, people are now starting to apply creativity even in the shapes their name cards come in. Die cutting refers to the process of creating and cutting your name cards into different assorted shapes according to what the corporation requires. Don’t be afraid to experiment with die cutting as when employed effectively, it can help you increase customer engagement with interactivity.
There are numerous types of varnishing finishes that you can apply to your name card. They are essentially a coating for your name card that can help prevent wear and tear, make your name card water resistant, improve the attractiveness of it and more! If you want a richer coloured and attractive sheen to your name cards, consider giving varnishing a try.
Embossing is another finishing option you can choose if you want certain elements to ‘pop’ out of your name card and give it a 3D effect so it seems to be protruding out of your name card material. It is a good finishing option to choose if you are looking for interactive and interesting textured name cards.
Despite their similar sounding names, debossing can be considered the opposite of embossing since it is pressing in instead of pushing out. Much like embossing, it also gives you a 3D kind of effect.
Each one of these name card finishing options bring a different set of looks to the table so why not experiment with all of them both separately and with a combination to discover the name card meant for you?
