Business Cards Printing and Signs

Printing is a process for reproducing text and images, typically with ink on paper using a printing press. It is often carried out as a large-scale industrial process, and is an essential part of publishing and transaction printing.

The earliest form of printing was woodblock printing, with existing examples from China dating to before 220 A.D. and Egypt to the fourth century. Later developments in printing include the movable type, first developed by Bi Sheng in China, and the printing press, a more efficient printing process for western languages with their more limited alphabets, developed by Johannes Gutenberg in the fifteenth century.

AA Printing & Signs is a family run business specialized in printing, signs and mailbox. Highly qualified employee's means we save customers time as we meet their requirements professionally.

Professional employees means understanding to the customer's needs swiftly in most time saving way and most cost effective options. Knowledgeable employees means we can take care of our machine reducing down time to print and photo copy your brochures, flyers, business cards, and signs.

We print business cards to accommodate your needs:
we accommodate over night, next day and rush orders

The more the customers know us the more they admire us for business needs such invoices, notepads, note pads, letterheads, carbonless and NCR.

Usually we print business cards on 18pt glossy card stock which very thick. However, we can print the cards on matt finish cards. Both allow customers to write easily on them.

We set cheap prices in advance so customer know what to pay at the pickup time. Also, we provide proofs for the requested prints and signs before final productions

Our bindery depot is so sophisticated: we can bind cerlux, cerolux, spiral, perfect, book and wire. We can saddle stitch, with quality staples, your booklets without cracking your covers and prints.

History Business Cards

Business cards are printed on some form of card stock, the visual effect, method of printing, cost and other details varying according to cultural or organizational norms and personal preferences. The common weight of a business card varies some by location. Generally, business cards are printed on stock that is 350 g/m? (density), 45 kg (100 lb) (weight), or 12 pt (thickness).

High quality business cards without full-color photographs are normally printed using spot colors on sheet-fed offset printing presses. Some companies have gone so far as to trademark their spot colors (examples are UPS brown, Los Angeles Lakers' purple, and Tide's orange). If a business card logo is a single color and the type is another color, the process is considered two color. More spot colors can be added depending on the needs of the card. With the onset of digital printing, and batch printing, it is now cost effective to print business cards in full color.

To simulate the "raised-print" effect of printing with engraved plates, a less-expensive process called thermography was developed that uses the application of a plastic powder, which adheres to the wet ink. The cards are then passed through a heating unit, which melts the plastic onto the card. Spot UV varnish onto matte laminate can also have a similar effect.

Full color cards, or cards that use many colors, are printed on sheetfed presses as well; however, they use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) four-color printing process. Screens of each color overprinted on one another create a wide gamut of color. The downside to this printing method is that screened colors if examined closely will reveal tiny dots, whereas spot color cards are printed solid in most cases. Spot colors should be used for simple cards with line art or non-black type that is smaller than 5 points.

Some terminology in reference to full-color printing:

4/0 - Full Color Front / No Print On Back
4/1 - Full Color Front / One color On reverse
4/4 - Full Color Front / Full Color Back
These names are pronounced as "four over zero," "four over one," or in some cases "four over four".

A business card can also be coated with a UV glossy coat (offset-uv printing). The coat is applied just like another ink using an additional unit on a sheetfed press. That being said, UV coats can also be applied as a spot coating - meaning areas can be coated, and other areas can be left uncoated. This creates additional design potential.

Business cards can also be printed with a digital copier, which uses toner fused onto the surface of the card, however many modern printing firms instead utilise high end "Digital Presses," now distinct from office copiers, which range from light production units such as the Bizhub 5500 from Konica Minolta, to state of the art units such as the latest HP Indigo Digital Presses.

While some of the older office copiers may have had problems running heavy business card stock, the newest digital presses can print on stock as heavy as 407 g/m2 (150# cover stock),[1] and special substrates such as polypropylene. Available in both sheet-fed and web-fed models, many modern digital presses can emulate Pantone spot colours, print in up to seven colours in one pass, and some even contain embedded spectrophotometers and air-assisted feeding systems.

UV coats, and other coatings such as Aqueous Coatings are used to speed manufacturing of the cards. Cards that are not dry will "offset" which means the ink from the front of one card will end up on the back of the next one. UV coatings are generally highly glossy but are more likely to fingerprint, while aqueous coatings are not noticeable but increase the life of the card. It is possible to use a dull aqueous coating on uncoated stock and get some very durable uncoated cards, and using UV coating or plastic lamination can also be applied to thicken thin stocked cards and make them more durable as well.

When cards are designed, they are given bleeds if color extends to the edge of the finished cut size. (A bleed is the extension of printed lines or colors beyond the line where the paper it is printed on will be cut.) This is to help ensure that the paper will cut without white edges due to very small differences in where the blade cuts the cards, and it is almost impossible to cut the cards properly without. Just being a hair off can result in white lines, and the blade itself will pull the paper while cutting. The image on the paper can also shift from page to page which is called a bounce, which is generally off by a hairline on an offset press, but can be quite large on lower end equipment such as a copier or a duplicator press. Bleeds are typically an extra 3.175 (1/8) to 6.35 mm (1/4 in) to all sides of the card.


Bleed size: 95.25 ? 57.15 mm (3.75 ? 2.25 in) (1/8 in bleeds)
Standard cut size: 89 ? 51 mm (3.5 ? 2 in)


Bleed size: 91 ? 61 mm (3.58 ? 2.40 in)
Standard cut size: 85 ? 55 mm (3.35 ? 2.17 in)
Fold-over or "tent" cards, and side fold cards are popular as well. Generally these cards will fold to the standard size.

For non-English locales, cards can also be printed with English on one side and a local non-English language on the other.
