Create cards that stand out in any type of light.
When you’re interacting with potential customers, little details can make all the difference. Go with our glossy business cards (also known as gloss business cards or UV business cards) to make your company – and your first meeting – more memorable. The extra shine makes photos or images look especially vibrant and sharp. And the light-catching finish means glossy business cards will stand out at events, on counters and when you’re handing them out.
Tips for Glossy Business Cards
• Include vibrant colors to maximize the glossy effect.

• For readability, don’t display your cards directly under bright lights.
• Standard (3.5" x 2"): The traditional size and shape – fits in any holder.
• Square (2.5" x 2.5"): Uniquely shaped cards that look and feel a cut above.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How thick is glossy business card paper?
A: Standard is 14pt (equal to .014 of an inch) and premium is 16pt (equal to .016 of an inch). Each point (pt) is equal to .001 of an inch, to give you a frame of reference.
Q: Are gloss business cards glossy on both sides?
A: No, the backs have a silk-coated finish, which is non-reflective and has a very smooth feel.
Q: Can I write on glossy business cards?
A: Yes, but we’d recommend using a permanent marker pen for the best results. A regular ballpoint pen won’t work very well.
Q: Can I add foil accents or embossed gloss to these cards?
A: You can add foil accents to your design (which complement the gloss very well), but embossed gloss is not available.
Q: Do you offer square glossy business cards or glossy business cards with rounded corners?
A: Yes, we offer both! Just choose from the options near the top of the page.
Q: Are there templates I can use for my information?
A: We offer hundreds of design templates, including glossy business cards for pet care professionals, and even glossy business cards for yoga studios.
