DIGITAL BUSINESS CARDS | NYC
Publicide offers regular and rush printing for full color digital business cards. CMYK Digital Printing is perfect for custom gradient artwork, full color photographs and complex patterns. In addition to full color work, the digital printing press runs variable data projects with ease. Digital business card printing is optimized for quantities from as few as 50 up to many 1000s. Since the digital press doesn’t need metal plates, it’s easy to switch the content to create many versions. Some of our commercial printing customers print 50 different names, with a quantity of 50 for each name!
Our New York City print shop provides CMYK printing on many different paper stocks. For uncoated/matte papers, we offer smooth, eggshell and vellum texture paper stock that imbues your business card design with a memorable, tactile feel. For matte and glossy coated cards, we offer gloss and dull laminating along with soft touch finishes. Standard thicknesses are from 80# (220 GSM / 10pt) Cover up to 120# (312 GSM / 16pt) Cover but we can easily double or triple these thicknesses with duplexing so just let us know what thickness you have in mind. A 240# business card is a perfect thickness for edge painting.
DIGITAL PRINT TECHNIQUES + CUSTOMIZATION
There are many types of digital print machines so we keep several in-house and can make recommendations for your artwork based on the final result you seek. Do you like glossy ink or matte? Are you worried about scuffing and durability of your cards? Do you need a color proof of your card before printing the whole run? These are all questions easily addressed with the right type of digital printing. Let us help you with budgeting and print managing to achieve the outcome you desire. We have many samples of previous work that can help guide you in the right direction.
Business cards can also be finished with additional custom business card printing techniques like foil stamping, embossing, metallic inks, and even edge painting to create a color all around the sides. See our custom business card samples for ideas on how to combine multiple processes into your print job for maximum impact.
PRICING + PRODUCTION NOTES
Pricing for digital business cards is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used in creating your order. More elaborate and custom print specs cost considerably more than standard orders, so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time varies with order complexity and our seasonal workload but our elastic schedule allows for very fast rush prints when required, though rush charges apply. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your digital business card project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed. We offer scheduled meetings at our Manhattan Print Shop but prefer to send preliminary pricing before scheduling so that we can all start off on the same page.
Some digital business card specs are available for rush printing service. To inquire about a rush digital card job, please email artwork, print specifications and desired completion date ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush. Rush digital printing is one of our specialties but please be aware that every moment counts in a rush print schedule. Some jobs will require additional shifts and weekend work to finish on time so the price can be significantly higher than jobs on a regular schedule.
