OFFSET BUSINESS CARDS | NYC
Offset Printing is the industry standard for professional business cards. Using the PMS / Pantone color system, we are able to produce thousands of different ink colors by mixing each color individually. Sharp type at small sizes, duotones, gradients, multi-color logos and color floods are all within the scope of offset printing. Offset business cards are the most popular type of custom business card and they are the industry standard for print quality. Publicide’s in-house printing capabilities allow for rush production and standard production schedules depending on your needs.
Offset business cards can print on smooth, textured, coated and uncoated papers up to 130# thickness—even thicker if we include duplexing to double thickness after printing. Unlike letterpress, foil stamping and embossing, the offset print process results in a smooth ink lay-down with no texture besides the paper. This process is great for detailed designs with small type and line work. Printing floods of color is also a great way to match background paper color if we aren’t able to find an exact match in a pre-made paper.
Finally, the most custom use for the offset press is in printing metallic, fluorescent and pastel colors. Metallic inks print great on black and other dark colored papers, creating contrast and readability which is impossible with standard inks. Our black business cards can get pretty elaborate but even a single process, silver offset ink on black paper, looks very unique and will score a lot of attention to your card.
