Paper Weights of Business Cards

How do I figure out what paper weight is right for my business cards?

Pound vs. Point

Common Business Card Weights Compared (# vs. pt.)
Cover Weight In LBS. 80# 90# 100# 105# 114# 120# 130#
Point System 9.5pt 10pt 11pt 13pt 14pt 15pt 16pt

Paper Weights

Paper is not all created equal and neither is the weight of a business card. For business cards, there are two standard weights of paper, Point (pt) and Pound (#).

Business cards with a 14pt paper weight are probably the most common but if you want to have a slightly firmer and thicker card you could move up to 16pt. It all depends on how you

want your card to feel.

Finishes of Business Cards

What is the best choice for my business's brand?

Finishes of Paper

A paper with a shiny coating can help protect your cards and provide a more professional appeal to the final product. A coating also adds contrast to your brand’s colors and gives bright solid colors a beautifully lustrous appearance. It is all a matter of preference of what you want your cards to look like, contact us today to get started!

In some cases an uncoated card can be the better choice. If your business’s color scheme is predominately black or a very dark color, an uncoated option might look better. An uncoated card also gives you an option to write on them without having the ink smear.
