4 - Die / Laser Cutting Business Card Designs

In terms of business cards, die cutting has become much too commonplace. Now, graphic designers are breaking down the old format of designing and manufacturing business cards in innovative ways. Another printing technique is laser cutting, which involves the use of a laser to cut objects. It is a remarkable way to create the best possible business cards based on the preferences of the clients.

Process of Printing Laser-Cut Business Cards

A laser-etched business card combines two technologies:

  • Digital color printing
  • Laser cutting/engraving

To begin, print a standard visiting card job on a thick sheet of paper. Ivory stock with a thickness of more than 300 GSM will be an excellent option. Laminate the card to give it a matt or textured appearance. In addition to improving the card's tactile feel, lamination improves the card's thickness even more. The next move is to cut the printed card's logo or design. It’s then put into a laser cutting system to accomplish this. To prevent the paper from catching fire, the laser is fired at a very low power level.

A laser-cut business card often conveys the feeling of a perfectionist. It indicates that this individual will not accept a standard card and will spend extra money, time, and effort to obtain a customized laser monogrammed card, which is an excellent ice breaker.

5 - Matt / Shine- Glossy Laminated Business Card Designs

Matte lamination adds a strong protective layer to business cards. On the other hand, shining and glossy lamination is smoother, water-resistant, and silky. In any case, lamination acts as a 'protective shield' for the cards.

There are several different types of materials that can be used in the lamination process, each with their own unique characteristics, telling different stories, and creating different impressions that you must keep in mind to get the perfect business card.

Here are some lamination products that you might be interested in:


The glossy lamination is for those who want to show off their creative courage and ingenuity to the rest of the world. This material is ideal for more visual-heavy designs because the shine of the gloss accentuates and promotes more extensive use of colors and shapes. As a result, you can go very hard on the images to make a completely bright and vivid concoction.


The smooth and sleek surface has a slightly muted and subtle voice, but it is nonetheless strong. This material's power stems from the fact that it exudes beauty in its simplicity. As a result, this material is intended for sleek, minimalistic designs that aim to inspire respect with a few phrases.


It is neither fully matte nor completely glossy, but what distinguishes it is its smoother exterior and superior consistency due to the strength of bonding between the card's paper and the plastic of the laminate. This results in a long-lasting, resilient, and aesthetically pleasing finish with a premium feel.


This finishing is not your typical lamination, but it is still very exceptional. The embossing process significantly enhances the texture of your business card by organizing and elevating the sections that you want to highlight, such as names and logos, bringing the entire design to life. This finishing will undoubtedly make your business card stand out from the crowd.

Aside from aesthetic considerations, laminating the business card has practical advantages as well: Laminated business cards are less likely to tear and are more resistant to water. These characteristics, when combined, create a distinct impression that makes a laminated business card appear high-end.
