Hand printed in a choice of styles and on luxurious 100% cotton card stock (Colour: pure Flourescent White).

Two thicknesses are available:
- 300gsm
- 600gsm

We can work together on a design, or you can describe the look you want and leave it to me (you'll get a proof to sign off). If you have usable artwork, I can print your logo as part of the design.

These cards are printed by hand on a letterpress printing press; designed digitally and printed with a custom made block. The letterpress printing method used means that you achieve an impression on the card (if desired) that you cannot get from digital forms of printing.

Please note: I do not do double sided business cards or hotfoiling.

Minimum order - 200 business cards * Full pricing table at mapletea.co.uk/pricing * Additional print colours cost extra
