Hi and welcome to another installment of InfluenceGraphics University.
Today we're going to talk about something that everyone in NewYork needs – business cards.
If there is one printed product that you just can't be without,it's a business card! Business cards contain all the pertinent contact information thatyour business associates, customers and suppliers need in order to conduct business with you.
If you don't have a business card, you're not going to be taken seriously, especiallyhere in the Big Apple.
Your business card is going to represent youlong after it's exchanged hands.
So you really want your business card to reflect the qualityand style of your business.
That's one reason why it's important to select a high qualitybusiness card printer that will offer you the most printing options and make your businesscards something that you're proud to hand out!Business cards traditionally come in the standard size of 2 inches x 3-1/2 inches and are commonlyprinted on 100# or 120# card stock.
Some clients like their business cards to stand out fromthe crowd by rounding the corners, die cutting them into shapes, having an odd sized card,embossing their logo onto the cards, you name it, everyone wants a business card that getsnoticed.
Some of the other options that are often requested are laminating the businesscard or adding a UV coating to protect the card.

No more obsolescent business cardssitting on a dusty shelf somewhere.
If you're interested to see how business cardsare actually created we've put together this video showing you the process.
Since business cards are small we gang up or "impose" multiple copies of your businesscard onto one press sheet.
The pressman prints one sheet to check the quality and color andthen prints the full batch.
Once the cards are printed they are broughtto a machine that slits and trims them into individual cards.
When the images were imposedregistration marks were added to the press sheets which allows the machine to know theexact dimensions of the business card.
The machine automatically adjusts the cuttingblades to the correct width and pulls the press sheets into the machine and slits andtrims them to the correct size and come out the other end.
The operator does a final qualitycheck of the cards and uses a digital scale to count the cards.
The business cards areboxed, shrink wrapped and ready for pick up or delivery.
Well that concludes this segment on businesscards.
