Uncoated Business Cards
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - 5/5 Google Reviews
Save on print costs with these inexpensive business cards, presented on a simple, yet stylish 400gsm uncoated stock. Perfect to write on, this material is great for promotional cards, or member cards for stamping.
Because it's not coated with one of our higher-end finishes – such as matt or gloss – our uncoated business cards are stamp and pen-friendly (and punch-friendly if you prefer to make holes).
They're designed to absorb ink more quickly, and that means any marks or stamps you add won't leave a smudge in your customers' hands or pockets.

A uncoated business card is a type of business card that has no glossy or matte finish applied to the surface. Instead, the card has a natural, raw paper texture that makes it ideal for writing on or stamping.
Uncoated business cards are best used in situations where a more casual or organic feel is desired. They are also ideal for businesses or individuals who want to make a more eco-friendly statement, as uncoated cards are made from a more sustainable and recyclable material than coated cards.
Here are a few scenarios where uncoated business cards may be the best choice:
Creative fields: Uncoated business cards are a popular choice for artists, designers, and other creatives, as they give off a more organic and handmade vibe.
Eco-conscious businesses: If your business values sustainability and environmentally-friendly practices, uncoated business cards can help you convey that message to your customers.
Informal events: Uncoated business cards are a great option for networking events, trade shows, or other informal gatherings where a more relaxed and approachable vibe is desired.
Handwritten information: If you need to add personal notes or handwritten information to your business cards, an uncoated card is a better choice as the surface is easy to write on.
Overall, uncoated business cards are a versatile and practical option that can be used in a variety of situations. Whether you're looking for a more creative, eco-friendly, or informal solution, uncoated business cards can help you make a memorable and lasting impression on your customers.

We can print directly from most popular PC and Mac file formats, including:
• PDFs (preferred)
• JPEGs (preferred)
If your artwork contains more than one page/side, it would be great if you could provide a single PDF file containing all pages in the correct order. But, if you're unable to supply a single file, please ensure your filenames clearly state which order the pages are to be printed. Appending the filename with "front", "back" or the number of the page will let us know which order the pages should be printed.
To upload your artwork, add the product to your basket and then drag and drop your files into our file uploader. Alternatively, you can supply your artwork to us at any time via WeTransfer. On receipt, our printing egg-heads will double check your files and let you know if they spot any problems.
Before sending us your artwork, please note that a photograph or other pixel-based image needs a resolution of just 72 dpi (dots per inch) to display correctly on screen. However, our high resolution printing process requires images of around 300dpi. Anything less may print with a pixelated 'jaggy' look. Please check the resolution of your images carefully... just because they look good on screen doesn't mean they'll print properly!
Not to worry though. If we spot anything which could affect the quality of your order, we will be in touch to let you know about the issue before pressing ahead.
If you're a dab hand at creating artwork and are comfortable adding 3mm bleed and crop marks then great. If all this sounds like Double Dutch then don't worry, our talented designers will handle this for you.
All we ask is that you supply the artwork in CMYK and keep all important elements of your design at least 3mm away from the edge of your artwork (we call this our "safe zone"). Although we use state-of-the-art equipment, some movement is inherent within all printing processes. If important elements of your design are placed too close to the edge of the paper, not only will it look unprofessional, but there's a chance they may get trimmed off. That doesn't mean you can't extend a background image or colour to the very edge of your artwork, that's fine of course. But please don't place something vital like your contact details too near the edge of the sheet.
