Most Popular Questions
What is a custom shape?
A custom shape is any product that is cut into a unique shape (or that is not a rectangle / square).
We have a collection of pre-made shapes for business cards, hang tags and gift card holders. If you would like to create your own shape, you can do this via a custom order. You will need to submit a Custom Quotation form in order to receive a quote from our Print Estimations team. Be sure to provide as much information (i.g. stock, coating, quantity, etc.) and to supply all necessary files, such as a dieline, to receive an accurate quote.
Please note that producing your own shape will cost more than ordering one of our pre-made shapes as there are added fees included to produce the order.
What is the best size for a circular business card?
There is no standard size for circular business cards – it is dependant on your needs and what you want your card to say. We offer several circular shapes as Pre-made shapes (in increments of 0.5" from 1" to 4" diameter).
Our recommended size for Circular Business cards is between 2" to 3.5" in diameter – with 3" generally being the most popular and practical.
Before ordering the size for your circular card, we recommend printing and testing the size first. You should also consider:
How will the card be used?
- How will you carry the business card?
- Who will receive your business card – and how will they carry/store it?
- How will it be displayed (on your desk)
- Does it need to fit a Business Card holder?
Certain larger sizes of circular cards may not fit into a standard wallet. A unique size and shape is a great way to make an impression and be memorable – but you also don't want a card that is impractical and ends up being discarded.
What content will be on the card?
While you want a circular card to be small enough to be practice, it also has to be large enough to fit the information that you want on the card at a legible size. It is a fine balance.
Some further considerations
- Smaller than 2" diameter and there might not be enough room to fit contact information
- Between 3" to 4" in diameter and your card may look like a drink coaster
- A 2" circular card would be the same height as a standard business card – so should easily fit into most wallets and holders (although a different shape)
Can I change the corners that are rounded?
For example if you ordered 1 corner rounded; it can be any of the four corners. Remember when setting up your design to take into consideration how the card is flipped; see: Orientation.
If you need to change the number of corners that are rounded, the configuration (such as 2 corner same-side to 2-corner adjacent) or corner radius, your order details will need to be changed. Please contact our Customer Service team if you need to change the details of your order.
The shaped card I want isn’t available for order
We can create almost any custom shape you would like, from small business card shapes to larger flyers, and even custom shaped posters!
We have a wide range of pre-made shapes available on our Shaped business cards page, but if you would like to create your own shape, you can do this via a custom order. You will need to submit a Custom Quotation form in order to receive a quote from our Print Estimations team. Be sure to provide as much information (i.g. stock, coating, quantity, etc.) and to supply all necessary files, such as a dieline, to receive an accurate quote.
What is a dieline?
A dieline is used as a guide to assist in proper file preparation for printed products that require die cutting. A dieline is never printed, so make sure to place it on a separate layer and to not export it with your artwork (unless you are providing a mockup file). Its main purpose is to indicate how your product will be cut and knowing this will allow you to decide how to design your finished piece.

Select Business Card Template:
Select File Format:
- Bleed Area
- Trim Area
- Safe Area
Bleed Area refers to images that extend to the very edges of a design. To prevent an unwanted white border from showing at the edge of your design, or for the design to appear slightly off-center, be sure to extend any background colors or design elements all the way to the edge of bleed (.125” past the trim on all four sides).
Trim Area refers to the amount of the image that will appear on your finished product. These areas will also be marked with ‘cut lines’ on your proof and are where we aim to cut your card.
Safety Area in most cases refers to 1/8 of an inch inside of the Trim Area. For thicker papers 20pt and up or wooden papers the Safety Area increases ¼ of an inch inside the Trim Area. we strongly recommend you keep important aspects of your design such as text and logos well inside of the Safety Area, otherwise, they may be cut off.
