Zazzle's Skinny Business Card Options
The skinny business card is a 1 x 3 inch card that allows you to condense information. These style business cards have become more popular over the past three years due to several factors. Being small, the cards take less time to design and saves on printing ink costs. The cards are also easy to store and pass around. And they are different enough from the standard sized business cards of 2 x 3.5 inches to make them more noticeable.
Zazzle offers two ways to create the look of your business card through templates or by designing your own. Under the template business card graphics, they offer twenty-four different style categories. Within each category, there is a varied selection of skinny card sized templates. For instance, under the Animal Business Cards, they carry a total of 2,690 templates with 50% of those being of the skinny card size. The full category list of skinny card template designs are as follows:
- Social Net
The whole process of using an existing template for your skinny business card is simple. On the left-hand side of the screen, Zazzle lets you type in the information that will be on the card so that each template that is looked at can be previewed first before ordering a set. Once a card template is chosen there are more design options to consider with the offer of free double sided printing, full-color printing and eight different types of card stock for printing to chose from. Zazzle will also provide a free skinny business card holder to help you quickly hand out each card.
If none of the templates that they carry fit your needs, you can design your own style right on their site. Here, when you create your style card, you can choose to offer your design to other Zazzle users by making it public. You can also choose to keep your design private and not allow what you have created to be used by other members.
