The first thing to talk about is that there is no single "standard Business Card size" for a Business Card.
Most countries will have a preferred average Business Card size (85 x 55 or 90 x 50 mm) which is more commonly used,
but that's not to say that other sizes aren't also used by businesses based in that country.
The "9x5" name reflects the standard size of Business Cards that is mainly used in almost all parts of the world.
This card size is shared by a large number of countries across the world, including
Argentina, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Israel, Kazakhstan, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia,
Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Latvia, Mexico and South Africa.
If You're in the USA or Canada, the standard size of a Business Card here is 89 by 55 mm.
Australia and New Zealand share the same Business Card dimensions, as do Northern European countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Taiwan also shares the same size, which is 90 mm by 55 mm.
The Japanese paper size is 91 mm by 55 mm. The standard Business Card size used in China, Hong Kong and Singapore is 90 mm by 54 mm.
The two-dimensional barcode was first intended for the automotive industry, it quickly
became popular worldwide and within a variety of fields along with the rise of the smartphone era.
In a nutshell, the QR code (Quick Response) is in fact a two-dimensional barcode with 100 times greater storage
capacity than a regular barcode.
The QR code is one of the most powerful marketing tools in the mobile sector. a Business Card with QR code is
an excellent way to connect the off-line and on-line worlds.
We are not a quick printing company (like in the Shopping Centers). We don't support the
Inkjet or Laser Proofs. Inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than offset printing.
This is due to the varying results from different output devices including inkjet printers, and laser devices.
We don't offer quick turnaround and low prices for printing to a “pleasing color” standard, because there
is no guarantee that your finished piece will match your printed sample.
Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image
is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface.
We use the 2540 dpi CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) four-color printing process.
This is an area we specialize. We can print both sides with heavy impression
and minimal show through by duplexing the sheets together after print. Printing two sides can make a
project more expensive because it is adding additional production time.
We recommend ordering a minimum of 250 cards, especially if you are doing something
complex. With the number of production steps usually involved in our card production, we highly recommend
you order more at first. With setup costs for each production step, it will cost less to order more at
first, rather than pay for all the production steps all over again.

You may want to set a small goal. Maybe you want to hand out 5 Business Cards
or 1 a day, or 7 a day.
Set a goal of a number that you know will generate you one prospect.
Well, if that takes you 20 Business Cards, then every time you hand out 20 Business Cards you can
expect the duplication of your system.
If it takes you 40 Business Cards, then that’s what it takes. If it only takes you 2 then you are really
good at convincing people at the first impression.
Whatever it takes, you start multiplying that over time and you will come up with a success formula
as far as how many people you need to invite, how many people you need to follow up on in order
for you to achieve your financial dreams.
