Thick business cards give the impression of strength and longevity. If you want to stand out and leave a lasting impression, then thick business cards are a good investment for your marketing efforts. However, a thick but boring business card will not help in terms of marketing either. There has been a trend where thick business cards are painted with bright colors to make them pop up. I am referring to what printers call as edge painting or edge coloring. If you still haven’t seen one, then this is your chance to get yourself familiar about edge painting. Below, we are showcasing the most beautiful and elegant thick business cards with edge painting. To know more about each business card, such as the thickness of the card stock used, the printing process, the designer, so on and so forth, click on the text link found below each preview image.
