What does GSM mean?
GSM stands for Grams per Square Metre and refers to the thickness of the material. The higher the GSM, the heavier and thicker the paper. We offer Business Cards from 350gsm to 450gsm which is our heaviest standard business card, measuring approximately half a 0.5mm thick. But if you're after an even thicker business card, you should check out our Luxurious Triplex Business Cards.

What is the standard UK Business Card size?

In the UK, the majority of Business Cards measure 85 x 55mm, which is roughly the same size as a credit card. It's a classic size that's widely recognised, appreciated and fits in a purse/wallet.

Will my shiny laminated Business Cards look cheap?

Our Gloss Laminated cards are incredibly popular because they look fantastic. They exude a high-quality shine that elevates your brand image and leaves a lasting impression on anyone who receives them.

Are there any alternatives to 350gsm and 450gsm?

Definitely! At SM1 Print Studio, we understand that customisation is key. That's why we offer a range of paper weights for our premium Business Cards, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your needs. And if you're looking for something truly extraordinary, our triplex Business Cards are exceptionally thick and luxurious.

Why would I need gloss lamination?

Gloss lamination is not only stylish but also practical. By adding a protective layer to your cards, lamination makes them more durable. So, even if your cards experience some wear and tear, they will continue to look fresh and professional.

Can I have round corners on my Business Cards?

Absolutely! We believe in giving you the freedom to create unique and eye-catching business cards. You can choose an overall round corner option from our finishing types, or if you're feeling extra creative, you can select individual corners for a truly distinctive look.

Can laminated Business Cards be recycled?

Unfortunately, laminated paper cannot be easily recycled due to the lamination process. The paper and lamination cannot be separated effectively. However, we are always exploring eco-friendly alternatives and encourage responsible printing practices to minimise environmental impact.

What Our Customers Think of Us

Sam and the team at SM1 have been amazing both times we've used their printing services. The team has gone above and beyond to help us deliver our events, everyone we have dealt with has been very responsive and helpful. For our last event, Sam helped us sort out some bespoke boxes for a parliamentary hand-in, and found a cost effective and high quality solution for the project. Really appreciate the time and effort SM1 puts into helping their clients, and highly recommend to anyone looking to use their services!

I am extremely impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff. The job was, in my opinion, small; they printed my "Father if the Bride" speech, but it was done so well and I am so pleased with the result. I would recommend SM1 Print Studio to anyone needing any type of print job. Thank you so much.

Highly recommended and I'm so pleased we used SM1 prints for my daughters 1st birthday party decorations. Although it was a small job, Jay, the manager was so professional, friendly and produced beautiful quality prints for us within a very short time. Hassle and stress free from the initial phone call right to collecting the finished items. Great customer service and will definitely use again. Thanks so much!

The team at SM1 Print are fantastic. Always on hand to support with any queries, including bespoke items. For a recent event, we needed many elements including banners, cards, and a pledge pin board. The team delivered on time, in budget and the content was of excellent quality. Thanks as always!
