Did you know the size of business cards can vary from country to country?
The standard business card size that you know and currently have in your file is most likely US business card size, which is 89 mm (3.5 in) in Width and 51 mm (2 in) in Height.
Although there is no such thing as ‘Standard Business Card Size’, people living in the US or Canada will be more familiar with the US business card size.
Euro business cards are 85 mm (3.35 in) x 55 mm (2.17 in). It’s not a big difference and most likely, people won’t notice unless you mention it. However, it’s smart to know the difference, so people who do business internationally or travel often can be prepared. It’s the extra detail that makes you different from your competitors!
While the differences in the size are only minor, it may affect your job for diverse reasons. Business cards can reflect tradition and culture coming from the size of bank cards. Next time you plan on making a new business card, consider making two versions – American & European, so you are prepared for any future opportunity!
