Custom Business Cards – Austin TX
A high quality business card can really enhance the first impression people have about you and your organization. Also known as visiting cards or calling cards, business cards originated in China back in the 15th century. Historically these were carried only by upper class people. They were presented as a form of introduction upon arriving at a commercial establishment or private residence. Often admission was granted on the basis of the content and quality of the business card’s printing.
Well, a lot has changed since the 15th century. But the printed business card is still the standard form of introduction in virtually every sales situation, professional meeting or new social encounter. What has changed is the breadth of card designs, sizes, shapes and materials that are now available. These innovations are possible due to our modern cardstock materials, inks, foils, embossing and printing technologies. Now even the most innovative professionally printed full color business cards can be made for a modest cost in a short amount of time.
Yes, we all have smart phones and social media accounts, with digital signatures and vcard exchange via Bluetooth or WiFi. But these don’t convey the same image of quality, substance and refinement as a well-made die cut offset printed business card.

Unique and Creative Business Cards
Austin Texas has a wealth of artists and musicians, as well as some leading high tech corporations and cutting edge start-ups. These organizations and individuals want to create a special, powerful impression – a brand statement that everyone will remember.
At MMP we can make laminated cards, square or rounded corners, foil stamped designs, one or 2-sided, circular or oval shaped — even folding business cards. And you can choose from a huge variety of colors and textures of cardstocks, ink and appliqués. All this creativity is made possible by the advances in materials and digital printing technology. These improvements, along with modern computers and graphic design software, have also reduced the time and expense of creating designs, setting up the layout and printer configurations, printing and cutting them to size.
MMP offers you a choice of offset printing or digitally printed cards. Offset is a little more expensive; but the precise manner in which the text and images are pressed onto the paper produces the best possible results. On the other hand, the quality of digital print has improved enormously in recent years. Digital printing can be more economical — particularly if you’re only having a couple hundred cards made.
Many of our customers order letterhead and envelopes to match their custom business cards. These can utilize the same graphic design and printer setup, saving you money. If you communicate with customers and prospects via direct mail, there’s nothing like a classy envelope with matching letterhead and professional business card to create a great impression – and higher open and response rates.
Stop by our print shop at 3007 Longhorn Blvd (off Burnett Road) in North Austin. We’ll be glad to show you examples of both digital and offset printed business cards, so you can decide which is best for you.
