A lovingly curated set of business card possibilities, printed to show your brand and name off in the best possible light.

Be the envy of your peers

Our business card range has been refined down to the excellent set of choices shown on this page and in our price list. You can download the price list here.

We often get asked to quote on Colorplan cards with foiling, embossing or to print cards with the kitchen sink thrown at them. However, whilst we appreciate everyone would like exciting papers and finishes, no-one in 15 years has ever paid £600 for 250 business cards even though we’ve quoted loads of them!  Thank you for the opportunity, but we only print the options shown on this page.

So, this page now shows our complete range from the most cost effective through to the all singing, all dancing, super luxury.

BENEFITS OF PRINTING WITH EX WHY ZED
We hope you have enjoyed looking around our website. Here are some extra reasons to trust Ex Why Zed with your next project:
We are an online company but with real people
We don’t believe that you should have to settle for the bare minimum from your print company. You have spent hours, weeks and months preparing your stunning artwork so why would you now go and give it to a printer where you can get an instant price, upload a pdf, then the files disappear and you have to keep your fingers crossed that what turns up is what you expected?
Your work in print
Hey, let’s be honest…sending out a printed business card is way better than emailing someone a pdf isn’t it!?
Super fast response times
We will get back to you within a few hours, usually quicker. Sometimes, we’ll get back to you before it even feels like you pressed “Send” on the email. Look, we’re not sitting here twiddling our thumbs but we certainly won’t make you wait days for a response to a quote request or email.
Environmentally friendly papers
All of our papers are FSC Approved. These are arguably better than 100% recycled papers because there are less chemicals involved in making them. We also use vegetable inks on our litho press.
UK & Worldwide delivery
Delivery within the UK is free. Yes, FREE! The portfolios will arrive the day after they leave us. We also deliver work around the world too and just charge the shipping at our cost price from the cheapest courier on the day.
Your go-to print supplier
We want to become a reliable cog in your supply mechanism. Send us your artwork, we’ll preflight it for no extra charge, then print it and deliver with no fuss allowing you to concentrate on running the creative aspects of your business.
Our customers trust us
We are proud that a large percentage of our business comes from repeat orders and happy client referrals without the need for expensive advertising campaigns. In turn this helps us keep our prices down which ultimately helps make your projects more commercially viable. Win win!
Thorough file checking is standard
We understand that you might not be 100% confident in preparing artwork for print. When you send us your files, they are thoroughly checked and we always come back to you with recommendations for improvement if something doesn’t look right,

As a first time author, working with Ex Why Zed made the entire process really smooth. They not only served our printing needs but also served as consultants by guiding us on how to format our books to ensure the best possible quality. Our books came out really beautiful, the price was great and production time was super quick. Thanks Ex why zed, can’t wait to come back for my next round of books.

From the outset, ExWhyZed provided fantastic support and customer service. As a first time self-publishing author, printing was a bit of a mystery. Their long and detailed explanatory video was a hugely helpful start, which enabled me to understand the process. Mike then followed up with templates, suggestions and email help to make sure my book was printed to the highest standards. They also worked hard to fulfil my order before Christmas, which was extremely important! I can't rate their service highly enough. Everybody who has seen the finished product is hugely impressed by the quality

Exwhyzed is the best digital printer I have found for photography books in colour. The print quality is excellent, the colours exceptional and their 170gsm silk house paper superb. What makes Exwhyzed even more special is the personal service. Mike who runs the company is always willing to help with solid advice and information. I ordered a proof copy first to make sure that both of us had got it right. I was so pleased that I ordered 120 books which were printed, bound and delivered to my door with a week. I couldn’t recommend them more.

Working with Mike at ExWhyZed was a joy! I am based in the US and wasn't sure how getting a print job done in the UK would go, but I needn't have worried. The attention to detail, patience and willingness to help - all backed up by a fantastic website loaded with excellent information made the project easy, quick and painless! Thanks Mike!

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

FAQs to guide you in the journey of getting your business cards into print

If you were "just wondering" about something, well “just wonder” no more, here are the answers!

View all our FAQ's
Do you print business cards onto Colorplan?

No, sorry.  As explained above, they are always too expensive.  Choose one of our options above and save you and your client time and money.

Can you foil business cards?

No, sorry.  As explained above, they are always too expensive. The cost of foiling would be £280 for that process alone.  Choose one of our options above and save you and your client time and money.

Can you emboss business cards?

No, sorry.  As explained above, they are always too expensive. The cost of embossing would be £280 for that process alone.  Choose one of our options above and save you and your client time and money.

How do I place an order?

You'll need to upload the files using www.wetransfer.com sending them to hello@exwhyzed.co.uk and in the comments box let us know the number of copies you're going for and the best address for delivery. We'll then give your artwork a free preflight check to highlight any potential issues and will email with any advice or recommendations before going to production.

We have a smooth, no fuss ordering system. Use wetransfer.com to send us the print ready PDF and our eagle eyed pre-press team will give it a preflight check. You will then receive a final PDF proof to check on screen and once that is approved we’ll go to print. Easy!

How do I add bleed to my file?

We will need 3mm bleed on all the edges, you'll notice at the moment that the artwork stops at the crop marks - it needs to extend 3mm beyond this to avoid any chance of a white border.

The following page includes illustrated and video guides on how to set up bleed correctly:
