The costs that are associated with business cards tend to involve two separate factors. One of these factors would be the cost of the materials that were used in the manufacturing process to create the cards in the first place, and the second factor involves the printing process itself. There is a pretty good chance that you can reduce costs by opting for a cheaper material, but suffice it to say that you wouldn’t be able to do all that much about the process by which they would be printed through machines and the like.
What’s more is that Metal Business Kards aren’t all that much more expensive than paper based ones, and the truth of the situation is that they are durable enough to make the slight price increase more than worth your while. Hence, instead of trying to cut down small costs, try to look at business card printing as an overhead and incorporate it into your budget with an average price of $100 per 10,000 cards kept in mind. This can go up by a few dollars if you opt for metal cards, but that’s not enough to make a significant enough difference.
There is a third factor that can come into play if you are getting smaller batches printed, and this is the bulk discount. You wouldn’t be able to take advantage of this discount if you are opting for smaller batches so you should at the very least try your best to help yourself save some cash by getting larger batches of several thousand cards printed all at once. Taking all of these factors into account can help you better understand business card pricing.
