Here’s this year’s My Metal Business Card Sizes and Dimensions Guide! You may think you’ve already learned everything about your standard business card: paper weight, average rectangle, same size as the next.
Well, in the world of metal business cards, we play by a different set of rules!
At My Metal Business Card, we love exercising our creativity to provide you with a unique card that goes above and beyond business card norms. With an endless selection of sizes and shapes, we know it can get a little overwhelming, so we’ll be here to guide you through everything there is to know.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get!
Standard business card sizing is 3.5 x 2.” However, we have found that with the added thickness of our metal cards, that 3.46 x 1.96” fits better into a wallet. Credit card size (also known as CR80) is another reliably standard option for business cards at 2.13 x 3.38.”
We believe the best size for a business card is anything that can fit comfortably in a wallet or pocket. Therefore, most frequent-use cards, such as membership cards, gifts cards, etc. are all the same size. This standardized sizing creates ease for the user and ensures they will continue to access and utilize the card without hassle.
Starting off with our standard and most popular, we have our standard metal business card size which closely matches a regular paper business card at 3.46 x 1.96.” Commonly used, this size is perfect for fitting in pockets, wallets, and for carrying around to hand potential clients – while still making an impact with the weight and feel of a metal card.
The standard business size is a popular choice for:
Mini yet mighty, our square metal business cards, like the Square Metal Business Cards measure in at 2.12 x 2.12”—one of the smallest standard sizes we offer.
Even though they don’t cover as much surface area as a typical business card, these cards stand out from the crowd with their trendy and unique shape.
It IS hip to be square!
These square card dimensions are a popular choice for:
A square metal business card can be any size, but our standard dimensions of 2.12 x 2.12” are large enough to fit your content, while being cost effective and unique.
Yes! Our square cards are small enough to fit in a wallet, while making a BIG statement.
This all depends on your branding and vision! If your logo revolves around a lot of circles and rounded edges, you may want to keep the same visual flow by choosing to have a rounded card. On the other hand, a square card may fit perfectly with your company’s design elements and overall look. Instead of handing out a rectangular card, try something with a custom shape that flows with your branding.
Do you work with cars? Try handing out a card in the shape of your favorite set of wheels, and watch the jaws drop.
If you’re wanting to recreate the luxurious look of a Black American Express Card, or just want to replicate the feel of a credit card, we offer CR80 sizing which matches the dimensions of a standard credit card at 2.13 x 3.38”.
Also exclusive to our CR80 sizing are our carbon fiber business cards. Fabricated from genuine carbon fiber, these cards are super light and incredibly durable, and are perfect for those in the aircraft or racecar industries! Our credit card business card dimensions are a popular choice for:
Credit cards are made in CR80 dimensions to fit specific standards set by the International Organization for Standardization, so they are compatible with all available POS systems.
Due to the nature of the material, our authentic carbon fiber cards are unable to be produced with custom shapes or cutouts. No need to worry, the carbon fiber stands out all on its own and we can use our screen-printed spot colors to create a more custom design.
But business cards don’t always belong in wallets, so why not turn your business card into one of our etched metal dog tags?
At 1.125 x 2″ you don’t have to use these as a traditional dog tags (although you’re welcome to). With ball chains added, you’ll be ready to create new opportunities by attaching your cards to promotional products, giveaway bags, and more.

Ball Chains do not come standard with the product, but you can choose from either 4.5” key chain or 14” necklace length chains, under the advanced settings tab.

The ideal business card encourages potential clients that are interested in your business to reach back out to you for additional information, or visit your website for additional information. Being knowledgeable on which information should be included (and what shouldn’t) can make all the difference!
A well rounded business card should include the following elements:
Adding too much information to the card can keep the client from reaching out to ask additional questions, or can create a design that is too busy and lacks interest.
Business cards are the perfect window into your business and branding! The best finish for a business card depends on the look and feel of your business, and the message you are trying to convey.

We recommend taking advantage of the available space and use both sides. All of our metal business cards come standard with double-side content included!
There is no standard font for business cards. We have a wide array of fonts at our disposal for use in your design! If you have a specific font you’d like us to use, feel free to email the font file to use at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your order number, and we would be happy to utilize it in your metal business cards.
We don’t recommend using anything smaller than a 7pt font in order to ensure legibility of the text.
We recommend starting with providing an email address as a point of contact, or a phone number for a landline that is readily answered by staff.
This will allow you to take time to respond when available, and can keep you from feeling trapped by endless calls during off hours, or at inopportune times.
