  • Easy-to-write-on matte on the back
  • Great for highlighting logos, names & more

A cut above
With our embossed business cards, you can add layers of thick, raised gloss to specific parts of your design. The special finish gives text and visuals a can’t-miss shine and 3D texture that stands out against the smooth, matte background. It’s a great option for almost any design, since you can use embossed gloss on up to 75% of the front of your card.

Stylish & smart
Embossed business cards give you a creative, professional look, and point customers towards the most important information and images. You choose where to use the special finish. Give your company name and contact info a little extra oomph. Emphasize your logo and branding. Or make sure a special offer gets extra attention.

Fast, easy design
You can upload your own design or browse a variety of templates created specifically for embossed cards (also known as 3D business cards or spot UV business cards). Then, you decide where to add the raised, glossy printing. You can go with our default suggestions, but you’ll typically be able to choose almost any piece of your design. You’ll always see a chat option if you need a hand, and if you’re looking for ideas or inspiration, check out our business card examples.

The color represented on my computer does not look the same as the color of my cards received. As I have ordered many items based on the color that I see on my computer and this is the only time I received something that looks different, I am not happy. My business cards are good otherwise but I am not happy with the background color on the front or on the back. I have several different text colors and they all match up but the background coloring is off.

Response from Vistaprint Customer Care Team:

Thanks for your review submission. We appreciate your input and apologize for the inconsistency in the backdrop color of your new business cards. We care about your satisfaction, and we understand how frustrating it may be when expectations aren't met.
