vistaprint brown kraft rough paper business cards

Vistaprint Business Cards: (New) Recycled “Kraft” Premium Paper!

vistaprint coupon logo blueKraft business cards on brown uncoated paper: Vistaprint has a wide array of business cards, so sometimes the better styles can get lost. One of those great, relatively unknown styles is called, “Kraft.”

Kraft business cards are eco-friendly, and printed on uncoated, light brown, 90% recycled paper.

Kraft is a paper option under Premium Business Cards, and there are dozens of vintage-looking design options to choose from.

Check out these sample Kraft design templates from Vistaprint below:

More About “Kraft” Recycled Business Cards

Kraft business cards are simple, minimalist, and striking. They are a great alternative to conventional glossy, polished business cards.

Their cool, vintage-look really makes an impact. The brown paper stock is uncoated, and looks best with black ink, which really pops!

Also, the unfinished, uncoated paper is great for writing on. You can even see the natural wood fibers of the pulp of this paper, which gives these business cards a rustic look.

If you own a small business or are a freelancer who would benefit from hip cards that you can write personalized notes on, consider Kraft (brown) paper stock.

*To view kraft, just click “business cards / Premium” at vistaprint.com like this:

*View Kraft business cards at vistaprint.com

Or….

1. Click “Business Cards” up top:

2. Then click “Premium“:

vistaprint premium business_cards

*Go to vistaprint.com and view Premium business cards

Kraft business cards are available in these sizes:

  • Standard (3.5″ x 2″): The traditional size and shape – fits in any holder.
  • Square (2.5″ x 2.5″): Uniquely shaped cards that look and feel a cut above.
  • Slim (3.5″ x 1.75″): A sleek and streamlined look that makes your card stand out.

*Rounded corners (quarter-inch) are also a nice option!

What not to print on Kraft business cards

Because of the color and nature of this paper stock, I’d recommend NOT printing photos or colors that have any yellows, oranges, or any other light colors.

Black and white, high contrast photos might work, but you can’t print white ink on them.

Reviews?

The customer reviews for “standard” recycled cards aren’t good, but these qualify as “Premium” business cards. I might order some of these and do my own review, as I really like them!

Coupons?

Vistaprint has a “500 business cards for $10” deal, but these craft cards don’t qualify. You can, however, use the same promo code towards these for 40% off.
