Aura Print kindly offered to help me design, create and print my perfect business cards with their easy business card printing services. I was kindly offered the chance to receive 250 business cards featuring my own ready-made design, to ensure I am ready for any offline encounters, where I want to promote my brand and network with new clients. 

Aura Print are a boutique printer who specialise in creating fantastic business cards that promote your brand and give amazing first impressions to whoever you distribute your cards to. They take extreme pride in curating and producing some of the best custom print jobs, with a huge range of design templates with customisation options that other printing companies simply cannot match.


For my personal business cards for my blog, I wanted to design something fun, bold and colourful, but keeping it as minimalist as possible. At the end of the day, that saying "less is more" is really relevant here. I wanted a double-sided business card that featured a simple, modern design - similar to my blog aesthetic of a bold, minimal website, and to make sure I include the basic contact/personal information that I thought was relevant for me and my brand. 

The printed business cards arrived extremely well packaged. All my business cards stored away in small, clear plastic boxes, perfect to slip into any bag for on the go travel. There was so much care and detail taken with my order, it was simply so professional, I couldn't recommend enough.


In terms of style, I opted for the 700 silk, gloss finish laminated business card printing as these were best suited for colourful designs with bright tones. Just what my design needed. The protective gloss coating bounces light causing reflections that catch peoples eye and makes them stand out. The gloss laminate also offers a bit of extra strength and toughness to your card giving it a more durable, sturdier feel. 
For the layout, I chose to have my business cards printed landscape, with a size measurement of 89mm by 51mm. For me, this is the most ideal and practical size, as this makes the cards more travel friendly and able to fit into most wallets/card holders safely and securely. 

Throughout my whole experience with Aura Print, I was kept informed and updated with my order ideas every step of the way. From helping with design tips, to viewing printing proof to helping with crops and bleeds on my design, and even contacting me once my order had been processed and despatched. I cannot fault the customer service at all!
