Business card printing in Australia now has an environmental priority and Ecoprint is here to take your promotional material into the future of print. Whatever your requirements, we can work with you. We deliver your business cards Australia wide. Ecoprint can also work with you to develop your designs, to make your communication stand out from your competition.
Put simply, Ecoprint was developed to offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional business card print communications. While we are still using a finite resource to develop our product, we ultimately aim to provide a print product made completely from recycled materials to ensure print is part of everyone’s future.
What are the environmental credentials of your products and service?
Our papers meet a minimum of FSC standard / with our uncoated papers and cards meeting ‘Fully recycled’ standard (produced from other paper products and also able to be recycled.
Our inks are vegetable based and require approximately 90% less solvent on cleanup. Ink on card/paper also ensures it future recyclability as well.
Do we offer graphic design for your business cards?
Yes. Our graphic design team has your design needs covered. From business cards to billboards we can help your brand get off the ground with innovative designs and complimentary services. Send your email through or your ideas and we can bring them to life. Contact us for more information, we’re happy to discuss your requirements.
Yes, our printing and delivery timelines are great! But it’s important to remember that things do take time. So to break this down for you – most print takes 2 days to produce from your submission of correct artwork and invoice payment. If there is anything complex with your production (die cutting, foiling, additional print extras) this can push an extra day to your production.
Delivery is based on our freight contractors. Metro delivery is generally within a few days and regional delivery is within 5 days. Perth or Western Australian delivery is tricky… so we’ll advise you on these delivery times on your order.
If you have an urgent timeline to meet, please let us know! We can print quicker, and also place your delivery within an overnight bag if you require. Extra fees may apply, but we can definitely meet your timeline.
What is bleed in printing?
What is bleed? Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet before trimming. In other words, the bleed is the area to be trimmed off. The bleed is the part on the side of a document that gives the printer a small amount of space to account for movement of the paper, and design inconsistencies. Artwork and background colors can extend into the bleed area. After trimming, the bleed ensures that no unprinted edges occur in the final trimmed document. Bleed in printing is extremely important if you have graphics that print to the edge of the card/paper.
We recommend a 2-3 mm bleed area on all artwork supplied to us for printing.
What is the size of a business card?
Ecoprint business cards are printed at 90x55mm. If working in Adobe InDesign or Ilustrator, create a document size of 90×55, and when exporting to PDF, ensure to select 3mm bleed in the options. If you are working in Adobe Photoshop, please build your bleed into your design (tile size of 96x61mm) and export to PDF ensuring you include fonts while exporting. Remember when working in Photoshop that the actual print area will be 90×55, so leave sufficient gutter/space from the edge of your design.
We can also print business cards at different sizes, please ask us to see if we can accommodate your specific size request.
We’ll always let you know if something doesn’t look quite right with your designs.
How long does it take to print my business cards?
Ecoprint can have your beautiful business cards, in your hand within 3 working days! But to meet these quick turnaround times, we’ll need your print ready files, before noon on any given day. This quick turnaround is also limited to Metro areas in Australia. For all other areas, please allow up to 5 working days to receive your business cards.
Do you send out samples of your paper?
Due to the extensive number of sample requests we receive weekly, we no longer send samples of our papers. Upon calculating the amount of waste that was produce from offering samples, we consciously can’t continue this practice. Importantly – we keep our paper choices for you very simple. Choose either a coated / or uncoated paper. Simple.

We used to show our phone number on our website until quite recently. Now we don’t list it on our site and we receive much much less phone SPAM. If you need to contact us, please start via email – and we can then provide our full contact details.
