Banana Print Business Cards Review

After looking around for hours on 4th May I finally bought my first set of business cards! I've been wanting them for a while now but I've never settled on a design I like or knew what to write on them. After asking around and looking at different websites I found the perfect site for me - Banana Print.
How my design looked online

I had the option to have 50 free single-sided business cards with or without (surcharge for without) Banana Print's logo and just pay postage or pay from £4.95 for 100 double-sided business cards with no logo. I picked the latter. I decided I needed my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email and of course my blog on my business card. I picked these social media as they are the social media that I'm most active on. On the back I decided to add my blog header and a QR barcode which links back to my blog if you scan it with your mobile device

Business card details
85mm x 55mm
350gsm Silk
Double Sided
not coated
Square Corners
x 100 cards
When they arrived I was so happy, they're pretty high quality I was expecting dull colours and low quality but I'm so happy they're amazing, what more can you ask for when you're paying £12 including postage. I was a little worried they'd be blurry, which would totally be my fault due to photo quality but I'm glad they've come out perfect. They look a little blurry in the pictures but that is just due to my photography! 

Banana Print claim to have a 24 hour dispatch, I picked standard delivery, stats as followed:
Ordered: 04.05.15 - 11:05pm
Dispatched: 05. 05.15 - 2:29pm
Delivered: 06. 05.15 - 11:02am

I'm very impressed with their dispatch and delivery times, many companies couldn't print and send personalised items so quickly! 

I have a few blogger events coming up and I can't wait to finally hand some out instead of asking for others cards and saying I'll contact them! It's always great to swap business cards, they'll remember you more. 

Would you buy business cards?


  1. business card and the QR code is a great idea!




  2. I haven't got around to making myself any blog business cards but it's something I would like to do. I love the idea of making things easy and adding a QR code!

  3. They look good, and certainly not breaking the bank. What's the paper quality like?

    1. The paper quality is pretty good, I'm sure if I added a few of the extras like coating and a higher gsm it would be better but for a first business card the paper quality is great

  4. Looks like you got a really good deal there with the business cards. Now to start networking so you can hand them out!

  5. Such a great idea! need to try these.

  6. I hadn't heard of Banana Print. Your design looks great. Love it :)
