Braille Business Cards

Make your business cards memorable, relevant to your business, accessible and able to be read by everyone!

Clear accessible design

Business cards are either supplied as standard 55x85mm single or double-sided cards or as 4-side folding cards (portrait or landscape). If the customer chooses the standard size, they’ll need braille labels for the reverse. Choosing the 4-side folding cards means that the card has a clear image in print on sides 1 and 2, and then the important information in braille on sides 3 and 4. It is not considered good practice to put braille over what is often already small print on standard business cards as this affects the legibility of the print to anyone sighted or partially sighted. Please be aware that braille takes roughly 4x the space of standard print (12pt) so the information you can include will be very limited. For example, on a four-line business card braille label you can often only get the e-mail address and telephone number. You may fit the person’s name or business too, but only if the details are short.
