The standard business-card size in the United States is 3.5 by 2 inches as of 2014. Horizontal orientation is the most common, although cards can also have vertical orientation.
Business cards with a non-standard size are sometimes chosen to make the card stand out. Cards can be created through computer programs or through a printing company. Types of business cards include folded business cards, which are typically 3.5 by 4 inches, or 3.5 by 2 inches when folded, and mini business cards, which are about half the size of standard business cards. Business cards are made for companies and individuals. They usually include the services provided by the person or business and contact information.
