What are the dimensions of the business card in centimeters?

Business cards do not have a standard size. However, the most commonly used size in the United States and Canada is 3.5x2 inches. The size of the US standard size converted to centimeters and millimeters is shown in the image above.
In addition to standard sizes, Aprinting allows you to create business cards of the sizes used in each country. With standard size business cards, you can make a variety of products, including loyalty cards, reservation cards, coupons, and more.
Converting Business Card Dimensions from Inches to Pixels
To get good and sharp print quality, you usually need an image of 300 PPI(pixels per inch). If the number of pixels is insufficient, the printed image will be blurred or pixelated. The pixels of a standard business card of 3.5" x 2" is 1050 x 600. However, the printable file must contain bleed. The full bleed size of Aprinting is 3.58" x 2.08" for 3.5" x 2". Thus the pixel value is 1074x624.
Bleed size varies from printer to printer.
A bleed is the part of your design that runs over the trim edge. Always stretch your design to the edge of the bleed area. For Aprinting.com bleed of 0.04" is required. Depending on what program you are using, you may be able to apply bleed when you are saving artwork.
