Business card sizes dimensions and international formats


International business card sizes and dimensions
Interestingly business cards don't have the same size around world. There are international standards but local traditions and preferences can make certain dimensions the standard size in a country. The metric vs imperial measurement system may also play a role. Most countries around the world use the metric measurement system with millimeters, whereas the US uses inches. The height and width of the business cards do not very much however. For practical reasons they all must fit in a wallet.
