What is a Layered Business Card?

Layered business cards use a similar process as our 2-ply cards, where two stocks are pressed together to create a double thick card or even combine two different types of paper for the front and the back. Layered cards are special in that they are a 3-ply card, taking it one step further by allowing for a coloured stock to be placed in the middle which creates a multi-coloured edge effect and extreme thickness. We refer to this product on our website as a Layered Business Card or a 3-ply Business Card.

At Jukebox, you have the freedom to choose any of our two cardstocks for the outside layers. This gives you the option to choose a different stock for each side, and select from our wide range of premium materials. 

Some excellent combinations for 3-ply layered business cards include using Premium Black stock with foiled designs for the outsides layers, or even our Natural Wood stocks, as seen in the stunning example below:

Natural Birch Stock with Pink and Blue middle layers.


We recommend choosing bright colours for the inside (middle) layer as this achieves the most obvious effect, however we can use almost any colour of paper you need. Check out the Jukebox Colour Collection for a wide range of paper options that can be used for any of the three layers in a 3-ply business card.

Specialty Services like foiled or embossed designs can also be requested with this product. We are not able to offer die-cut shapes for 3-ply cards at this time.

Since this product can be fully customized, in most cases it will need to be ordered through a Print Quote request. 

Please note that design considerations for layered cards are a bit different than for regular 1-ply orders. See: Layered Cards Design Considerations.
