    Stationary Dimensions

    Hi all,
    I really need the dimensions of Business cards, letterheads, etc... (stationary )I have viewed some templates from Word, but none of them gave me the exact dimensions in PIXELS, and not in mm, or cm.
    I use fireworks, maybe someone can send me a template, or a link,
    thanks,
    Brian

    If a standard credit card is 3 3/8 x 2 1/8 in., then it's 243 x 153 px with 72 px/in.

    Updated Ok, you said business card, not credit card, but the principle is the same

    BTW 1 inch = 2.54 cm

    Leterheads, Invoices etc = a4 (210 x 297 mm)

    C/slips = (210 x 99mm)

    B/cards = Can vary widely. I usually go for (85 x 55mm). but really depends on the design.

    These are uk standards as in america they stock paper in a different size to the UK.

    Brian, keep in mind that when designing for print (such as what you intend to do) that you will need to work with a resolution of 300dpi or greater as aposed to the 72dpi you would for screen designs.

    Like iTec said, your first concern is the physical dimensions of mm and cm etc etc. Designing for print forget about pixels, just set your pixel resolution (300dpi etc) and use mm or whatever.
