How much are Business Cards?

If you are an employee of Bakersfield College and want business cards, they don't cost anything. If you want business cards for off-campus business, the Graphics Center has a master price list for business cards. In order to give you a price, however, there are a few things we need to know.

How many do you need, are they already designed, are they in color or black and white, one sided or two sided, when do you need them? Once all of these questions are answered, we will be able to give you a price quote.

A few of the more common quantities and colors for outside business cards are:

  • 250 B/W Business Cards = $10.00

  • 500 B/W Business Cards = $15.00

  • 250 Color Business Cards = $14.00

  • 500 Color Business Cards = $26.00

Please call the Graphics Center at 395-4651 for more information.


How much does it cost to make copies?

Before we can answer that, we need to know how many you need, if you want color copies or black and white copies, if the job is one sided or two sided, what type of paper, and when you need them.
