I was wondering, is there an ISO for the business cards dimensions ?

I had an argue with a coleague of mine on this matter, because I have seen so many models and I am unsure there is an ISO over this....

Please share your knowledge, thank you !

I suppose that similarly to the web designing there are best practices, but I doubt that there would be any kind of standard which would define the optimal layout of a business card. I think that the best card reflect high level of creativity, which means something new. I suggest to build a new trend rather than follow one.

That is correct, still in the print industry for example a customer comes into your printing house and asks for basic business cards. What will you explain him about it ?

Actually, there's ISO for everything :)

This is the Abstract from ISO document, I cannot post links since I don't have required quota of posts:

ISO/IEC 7810:2003 is one of a series of standards describing the characteristics of identification cards. It is the purpose of ISO/IEC 7810:2003 to provide criteria to which cards shall perform and to specify the requirements for such cards used for international interchange. It takes into consideration both human and machine aspects and states minimum requirements.

ISO/IEC 7810:2003 specifies:
four different sizes of identification cards with a nominal thickness of 0,76 mm and dimensions of:
ID-000 25 mm x 15 mm,
ID-1 85,60 mm x 53,98 mm,
ID-2 105 mm x 74 mm,
ID-3 125 mm x 88 mm;
the conditions for conformance;
the dimensions and tolerances of the identification cards;
the construction and materials of the identification cards; and
the physical characteristics of the cards such as bending stiffness, flammability, toxicity, resistance to chemicals, dimensional stability, adhesion or blocking, warpage, resistance to heat, surface distortions, and contamination.

ISO/IEC 7810:2003, together with a standard for test methods, provides for interchange between various types of identification card processing devices and systems.

I strongly agree with Zoli. :)
