Business cards are made in large sheets of media (typically paper, but sometimes synthetic materials) then cut down to size. These large sheets are printed on one side or both, taken to the cutter, then cut down to size.
Business cards are typically 14pt or 16pt paper. Since business cards are made out of cardstock, there is a range of thicknesses to choose from. Cardstock is measured in 1/1000s of an inch, starting at about .006 (6/1000) or "6pt". Cardstock can go up to 32pt. Coatings can also add to the thickness. Suede laminate, for example, can increase the thickness of a 16pt card by about 20% to 19pt.
It's common to see extremely cheap business cards for $10 or less. This price is deceptively low, since it always excludes shipping, uses cheaper paper, very limited printing options, and has low image and color quality. Good quality business cards will often range from $30 - $60 per set of 1,000.
