﷯﷯Business Cards "Can I have your business card?" That’s a question which is asked as frequently as “would you like fries with that?” and “does this make me look fat?” Every time you meet someone new, you exchange business cards with them. If you don’t, you should – you’re missing a great opportunity. A business card is an integral part of any good marketing plan. For its size and cost, it's probably the most powerful part. Of course, you can't expect your business card to tell the whole story about your company. What you should expect it to do is present a professional image people will remember. A business card can make or break a client's first impression of your company. In fact, this little card makes as much of an impression as your personal appearance - the suit you wear or the briefcase you carry. Choose a card style that's appropriate for your business, industry and personal style. If you're a funeral director, for example, you don't want to be caught handing out fluorescent cards with cartoon figures on them. If you're a mechanic whose specialty is converting old Beetles into dune buggies, a formal, black-on-white embossed card will probably be dropped into the nearest circular file. When crafting a design, start with the style that best supports the business image you wish to project. Do you want your business card to portray you as being stylish and classy, or cheap and nasty. The preponderance of do-it-yourself online business-card printing companies is an interesting and somewhat troubling phenomenon. With limited exceptions, it's fairly easy to spot an inexpensively produced card. When you choose to "go cheap" on your business cards, what message does that send to those with whom you wish to do business? Are you really doing yourself any favors by missing out on the opportunity to start building a positive brand image right from the start? There are four primary considerations when ordering business cards: Weight. Most business cards are printed on 300-420gsm card stock.
Finish. Uncoated, matt, gloss, 1 sided or 2 sided. The options depend on personal preference and what is suitable for the kind of image you want to project.
Color. Right now, full colour cards predominate. But if you have another ink color in mind, we can show you a Pantone Matching System book, which includes every shade under the sun.
Quantity. It generally pays to print more cards rather than fewer, because the printer's cost is primarily in the setup. 250 cards is the most economical minimum, but 1,000 cards is definitely the best value. When thinking about what to put on your card make sure you include the essentials. This means your name, title, company name, address, phone numbers, e-mail and Web site. If someone wants to contact you after receiving your card, you sure as heck want them to be able to. The Bottom Line
Think about how you use other people's business cards when you make decisions regarding your own. Do you get frustrated when you can't quickly find the information you need? Or the type is too small to read? Or printed in a font that's hard to decipher? Do cheaply produced cards make you think less of the person or company represented? Does it take you a while to realize whose card it is, or what company that person works for? Don't make those same mistakes when designing your business card. Make sure it's a positive reflection of both you and your company, and it mirrors your well-defined brand identity.
