Your business card tells a lot about your brand or business. Designing and printing a great business card often puts you miles ahead of the competition in the mind of a potential customer. In general, even professionally printed business cards are inexpensive.
This is partly because printing shops compete for business and will provide business cards at a reasonable price. To create business cards that showcase your brand or business in the best possible way, consider Tips for Designing and Printing the Best Possible VIP Business Card for Your Brand or Company.
1.) Add your product or service to your card.
How many times have we been scouring our collection of business calling cards to find cards with only a name and contact information, and no clue what the company or brand does! These cards are useless in networking situations where recipients will collect multiple cards and later enter them into a contact management system.
2.) Have your business logo professionally designed.
If you have a penchant for design, you may want to design your logo for your business. However, avoid using clip-art or web-art as your company logo. Graphics quality is very low for such artwork. The professionally designed logo will provide you with high-quality graphics files that can be used when creating your calling cards. A low-quality logo will print with graphic imperfections and shadows. Spend money or allot time to design and create a professionally designed company or brand logo.
3.) Always keep the business card up to date with current information.
Most people bark at receiving a pen to receive a card with a phone number and a new one written. In fact, in today's world with the potential for fraud, many people will simply toss a card if a number is scratched and a new one is written. If your phone number, email address, or address changes, print a new batch of calling cards with current information.
