Get business cards that sell your company
September 16, 2016 · Print This Article
Your business card needs to be your mini PR company – that means that when you give it to someone, it needs to present your company in as positive a light as possible without you saying a word. Here are some ideas for business card printing in the Montague Gardens area and what different design elements say about your company.
- Keep it simple with clear text
This may seem dull, but a simple, clean business card can actually speak a thousand words. This tells people that the information on the card is the most important element of it. There are no “frills” – just the hard facts. This works perfectly for business cards of professionals.
- Use the right paper
Consider how your card feels in someone’s hand. A flimsy piece of paper that bends easily feels cheap, while thick card stock feels strong and firm. A satin finish paper feels luxurious (perfect for the beauty and clothing industries), whilst something textured with an embossed font can conjure up images of rich mahogany and leather-bound books. This type of finish is a great idea for someone in the furniture or hospitality industries. Textures can also make people want to examine the card they’re holding, drawing their attention to it.
- Give your card a second purpose
A great idea for a business card is to give it a job to do. Instead of being a simple piece of cardboard that eventually gets dog-eared and tossed away, give it a second purpose so the recipient wants to hold onto it. It could be a card-sized multi-tool with your information printed on it (great for a handy-man or plumber business) or a miniature ruler for an architect or draftsman.
- Above all, ensure it is printed impeccably
Low-quality printing, off-centre cutting and pixelated logos just send the wrong message right away. It shows a lack of attention to detail, low standards and an overall lack of regard for a job well done. Always use a printing company that does a great job and offers clients comprehensive graphic design services.
