Foiled Business Cards Make a First Impression

November 20, 2012 · Print This Article

There are many benefits to outsourcing foiled business card printing in Cape Town. While it is possible to design a card for one’s own purposes and print out a sheet and cut them into individual oblongs with a pair of scissors, this may be penny wise and pound foolish.

People are not always aware of the importance of first impressions, but on reflection their significance becomes apparent. A self-printed business card does not create a good first impression.

A person who hands out a piece of wobbly card with frayed edges and perhaps a misspelling or two certainly creates an unfavourable impression of professionalism and work ethic. People many argue that a business card isn’t the first thing you look at when meeting a potential colleague or client, but if you were to meet a number of people on a given day and only have a business card as a means to contact them, a stand-out business card could definitely impact your impression of the person.

A foiled business card that has been professionally produced has a certain quality that distinguishes it. In a way it is a compliment to the person who receives it. He or she will be more inclined to file it safely and refer to the details in it when the need arises.

Many foiled business cards expand on the importance of first impressions and of social networking. It is true that cards can now be sent by smartphone, or over the Internet. However, the tangible feel of a shiny card that can be kept in in a wallet has its own cachet. It is most likely to engender trust.
