Knowing how many business cards you need is tricky

July 24, 2015 · Print This Article

When going through the process of ordering business cards, knowing how many you need to order can give similar feelings to playing Russian roulette. This is a very tricky decision to make correctly due to the ever fluctuating nature of the business world. In the same right, if you print too many you may be left with an unnecessary amount of leftover cards resulting in nothing more than a waste of money. Printing your business cards should be a process in which not only design is of importance, but also quantity and understanding how much is enough.

What are your deciding factors? 

If you are in a line of work where you see many clients on a regular basis, for example if you are a rep, you will need a substantial amount of business cards to get you through the month. Work out on average how many meetings you have scheduled a day, how many clients are generally present in each meeting and how many days per week you see them. This will give you a rough formula of how many cards you will go through per month, enabling you to see how many cards you should get printed.

Always be aware of your surroundings 

Be conscious of your schedule and what you have planned for the month ahead. If you know you are expected to be present at an expo, conference or other social gathering, assume you will go through more cards during this month than usual and prioritise accordingly. This will ensure you are not caught red-handed with no ammo when it is needed most.
