Look at an old card; it most likely displays a name, title, fax number, toll-free number, and physical address. That info is still relevant, but in the eyes of the customers, it’s outdated and not memorable. Make sure your new business card design has updated information such as website, email addresses and social media profiles.
Social Media enables another avenue for customers to reach out to you and communicate. Make sure you look to see what personal information it contains too.
Social media continues to grow and is important in today’s business world. Keeping up to date with your customers is important, and social media allows businesses to directly communicate with them at any time.
If you have social media accounts, try to incorporate that information into your new card. The trend today is to create an impression that extends beyond the company to the individual.
It allows customers to contact you using current methods of communication; otherwise, you are limiting your networking capabilities.
Business Card Design
A sharp logo used to be the best way to set a company apart and define its brand. With today’s advances in technology and printing capabilities, a custom business card has more than just logos. Typography, imagery, colors, and orientation are all necessary tools to make your unique and one-of-a-kind printed business card stand out from other cards. The image below is a silver foil business card printed on 16PT silk card stock.
Vertical cards are eye-catching and a popular choice. Also, people don’t have or use a Rolodex anymore, so smaller cards that can fit into a wallet are essential. Business cards with above average thickness, such as 16PT business cards look professional and handle the newer engraving and embossing trends well.
