I know what your thinking – business cards? Who even uses those anymore! But as someone who attends fairs, conferences, and seminars each week, you’d be amazed at how often business cards are still exchanged even with all the other types of technology we have these days. And when I receive a business card that is unique and stands out much more than the others, it makes an impact. So here are three ideas for creating awesome business cards that will put you ahead of your competition:
1. Loyalty Card
Now of course this type of business card will only work for certain types of businesses that offer either a product or service. But these ARE great for rewarding customers and continuing business. Don’t think that just because you aren’t a coffee shop you can’t offer customer loyalty cards! Any type of business can offer loyalty cards to their customers, whether you sell books, offer cleaning services, or offer printing services. This is also a great way to show your customers just how much you care! About online printing
2. Different Shapes
Don’t feel like you need to adhere to the standard rectangular business card shape! You can use many different shapes as well as they are easily “storable” for those you are giving your design business card out to. You can use rounded corners as opposed to pointed corners, square cards as opposed to rectangular, or have one side curved with the other side pointed. Play around with it and be creative – makes you appear more unique!
3. Metal Business Cards
Sounds crazy right? But I was at a printing conference in Las Vegas one year and some man gave me a lightweight metal business card – it was very cool! The actual term for these types of business cards are “laser-cut business cards” and to give you a better idea of what they look like, check out this link http://cardrabbit.com/category/laser-cut-business-cards/. Of course these cost much more than the typical paper cards, but they will make a lasting impression!
