In today's fast-paced business world, many professionals choose to send their business cards via e-mail and cell phone-messaging systems. Business cards are essential for exchanging information and keeping in touch with future business proposals.
Entrepreneurs choose e-mail and cell phones to trade business cards because it costs nothing, doesn't have to bother with printing, and is quick and simple. But the truth of the matter is that emails and cell phones, along with business cards, are either deleted without notice or forgotten. If you're sending it by email or cell phone, there's no way to impress or influence the person you're sending the business card to.
So how do you make the right impression? Your pure gold business cards is like a souvenir for your company and you, so make sure it is attractive and tasteful. Use easy-to-read colors, fonts, and sizes that go well together and include your company logo. Your font should not be smaller than 7 or 8 points. Try and include something new in your card so the recipient can use it in some way.
If the receiver finds it useful, he'll keep it in a handy place where he sees or uses it every day and you'll be more likely to remember it when the time comes. Some professionals make their business cards useful by printing a calendar on one side of their business card, printing their business card on magnets, pens, and more.
One aspect of the card that most people overlook is the printing paper used. Printing paper is the most important thing when designing your business card. This is the piece of paper that will hold all the information you want to provide to potential business professionals interested in doing business with you. Make sure you maintain a professional image by choosing high-quality paper. Like gifting someone cheap wine, a card printed on low-quality paper will give a bad image and reduce your credibility.
