A professional business card needs to fit the branding of your business, display your logo prominently, and highlight your website and contact details, so the people you connect with can find you online, on social, or via email.
Gone are the days when people carried their business cards with them so that they could give these small paper business cards to colleagues and business associates. The small paper business cards where often made of high quality paper that included business and contact information of the person. Nowadays people are opting to create virtual business cards that are online business cards that can be directly sent to associates directly online.
The most common business card size is 84 mm by 55 mm, or 3.5 inches by 2 inches. You can go bigger, but if you do your cards are less likely to be kept. If you go smaller, you have a better shot, as long as they still fit in a typical card folio. Any non-traditional size is going to cost you more money.
Are you considering getting a new business card? If you have recently launched a new business, then a professional, visually-engaging business card is a must have. Maybe you have a critical event coming up? A pivotal client meeting that is fast-approaching? Or, another all-too-important event that you need brand new business cards for.
