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.
Everything we do in business today is digital -- sending mail, signing contracts, attending meetings, even networking. The business card is one thing that digital will not fully replace anytime soon.
Standard business cards are printed on cardstock, but you can opt for wood, slate, plastic or metal. This is another fantastic way to create a business card that will be kept and remembered. Not every printer offers plastic, wood, or metal business card prints, so if you are interested in this treatment make sure to source your printer before designing your cards. If you are using plastic, consider whether you want frosted, opaque or transparent and design accordingly.
