Two individuals with their heads buried in their phones typing away woould not create any kind of significant memory of the encounter. You can easily transfer the information from a business card to your mobile device after the conversation.
Special finishes can make your cards stand out. Metallic ink, foil blocking, and spot-UV are special finishes that are perfect for helping your cards stand out in a crowd. These details can maintain a simple, classic look but add a level of elegance and memorability to your business cards.
For many businesses, one of the biggest challenges of designing business cards is coming up with something truly original. Fortunately, there are plenty of great ways to break away from the norm and create something truly striking. Special treatments are like shiny objects (sometimes literally): they can be very exciting and appealing. But do not let your original excitement make you go overboard. Choosing one two unique elements will let you stand out without being gaudy.
If you met two individuals and one was scrambling to find a pen and something to write on and the other person simply pulled out a business card, who would you want to do business with? Showing that you are prepared at all times is a great indicator that you are professional.
