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.
Laser cuts, die cuts and presses can leave a striking void in or pattern on your card. This kind of design can make your card memorable, because it looks and feels one-of-a-kind—just like your business. Folds give your cards a sophisticated look and also allow you more room for information and design elements.
And how do your current business card designs look, is their design still current, or are they starting to look dated? Would you feel excited and proud handing them to a new lead? You want your cards to come across as vibrant, modern, and fresh. They need to represent your brand and business, carry the personality and message of your company, and encourage prospects to connect with you.
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.
