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.
A creative business card is memorable. It makes a positive impression when you hand it to a new contact or potential client. You want your business card to have a unique design—one that carries a visual punch. These are just a few reasons why it may be time for a new business card design. If you are planning your business card design right now, then scroll down for some visual inspiration.
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.
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.
