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 business card is a physical object that a potential prospect leaves the encounter with. Your brand stays with them. If you meet a prospect and exchange email addresses and phone numbers you each walk away with another contact on your mobile phone -- it ends there. If you hand over a creative business card that makes a great impression that person is likely to show it to other people -- putting you and your brand in front of additional prospects.
Most business cards are paper, although there are lots of other options, from plastic and wood to metal and slate. Assuming you go with paper, you need to choose thickness, coating, color and weight. All of these can affect the price.
If your company is all business, your cards should be too; stick to classic designs with minimalist looks and elegant fonts and colors. If your brand is more creative, artistic or playful, you’ve got liberty to use bold images, arresting colors, unusual shapes or humor to get your message across.
