Do not forget that the back of your business card is prime real estate to make use of. Add a business card background design that’s meaningful to your brand or business. Showcase images of your work. Or give a special offer, promote a high value giveaway, or direct prospects to an engaging landing page.
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.
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.
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.
