Why You Need a Business Card

business cardEven though we live in the digital age and can exchange contact information almost instantly, business cards are still an important part of your brand identity package.

Why? It's a tangible reminder of a business encounter and an easy way to provide all your contact information in one fell swoop.

History of Business Cards

Business Cards have been around for centuries. They originated in 17th century France as calling cards that a visitor's servant would present to his or her host's servant upon arrival at the host's home. These early cards featured the visitor's name and often drawn or printed design.

Business Card Design Tips

Obviously, your business card should include your name, phone number, email address and business logo, but it's important to make your business card stand out. You can do this in a variety of ways, including paper choice and printing embellishments like foil stamping.

Other methods for making your business cards stand out include:
• Die cuts
• Embossing
• Glow-in-the-dark ink
• Unconventional shapes
• Unconventional substrates, such as cork or plastic

We also like the idea of including a spot where you can write down the occasion of your meeting, so your contact will have an easier time remembering you.
