Your business card does not have to be a conventional card with your contact information. Think outside the box and take advantage of the many specialty printing techniques to make your card stand out. Below are some suggestions on how to create a card that will be saved for future reference:
Keep It Simple
The only information that belongs on a business card is your name, job title, email address, phone number, and website. If there is too much information to absorb then it is not doing its job of introducing you quickly. Make sure the logo used on it matches your brand and is the same as on your website. Linking to your social media profiles should only belong on your website but a LinkedIn portfolio is okay to mention on the card if you don’t have a website. A little goes a long way–minimalism is key.
There are so many unique printing techniques which could upgrade your business card while displaying your sense of individuality. You can use metallic or clear foil stamping, die cutting, spot UV, and matte or gloss finish to change the appearance and feel of the card. You can consider using different materials, like metal or plastic, as well. The cards can even be useful objects like USBs, bottle openers, a stencil or include interesting reference information. The possibilities are endless you just have to get creative with it.
