So whats makes a great business card?
In my opinion a business card is an absolute essential tool in any sales environment where a representative meets a potential customer. After all we all need to leave a lasting impression of quality. What sells more than great customer service, thats right, quality.
In an age where most business is so impersonal. The most cost effective ways to leave a lasting impression is to ‘sup up’ your business cards. Yes thats right we highlight a logo, foil block your name, round corner, print on plastic, print super thick, even have a usb drive pop out from inside the card.
You should always utilise your business cards as a piece of your company’s marketing plan. Furthermore it should work in conjunction with your existing print collateral, such as letterheads, compliment slips, envelopes even down to your delivery notes and invoices. This is because you need portray your company’s values and its approach to business through quality and strength of brand.
The very best introduction to your products and services
Business cards are part of your initial introduction to potential new clients, and are are extremely important for making a lasting first impression. Business cards will also enhance your company’s credibility, by creating professionalism and legitimacy for your business or service.
The very best business cards bear your business essentials. Your logo, your title, your contact details such as your location, any relevant contact numbers, email addresses, website details and any other pertinent information that you need potential clients to be informed about. They may also include social media addresses such as facebook , Linkedin and twitter details.
Speciality business cards
Here at Orb Design and Print we offer business cards can also be coated with a UV gloss coat. This coating can also be applied as a spot coating – meaning areas can be coated, and other areas can be left uncoated. This creates additional design potential and add that special touch of class to any card.
