In this fast-paced world first impressions are often fleeting. As a business owner this can prove to be especially troublesome. How can one make a worthwhile impression out of a quick encounter with a potential client?
I mean, think about it, a business card is essentially a 3.5x2in. (give or take depending or your stylistic preferences) expression of what your company is all about! Do you really want to be handing out a flimsy little pre-designed card that more than likely, is being used by hundreds of other business owners? I think not!
Come along with me on a journey as we explore a variety ways to make your business cards permanent items in wallets everywhere!
DON’T SKIMP ON MATERIAL
A simple, yet effective way of making your cards stand out amongst the rest is upping your game on material. Even simply increasing the gauge of your card stock can go a long way in conveying to your audience your attention to detail.
Want to get really crazy? How about printing on unconventional materials! Plastic. Metal. Wood. These all are excellent choices to keep your cards from getting the can!
Check out what 405 Decks did with their cards. These babies were printed on eastern red cedar! Not only do they look awesome, but they smell awesome too!
THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX…ERRRR…RECTANGLE
Tired of your conventional rectangular shaped cards? Look no further, die cut business cards are here to save the day! With die cut business cards, you can tailor your card to whatever shape your heart desires. Hearts, stars and horse shoes, clovers, and blue moons, pots of gold and rainbows, and a red ballon! There’s no doubt your cards will make the cut with this option.

LET IT SHINE, LET IT SHINE, LET IT SHINE
You can have the best of both worlds by adding a spot gloss to your business cards! Spot gloss allows you to keep certain sections of your card matte while highlighting other sections with a glossy sheen. Just a warning though, these cards can be particularly hypnotizing! No, we’re not just saying that because they’re ours. Okay…maybe we are.
FOIL. IT’S NOT JUST FOR BAKING ANYMORE!
A sure fire way to class your business cards up is with foil! Yes, foil! With beautiful metal tones like gold and sliver, you can be certain your cards will be dazzling their way in to the hands of potential clients.
Look how ridiculously stunning Aria Real Estate Group’s business cards are! This gold foil in combination with a beautifully mounted navy linen just oozes with sophistication.
