Business cards are printed materials with a company or individual’s business information. They are considered to be one of the handiest print materials that you can use to promote your products or services. With their small sizes, it’s convenient to hand out these cards during formal introductions and share contact information with prospective clients and business associates. Typically, a business card contains an individual’s name, company name and logo as well as address, phone numbers, email and website.
In terms of design, business cards can be as simple as black text on white paper or card stock for cheap business card printing. They can also have more design elements to add visual appeal; some cards even include photos. The two business card shape options you have are standard and die-cut. In choosing a business card size or shape, make sure that they would complement the card’s design and theme. Also, make sure to look for a printing company that can give you print results worthy of your money.
