Business cards are the quintessential piece that represents you and your company once an introduction has ended. Below are some tips to stand out when designing your business card.
1. Make them conversation starters: Consider different techniques to stand out. Use a unique die-cut pattern (square, folded, rounded corners, 3.5x1, etc.), a custom paper or include a unique image like a google barcode.
2. Include media links: This is a unique way to keep the conversation alive and display your business on a personal level. Include these links (i.e., facebook, twitter, linkedin) on the backside of the card, or in place of your fax number.
3. Customize, customize, customize: Going to a big conference and know that you're going to hand out a lot of cards at a niche trade show? Order a small amount of 250 or 500 and include a graphic or tag-line that speaks to that audience.
