What you need is your business cards to look great, slick and professional. Having a card that sets you apart from your competitors is a great first step at leaving an impression.
Having Pixelo design your business cards for you is the ideal way to ensure your cards look as good as possible and you squeeze out every bit of O factor from them as possible.
To create the perfect business card, it should have your name (pretty important), your job title, list of qualifications (if applicable), contact information (including address, email, phone, mobile, URL). On occasion, professional membership numbers are required on cards but that really is industry dependent. With all of this info on the card, we still need to make sure there is plenty of room for design and white space. You don’t want your card to appear too crowded.
Once you have the design in place, the next important part is the printing. You have many options here. A standard business card will be printed on roughly 400gsm paper stock, which is a good thick card. You can go for either gloss or matt in look and opt for laminate as an extra layer of durability for the cards. Adding features such as blind embossing, spot UV, gold foiling, silver foiling, die cutting, etc are all nice ways to give your card some personality and make them stand out from the countless other cards your prospective customers will be given.
For the best results, have a think about who the cards will be going to. What kind of impression do you want to make? You should spend as much as you are comfortable with and try to get the very best finish for the cards as possible, it will stand in the long run.
