There hasn’t been a time a client has come into our office where we haven’t heard the same scenario play out; “yeah… I guess, I’ll get business cards too…”, or, “I have to make some cards”. The reluctancy and despair in every client’s voice seems almost universal. Here, at Updog we sympathize and offer many solutions.
We know it can be annoying business to have something designed that everyone and their mother has, especially when trying to create new material to stand out. However, as leaders in helping small businesses grow, we can also tell you business cards are a must, an area to create exciting work, and help make first and long lasting impressions. Whether it’s personal cards or cards for a business there’s a myriad of possibilities when it comes to card designs. From thickness of card, paper finish such as gloss or satin, edge coloring, cut-outs, foil, and many more options, there’s just so many ways to create a conversation starting card. And that does happen. Any of our readers seen Christian Bale’s portrayal of Patrick Bateman, in American Psycho? Skip all of the scary movie stuff and get to the most important scene, the business card scene. It’s that important.
Jokes and horror movie references aside, business cards are a valuable leave behind, a small but effective tool to get your contact information out there, and something anyone should have any time of the day in case the need arises. There’s nothing worse than scrambling for a pen and paper or trying to get through all the buttons on your phone to find the “add” contact button. Plus it’s tactile and if designed right, eye catching.
