How to Customize Your Business Cards
When we speak of business cards, the first thing that comes into our minds is a white piece of paper with contact information. This is the traditional design – it's safe and you can never go wrong. But in these contemporary days, the key to getting the market is by grabbing attention. So why settle for safe? Make custom business cards and start getting noticed.
Here are some ways you can customize your business cards:
Customize Size – From the standard size of 2" x 3.5", you can diverge to 1.75" x 3.5", 2" x 2" or any size within 4" x 4". Changing the size of your business card will surely make your business card stand out from a pile.
Customize Shape – Another way to make sure your card gets noticed immediately is by changing its shape. There are many options from rounded corners to business cards with a completely different shape like a slice of pizza, clouds, or a bottle.
Customize Design – From the traditional white piece of card, you can go bright and colorful. Add colors, images, and/or text effects to your design. You can also adopt creative styles and make typographic business cards, copy business cards, or illustration business cards.
Customize Function – A regular business card functions as a reference for contact information. Divert from this by incorporating additional functions. Make your business card an appointment card as well, print a calendar at the back, or give discounts if presented upon purchase of a product or service. Give your card a purpose beyond indicating how you can be contacted.
Customize Finishing – You can choose from gloss, matte, up to UV coating aside from the regular uncoated business card. Some printing companies even offer lamination, plastic cards, metallic cards, and more. Call your printing company and inquire what other services they offer.
Before printing or even before designing your business card, try to imagine the kind of look and feel you want it to have. Doing this will give you better judgment on what customization options you should apply to your business card. Don't get left behind, be an eye-catcher and get noticed now!
