Aside from the actual text information on your business cards, be sure that the style is in line with your business to further enforce your company’s branding.
A Few Ideas…
- Have business cards made in the same color scheme as your company’s logo.
- Do you have a luxury brand? Be sure to show luxury in the type of cards you order. Some ideas are shiny metal business cards or matte-colored plastic business cards reminiscent of exclusive credit cards.
- Is your company based on creativity such as graphic design, interior design or fashion? Show that you’re an expert with a great eye and really get something special to wow with your networking. Make your cards truly unique!
- Use colors to express a theme. For example, primary colors or pastel colors are great for children’s clothing stores or nursery schools. Metallic colors and darker colors go great for nightclub establishments and lounges. Cards for doctor’s practices and the like should stick to simple, muted, serious colors and traditional business card styles such as linen business cards.
- You can even have a photo representing what your company does such as the pictured spa business card.
A Little Lesson
Raised letter business cards are printed using a special heat technology (thermography) so that the end product results in letters in ink that are higher than the actual surface of the paper.
Why Choose Raised Letter Business Cards?
The cards look incredible and they also feel incredible. They show attention to detail and professionalism and they look just as great with a monochromatic color scheme (such as white on white) or with the use of varying colors.
Students also benefit greatly by having business cards on hand. In this tight job market, students need to be ready for any opportunity that comes up to network and to market themselves.
A business card for a student should include his/her name, phone number, email address (professional email addresses only – not silly titles from high school), website (if applicable), major of study and any internship he or she is currently participating in.
The style is a personal preference – matte business cards, raised letter business cards, silk business cards… Feel free to use one side of the business card to briefly list skills such as Photoshop, Illustrator, AutoCAD and more.
Students in creative majors should experiment with fonts, colors, shapes, etc. to show their hand at design. Good luck!
