First impressions last – from the time you shake hands, to the moment you exchange business cards, your potential business partner will probably pay attention to all the little details. In the business world, it’s important to put our best foot forward each and every time. And to make sure that you leave a lasting good impression, it’s best to leave behind a high-quality business card.
Business cards aren’t simply random pieces of paper with your information – business cards tell your potential business partners just who you are and what kind of work you do. The detail that goes into your business card plays an important role in whether or not someone will contact you in the future, so it’s important to take the look and style of our cards into careful consideration. There are only five things we really need to take care of when designing an effective business card, and Ottawa Print is here to walk you through the whole process.
Handing out little scraps of paper with your name and number might not last long enough, especially if it’s just going to get crumpled and folded up in someone’s wallet. Making use of high-quality paper or board will prolong the life of your business card and ensure that people will still be able to read your information and contact you even if time passes by.
A clear, eye-catching design is always a good idea. This means your potential business partner will never lose sight of your card, no matter where it’s tucked away in their wallet. Bonus points if you incorporate your company’s colours.
There’s nothing more ineffective than a business card without enough information. If you want your potential partners to be able to reach you with ease, make sure you provide them with enough information so you’re never too hard to contact.
Placing your company logo won’t only boost client recognition, it also improves trust. By making use of an attractive company logo, you associate yourself with the business and thus put yourself in a position to receive more calls from potential partners.
It’s always fun to read catchy slogans, so why not put one on your card? A catch phrase that’s not only witty but also easy to remember will ensure that clients will remember you, even when they don’t have your business card in their hands.
I just received my very first order that I placed with you, and wanted to let you know that I am extremely happy with the final product. Being a graphic designer, I have worked with many local printers, and I tend to be very picky, but your service is perfect. It is trimmed properly, the colours look great, and the spot varnish is very precise. On top of that it arrived at my door a day earlier than estimated! I was a little hesitant to place the order at first because I could not believe that I can get 18pt thick cards with a matte lamination at such a competitive price, but I'm so happy with the purchase that my next printing job is already in the works. I will definitely be recommending your services to all my clients. Thank you very much for a great customer experience.
I received the new cards today and I'm happy to say they're great! I'll be sure to use your services again and recommend you to others.
Thank you for the fast and excellent service!
