Business Card Tips: What Does Your Business Card Say About You?

Within the first 3 seconds, your prospect will assess whether you are professional, trustworthy and worth doing business with. What’s the takeaway? Your business card can make or break that crucial first impression.

Here are 3 key business card tips to make sure you are sending the right message.

1. Make It Full Color

Colors evoke emotions. Take advantage of color psychology when designing your business card. Instead of a plain white background, consider printing full color business cards or adding a color insert along the edge of Sandwich Business Cards for a pop of color.  Color Psychology infographic

2. Use a Heavy Card Stock

Want to truly impress? Appeal to a more affluent client base by upgrading your card stock. One of the first things people notice is the thickness and heaviness of the business card.

Opt for a 15pt premium business card, or if you’re bold enough, go for a 34pt Fat Business Card to really stand out in a stack.
