We're guessing you already have a set of tried-and-true business cards…but are you getting the most out of those seven square inches? (Yep - that's how much space you have to make a first impression on potential customers.)
In a survey of 2,000 people, 63% said that having a quality business card makes a good impression. And 60% said they'd be more likely to use a business that has a unique or memorable card. It's a brand new year - so how can you own your brand's style with a business card that stands out?
Here, our Business Card Design Team shares tips for getting the most out of each of these designs:
- Foil accent business cards
- Embossed gloss business cards
- Rounded corner business cards
- Standard business cards
Plus, you can see what Vistaprint customers have to say about their experiences with these business cards.
Foil accent business cards
A little bit of shine goes a long way – we love foil accents for almost any business card, especially one with a high-contrast design and bold typography. The reflective finish is instantly eye-catching and is sure to make potential clients do a double-take.
Embossed gloss business cards
Add dimensional detail to your card with embossed gloss - your customers will instantly notice the unique look and feel. Use embossed gloss to highlight any design element on your business card (like your logo or your name) with a glossy, 3D shine. Make sure to use high-contrast colors to maximize this effect.
Rounded corner business cards
Though 72% of survey participants prefer the standard rectangular business card shape, comments noted that an uncommon shape is advantageous for being remembered. Our solution? Rounded corner cards.
Though they're the same size and general shape as a standard business card, the rounded corners adds a unique, understated element that's memorable.
Standard business cards
Standard business cards still hold their own, especially since they're familiar to professionals and customers alike. There are endless ways to customize an ordinary card to suit your small business needs, whether with a custom design or vibrant visual.
