These days it’s all about getting the most number of customers to patronize your business. The more, the merrier; there has never been a more precise statement to better describe how modern businesses operate. But how exactly do you get strangers to remember your business name and contact number when you’re speaking to them and persuading them by the hundreds? For that, you have the business card.
A business card is a miniature identification card bearing the essential details of a certain business or establishment for it to be properly identified and contacted by a prospective client or customer. Such details include the business name, its logo, its telephone number, its fax number (if applicable), the company’s street address, the company’s official website (if applicable), and its email address (email addresses are almost a must these days).
Traditionally, business cards used to be plain black and white. This makes it easier to read as well as professional-looking. But recent advances technology these days, especially in the respective fields of publishing and graphics design, have enabled companies to design and produce business cards that are both visually striking yet easy on the eyes. With business cards it’s all about getting your company to be remembered by the client, and getting the client to pick up your card first among a pile of other companies’ business cards.
Today, the best business card designs are those that strike the balance between science and art. A business card that’s too technical in design may seem dull and boring to the average person, and chances are that person won’t even remember having seen your card the next time. Too much art, on the other hand, and you run the risk of appearing unprofessional to your client.
Simply find the right balance when designing your business card. That’s where the distinction lies.
