When ordering business cards online, you should definitely use your creative juices to make your card stand out. There are many companies offering digital and offset printing for all your printed advertising needs. This makes it easy to go through the process of looking for a suitable business card print service.
However, the challenge lies in designing a card that will make your brand or name as a professional stand out. Check out our list of ideas on how you can creatively order premium business cards:
- Go for the not-a-stickler-for-rules business cards.
Thin linen business cards with an elegant typeface are typical, so which card are you supposed to have made if you want to stand out? How about a puzzle business card? Make it look like part of your corporate giveaway. Once the puzzle is solved, it should have a picture of your company logo. This is a quirky yet effective way of spreading the word about your brand.
Another idea is to have an origami design on the card. It can be two or three dimensional. The unique, delicate shape will leave a lasting impression to the recipient of your card. Using out-of-the-box materials is another way to make your business card stand out. Metal and even wood business cards are becoming increasingly popular.
- How about smaller than usual business cards?
Edgy, odd, non-traditional – mini business cards are also being embraced by entrepreneurs. The typical card is sized 2” x 3” – and anything smaller than that is considered a mini. You can go for square 2” x 2” cards for a non-traditional look or a gum-sized card where your contact information is printed out. The only problem with this type of a business card is that they do not fit into wallets or purses, and can easily get lost in a large handbag.
- Traditional-sized but still a standout
Finally, if you want to stick to the 2” x 3” business card, go for a non-traditional material, laminate, or design. Same-sized cards with rounded corners will give you that stand out factor. Or, look for unique laminates like a metallic foil – or take the completely opposite route with velvet- or silk-like laminates which leave a fabric effect on the paper. You can also go for see-through plastic cards or neon-colored cards.
There are dozens of ways for you to stand out when having business cards made, you just need to look for a creative way to make your brand stand out.
