Know How to Print Out Cards for Your Boutique Business


If you think that handing out elegant business cards is irrelevant in today’s business environment, think again. It has, in fact, become even more important because brands have become more image-centric. With the popularity of Instagram, Facebook, and other social media accounts, you need to be conscious about the image that you are portraying as a brand. If you will hand over a poorly-designed business card that’s printed on thin paper, what image do you think will be left in the minds of your clients or potential customers? They will most likely think that you are offering poor-quality products or services as well. To prevent this from happening, it does pay to invest in thick business cards or fancy business cards, especially if you are in the creative industry. Here, we will delve a bit deeper into how you can print out elegant business cards if you are a boutique business owner.

What is a Boutique Business, Anyway?

What exactly is a boutique business? Basically, boutique business owners sell specialty or high-end products in a very limited amount. If you built a brick-and-mortar boutique, you might specialize in selling evening dresses and casual wear, or bridal gowns. It doesn’t necessarily have to be clothing – selling any line of specialized products will make your business fall under the boutique category. There are also boutique businesses with purely online instead of physical stores. 

If you are a boutique business owner, it pays to keep your space and inventory small. That’s actually the appeal of boutique businesses – the limited products make it easier for customers to select what they want. If you give them a practically endless selection, it is more difficult for them to choose and they might end up not purchasing anything at all. If the items are difficult to find, you can build a niche market for yourself and they will keep on coming back to the store to buy your items or pay for your services. Once your boutique business is up and running, continue catering to your niche market and buy inventory or offer the services that’s specifically suitable for them.  

Elegant Business Cards for Your Boutique Business

Whether your boutique business is up and running or if you are still on the start-up stages, it is important to design elegant business cards that will suit the image that you want to portray as a business. Since you are catering to a specific clientele, you need to design the business card in such a way that it appeals to them.

If you are specializing in bridal dresses, for example, go for 32pt business cards with a white linen, soft touch suede, or silk laminated finish. The thicker then business card is, the more impressed your bridal customers would be. For really fancy business cards, go with 16-pt. metallic ink, or raised gold foil in gold, silver, or copper. Weddings are a grand occasion, so they deserve nothing but an equally grand business card as a representation.
On the other hand, if your boutique business has a more niche clientele, you can pick thick business cards that go with your logo’s design. If you have a bold logo, you can go with spot gloss business cards where a specific area of the car is glossy while the other areas have a matte finish. You can further customize thick business cards by going for the rounded corner option, painted edge, or a three-layer black core option.

How to Look for the Best Elegant Business Cards Printing Company

Investing in well-designed, thick business cards is a must if you are a boutique business. You might think about printing the cards yourself, but there is no matching the quality of professional printing companies. Here are a few tips on how you can look for the best printing company to order fancy business cards from:

  • Digital versus offset.

When you are launching a print promotional campaign, ultra thick business cards are not the only things that you need to print. You should also think about including brochures, flyers, banners, notepads, letterheads, and postcards. When looking for a printing company, you can take your pick from digital printers and offset printers. What’s the difference between the two?

Digital printing companies use desktop printers to deliver the goods, be it 100 pieces business cards or 200 pieces flyers. Although they can do a pretty good job of printing business cards in small batches, offset printing is still the better choice if you want professional-looking results and speed.

Offset printing companies use state-of-the-art printing presses with colour correction technology. This means that the prints have more vivid colours and sharpness. Offset printers can also handle complex printing jobs. Let’s say that you want ultra thick business cards with a painted edge for your boutique business. This is not something that can be handled my most digital printers. Silk or luster laminated cards are other examples of complex printing jobs that offset printers are better at handling. Once the process has been set, you can also rely on offset printers to do a speedy job of it for you. You can print hundreds or even thousands of business cards and have it delivered straight to your doorstep within 24 hours.

  • Be detail-oriented!

There are different sizes of business cards available. The standard US size is 2” x 3.5”. European size is 2.125” x 3.375”; square business cards measure 2.5” on all sides; while slim skinny business cards measure 1.75” x 3.5”. With such small space available, customers will notice even the tiniest flaw on your card! If you spelled the street address wrong, it will painfully stand out because of the concise information that the card contains.

When printing ultra thick business cards, pay attention to even the smallest details. Your logo will most likely be included so make sure that it’s drawn properly on the surface. Use the right font and font size, and decide on the colors that will blend with the logo. How much information do you want to include in ultra thick business cards? If you only have an online store, there is no need for you to include your office address. If your business is mostly online, make sure to engage customers by including your website, email address, Facebook page, and official Twitter handle or Instagram name.

If you must include a photo or an illustration in your business card, make sure that it looks professionally shot or drawn. Match the overall design with the thickness of the paper and the finish. You can also go for special add-on finishes like raised gold foil, foil, raised spot gloss, spot gloss, metallic ink, rounded corners, painted edge, or three-layer black core.

  • Check on the quality of service and experience.

A good printing company to order thick business cards from is one that can deliver good quality service. Do they quickly reply to inquiries? Do they have good client testimonials on the site? If they have social media accounts, do they get mostly good reviews? When it comes to length of experience, how long have they been in the printing industry? Aside from elegant business cards, do they also print brochures, notepads, letterheads, and novelty promotional items?

  • How about the costs and turnaround time?

Of course, you also need to take costs into account. Make a comparison of the rates offered by different printing companies. How much will they charge you for 100 pieces of 32pt business cards with a silk laminate finish? Does company A charge a higher or lower fee for the same printing job compared to company B?

  • Other things to look for.

If it’s your first time dealing with a specific printing company, look for a reprint guarantee in case they fail to deliver the goods within the promised time. Similar to when you are taking advantage of any type of service, there should be a guarantee that you will be delivered what is promised as a customer. Also check on how long they have been in the business, where their printing facilities are located, and if they offer tools that you can use to design your 32 pt business cards.

There are companies which provide online tools or downloadable templates that customers can use when designing  ultra thick business cards. What’s good about this feature is that you will save on costs – there’s no need for you to hire a professional graphic designer to do it for you. When going for the DIY or do-it-yourself option, however, make sure that you already have a professional-looking logo because this is what will be incorporated in all of your printed promotional products.

Distributing Elegant Business Cards

Once you already have your hands on brown kraft 32 pt business cards for your organic food boutique business, how exactly should you distribute them? It will be great if you can distribute ultra thick business cards during trade shows, public assemblies, and similar events where there are a lot of people attending. Bring those fancy business cards with you when going out because you will never know when you might run into a potential customer, client, or even business partner.

If you have a brick-and-mortar store, display those fancy business cards near the counter and encourage customers to get one to give to their friends and family. You can also include a business card in every receipt, packaged product, gift to suppliers, mailers, etc. When sending out postcards, include a business card to let customers know exactly how to get in touch with you. If you are printing rack cards, there are sizes which come with the detachable business card option. This is a creative way of getting your contact information across to a wider audience.

Use Boutique Business Cards as Part of Your Overall Print Promotional Campaign

You may have the best-looking business card in the market but if you will not get it into the hands of those who need to know about your business, then all your printing efforts will be wasted. Before even thinking about designing a business, create a draft of an overall print marketing campaign. You may also want to consider printing brochures, flyers, notepads, letterheads, and similar promotional materials.

More importantly, your print marketing campaign should work alongside a strategic digital marketing campaign. You may have customers who are old school and traditional, but most people have their sights on digital content. If you don’t have a website – unless you’re a mom-and-pop establishment – your business might as well not exist.

In the end, it’s all about blending the traditional with the digital. With the help of well-designed business cards, you can have a physical representation of what you are all about as a brand. This will make people notice your boutique business, and contribute to your growth and increase in customer base, as well as profits.

 

 

 
How to Pick The Right Paper Feature
Our lead setup technician of 14 years, Angela Moskal, speaks on picking the right paper features. Hint: Raised spot uv gloss on suede material.

 

ANGELA MOSKAL: Hey guys! I am so delighted to help you with picking the best paper finish. As a designer myself, i often go back and forth on paper features such as gold foil, spot uv or rounded corners. My go-to always is the raised spot uv on the soft touch suede 19pt business cards. It is simply perfect for anyone looking to impress.

PAPER FEATURES:

• GOLD FOIL STAMPED BUSINESS CARDS (the ultimate wow card): I absolutely LOVE the look of our gold foil stamped business cards - offered on our 17pt silk laminated business cards, 19pt soft touch business cards and our 32pt business cards. Nothing impresses more than gold. May it be on jewelry, watches, business cards or any luxurious trimmings. Like all things in life, the time and place has to call for it. Gold has inspired civilizations for thousands of years, stemming back to Ancient Greece and Egypt. For business cards, the industry you are in has to call for it. It has to represent you and must be done tastefully. An all-black or all-white business cards with minimal gold foil in areas such as your name or web address whispers elegance. If you are looking to dominate an image, gold foil stamped business cards will get compliments 10 out of 10 times. You cannot ever go wrong with it but your company theme and your personality must support it. Flat foil stamping is available for our 17pt silk laminated business cards and our 32pt business cards. We also have a raised gold foil business cards on our 19pt soft touch business cards which is my personal favorite. The perfect feature that applies to all industries is the raised spot uv gloss which i discuss next. Our foil stamping also comes in many other colors such as red foil, blue foil, copper foil, or silver foil.

• SPOT UV GLOSS BUSINESS CARDS (the perfect all-around feature for all industries): There is the flat spot uv gloss and the raised spot gloss effect that we offer. The raised spot gloss is a feature that allows you to add gloss only to desired areas in a heightened feel, such as a logo outline while leaving the rest of the card a natural matte finish. The flat spot uv gloss is the same effect but without the added height to the gloss. The names self describe them. Many clients do not want much flash on their card and the absolute best business card feature to always go with is the spot uv gloss. It adds a major wow effect without going overboard. It makes your logos pop much nicer. The flat spot uv is very neat but the raised spot gloss business cards are in a class of their own. You will always get the best compliments on raised gloss no matter your industry. Raised spot gloss is available on our soft touch business cards, also known as suede business cards.

• ROUNDED CORNER BUSINESS CARDS: Rounded business cards have been around forever and are very popular among clients that want to show a more playful side without getting into complex features such as gold, silver, spot uv or metallic inks. You can say it is the easiest and simplest feature to a business card. The rounded edge business cards are available for most of our paper finishes such as our 14pt, 16pt, 17pt, and 19pt card stocks.

• THE PERFECT BUSINESS CARD FEATURE (for all above average occasions): If I was going with just one feature it would no doubt be the raised spot uv on the soft touch business cards that have the 19pt thickness. I have yet to hear a client say they do not like them. Many call them the best business cards they have ever printed or felt. Pairing both soft touch suede and raised gloss makes it subtle but ultra-unique to the fingertips. You have to try it to appreciate it. Even clients who had no interested in anything impressive end up sticking with it on all their reprints. It does not disappoint!

I hope i have helped share some of my insight and experience on my personal favorite, our staff's favorites and our client favorites which universally seems to be our soft touch suede with option raised spot uv gloss.

Dream big,

Angela Moskal

 

 

How to Design The Perfect Business Card
Our lead graphic designer of 11 years, Michael Parker, speaks on picking the perfect design. Hint: Perfection is what represents you!

 

MICHAEL PARKER: My dear friends! A pleasure to share my lifes work with you. I have designed for clients such as NASA, Lego Toys, Whole Foods, Arm & Hammer and Warner Brothers Studios to share a few of my projects.

GRAPHIC DESIGN TIPS AND ADVICE:

• BEST COLORS TO USE: Colors undoubtedly play a big role in human psychology. Red says urgency, blue says safe and calm, black purs luxury, shades of green speak peacefully, orange and yellows are friendly and optimistic while gray says balance and neutrality. The colors to choose depend on the emotion to wish to evoke. Restaurant owners should always stick to black, reds, and yellows as those are warm colors that tie into food. A banker or real estate agent tends to do well with blues or greens. If you are in a creative or fun line of work, you can incorporate any color that you personally desire. There is no right or wrong, purely preference but if you are looking to add color to business cards that you wish to be safe with, it is best to follow the color emotion rules that are proven in psychology that i share above. Muted colors show a calmer tone to your business. Neon colors show excitement. If you are in any professional business the colors you choose also fall into the personality of your business. What i like to do when designing the perfect business cards is i create 2-3 very different versions and i ask the opinion of 10 people. I ask them how they feel or percieve the business based on the look. I like to stay nuetral to my work and not fall in love with it so asking others for their option in the end will be the ultimate guide to knowing if you have chosen the perfect colors.

• HOW BIG TEXT SIZE SHOULD BE: TThere is no right or wrong text size but there is certainly the rule of never going below the 11pt size. Big text can always be seen as fun or creative but very small text can be frustrating and be seen as poor design work. Small text is certainly creative and modern. Small text is subtle but too small of text is a failed attempt at a modern look. The perfect font size for people of all ages, young or mature is around 12pt. If you wish to get creative you can always pair a large font at around 22pt but you should always stick to no more than 2 font suizes in one design. If you have 7 lines of text and all 7 have different sizes your business cards can look very cluttered.

• WHAT CRUCIAL INFO SHOULD BE PRESENT: All contact method of your choice shall be added on there. If you do not wish to have clients call you at random hours of the day, its best to leave operation hours or an email only. Some of our clients leave just a web address as they want to drive traffic to their site and not to a phone rep. One thing for certain is you should always add your logo, the rest is purly up to you and how you wish to operate your business contacts.

• WHEN TO ADD PHOTOS: Real estate agents and sales agents tend to always add photos of themselves to their color business cards as the service provided is branded to them personally. Photographers also add a landscape photo to their business card printing. Rarely ever does a photograph belong on a professional business card but if you choose to add a photograph it is always best to add it to only one side.

• OVERALL PERFECTION: The perfect business card feedback i receive from clients is always one with neatly organized text that is minimal in colors (2 colors max). The best business cards tend to be simple, minimalistic but with add on features such as spot uv gloss or enhanced paper such as silk laminated business cards or soft touch business cards with suede laminate. A simple business card design can become many times more impressive just by boosting the paper thickness and feel.

In all my years of designing business cards, i have found one thing that works best - when in doubt, keep it simple and go with a nicer paper.

To be creative is to be truly alive,

Michael Parker
