So you’re meeting a new client. You smell good, look great and feel fantastic. You greet the client with a friendly smile and a firm handshake. That’s step #1 of a good impression. Then you hand over your business card, and here’s the important question: does your business card represent quality?
Business cards are one of the essentials, the all important link between conversation and conversion. Your smile represents your service, but your business card represents your brand. You have to get it right!
Luckily, our experienced and qualified graphic designers have the knowledge and skill set required to create a business card that will help you to stand out from the rest. Burst has a huge range of quality business card design, printing and finishing options to select from, with a turnaround of as little as 3 days!
Does your business card represent your brand? Colour scheme, layout, branding and style are all very important elements of a business card’s design. A good business card should be exciting, unique, fresh, customised, and last but not least, relevant! Templates can destroy a brand’s individuality. Here at Burst, we start every design with a blank page.
Will your business card stand the test of time? So you have a wicked design – great! But what if your business card gets wet? What if it ends up being buried in a wallet for months or passed on to 10 different people? Make sure you’re getting both quality design and quality printing. There might be cheap business cards available out there, but what do they say about your organisation? Avoid thin, flimsy, uncoated business cards. We only print on (minimum) 300gsm cardstock and we always recommend lamination or UV varnishing.
Does your business card contain just enough information? This is an important balance to consider, and the right amount varies depending on your business. Put too much information on it, and your business card could wind up ignored and forgotten. At Burst, we take the time to analyse your organisation and make suggestions on what to include. Getting this right will often determine whether your phone rings, your email dings, your website… well, you get the idea.
Frequently asked questions…
Can you print just 100 business cards? I don’t need many.
Our design work and setup absorb the majority of our business card production costs, so even though we can print just 100 cards, it will only cost you an extra $5 for 500 cards! Once you start handing them out, you’ll be amazed at how quickly they vanish.
Do I really need business cards? I’m already getting enough work without them.
Perhaps now it’s time to think about how you can add value to your product or service. If you want to charge a premium, you have to provide a premium service.
Aren’t all business cards the same? I can get some online for $10!
You generally get what you pay for, and there’s a big difference between cheap business cards and premium business cards.
