Why you need a great business card printing supplier

30 October 2017

In this impersonal, all-digital age of communication, the business card remains a bastion of efficiency. Giving one at a meeting, expo or other event takes less than a second, no fumbling for phones or guessing wildly at email and name spellings. It also represents one of the few examples of the personal touch that remains valid across all areas of business.

If the technology-obsessed Japanese still have a whole ritual around the passing of business cards, the rest of the world should be clear about their importance. So, along with all your other business stationery, ensure your printing supplier can provide a high-quality, good-looking set of business cards to help smooth introductions, provide a physical reminder of a meeting and help promote your business.

Business cards are a great marketing tools

Some professional business card designs can say more about you than just your contact details. Even for the most technology-focused company, it shows that you are aware of business conventions, understanding the benefits of simplicity and efficiency. Just look at any attendee at an event trying to meet and greet without business cards, it can be painful to watch.

They also help to promote you and your company. They make a good first impression and most cards now feature the brand, a company message or mission statement and general web link. After a busy day of meetings or events, that makes it easier for the recipient to remember who you are and what you do down the line. Done well, the business card can demonstrate your company is cutting-edge, reliable or traditional, getting over the perfect message to promote what it does.

Start conversations with business cards

One of the key benefits of having business cards is their use as an ice-breaker, especially at many of the forums, symposia or sales expo social events business workers find themselves at. While networking might be easier in the digital age, in a room full of strangers or peers, there’s nothing like a small bit of card to help get you into an interesting conversation, or to get to talk to important people in your industry.
