Business cards are small cards carrying business details about an individual or a company. They are mostly shared during official introductions as a memory aid and a convenience. With the proliferation of networking and busy lives, business cards have become an important business commodity that is used by both, individuals and corporations. Business cards may be simple cards made of paper but there are several other types of business cards in the market that carry the logo of the company and other details.
There are different kinds of business cards. The common one is the standard business card, which is slightly flatter and wider than the typical business card. These business cards can carry on the person’s name, contact number and logo. Usually, they are used for communicating with potential customers and other business acquaintances, during formal introductions.
Another type of business cards is the social media card, which is slightly larger and has a larger text. Most social media cards have a lot of color and graphics; however, the social media card also includes a URL to the business’s social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. With this card, the company promotes their presence on these social media sites. One good thing with social media business cards is that they can serve as printed collateral when presented in a meeting or presentation venues.
Business cards with a URL or web address are very useful for any professional working in an international environment. A potential client may access a web page of the company through the internet. This means that the business cards will provide a means of contacting the company. The address on the card may contain a phone number so that a potential client can contact the company easily.
Cardstock business cards are very popular because they are easy to produce and give a high-quality image finish. These cardstock products are available in two different options – standard business cards and gloss cover business cards. Standard business cards have the same design and features as standard card stock, but they are printed on heavy cardstock that has a high quality finish.
Gloss cover business cards are available in two options – super heavy weight and standard gloss cover. Gloss cover business cards offer high-quality printing on a custom, matte and gloss cover with a high-gloss UV gloss finish. These high-quality products have a unique and modern look. Standard business cards can be produced in a wide variety of selections such as standard business card paper weight and four-color ink process. The company name, logo and message can be printed on standard business cards.
