Business Card Quality
The quality of your business cards comes at a price but it’s a no-brainer. Printing on thinner stock (paper) can save money, but it’s money you should be spending. A business card represents your business – it needs to be a good representative and not disintegrate after environmental exposure. By using a good stock and a good finish in conjunction with a great design, great results can be achieved, giving you confidence whenever you whip out one of your cards.

Business Card Quantity
In regards to print media, everything gets cheaper the more you print (to a point). 500 business cards will be cheaper to print per card than 250 business cards. It’s important to take this into account when you’re producing business cards, or any print media, because while it’s important not to print too many or too few, it’s also important to make sure you get a good price per card. Sometimes this might mean printing more of something – after all, if you’re going to use them anyway, you might as well get them at a good price in the first place.
Using your business cards
Business cards have a number of purposes and they’re all useful. Firstly, they establish you as being serious about your business. Also, when you hand one out as you meet somebody, it positions you in the context of the services that you offer. You’re a business-person, not a social person. It gives the person you’re meeting the opportunity to appraise you in light of that fact. Thirdly, it is another avenue along which you can be contacted. Your card can be used to find you, find out more about you, and to get in touch with you. And it goes without saying that business cards form an important part of your brand. They compliment your website design and help form a continuous impression for your customers and stakeholders as they interact with your business and your brand. These are all helpful things for you and your business.
How much do business cards cost?
Like any purchase for your business, the cost of business cards needs to be weighed against the benefits and the alternatives. Getting a great card is a good way to set yourself up for success. Most importantly, your business card is your brand and the most concise and tangible expression that exists. How your card looks, feels and functions sets you up in a certain way – a way that can be advantageous for you. For example, what if your logo was a talking point? Then handing over your card would also be the start of a conversation about your logo, which could lead to a conversation about your business and beyond. From meetings like this, great things follow.
