The first thing you need to do is look for a completely new option. If you try to make some changes to an existing design, you will be unable to come up with something unique, thus your business will suffer in the end. Therefore, start designing your card from scratch in order to explore new ideas and test your creativity. Get some help from professional too, as they will update you about the latest trends. Another thing which needs to be done before designing a business card is a complete survey. However, you should look for bad business cards instead of good examples. This way, you will be able to figure out what ideas have been rejected by the general public. There is no harm in looking at some good options too, but that affects your creativity, as you look to copy those ideas rather than looking for new ones.
Better yet, appoint some professional to make the selection for you. They are your best option when it comes to designing a professional business card for they have been in this business for many years and know how to design and print a perfect business card that adorns your wallet. You may go in for plain white colored cards, or ivory cards as they are called, for making your business card. If you so wish, you might also go in for color business cards that are the rage nowadays. During your sojourn you might have also come across business card maker programs. These programs are helpful when you need to print a limited number of business cards immediately
The humble business card may be one of the most powerful marketing tools you possess, but it is surprising how often this is overlooked. It may be considered an essential item to hand out when you meet potential clients or suppliers, but it seems that most are just forgotten or consigned to the desk drawer along with the rest, collecting dust. But why? Used properly, business cards are the final stage of establishing a relationship that may well be essential to success. If handed to the right supplier or service provider, they could help establish a relationship from which you both benefit. If handed to a potential client, it could be the founding of an account that is the making of the business.
Early Days – It all started in Europe in the 16th Century, probably in France, when gentlemen used playing cards to write notes on to each other, and such was the acceptance of playing card games as a gentlemanly pursuit that they were accepted as legally binding documents. The note could be an IOU for a debt, a promissory note for money or a business agreement, and were known as Bearer Cards in recognition of the fact that once the card was signed the bearer had a contract in his hand. In 17th Century France the cards then evolved into visiting cards, where they were used to pass general notes and act as general calling cards when gentlemen were out visiting friends and businesses. This evolved quickly in to a form of social etiquette for the gentry and well to do where, rather than just dropping in unannounced, a card was first presented by a servant to check when it would be convenient to actually call in person. The convention spread quickly throughout Europe and calling cards became firmly established as the way to introduce yourself and arrange meetings.
