I remember business card design kiosks at major train stations where you could whip up a batch of distinctly mediocre business cards on the spot - and with so many DIY websites out there, the number of bland and forgettable business cards in circulation must be huge. I recently reminded a client that anything that comes from a template means that someone else out there will be using that very same design. If you want the graphic design and print to be something unique, then let me come up with the ideas for you.
As with anything printed on paper, you can get creative with the paper stock and printing method. I like a business card with feel-appeal so textured cards, metals and even plastics can give your card the edge, while different shapes or die-cutting can show show off the personality and innovation that your enterprise has to offer.
Using both sides of the card makes use of all surface area of the card and helps to keep the text count down, making it easier on the eye.
