Why should you make a business card?

In today's interconnected world, business cards might seem redundant when everyone has a profile on a networking platform like LinkedIn, Gust or Opportunity. But this corporate classic remains a powerful tool for establishing meaningful connections and leaving a lasting impression in both virtual and real-world interactions.

While online networking offers convenience and reach, in-person networking still holds immense value. A well-designed business card serves as a tangible representation of your brand, fostering memorable face-to-face connections that can't be replicated digitally. Moreover, business cards have evolved with technology, incorporating QR codes to bridge the gap between print and digital. These codes allow the addition of more information than ever, as well as links to your portfolio or social media profiles.

Creating unique, eye-catching designs that set your card apart is also easier than ever. With advancements in printing technology, there are unparalleled customisation options. From unique shapes and sizes to innovative finishes and materials, you can tailor your card to stand out from the competition. And with easy-to-access online printing, even the smallest company can get their hands on this useful tool. For those with limited cash to splash, there’s also economy business cards . These budget-friendly options still uphold quality and professionalism, making them accessible to all.

What do you put on a business card?

On a business card, it's essential to include standard contact information like your name, job title, company, phone number, email address and a physical address if you have one. Incorporate branding elements like your company logo, colours and tagline to reinforce brand recognition and professionalism. For an interactive element, you can also leverage QR codes or CAMIcodes on your business card to enhance its functionality.

These codes can direct recipients to various online resources such as your portfolio, website, social media profiles or promotional videos, providing them with easy access to additional information about you and your services. Including QR codes adds a modern touch to your card and maximises its utility by seamlessly integrating offline and online interactions. Whether it's showcasing samples of your work, sharing testimonials or inviting contacts to connect on social media, QR codes empower you to make a lasting impression and facilitate further engagement beyond the initial exchange of business cards.

How you should design a business card?

When it comes to creating your very own business card, the possibilities are endless.
