In this economy, your business card is so much more than just a card. It’s the connection between you and your potential clients. It’s food on your dinner table. It’s your livelihood.
A couple of things: Try to avoid glossy cards (they are difficult to write on). Makes sure you use a font that is EASY to read. It’s a good idea to list your website address or at least the services you offer, if you don’t have a web address (and if you don’t have a web address what are you waiting for??)
I did a little research on unique cards that will surely get the attention of your potential clients! As always, kimtown can be commissioned to design your one of a kind card!
-Does it HAVE to be the generic 2.5×3.5? NO! Break away from the pack and get yourself something UNIQUE! The NARROW cards are becoming a big hit, especially when they are GREEN! Rounded corners are a nice touch too!
Make a great first impression with eco-friendly business cards from GreenerPrinter and show everyone you’re as passionate about your image as you are about the environment. Now available with rounded corners!
-Go SQUARE or even CIRCLE! Some AWESOME cards at GREAT prices were spotted at PREMIUMCARDS.NET Here is what I found:
The Square Business Card is one of best sellers and very popular in the photographic community for its square shape lending itself to fit both vertical and landscape portraits without wasted space. Comes in 16pt card stock and is printed on both sides. Your choice of Full Coverage Gloss Coating, Full Coverage Gloss on the front only, No Coating on the back or a Smooth Matte Finish.
The Cocktail Card –
One of the hottest business cards on the market today. This high quality business card was designed with the cocktail meeting in mind. The card is 3×3 inches and is printed on a premium 16pt card stock. Comes with 1/2 inch radius rounded corners. Your choice of Full Coverage Gloss Coating, Full Coverage Gloss on the front only, No Coating on the back or a Smooth Matte Finish.
The Cosmo Card –
The Cosmo Card is a simple but clever Circular Business Card with the same pincipals in mind of the Cocktail Card.

MINI METAL BUSINESS CARDS
-Next I found one of the coolest sits with uber cool BOOKLETS of cards. They come in mini, large and mighty. The company is SHINEBOX PRINT.
Perfect for business cards. And just about everything else that needs to be stylish and compact. Because you can make the front and back of every card different, they’re great for mini-catalogs and coupon books.
It does everything our Mini Booklet does, only bigger! So it’s perfect for brochures, postcards and portfolios. Like all of our booklets, cards may either be perforated or scored.
Our biggest booklet of all. If you have a lot to say or show, this booklet’s just the thing. It’s fifty percent bigger than our Large Booklet, so you have plenty of room to work with.
