If you own your own business then you should try and have business cards made. You don’t have to spend a fortune on them, but having a business card will make you look professional and is an easy way to pass on your contact details. IF someone is given a business card then they may put it in their wallet or on a notice board, it is a lot less likely to get chucked away than a scrap of paper with a number on it.

Business cards are often passed around quite freely at networking meetings, conferences or events but it can be easy to forget where a business card came from and why you have it. You need to make sure that your business cards stand out for all the right reasons. You want someone to remember your card and go to it should they need your services.

Don’t always be fooled in to buying cheap business cards. Research has shown that business cards that have been printed on better quality card are often perceived in a better way, leave a stronger impression and help to build your brand.

If you want to be a little quirky and stand out from the crowd  then why not go for a card that is not standard business card size. Choosing one with rounded corners, mini business cards or even square ones will surely make your card get noticed.
