Business cards

FAQs & Information

What is a business card?

A business card includes the giver’s name, company or business affiliation (usually with a logo) and contact information such as street addresses, telephone number(s), fax number, e-mail addresses and website.

The modern competitive marketplace demands a well-designed marketing strategy. This involves the use of printed materials, the most primary being visiting cards or business cards.

Now they may include social media addresses such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter. Traditionally many cards were simple black text on white stock; today a professional business card will sometimes include one or more aspects of striking visual design.

What is the difference between a business card and a visiting card?

Difference Between Business Card and Visiting Card.

• Business cards are cards that tell about a person’s position in a company or business along with details of products or services offered by the business

• Business cards are meant to attract more customers and are especially useful in business meets and conferences

• Visiting cards are also known as calling cards, and are mostly used by those in marketing or sales profession to introduce themselves after they come to a person’s place

• Visiting cards typically contain the name of the person and his contact number

Business cards are similar to visiting cards as the intention of giving one’s business card is to invite him or his acquaintances to use products of services of giver’s company. A business card typically contains more information than a visiting card as the real purpose here is to inform about one’s company, products and services along with contact information.

Business cards are generally more important than visiting cards and people keep them for future reference. They serve an important purpose in business meets and conferences where one has the opportunity to get business through these cards.

Why do companies use business cards?

Business cards help you stand out, especially in today’s digital environment where business meetings are much more casual and mostly digital. If you can present your client or potential customer with a great business card, you’re much more likely to be remembered later on by that person.

Why are high-end business cards important?

A decent business card shows that you care about your presentation. It should be readable and legible and free from anything unrelated to its message. This does not mean dull, unattractive or boring. It does mean clean and to the point (within reason).

A good-looking, well-designed business card is a convenient way to give good impressions and a degree of credibility on others as well as to self-identify who you are and what you are.
