Fast Business Cards

Updated on August 5, 2009

In the world of business, communication and networking are as important as any other aspect of running a company no matter how big or how small. Easily the most popular way of communicating your business details to prospective clients, customers, potential partners and investors, bank managers, accountants, lawyers and associates is by handing them a business card.

A business card is something tangible that you can transfer into the hand of the recipient. It contains all the essential details about your company that the other person will need in order to get in contact with you and that's all it needs to do.

So if you are running a business and have just realized that you are almost run out of business cards, you need to replace them fast. Business cards are the lifeblood of your company's expansion and growth and to be without them is like being without a telephone. Time to get some new ones printed fast, so if you are thinking of getting a new batch quickly, here is some information that might be helpful to you.

Cards for Your Business

One of the main things you need to think about when ordering fast business cards is the layout and design of the card. While it is important to get them printed on the best quality card you can afford, it is even more important to make sure the printing is sharp and clear.

Layout is always important and that really depends upon the nature of your business and whether you want to portray a serious aspect, for instance if your business were in the legal or financial sector, or a more fun aspect if you were in the business of making party balloons or organizing fun events.

Getting your business information across legibly and clearly is far more important than adding graphics in the form of overlaid photographs or cartoon character avatars or having the latest fashionable looking border to clutter things up, unless that's the image you want to convey to prospective clients, customers, partners or investors. It might be useful to look at the things you should avoid doing when ordering a fast batch of business cards online or from a brick and mortar printing store.

Business Card Design House of Horrors

Whatever you do when agreeing on a design layout for a fast business cards printing run you should always ensure that the typeface of your business details is clearly readable. It's also vitally important that the text font used is not flowery or fancy to the point that some letters or numbers can look very much alike. Absolutes or ambiguity in this respect can make or break a business.

If you are handing one of your new professional business cards over top a prospective investor in your business who can make a really bug difference to your life, you want to make sure he can read those details. So that when he phones you the next day or the next week, he doesn't read the numbers wrong by confusing a 3 with an 8 or something like that. Similarly, if he is going to contact you via email, then you want to make absolutely sure that the email address he types in matches yours and not your competitor down the road!

Similarly, you don't want to have your text in blue on a conflicting background so it hurts the eyes to look at it.

People like to read black text on a white background because that's what they're most used to and that's the easiest way to read anything while being kind on the eyes.

Your business cards are meant to convey yoru business contact details to their recipients so they can contact you later on. If you can be ansolutely certain that the fast business cards you are ordering do exactly that, then go ahead and order them!
