Imagine going to a convention where thousands of business cards are exchanged among thousands of people. With all this sharing of information, how can you make yourself memorable for your future clients? A great way to be memorable is to have a memorable business card.
The possibilities for a great business card are endless. Unique designs stand out from the crowd and the only limit is your imagination and budget. Here are several ways you can make your calling card unforgettable.
Choose a unique material for your business card
Plastic or metal business cards are not a conventional business card material, but they are not very unusual now either. The trend seems to be that many companies are opting for metal or plastic contact cards so their novelty has already faded.
Edible business cards
Businesses can now make business cards out of edible materials, such as chocolate, sugar cookies, peanuts, and jerky. If you're in the food business, you might want to give away those kinds of cards. But make sure they have a piece of paper attached with your name and contact information if the customer ever decides to eat your tasty contact cards.
Making it functional
Some of the most memorable business card designs are those that serve other purposes than just being a piece of paper to put your name and contact number on. They have practical uses so that whoever receives them does not really want to throw them away. For example, business cards can be punched or folded to become a catapult or penny shooter that can launch small projectiles into the air for office entertainment.
Regardless of how you decide to make your calling card memorable, don't forget that the calling card should represent your business. You don't want to offend your customers or deviate from what your business is all about. With that in mind, you can be sure that your customers will never forget you.
