The Chroma online printing shop has something for everyone. After all, people want to design business cards in a way that matches the nature of their business. The appearance of custom business cards speaks volumes about a company: it presents its corporate identity and, indirectly, also its industry. An engineering company will print business cards different from those ordered by an advertising agency.
Chroma offers the following types of business cards depending on paper:
What are business cards? To put it simply, they are printed rectangular pieces of paper with details of their owners. The details usually include the address, phone number and, first of all, the name of the represented company.
Business cards were already known in the 15th century China, where they were used only by state officials. In the modern era, visiting cards appeared several centuries later in France, Germany and other European countries. Even then, they were not well-known. They were reserved mainly for representatives of higher social class and those in power, who had their own rituals connected with exchanging cards.
In time, as democratization progressed, business cards became the basis for all professional relations. Nowadays, it is hard to imagine a business meeting without an exchange of business cards.
Their advice is to remember the human factor and consider everything through the eyes of future product users, starting from the design stage. As far as business cards are concerned, the users are those who will hold them and look at them briefly form a relatively short distance.
The other tip is to avoid overload and visual contradictions. Identity needs to be built consistently.
The third piece of advice: keep in mind that a business card is a very tiny printed object, much smaller than a flyer, poster or calendar. Make sure that no element of your business card design feels out of place as this may create a negative impression for those who receive your business card at a meeting.
Business cards are needed by employees of small family businesses and CEOs of global corporations in equal measure. Business cards are exchanged during every new business interaction. They are useful whenever the first impression counts – the impression of contacting a trustworthy professional.
Of course, the whole surroundings contribute to this impression: the interior design of the office, the building, the conduct of the staff. But in the end, we reach for the tiny but significant object – a business card. It must be consistent with the whole branding and corporate identity.
Business cards are so diverse because they are used by thousands of companies from hundreds of various industries. From serious businesses, such as law firms or accounting firms, to ones addressed to young people and engaged in the entertainment industry, such as TV stations. From small family businesses to industrial giants.
