Make The Most Out Of A Business Card

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Business cards can be difficult to get right. At a networking event, a person can receive so many business cards which all look exactly the same as the next, so it is important to make yours stand out from the crowd and to get your business card out for everyone to see.

A great idea for a business card is to include an image, such as your company’s logo or a picture that is relevant to your skills. Using bright colours and bold fonts can make a business card eye-popping and individual, however it is important to strike the correct balance between subtle and confusing. If too many colours or too much detail is used on a business card, it can make it difficult to look at or can disguise the information.

A tip for business card giving is to always have too many. There can be nothing worse than many people asking for your business card and finding that you have run out, as it could mean a loss of a potential buyer or investor in your company. A digital printing company have the facilities to print out as many as you need on the right kind of paper, and some can offer services such as laminating to make your card both protected and attention-grabbing. Digital printing can be a great tool in business card production.

It is necessary to make sure that all the necessary details for your business are on the card, and that the most important (such as your name, what you do and contact details) are highlighted so they stand out—such as making the font bigger or changing the colour.

Leaving business cards in strategic places can be a clever way to get ahead with business, and targeting the correct places can mean an increased interest in your company. Leaving business cards in places where people spend a lot of time, such as cafes, doctors’ waiting rooms or pubs could be beneficial as they may want to read something to pass the time. A business card is for the opportunist, and there could be many opportunities to get your business recognised throughout the day.

A business card is a simple tool that could bring in lots of money if correctly distributed, and it is usually up to the individual to distribute them to the world, and the more that are out, the higher the chance of new business!

Take Care Of Your Work By Laminating It

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Once a piece of work is completed after lots of careful thought, research and planning, it can feel like a huge weight has been lifted from the creator. If the document gets spoilt by rain, creasing or general wear and tear, it can be heartbreaking!

Laminating work is a great way of preserving it for years to come. Laminating services are readily available by some digital printing companies and the many benefits can outweigh the price of the lamination.

Keeping children’s work is a great way of documenting how far they’ve come in life, and gives all the family some funny memories to look back on. With laminated pieces such as a child’s work of art, the laminated product can be easily stuck on to walls, fridges or windows with blue-tack or a drawing pin. Laminating a piece of work also means it will become dust proof, and wiping the front of the work gently with a duster or piece of cloth can mean it stays in pristine condition.

Laminating business cards can also be a great idea. If a person gets handed many identical business cards at a networking event, there is a possibility they can become folded or disintegrated in storage. A laminated business card, however, both stands out from the rest of the cards and also has a protective plastic layer, ensuring the card doesn’t get damaged. Getting a business card noticed can be a difficult thing to do, but if it is obvious that much time and effort has been spent on the card, the rewards could be reaped when potential new business clients notice it.

When printing a picture, a UV varnish can give it a whole new level of presentation. A UV varnish forms a protective layer over the picture which can liven up the appearance of it, whilst protecting it from dust. UV varnishes can be used on many items, such as food menus or health and safety notices.

Laminating a certificate means it stays protected for a long time, and can be shown off to everyone whilst being adequately protected. If there is a piece of work that the creator holds great pride for, it can be a great tool of ensuring that noting bad will happen to it by the weather, stains or ripping.
