It’s always wonderful working with a client who wants to stand out from the crowd. But it’s not very often that this happens. Designing business cards for Andrea was not only a creative journey, it was full of creative satisfaction and excitement at every stage of the process.
Business cards come a dime a dozen. But let’s step back and understand the concept behind business cards, shall we? They are basically a piece of stationary exchanged for contact information. But there’s more to it that meets the eye. With so many business cards exchanging hands, it’s critical that your business card makes a solid, memorable impression.
Also with the contact-list going digital, a good business card should allow you to digitize it — a quick scan and save to your phone’s contact list. Business cards often get lost in a decks. This shouldn’t mean a loss of the contact info. It should be right where it belongs and be available with the press of a button. After all naming your nutrition business and business cards are one of the first things you need when you start nutrition consultation.
What are QR Codes
A QR code is basically a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone. QR codes can trigger action like initiating a call, opening a URL etc. For a business card, saving the contact info is a good trigger. When you scan this code it will ask you to save the contact information.
Normally business cards are just one sided and that does the job (at least a lot of us think like that). But a business card is a great piece of table-top advertising. They come in many shapes and sizes, folded and textured and what not. A backside with beautiful stationary not only makes it eye catching, it also makes it a perfect little piece of advertising.
I only do premium work. And when it came to this business card, this was no exception. I always get prints from Moo. They print premium, provide a lot of options and have a great service. I’d even say they are the best in their industry.
I bundled The SlimCase as a gift with the order… who doesn’t like gifts! My premium business cards designs did put a big smile on the client’s face and the little surprise gift sure would have made it special.
Good work comes at a price. But if you are willing to go that extra mile, you are special and you do stand apart.
