A good business card is central to many professions, especially those that rely on in-person networking at large events. Your calling card can be the difference between making an impression or being ultimately overlooked.
Imagine going to an event and being asked for a way to contact you. A phone number or email scribbled on a scrap of paper may get the job done, but what if instead you handed over an elegant, well-made business card? That’s sure to leave a lasting impact on a potential client’s mind.
And in some careers, not having a business card is seen as downright unprofessional. Despite the shift to digital, business cards are still widely used in the professional world. It’s the best way to do networking face to face and leave an event with new contacts.
So you’re going to need a business card, but what’s the best way to obtain one? Hiring a designer is expensive even for such a small but important item. But making it yourself from scratch with no design experience at all is definitely not a good idea.
