Here at Idiya Consulting, our team firmly believes that people should be excited to hand out their business card. Once you start to lose that spark, it’s time to consider upgrading to a look that is more current and note-worthy. We provide the best solutions for our clients, and often, they include one of these 3 business card upgrades. Take a look:
1. Suede Cards
One way to give your business cards some extra oomph is as simple as changing the texture on it. One of our current favorites is a suede. Suede cards have a very smooth and comforting feel to them. They make a big impression — they’re thicker with 19pt paper and they have such a soft and elegant feel.
This is something really unique and can give your business a high-end presentation just based on the texture changes.
2. Foil Elements
If your business card could use a little pizzazz, then foil might be your answer. Adding a stamp of foil to your cards can not only make a lasting impression, but it can make certain aspects of your card really stand out for that high-end look.
Most people think of the traditional gold and silver when they think of foil, but it is actually very versatile in its array of color, size and overall visual appeal. In this example, we introduce Rose Gold Foil to complete this brand's aesthetic.
3. Colored Edges
For a simple and affordable way to make your cards stand out, you might want to consider adding color the edges. Not only does this technique make your entire card look more cohesive and pulled together, it also gives some love to an often-forgotten area of the card.
We love seeing clients take their main logo colors and add that sleek edge to their cards. This works best with thicker cards for a more dramatic effect.
If you’re considering an upgrade to your business cards, there are a few things to consider first.
1. Do you have the right budget?
While the options above are each great for different businesses, they may not all be the best solution for your budget. Some business card upgrades are only a few dollars, while others may be double or triple that price. Many of the upgrades range anywhere from $30.00 – $200.00, but your final cost depends on which upgrade you want to go with. There are so many different combinations you can do that will fluctuate the price.
2. What’s your deadline?
We love creating new and improved cards for an event or conference a client plans to attend, but things get difficult when they need the upgraded cards in only a couple of days. Many of the business card upgrades above require extensive time for cutting, gluing, drying, and quality assurance checkpoints. For your new cards to look flawless, most of our upgrades simply can’t be rushed.
Here at Idiya Consulting, many people want to know how we can improve their cards. We can suggest certain business card upgrades based on a your budget and deadline, but to really provide the best solution for your business, it’s best to schedule a consultation.
