If you are in the business world, you know how important it is to have a great business card. With a good business card, people can remember you, and that is the key… to be remembered.
But you want to be remembered on the positive side. Have you ever received a business card from someone and looked at it and said “this card is pathetic!” and threw it away! I know I have. I’ve received cards that I can tell are printing on someones home computer with some office depot templates.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to be a snob and put people down who are trying to save some money on printing them, but honestly the coupons and deals that you can get at some of these websites, you would actually spend less money and save a ton of time just ordering them online.
The best part is that if you are looking to get great designs, you can get that at a very low price as well.
So let’s start at the beginning, getting business cards designed. The cost varies depending on your budget. Let’s assume you don’t want to spend a lot of money.
Here are some options for business cards designs:
1 – Use your own creativity – Use you own skills with a type of graphics software (unless you are a graphic designer, probably not a good idea)
2 – Use templates – Different templates are provided at the various websites when you are placing your order. This is actually not a bad idea, the only problem is that you may have the identical card as someone else.
3 – Hire someone – Hire someone to design a card for you. One of the best places you can get this done for really, really cheap is http://www.fiverr.com. At this site you can get stuff done for only $5!
Just go to the site, and in the left side search bar type in “business card” and you will see a bunch of people willing to do the best design for you!
When using this website, a great tip is that when you get the results, click on “rating” on the top of the screen and it sorts the people who are willing to do the job but their rating on the website, therefore you are getting the best of the best.
Most of the times, you will have to have a logo for them, you provide them with the logo and they provide you with the design. Then you take the design and upload it into the website where you are ordering your business cards – it is that easy!
Easy and Affordable
So, don’t let design frighten you from moving forward with getting your cards created. This step is one of the easiest and can be extremely affordable (if you know where to go to get it done).
After you have your designs (since it is so cheap, why not order from multiple people and choose the best designs), then you are on your way to a great looking business card!
