Business cards are still important, even in this digital age, when you meet a new contact for the first time, a business card gets your key details over quickly and effectively. While function is important, the impression the design and print quality gives can make all the difference with prospects. We have extensive experience in creating effective business cards for both new start-ups and large national companies.
Business card design
A business card is often the first point of contact between your company and a potential customer. As such, it’s important to make sure that your business cards make a good first impression. One way to do this is to invest in creative design. A well-designed business card will communicate your brand message and stand out from the crowd. However, it’s also important to remember that not all designs are suitable for all businesses. We can create bespoke business cards that perfectly reflect and promote your product or service whilst strengthening your brand identity.
We use all our design experience, and the latest printing techniques, to ensure that your cards look professional and eye-catching. Our talented team of designers will work with you to create something as unique and memorable as your company. We understand that your business is unique and will strive to create a design that reflects this. Our attention to detail ensures the perfect result every time, so you can be sure that every aspect of your card will make the right impression.
Business card print options
Once you have a design that you’re happy with, it’s time to think about print. There are lots of different materials available, and we can advise you on the best option for your business cards. We can also help with any specialist finishes that you might want, such as foil blocking, embossing or die-cutting. Our years of experience in commissioning print helps to ensure the process is as smooth as possible, and that you’re happy with the result.
We can then also help with the distribution, if necessary. Ultimately, we make sure that your business cards look professional and reflect your brand in the best way possible. With our design and print services, you can be sure that your business cards will make an impact.
We can also provide ongoing support for your business card needs, whether it’s a one-off order or you need regular reprints for new staff members as the company grows, we can provide the help you need.
Business Card stock options
There are a wide range of options available when it comes to choosing the right card stock for your business cards. We can help you to choose the right option for your needs, whether you’re looking for a thick and luxurious card stock, a lightweight option, or something eco-friendly with our FSC or carbon neutral options.
With our range of card stocks, you can find the perfect material to represent your business and make a lasting impression. We can also provide advice on finishes, such as foil stamping or spot UV varnish. Our team will work with you through each step of the process to ensure that you get exactly what you need from your business cards. By the end of our collaboration, you will have unique and memorable cards that accurately represent your business and brand.
Economy of scale
Another important consideration when printing business cards is the economy of scale. The more cards you print, the lower the unit cost will be. This is something we can help you with, by advising on the best print quantities to suit your needs and which print options give you the best quality and the best value.
We understand that every business is different, and we will work with you to create a business card that perfectly represents your brand. To find out more about our business card design and print services, get in touch today.
“They say that you only get one chance to make a first impression and, but for a relatively short Covid induced hiatus, the business card, or ‘trade card’ as they were once known, has been instrumental in communicating business values since the early 17th century.
This doesn’t mean that they’re the dinosaur of communication, simply that they work, and will continue to do so long into the future. They are invaluable in not only giving that ‘first impression’, but in providing quick access to a service overview, contact details, and QR code links to digital content if required. Whilst we now have digital business cards and ‘smart’ address books as standard in business, not everybody is up to speed and I see these as running parallel with printed cards, rather than as a replacement, certainly in the short to medium term, and especially for SME’s.
I have attended more business meetings and networking events than most and can unequivocally say that the hard copy business card is still very much a part of face-to-face communication. In short, for an emotional connection, nothing beats something you can actually feel.“
Richard Taylor – MD, Simpsons Creative
Bishop’s Stortford BID
Simpsons Creative was approached by Bishop’s Stortford BID to create the rebrand and a range of marketing collateral that is shared throughout the town centre and the businesses. Part of the project included the design and print of various business cards for key members of the team, we used the distinctive branding we created for them to make their business cards standout.
Oliveti design and build outdoor kitchens that have been engineered from the ground up to meet their fundamental tenets of Strength, Utility and Beauty. We worked closely with Oliveti to establish their new brand, create a website and design and produce a range of marketing materials. Part of this process was creating a new business card that their sales team could use that would showcase the quality of the brand and its products. The business card design we came up with achieved this with strong branding and careful use of product photography.
Augment Corporate Finance
Martyn asked us to produce a brand for his new company, Augment Corporate Finance, which provides funding solutions that are appropriate for specific business needs from invoice finance to asset based lending and includes acquisition/MBI/MBO equity solutions. Working closely with the client we created a new brand alongside the business card to ensure that the final branding worked across a range of material.
