Business cards have one purpose – make an impression that lasts. Here are 7 powerful tips to ensure your business card will be noticed and remembered.

1.MATERIAL: Paper cards get trashed, instantly. It goes without saying, metal business cards WILL make an impact. In order to stand out, you must be different. In a world with millions of paper cards, go green AND make a lasting impression with metal – we’ve got you covered!

2.DESIGN: Your card should fit your brand. The style, colors and overall aesthetics must convey who you are and what you do. Fun and quirky? Serious and bold? Your card design needs to mirror your brand image, to ensure the proper message is received and remembered.

3.SHAPE: Most business cards are 3.5 X 2 inches. A custom shape card, or a card with cut-through areas, can give a custom look unlike any other. At www.mymetalbusinesscard.com, all custom shapes and cut-through areas are included in the price – we’ll even design the card to your specifications.

4.THICKNESS: As noted in tip #1, the feel of your card will say nearly as much as the text within. Our metal business cards are made from .5mm stainless steel – roughly the same thickness as the credit cards in your wallet. This thickness is bold, different, and makes a strong impression. We also offer a variety of different thicknesses to accommodate your preference.

5.FINISH: Paper and plastic generally come in one finish, and if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Our metal cards can come in natural Stainless Steel, Matte Black Metal, Copper Finish and Brass Finish. Furthermore, many of these finishes are offered in brushed or textured versions. When your client feels a metal card, the finish will further enhance your image to leave that lasting impression.

6.DURABILITY: Paper and plastic can wear out. Get paper wet and watch out! Metal business cards can withstand all types of typical, and non-typical handling. (We’ve even heard of people using metal cards as windshield ice scrapers!)

7.WOW FACTOR: If you can follow tips #1-6, you will achieve that desired wow factor. With metal business cards, you can rest assured that your prospects will hold onto your card for years, showing them off to their friends and family!
