What should be on a contractor’s business card?

When creating your card, you want to consider the different methods you would like clients to get a hold of you. Do you primarily communicate through your cellphone, or would you rather have your calls directed to an office line? As the primary form of modern communication, we strongly suggest adding your email address to the cards.

Here are the top suggestions for information that should be included on a contractor’s business card:

  • Name and Title
  • Company Name
  • Company Logo 
    • Important for brand reputation and recognition
  • Cell phone number, office phone number or both!
  • Email address
  • Company website address
  • Contractor License Number 
    • Licensed contractors must include their license number in all forms of advertising.
  • Other relevant certifications
    • These help to set yourself apart from the competition right from the get go!

What is the difference between a builder and contractor?

A builder typically handles the actual construction of homes and buildings – foundation setting, framing, roofing, etc. Usually builders do not work on mechanical or electrical projects.

Builders are primarily responsible for:

  • Operation of heavy machinery
  • Demolition
  • Building structural foundations and framework
  • Various other tasks, not usually including electrical or plumbing

A general contractor manages a team of subcontractors and oversees the entire construction project. General contractors focus on the overall project and manages multiple teams to make sure the plan stays on schedule. 

General contractors are primarily responsible for:

  • Hiring/sourcing all subcontractors
  • Obtaining necessary project permits
  • Managing realistic timelines
  • Managing and budgeting out the total construction cost for the project

Metal Contractor Business Card Examples:

Cracking Open Opportunity – Black Metal Bottle Opener Card

Black Metal Bottle Opener For Contractors

J.P. Crivello of Crivello Bros. Construction values his strong client relations and wanted to extend that sentiment through a card that fosters shared communication.

The matte black metal finish creates a sleek base for the blue and white spot colors to speak loud and clear. We created a specialized shape for the cards to match the sloped logo, and mirror the silhouette of a roof. As an added bonus and tribute to the construction theme, we applied a chain link fence pattern to the background in a semi-gloss black spot color for a subtle pattern and hint of design.
