What should be on a contractor’s business card?

A successful business card includes the following elements:

  • Your name and title – this establishes who you are and your role with the company
  • Your company name and logo (if you have one) – this establishes your brand identity
  • Your preferred method of communication  – whatever you select, make sure it’s the easiest and best way for customers to reach you. It could be calls/texts direct to your cell phone, an office line, or an answering service. It’s perfectly acceptable to list more than one, too!
  • An email address – it’s the primary form of modern communication and an easy way for clients to reach out to you for quotes and information
  • Company website address – websites are a great way to passively provide information about your services to clients 
  • Contractor License Number  – Licensed contractors much include their license number in all forms of advertising
  • Other relevant certifications – this helps build credibility with potential clients

How much does it cost to buy 500 contractor business cards?

A popular choice for contractor business cards is our Copper Finish Metal Business Cards, starting at around $2.85/pc for 500 cards. Many contractors are also drawn to the raw-metal finish of our standard Stainless Steel Business Cards, which start at around $1.85 for 500 cards. 

When you’re thinking of investing in high quality business cards, My Metal Business Card is a great choice for remarkable cards that stand out from the competition. Many of our clients are unsure of what quantity to start with, and we recommend 500 as a great starting point, but other quantities are available. 
Pricing varies depending on the quantity you order. Generally speaking, the higher the quantity, the lower the piece price per card. The type of metal finish will also impact the piece cost of your cards.

The matte black metal finish creates a sleek base for the blue and white spot colors of the Crivello Bros logo.  We created a specialized shape for the cards to match the sloped logo and mirror the roof silhouette. 

As a 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 enhanced design element. 

WELD Done! –  Full Color Printed Black Metal Business Card

When one color just isn’t enough, there’s no need to settle. With the My Metal Business Card approach, you can take advantage of our full-color printing capabilities.  

Our design for MK Mechanical Contractors included a custom fabricated shape and unique silhouette. This enhanced the colorful border pattern, which represented the multicolored reflection and pattern of welding beads. Integrating elements of your work as a design element is one of the many ways we can create a truly custom card to represent your business.

Our design approach for this card allowed an existing standout logo do all the talking. Our rustic yet modern Copper Finish added a stylistic enhancement to this design, elevating its sense of style without compromising the overall design.

We used a surface etching technique to apply the image portion of the logo and custom cutouts for the business name. The contact information is also done in a surface etching for a tone-on-tone look in keeping with the company’s existing branding.
