Last week the Wall Street Journal featured My Metal Business Card in an article titled, “Business Cards Aren’t Dead, They’re Just Getting Weirder.” The author, Sue Shellenbarger, reached out to the world’s leading source for Metal Business Cards to find out what kind of business card stands out and WHY.

With the internet and social media at our fingertips, it’s easy to look up a business or professional contact. Thereby, most would argue that business cards are a thing of the past. However ask any My Metal Business Card client, and they’ll tell you that’s simply not true.

It’s the type of business card you have that makes the difference!

Traditional paper business cards get a two second glance and end up in the trash. We all know it- you’ve been there too. They simply don’t make an impact. It’s unfortunate, but paper business cards put you in the category of every other Joe-Schmoe’s business. What they lack is the ‘wow’ factor that unique, Metal Business Cards have.

During her research, Wall Street Journal’s Sue Shellenbarger discovered what we have come to live and breathe here every day at My Metal Business Card – one of a kind business cards offer the following:

  • Start a conversation – people stop to admire the quality of your cards and thus spend much longer focusing on YOU. They are intrigued so they ask questions – it’s the perfect introduction!
  • Tactile experience – most paper business cards feel the same. Hand someone a metal business card, and they act as if it’s a present. They feel it, turn it over, inspect it and usually try to give it back!
  • Instant and unforgettable impression – One-of-a-kind business cards, namely Metal Business Cards, are going to give you the means to instantly stand out and make an unforgettable impression. And ultimately, this is the goal – right?


Invest in You

Wall Street Journal also interviewed a loyal customer of ours, Ron Wood. Mr. Wood, a photographer from Fort Lauderdale, Florida mentioned,

“He’s willing to pay nearly $2 a pop for his metal business cards because people never throw them away. Recipients often say, ‘This is your card? Are you giving this to me? Are you sure?’ ”

With that in mind, our Founder and CEO, Craig Martyn explains, “You don’t walk down the street throwing them to just anybody.”

Undoubtedly, quality business cards are more expensive than paper cards, but in this business, what you pay for is what you get. You’ll find that it’s worth spending more because you’re investing in YOU!
