Are business cards still relevant? I admit I haven’t had one for a long time, however I have produced millions of them. These days we have LinkedIn, Facebook and even your email signature all working as our virtual business card.

But, what do you use in the real world? In my experience there are a few essentials to consider:

    1. Use a professional design service
    2. Make it clear and legible
    3. Print on both sides
    4. Have it coated
    5. Maintain you brand integrity
    6. You can be smaller than standard, but don’t be larger
    7. Use all available contact details
    8. Avoid embellishment (embossing, foiling, raised print)
    9. Always hand over more than one card
    10. Dont be this guy:
